Since 1972, the Honda Civic has been a popular sub-compact car in the United States and around the world. It began as a basic, inexpensive car perfect for commuters or small families, but has grown more upmarket over the years. Still an excellent value, even earning a spot on the 10 Coolest Cars Under $18,000 list put out by Kelley Blue Book, the Honda Civic offers basic luxuries like air conditioning, power locks and windows and a comprehensive technology package. This include GPS navigation, Bluetooth connectivity and satellite radio.
The Honda Civic is not just an attractive small car with plenty of comfort and style. Its 143 horsepower engine provides enough power to navigate busy traffic, while its continuously variable transmission system allows for on-the-go changes that maximize efficiency and power. Many aspects of the Civic are designed for fuel efficiency and a smaller ecological footprint. A large green button on your dashboard can instantly switch the vehicle into Econ Mode to run as efficiently as possible. Honda Civics are also available as hybrid cars. In fact, the Japanese market is dominated by hybrids now.
Comfort and efficiency can be found in the new Honda Civics, but safety is also a primary concern. Each car comes with anti-lock braking system, “Advanced Compatibility Engineering” to protect driver and passengers in head-on collisions, front and side airbags, child car seat tethering and a stability and traction system that helps you keep on your intended path.
