A carry-over from 2006, the Civic Hybrid is a four-door five-passenger family car available in only one trim level that features a hybrid gasoline/electric engine capable of achieving EPA estimates of 49 City and 51 Highway MPG. The 1.3-liter four-cylinder engine produces 110 horsepower and is linked to a C.V.T. automatic transmission.Read more Read less
Honda's Civic line was completely redesigned and revamped for 2006, with a sleeker, more rakish body style, more standard equipment, and revised powertrains and components throughout, so for 2007 the news is relatively minor. A new high-performance Si sedan joins the lineup and features the same equipment (including the powerful 197-horsepower engine) as the Si coupe. Also, the availability of XM satellite radio has been expanded.
Standout styling; fuel economy; plenty of green choices with Hybrid and natural-gas GX; safety features; reputation for reliability
Honda has built a longstanding reputation with the Civic, as being one of the sportiest, most fun-to-drive small cars, yet one with the highest fuel economy and lowest emissions. The 2007 Civic, fresh of last year's redesign, adds a new emphasis on styling, safety, and has more standard equipment, at a very competitive price.
