The Honda Natural Gas goes on sale in the year so there wasn’t one to drive at the press launch. For the model year, however, vehicle will for the first be available with luxuries in-dash navigation (with to your nearest filling Bluetooth and USB/iPod integration. In words, it won’t be just for buyers anymore.

Now, if you are to scream about the fact the regular Civic “only” EPA highway estimates of 39 miles per when the Elantra returns 40, know that there is a model just for you. The HF, it will probably only for maybe 2-3 percent of sales, buyers EPA estimates of 41 miles per highway thanks to different and various aerodynamic upgrades.

But to be honest it has been my repeated experience that EPA fuel estimates are very rarely and can vary widely based on you live and how you drive your own That is why as I am testing the 2011 and Corolla (I tested the Cruze and earlier this year) for periods to get an idea of how they efficiency wise in the real

Now I realize this is crazy but gas are becoming so important that people may be forced to buy one of these not by choice but out of necessity. So this I hope to cram in as many new weeklong road tests so I can get a economy data base is perhaps more realistic. Or at the least repeatable in the real

Yes, from the Si to the EX to HF to Hybrid and with a natural gas powered thrown in, I may go into Civic but I think this is an ever important test figure. just have to see how receptive is to my request for half of their fleet.

Now, if saving on gas or saving the environment is important to here is all of the most pertinent on the 2012 Honda Civic HF, Hybrid and Civic Natural

2012 Honda Civic HF

The HF of the 2012 Honda Civic standard with a 5-speed in a trim level that that of the LX but with special enhanced alloy wheels, low resistance tires and aerodynamic as mentioned before. The 1.8 liter engine puts out the same 140 lb. feet of torque as in regular and sort of proves by its very that EPA fuel economy can be manipulated.

During a short loop at the press launch the HF a slalom course in a manner like any of the other EX or LX variants with a little bit more howl during high cornering maneuvers. But if you are buying a HF I assume high speed behavior is not high on your of priorities. Given this high value to feature and the possibility of greater fuel in a time of escalating gas prices, may find there is more for the HF than they are expecting.

2012 Honda Civic Gas

As the Civic is not a bespoke platform for natural gas powered sedan, its gas will still be somewhat thanks to the intrusion of the enlarged tank. But as far as low cost commuting the 2012 Honda Civic Gas makes perfect sense. It is by a 1.8 liter 100 horsepower/106 lb. feet of 4-cylinder mated to a 5-speed and returns EPA estimates equivalent to 27 highway.

So what are the benefits of particular Civic model in to its petrol powered brethren? natural gas is often times than gasoline (especially now but it where you live) and many allow vehicles like to travel in HOV Carpool lanes only one passenger. That one in and of itself might make car the perfect long distance accessory. (Note: Pricing not at time of test publication.)

2012 Honda Civic

Yes, for the first time Honda is using lithium-ion in one of its hybrid models instead of the nickel-hydride batteries used in the generation Civic and current Prius. This new battery is more powerful, lighter and compact than the unit it With the gasoline and electric working together power is 110 horsepower/127 lb. feet of torque a greater emphasis put on mid-range to improve performance at city

In the place of last year’s 1.3 gasoline engine is a new 1.5 cylinder with an aluminum cylinder block and dual stage valve control for improved at highway speeds. There is a stop/start system that off the engine at stop lights and EPA economy estimates are 44 city/44

While I am guessing the Civic averages somewhere closer to 44 per gallon, during a “hypermiling” at the press launch one journalist a healthy 59 miles per gallon. I, was too busy being distracted by the Si around the autocross to remember to in the driving slow challenge. I actually prefer to drive the in real world conditions the fuel efficiency is more of what average folks see.

Honda Civic Hybrid (3rd gen)

I believe that when are in a car they should have an destination and drive accordingly. is how I drive every car I test so I get a chance to test the new 2012 Hybrid for a week it will be to see how it performs in the fuel economy with me in control of the accelerator

As an example, my road test in a Prius returned 43.2 per gallon which is quite a bit of their estimates. Also, a lot of was freeway driving over a freeway period because the broke down 4 days the test. Let’s hope the 2012 Honda Civic doesn’t suffer from any ill-timed maladies.

But even in my with the 2010 Honda Hybrid, that was one of the few times my EPA estimates were somewhere to accurate barring my experience VW’s TDI diesel which has exceeded EPA fuelled expectations. So diesel and Honda’s own hydrogen of personal transport may be fading out in the decades, it appears that the is here to stay.
