2009 Honda Civic Hybrid

Looks like a Civic, drives a Civic, but at 50 mpg the Civic Hybrid achieves significantly better gas mileage than a regular Civic. Honda's second generation Civic Hybrid offers improved city fuel economy, and an incredibly better body design. And, despite some complaints over mileage, most Civic Hybrid owners are very happy with the gas mileage of their hybrid Civics.

The first generation Civic hybrid cars could not function on electric power at low speeds. Honda has resolved that problem AND gave the Civic Hybrid a minor boost in power. First generation Civic hybrids had an output of 85 horsepower with fuel economy estimated at 20 - 48 city/30 - 51 highway. The second generation Civic Hybrid now has an output of 93 HP total with fuel economy estimated at 49 city/51 highway. The bottom line is that the Civic Hybrid significantly reduces fuel consumption with a small gain in fuel economy and power over the previous generation Civic Hybrid.

"The Civic hybrid is Honda’s entry level hybrid car. Unlike the Toyota Prius, the electric engine is incremental to the gas one, adding only 20 horsepower to the 4-cylinder’s 93"
