The Honda Civic was the Little Compact Auto Darling of the 70s and 80s up until competitors began to increase in the form of Toyota's, Mazda's and also a plethora of Hyundai's and Fords !! The Civic first emerged in 1973. It was cost-effective, rated high for safety and security and also attracted a lot of frugally minded customers. Competition isn't always bad; it kept Honda refining and resculpting the Civic over all these years.
There are 4 different kinds of transmission package deals, too: CVT, 6 rate handbook, 5 speed automatic, or the 5 rate manual. The 1.5 L 4 cylinder hybrid gets a combined 45 mpg, whereas their distinct natural gas engine obtains a consolidated 31 mpg. The biggest benefits to the gas engine is its fuel is a lot cheaper and the crash checks done on the natural gas automobiles confirm that they are a great deal much more immune to collision - explosions/fires.
