I purchased INDY because I wanted a car that was an environmentally conscious statement. This car is fantastic: sporty, high tech, great MPG, stylish, and fun to drive. I got the CVT model because my wife drives it and wasn't thrilled about a stick. I've upgraded everything but the wheels. Changed the Radio to allow XM and IPOD. Nicely designed car, very conforable. Wish the seats had a little bit better lumbar support. Only option not available which I wish was possible was a sunroof. Apparently some wiring goes through the roof or so I was told so that a sunroof wasn't possible. They have it on the new Accord. I regularly get 38- 43 mpg though I don't drive for max mpg.
MPG, confortable, Looks like a regular sporty Civic, don't have to worry about the cost of driving the car. All the accessories you could want with the exception of XM.
Better lumbar seat support, sunroof option, XM as standard or upgrade, iPod available as standard or upgrade.
