The second generation Civic arrived in 1980, and was another big hit for Honda. Capitalizing on the success of the original Civic, the new car was a huge improvement in all aspects. It was much cleaner and smoother looking, larger, and had a fantastic front-wheel drive platform. Also, for the first time, in addition to the hatch and wagon, a sedan was available. This '81 wagon is equipped with a 5-speed, and features the early cars' circular headlights.
