    Default The New Civic: Ride height?

    Hey everyone,

    Always been a VW owner but finding their new models a bit bland. The new civic looks pretty sweet so I'm thinking of making the switch!

    I'm just wondering does the suspension of Civic models lower as you go up the range with VW?

    For example a normal Golf comes with basic suspension which is quite high - but when you get to the model I have (The GT) it comes with sport suspension so looks a lot sportier.

    I've been looking at the Civic Sport 182PS VTEC Turbo 6MT and customised 18 inch alloys to an OTR price of about 25k. But I'm wondering will the big wheels have a bigger gap between that wheel and arch - and make the car sit high on the road compared to a Golf with sportier suspension. Or does the sport model come with sportier suspension as standard. I can't find any notice of it in the specs.

    Thanks a lot!
