Performance

Efficiency Empowered

Make it a Combo

The Civic Hybrid with Integrated Motor Assist IMA® combines the brisk performance of a 1.5-liter, 8-valve, SOHC i-VTEC® engine that has been refined for 2012 with many friction-reducing and airflow improvements with a high-output electric motor. Together this combo generates 110 hp. The Civic Hybrid also features a continuously variable transmission, which is an advanced transmission that substitutes the gears found in more traditional transmissions and replaces them with a metal push-belt running between a pair of variable-width pulleys.

Less Weight, Drives Great

Weight-saving technologies, improved aerodynamics and engine modifications result in a new Civic with some impressive new EPA ratings. The 2012 Civic Hybrid now achieves an EPA estimated 44 city/44 highway mpg[1]. Plus, increased structural rigidity makes for more responsive handling.

[1] 44 city/44 hwy/44 combined mpg. Based on 2012 EPA mileage estimates. Use for comparison purposes only. Do not compare to models before 2008. Your actual mileage will vary depending on how you drive and maintain your vehicle.

Safety

It's all about choice, but not when it comes to safety: Every Civic features the same full array of safety systems. Standard.

Active Systems: Control

To help keep you on course and away from danger, Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) helps sense oversteer or understeer, and then adjusts brake pressure at each wheel and/or reduces engine power to help restore driver control[2].

Standard anti-lock brakes (ABS), with Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD), help you maintain control during hard braking. Properly inflated tires are crucial for safe operation, so the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)[3] alerts the driver when pressure in any tire becomes significantly low.

Passive Systems: Protection

The Civic has been engineered to help protect you and your passengers when a frontal collision just cannot be avoided. The Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure utilizes a network of connected structural elements to distribute crash energy more evenly throughout the front of the vehicle.

Airbags and More

Standard front, front side and side curtain airbags help reduce the likelihood of injuries in a collision.

Top Safety

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has named the 2012 Civic Sedan a "2011 Top Safety Pick," based on more stringent standards implemented in 2010. The Civic Sedan received top ratings in each category including frontal offset, side impact, and rear impact crash safety tests and the new roof-strength test. The Civic Sedan has been named an IIHS Top Safety Pick since 2008.

Honda's Safety Philosophy

Honda is committed to providing safety for everyone—that means crash protection not only for our own drivers and passengers, but also for other vehicle occupants, and injury mitigation for pedestrians. We are dedicated to identifying and implementing advanced designs and features that help enhance the safety of vehicles on the road. Learn more.

[2] VSA is not a substitute for safe driving. It cannot correct the vehicle's course in every situation or compensate for reckless driving. Control of the vehicle always remains with the driver.

[3] For optimal tire wear and performance, tire pressure should be checked regularly with a gauge. Do not rely solely on the monitor system. Please see your Honda dealer for details.

Environment

The Civic Hybrid has always been one of the cornerstones of our environmental leadership efforts. For 2012, the trend continues.

DNA for MPG

The Civic Hybrid is a direct descendant of the 1975 Civic CVCC, which was the first vehicle to pass the emissions requirement of the Clean Air Act of 1970 without using a catalytic converter. Our hybrid technology has blossomed since we introduced the first gas-electric hybrid, the Insight, to the U.S. market in 1999.

How Far We've Come

Today's Civic Hybrid achieves impressive fuel economy (44 hwy mpg)[4], and offers buzz-worthy technology like Eco Assist and the ECON button[5] so you have every advantage out on the road.

Along with improved fuel efficiency, the 2012 Civic Hybrid qualifies as an Advanced Technology Partial Zero-Emission Vehicle (AT-PZEV)[6].

i-Mid System

All About You

After you decide on a model, you may think you have it all locked up. But wait—there's more. Choices abound—from lighting to auto-locks to wallpaper. The 2012 Civic Hybrid makes it fun and easy with the intelligent Multi-Information Display (i-MID) which sits front and center in the Civic Hybrid's instrument panel.

Photos

Nothing says "me" like the wallpaper on your computer. Now you can take the same creative liberties in your Civic Hybrid. Load an image of your pet, your mom, or even one of your favorite reality show winners. We won't judge.

Info

The new intelligent Multi-Information Display (i-MID) is your go-to for every important tidbit of drive-related information. See current song playing, current mpg—and even turn-by-turn directions if you opt for the available Navigation system[10].

Pep Talk

If you drive a hybrid, the kind of info you want most has to do with flow - as in energy flow. The i-MID delivers with an energy-flow screen within the display, indicating the balance of power between gas and electric. The Eco Assist™[11] system helps you learn to drive more efficiently, rewarding you with your Eco Score at the end of your drive. Just add cheerleaders.

Bluetooth® Capability

The list of advanced i-MID functions is a long one, including Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink®[12] for hands-free phone calls. The system pairs easily with your compatible phone, and is also ready for Bluetooth® Audio, so you can stream your music too.

Crystal Clear

Not only is the i-MID helpful and customizable, it's pretty, thanks to its high-resolution TFT LCD display—the same kind of technology found on LCD monitors and the latest smartphones.

Eco Assist

He who drives with the most efficiency, wins.

Push Yourself

The Civic Hybrid now has a quick and easy way to boost your efficiency. Just push the ECON button[13]. The engine and other power-using systems will then go into super-efficient mode to maximize your mileage.

Coach is Calling

If you're trying to squeeze every mile out of a gallon (and who isn't these days?), keep an eye on the Honda Eco Assist™[13] feature. Those blue and green bars on either side of the speedometer indicate your level of efficiency as you drive.

Hybrids Go the Distance

All Civic models have Eco Assist™, but the Hybrid model makes the most of it by giving you a handy Eco Guide to help you along the way, and by tabulating your Eco Score at the end of each drive.

Give Me an MPG

Take advantage of all the gas-saving technology in a new Civic Hybrid, and you can get an EPA estimated 44 mpg[14] on the highway. That's money in the tank. And a neighborly nod to the environment.

Leaves, a Legacy

The Civic Hybrid benefits from all the innovations since Honda introduced the first gas-electric hybrid to the American market in 1999. It's all led to this latest milestone: a next-generation Civic Hybrid available with an impressive AT-PZEV CARB Emissions Rating[15].
