2009 Honda Civic Hybrid
By Alex Kramer

Pros:

  • Impressive gas mileage
  • Capable chassis and suspension
  • Luxurious leather interior
  • Elegant navigation/stereo system

Cons:

  • Meager acceleration
  • Mild hybrid = no silent running
  • Squeal-happy tires
  • Lack of rear folding seats

Introduction
For over 30 years the Honda Civic has represented rock solid reliability, good value, and excellent fuel efficiency. Take these qualities and add an extra helping of fuel efficiency and you get the Civic Hybrid, one of the most efficient cars on the road, with an EPA estimated 40/45 mpg (city/highway). In addition to being frugal at the pump, the Civic Hybrid now offers a surprising amount of luxury, courtesy of an optional leather interior, heated seats and a touch-screen navigation system. Combine these creature comforts with the Civic’s reputation and good looks, and you have a car that should appeal to more than just the eco-friendly crowd.
