24: Honda Civic
Perhaps no passenger car is more iconic than the Honda Civic. The compact car was instrumental in providing affordable transportation during the fuel crisis of the 1970s and 1980s. The Civic is a popular compact car and the cheap price tag makes it appealing to young first-time buyers. These are the most likely recipients to be involved in a collision, not to mention the fact that the vast majority of Civics are modified.
The Civic had experienced a triumphant run in the automotive industry, but the car has also experienced 4,397 over the study period of five years. This doesn’t mean that the Civic isn’t a safe car, but there are more fetal crashes involving this compact car than many other models that are on the market.
