If I wanted to buy a cover for my car what size should I buy ?

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Thank you for writing in. Good choice on keeping your new car covered! There are extensive benefits for protecting your car against the sun and weather. 

If you have the option to shop around in town or online, then you will likely be able to find a car cover designed specifically for your 2018 Honda Civic. These will fit correctly and be tailored to fit the mirrors and wheels. There are many brands that manufacture car covers for specific models, and the Honda Civic is a common sedan that you can find a good selection of covers for. 

If you do not have the option of buying a cover that is designed specifically for your model of Honda, then you will want to buy a cover that is just slightly larger than the dimensions of your car, which are 177-183″ L x 71″ W x 55-57″ H. It will likely say "XL Sedan" or "Full Size Sedan". Good luck!
