2006 Honda Civic Hybrid 4dr Sedan (1.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Comfort and performance comparable to other automatics in this class. Average gas mileage 48 mpg after 3300 miles. Cold starts and high speed driving bring mileage down towards 40 mpg. Medium speeds and warm weather can bring mpg average over 50 if you use a gentle touch on accelerator. High speed braking a little squirrely due mainly I think to high pressure tires which create a touchier ride than regular honda civic. Rides very nicely at high speed if you want to sacrifice a little fuel economy to get there. Overall happy with the car.

Best Features

mpg computer very accurate. cool blue lighting at night. good sound system for cd player/radio. Plenty of room. golf clubs fit in trunk no problem. Very quiet even with engine running. auto shutdown feature when stopped.

Worst Features

High pressure tires make me nervous about emergency braking in bad weather.
