So you don’t want to invest in a hybrid, but you really hate paying an arm and a leg at the pump? Well, luckily for you, in addition to the phenomenal hybrids Honda crafts, the automaker produces several other fuel-efficient vehicles that aim to save you time and money while you rush around checking off tasks on your to-do list.
With a starting MSRP of $15,990**, it’s hard to believe this hatchback deal could get any better until you take it onto the highway and benefit from its estimated 36* mpg rating. If you are more of a city driver, 29* mpg in town tops the charts as far as non-hybrid vehicles are concerned. Customizing it to meet your distinct tastes is easy with seven exterior colors to choose from including Mystic yellow, Milano red, and Aegean blue.
Although it looks small, this auto boasts up to 52 cubic feet of cargo space. A multi-angle rearview camera with guidelines, daytime running lights, and a tire pressure monitoring system comes standard in each of the three trims: LX, EX, and EX-L. The EX and EX-L feature Honda LaneWatch, which turns the 7-inch touch screen into a camera to check for blind spots. A continuously variable transmission with sport mode is available in the LX and EX and comes standard on the EX-L. Equipping the base model with an automatic transmission improves the highway miles per gallon to 40*.
If you’re in the market for a two-door that gets people’s attention, the Civic Coupe reigns supreme. You can expect to get a stellar 39 miles to the gallon on the highway and 28* in the city in this stylish racer. With five trims to choose from — LX, LX-P, EX-T, EX-L, and Touring — you can benefit from a great lineup of standard and available features that match your lifestyle. Each model is equipped with automatic climate control. Enjoy push button start and a one-touch power moonroof in the LX-P and higher.
For a lighter and more powerful drive, select the 1.5-liter turbocharged engine that delivers 174 horsepower. The EX-L offers luxurious touches like leather-trimmed seating, steering wheel, and shift knob plus an auto-dimming rearview mirror. For top-of-the-line audio, choose the Touring, which features a 450-watt premium audio system complemented by a satellite-linked navigation system and the Honda Sensing intelligent safety package.
For those who have been waiting for the return of the Civic Hatchback, the wait is finally over. The aggressive exterior compiled of c-shaped taillights, bold LED daytime running lights, and dual exhaust outlets will make onlookers drool as you peel out. A futuristic instrument panel and electric parking brake simplify the driving experience. Dual climate control means you and your passengers can customize the optimal cabin temperature while you relish the 39* mpg highway rating. This vehicle hits dealerships across the United States in February 2017.
Saving the planet one mile at a time has never been such a stylish proposition.
