More power than I expected

2009 Honda Civic Hybrid 4dr Sedan w/Lthr, Nav (1.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
I only have the car for a week, this is my sixth Honda, first Hybrid. The car has ample acceleration and power, very quiet ride. Face it with the unstable oil market, it's time to make the change. I only leased the car for three years, who knows what type of power will be available in the future. I don't think the extra cost will pay for itself in three years, but I leased it to save gas, not money.
Drivers seat adjustments to higher and lower, I tried the Pirus. The Civic has more comfort. I did get around 46 mpg with first fill up, very pleased.
I personally like to see the front fenders, this car you don't, also the back seat does not fold down into the small trunk, you lose cargo space, find a different place for the batteries.
