Well, I upgraded to the HCH II from a Jeep Wrangler, so this is like driving a Lexus for me. But, based upon my memory of my previous Coupe, this car blows all others away. Honda really got it right this time. The new Civic feels more like the Accord sans the leather seats. I opted out of the Navi because the dealers in the Los Angeles area are charging $1500+ markups. The $650 TomTom does the job.
Instantaneous response to how my actions affect fuel economy. The zero fuel glides are wonderful. Learn how to use them as often as possible.
Rear window wiper would have been nice. When parking, it is tough to judge how close I am in the front because of the angle of the stubby nose. Will have to adjust.
