Alternative Fuel 2014 Honda Civics are Coming

February 10th, 2014 by

2014 Honda Civic 800 2We are big fans of the 2014 Honda Civic already here at Mid-Michigan Honda Dealers, but we’re particularly excited for what’s coming next: new powertrain options.

That’s right, if you’re looking to cut gasoline out of your budget—either a little or entirely—you’ve got a new choice coming up.

Honda just recently announced that the 2014 Civic will have both natural gas and hybrid powertrain options coming soon. You’ve probably heard of the Civic Hybrid already, but we know many are surprised to find out about the Civic Natural Gas (or Civic NG). Let’s take a closer look at these two:

Going Hybrid

It was only a matter of time before one of the most efficient small cars in the world had a hybrid powertrain, and that time is now. The 2014 Civic Hybrid embodies everything drivers adore about the regular Civic—its affordability, its comfort features, its modern tech, its style—and adds a hybrid engine under the hood.

The EPA-estimated fuel economy for the Civic Hybrid Sedan with continuously variable transmission is 47 mpg on the highway, 44 mpg in the city, and 45 mpg combined.*

The Civic already made fans, but with those fuel economy numbers, we anticipate many more.

Switching to Natural Gas

Hybrids are great for cutting fuel expenses, but if you want a cleaner burning fuel that lets you cut gasoline out entirely, well, that’s where the Civic NG comes in. It’s done that job for many drivers since it debuted in 2012, and Honda gave it a revamp for 2014.

The Civic NG with five-speed automatic transmission gets an EPA-estimated 38 mpge highway fuel economy,* making it pretty easy to justify the switch from gasoline to natural gas.
