Fremont, California (EastBayDaily) — The 2012 Honda Civic is a five speed, gasoline fueled compact car with an estimated EPA fuel economy at 28 miles per gallon in the city and 39 miles per gallon on the highway. It features a sharper look, with a more finely detailed, streamlined outer appearance. With the reconfigured interior, the Civic is still about the same size overall, but with additional space due to new seats, door panels and a new instrument panel.
There are several trim level choices with the availability of the DX, LX, EX, EX-L and Si models, as well as the greener versions: the Civic HF, which possesses the same engine as the basic car but sports new fuel-saving measures; the Civic Hybrid, which has a restructured version of Honda’s mild-hybrid system; and the Civic Natural Gas, a special version that’s powered by compressed natural gas.
Standard features of the entry-level DX include a tilt-telescoping steering column, power windows, Maintenance Minder system and Vehicle Stability Assist with traction control. LX models sport a 6-speaker MP3-playback compatible stereo system as well as air conditioning. The EX has Bluetooth connectivity and a premium audio system with heated leather seats on the EX-L.
Driving the Civic Coupe is almost like moving in a second skin. The Bay Area’s certified Honda is eager and responsive, smooth to travel in and roomy enough to allow plenty of elbow room. It’s decently priced and, if taken care of properly, can last the owner for a long time to come.
“This car has one of the smoothest rides, most comfortable seating and a cockpit that has everything at your fingertips. Honda designers hit a grand slam on this one. This is the best Civic yet. I average 40 to 46 MPG on the highway, and 35 to 40 around town using the Econ button. I would highly recommend this car to family and friends. The fit and finish is impeccable and the quietest ride of any I have driven in its class,” said Ms Love, a Civic owner since June 2011.
