I don't get why everyone keeps saying the Civic has low ground clearance, its 170mm, same as the Sonata, the NHC has 160mm and the laura 164mm. Or at least what I've seen per the specs on a few car sites.

Of all the cars above, I found the Civic the most luxurious, hence went for that. I know the fuel economy is not the best, but for the amount I drive its ok.

I would have liked the GV MT, but its way beyond my budget. Good luck with whatever you decide, cheers!

Skoda's A.S.S is nowhere near to decent IMO.

Its the wheelbase that makes the difference and makes it hit all the humps .

GC is not always revealed by a number. The measured GC is simply the lowest point on the car. But if that lowest point is very near the wheels, then it doesn't matter so much. On the other hand, if that lowest point is near the middle of the car, then it will scrape. Never go by GC figures. The only way is to drive the car over a hump

Ground clearance is not just the figure that you get in the spec sheet, it real life usage it depends on where the suspension low points are located vs the types and hence though in theory the GC may be higher in a vehicle it can still hit the speed bumps more than a car with lower GC due to entry and exit angles on the humps.
