I was originally looking at the Civic
EX for the exterior design, fuel
economy, safety, and sporty options
(sunroof, spoiler, and wheels), but
was convinced by my wife to explore
the hybrid for the fuel economy. Once
I drove the hybrid after driving the
LX and EX I was surprisingly pleased
by its handling and acceleration
capabilities. It didn't have the
options I was looking at, but I hope
the fuel economy solidifies my
decision for purchasing the hybrid. I
have tinted the windows and definitely
plan on changing out the aluminium
wheels to make it look more sportier.
Exterior color and style, instrument
panel, auto-stop feature, and
obviously fuel economy even though I
haven't seen the 47 city and 48 hwy.
mpg it advertizes, but I am still on
my first tank of gas and have only
approx. 250 miles on it.
Additional passenger legroom in the
backseat, armrest for the front
passenger, and sport package options-
sunroof, rear spoiler and alloy wheels
like the EX version. Relocate the top
antenna to an integrated antenna in
the rear window like the EX.
