Through nine generations, the Honda Civic has won many fans. It should come as no surprise that Honda offers more varieties of the Civic than it does of any other product. Available as both a coupe and sedan, the Civic offers no fewer than three different powertrains including a hybrid and a model that runs on compressed natural gas. The Civic EX offers the best equipment for the money. It includes alloy wheels, four-wheel disc brakes, and a sunroof. The Civic is also offered with an optional navigation system and leather seating (EX-L). Most performance enthusiasts should be familiar with the Civic Si models. The Si pairs a six-speed manual with a larger 2.4l engine rated at 201-bhp. The Si offers an uncommon level of performance for around $23,000. Although most models are rated at a respectable 30 / 39 (city/highway), the Civic HF is rated at 31 /41. For better mileage, the latest Civic Hybrid uses a lighter lithium ion battery and allows electric only driving to boost its fuel economy to an impressive 44 city / 44 hwy. Although the Civic is priced a little higher than some of its newer competitors, the Civic enjoys Honda's long history of reliability and high resale values.

What Changed:

The five-speed automatic transmission has been replaced with a CVT. Fuel economy improves to 30/39 on most models.
