Honda Civic

Scheduled for launch this spring, the 2012 Honda Civic was designed to meet the diverse needs of the compact-vehicle buyer. Two models, the Civic Hybrid and the all-new Civic HF, will make the entire redesigned ninth-generation Civic lineup more fuel efficient, providing more than 40 mpg on the highway.
The economical Civic HF model was built on the tradition of Honda fuel efficiency and it will be the most fuel-efficient gasoline-only powered Civic in the lineup, available with a 1.8-liter i-VTEC engine and aimed to earn EPA-estimated fuel economy1 of 41 mpg on the highway.
For the first time comprising a lithium-ion battery, the 2012 Civic Hybrid will be powered by a larger 1.5-liter i-VTEC engine and it is expected to reach an EPA-estimated city/highway combined fuel economy1 of 45 mpg. Honda ECO AssistTM technology, which enhances efficient vehicle operation, together with aerodynamic componnets will feature both models.
Offering sporty performance, fuel economy, smart packaging and alternative fuel and long-term value, the Civic successfully becomes the only model in the industry which delivers on all fronts.
Furthermore, the Civic Coupe, the Civic Sedan and Civic GX Natural Gas models also promise to ensure improved fuel economy as compared to the current model.
Besides the more efficient fuel economy, more performance is delivered by the new Civic lineup, especially with the Civic Si sedan and coupe models which will be mated to a new six-speed manual transmission and will be equipped with a larger and more powerful 2.4-liter engine.
