         Hybrid owners are known for their smart thinking; now the all-new 2006 Civic Hybrid comes with even smarter styling to match. All that sizzle still earns an Advanced Technology Partial Zero-Emission Vehicle (AT-PZEV) rating, so you can save on gas while enjoying amenities like the new multi-tiered instrument panel, a sophisticated audio system, and available navigation system. Front, side and side curtain airbags help the future look even brighter. With all that going on, it's time to start thinking about the Civic Hybrid in a whole new way.

   The Civic Hybrid debuted in 2003. The new 2006 Honda civic hybrid averages 50 miles per gallon for a combination of city and highway driving. Honda is targeting 28,000 sales for the 2006 model year which is about 10 percent of total Civic sales in 2006.

    The 2006 Civic Hybrid has earned top safety rankings from NHTSA and IIHS as it uses multiple "load paths" to limit penetration of the car's structure by absorbing more of the crash energy so whatever energy gets through is mitigated by the car's eight standard air bags for more safety. The Civic Hybrid deactivate ALL of its cylinders when they are not needed, during this time the electric motor alone powers the vehicle and saves the gas. Honda Civic Hybrid has optional navigation system with voice control, Telescopic steering wheel, Input jack for MP3 player and  Unique hybrid rims.
