The 2009 Honda Civic Hybrid: The most Competetive Hybrid on the Market

The year 2008 proved to be the year of the Civic Hybrid. With no competition around to drive the Civic Hybrid, it garnered much success. There was yet any talk of the 2010 Honda Insight and other manufacturers fell short of producing any competitor Hybrids. Since those days the Hybrid has seen technology take a turn for the best. As mentioned, Honda announced its launch of the 2010 Insight with high hopes of making it the new Honda Hybrid. Other manufactures started producing their own line of Hybrids too, such as the Toyota Prius and the Ford Fusion. The Honda Civic Hybrid began to crumble in popularity, or did it?

With the new features added to the 2009 Honda Civic Hybrid, it is without a doubt still one of the top contenders in the Hybrid Community of South Florida. The Civic Hybrid is the highest mileage member of the Civic family and its 4-door body style has the same feel as the Civic Sedan. Yet the Hybrid delivers EPA fuel economy ratings of 40-mpg city, 45-mpg highway, and 42 mpg combined. The retail price of the Hybrid continues to be a strong point of this eco-friendly car. At only a $3100 premium over a similarly equipped Civic EX-L, one can imagine buyers making the step up to the Hybrid-L (at $24,850) to benefit from the significant mileage improvement over the non-hybrid’s 26/34 mpg. (At $2/gallon, the fuel-savings payoff driving 15,000 miles per year is about 9 years; half that if the price of gas doubles.)

The Civic Hybrid continues to be a premium vehicle of its kind. You can tell by its starting price of $23,650 that it is outfitted with top of the line equipment, such as four-wheel disc breaks and the availability of interior leather seats. The Hybrid also proves to be a more spacious car than other Hybrids by offering more room in the back seats. Like other Civics, the 2009 Hybrid gets electronic stability control and also features dual airbags, side and side curtain airbags, and anti-lock brakes. Government crash tests give five-star ratings for frontal impacts, with four-star front and five-star rear for side impacts. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety rates the 2009 Honda Civic Hybrid as “good.”
