Make an EX EXtra Special
By Kenneth Lichtig on
2005 Honda Civic HX 2dr Coupe (1.7L 4cyl 5M)
My wife and I will be purchasing a 2005 Civic Hybrid 3Q05. This is the most refined Civic in the history of the Civics. It is not a perfect car by no means. The SI 160 hp should be offered as an option because 127 hp is too anemic climbing the passes in Los Angeles.Acura sells a version in Canada called the EL. The EL has accord style taillights. You can get leather interior,fog lamps,heated seats and wood trimed as standard equipment on the Touring Model.The EX buyer should also have these choices of factory leather, fog lamps or wood trimed dash.We have a 02 Civic EX which will be my wife's car when we purchase the hybrid model later this year.
Great gas mileage- climate control on the hybrid- radio antennae on the roof on the hybrid- best styled small car-high resale value-
offer an option of leather seats as a factory option or designate a model that leather is standard like the Acura EL in Canada.
