Great review. I just purchased the Civic Hybrid and its so much fun to drive. Everyone forgets the "S" mode for sport driving. Sure it lowers the mpg a bit but the low end torque is so strong its like driving a Si from 0 to 45 mph. Add in great handling and cornering and it beats the Prius hands down. It makes it so much fun to have these options.Report it
Correction for your comment on Prius liftback hybrid battery: It is Nickel metal hydride (NimH) which weighs close to 120 lbs and has 10 yr / 150k mi warranty in CA & complaint states. Yeah, I'll give you that the Civic is a lot classier inside, probably handles better than Prius, but Honda better do something to win back customers to get out of the 500 Civic Hybrids per month in US sales versus Prius liftback 15,000 per month. Big difference. Not sure I'd like the gas engine firing up on Civic just by letting off the brake pedal. Mild hybrid will be defunct and replaced by Honda Sport Hybrid DCD, iMMD, and SH-AWD in a few years.Report it
