Will our Honda Civic get along with our newborn?

The wife is pregnant and is due in a few months. We currently share a Honda Civic EX 2002, which has been a dream of reliability and ease of use. (It's been the first and only car for either of us, and we're both in our 30s.) It looks like there's more than ample room for the car seat in the back, but how have those of you Civic drivers with actual experience doing this fared? We love our Civic; will it love our child?
Most likely we will also have to buy a second car as well. I'd prefer not to commit to a minivan or something behemoth-y. Obviously safety is the primary consideration, but I also would like something that gets relatively good gas mileage and won't break the bank, as we need the money to spend on other things as well. Any suggestions for what we might look at?
