Honda Civic
The post World War 2 motorcycle manufacturer first ventured into the automobile industry with the creation of the S500 sports car, however to break into the lucrative international markets Honda needed to produce a vehicle perceived as 'economical', having the appeal of the venerable Mini, while offering new levels of ride and comfort.

With fully independent suspension, a light alloy engine, good performance and a reasonable price tag the Civic became an instant success in Europe and the US, and Honda was now perceived as a serious car manufacturer and competitor. More upmarket version of the vehicle followed (Accord/Prelude), but it was the humble Civic that enabled Honda to become the car giant that it is today.
