Honda Civic Hybrid On the Road Weekly Publication

I liked just about everything about this Honda Civic Hybrid. I liked the two-tier instrument panel with the speedometer, fuel gauge and warning lights mounted high at the top. I didn't need to look down and away from the road to check my speed and fuel supply. The tachometer is much lower, but who really needs one with an automatic transmission?

I also liked the height of the audio, navigation and heater/air conditioner controls. Other cars place these much too low for easy use.

Most of all, however, I liked the way this car drove. It was peppy, fun, compact enough to be easy to maneuver in tight spots and very economical. I really liked it when the trip computer reported that I had broken through the 50 mile-per-gallon threshold, ultimately ending up at 50.8 mpg.
