This is what dreams are made of

January 14, 2008
Mile after mile, you get to enjoy the thoroughly modern style, comfort and convenience of a Honda Civic. The Civic Hybrid is living proof that environmentalism and style can go hand in hand.

The Honda hybrid technology Integrated Motor Assist IMA system consists of a super-efficient 1.3-liter, 8-valve, i-VTEC 4-cylinder gasoline engine paired with a lightweight, high-output electric motor, which adds extra power when needed.

The Civic Hybrid is equipped with an uncannily smooth continuously variable transmission, which blends the ease of an automatic with the efficiency of a manual. An idle-stop feature automatically shuts off the Hybrid's gasoline engine when you stop, so you save gas and help keep the air cleaner.

The stylish Civic Hybrid from the Honda stable is definitely green.
