I am very impressed with this car! The 06 HCH is far superior to the 05 model. In fact it is far superior to the 05 Prius. The 06 Civic Hybrid's build quality is very high with a near luxury car feel. The road handling is stable with excellent steering and control. The 06 HCH is quite stable in high winds and truck turbulence. Far more stable than the Prius, as road tested. Road noise is very quiet and the interior feels roomy for a compact car. Quieter than my previous Audi A4 and 05.HCH. The Styling is forward looking and truly ergonomic. The seats are very comfortable (I'm 5'9"). The GPS nav system is great and performs accurately. MPG actually as advertised! Wow.
45/53 MPG without trying. Beautiful exterior styling. Truly ergonomic interior design. Very high build quality.
Would be even better if back seats could fold down.
