5. Honda Civic
Coming from one of the most popular car manufacturers in the Philippines, the Honda Civic may indeed be branded as also one of the best selling cars to date. With its relative form factor and high-technology increasing from the current generation to the next, this is indeed a default car for an average golfer.
Safety is also a priority to the Honda Civic that’s why it was chosen as a Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
Honda recently replaced their five-speed automatic transmission with an even better one – the CVT or continuously variable transmission that promises better and smaller fuel consumption.
The boot compartment is huge for your usual golf equipment but the backseats are a little bit pushed, thus, 6-footers can have a hard time on finding comfort at their seats. Being a compact car, the Honda Civic is really for those who don’t usually bring the whole pack for a play of golf.

It’s not easy to actually pick the right car for you especially if you have very specific needs. Usually, a golfer’s car must have a huge boot, an easy drive, advanced navigation, and huge space for passengers and the cars above could serve you well under those specs and expectations.
