2009 Honda Civic Hybrid

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


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

For over 30 years the Honda Civic has represented rock solid reliability, good value, and excellent fuel efficiency.

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.
