2008 Honda Civic Hybrid 4dr Sedan (1.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


We bought the hybrid civic new in 12/07. After 6500 miles I am more impressed than the day I bought it. My best MPG is to date is 58.5! That's 600.7 miles when I filled up I could only fit 10.26 gallons in the tank. I have twice averaged 56 MPG and easily can do 50-53 MPG. It is all in how you drive these cars, I spend a lot of time keeping momentum and if you are at speeds less than 45 mph you can very lightly press the throttle pedal and run only on the electric motor. I love this car! Great fuel mileage and Honda build quality.

Best Features

Hybrid system

Worst Features

Softer arm rests in the doors and the center console. On long trips my elbows will start to hurt.
