The second-gen Civic was even more of a success than the first. Its wheelbase was slightly longer by two inches, and both of its two engine options – a 1.3- and 1.5-liter – now used the CVCC (or, Compound Vortex Controlled Combustion) design that was introduced on the update in 1975. This new Civic was also offered in more trims, either as a three-door hatchback, a four-door sedan, a five-door hatchback, or a five-door wagon.
