2005 Honda Civic Hybrid 4dr Sedan (1.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)

Review

The Civic Hybrid is quite a remarkable car. I switched from a Mercedes to this one because I wanted a low operating cost vehicle. I was driving an 87 Mercedes 190E (ancestor of C230). The interior room of the Civic is pretty much the same as was in my 190. Seats are firm and comfortable. The car is very quiet, and also a lot of fun to drive. Its got a good amount of low end kick from the electric motor, and since the gas engine is very small its also very smooth & quiet. Gas mileage is in the upper 40s so far. Audio is not that great.

Favorite Features

Very good low end torque. Supportive and comfortable seats. Driving position and placement of steering wheel, gears, audio and guagues are all really first class. No wonder they say Honda's have Honda correct ergonomics.

Suggested Improvements

Audio is not good. Cassette is not offered (available but its black and doesn't match silver trim). Civic Hybrid does not have a fold down rear seat because they put the battery pack behind the rear seat in the trunk. However, they could at least offer a pass-through arm rest of something for skis.
