Powering the Honda Civic
The Civic Hybrid now has a 1.5-liter four-cylinder gas engine, up from 1.3 liters in the previous generation, and its electric motor is more powerful, teamed with a lithium-ion battery pack. The hybrid employs a continuously variable automatic transmission. Horsepower increases by 3, and torque is boosted by more than 30 pounds-feet for more robust off-the-line performance. As before, the Si comes with a six-speed manual.
The Civic's Design
The Civic sedan gets a redesigned, chrome-accented grille and lower front bumper and a taller, sculpted hood. There's more chrome in back, with a strip of it running the width of the trunk lid. The taillights now extend onto the trunk lid. The bumper is revised and now has a diffuser panel. Honda took steps to quiet the cabin, with a thicker windshield and front side windows, and soundproofing material in the dashboard, floor, doors and rear deck.
