Honda debuted their entire 2012 Civic line this week at the New York International Auto Show. The Civic line, known for fuel efficiency, includes a gas powered Civic sedan and coupe, a high performance Civic Si Coupe, a gas/electric Civic Hybrid, a Civic powered by natural gas, and the all new Civic HF. The HF was seen for the first time publicly here in New York.
The Honda Civic has been a mainstay for the brand for years because of its combination of style, function, and value. Starting at just $15,605, these all new Civics will not disappoint. So what is new about the 2012 Civic? A full technology makeover accounts for most of the changes, but subtle style changes are apparent as well. With gas prices climbing above $4.00 per gallon the fact the car has improved fuel economy by as much as 8% is change that has more impact now ever before. The Hybrid model boasts 44 mpg city, higway, and combined. This makes Civic the most fuel efficient sedan in the U.S. market.
The technology changes in the 2012 Civic range from entertainment, to handling, to safety. A 5 inch LCD “inteligent” multi-information display (iMID) provides access to multiple customizable features. Eco Assist technology helps drivers become more fuel efficient by providing feedback. Safety technology used in the Civic includes crumple zones, air bags, air cushions, and a 4 channel anti-lock braking system.
Overall the Civic stays true to its tradition while evolving into a more stylish style coupled with the latest in technological advances.
