What is my car?

Are you not sure exactly what to call your car's body type? Are you a little confused about what a 2-door and a 3-door are? Here is a very basic overview of the body shapes available and how this website categorises them.

The 1st generation Civic was available in a number of different configurations depending on year and market. The two most common body types are a 2-door and 3-door. There is also a 4-door, 5-door and wagon. Other than the wagon which was a 1500 only (cvcc version in some markets), all were available as both a 1200 and 1500. Not all variants were available in all markets.

2-door (Boot or Trunk model)

This version has two doors and a small boot at the back, hinged upwards below the fixed rear windscreen.

3-door (Hatchback)

This version has two doors and a hatch at the back (this is the third door). It might be referred to as a 2-door hatchback but 3-door is more correct. The hatch is hinged at the back of the roof and opens to around halfway down the taillights. The rear windscreen is part of the hatch.

4-door (Boot or Trunk model)

This version has four doors and a small boot at the back, hinged upwards below the fixed rear windscreen.

5-door (Hatchback)

This version has four doors and a hatch at the back (this is the fifth door). It might be referred to as a 4-door hatchback but 5-door is more correct. The hatch is hinged at the back of the roof and opens to around the bottom of the taillights. The rear windscreen is part of the hatch.

Wagon

Similar to a 5-door (it may even be referred to as a 5-door in some parts of the world) in that it has four door and an opening tailgate but the body is quite a bit longer at the back than an 5-door to give extra load carrying capacity. The rear doors are also longer and the tailgate is larger, opening all the way to the bumper.
