Buyers who lean toward green will embrace the all-new Civic HF and the Civic Hybrid, each delivering fuel economy estimates of more than 40 mpg on the highway. Remember the miserly CRX HP? The economical Civic HF model will be the most fuel-efficient, gasoline-only-powered Civic in the lineup, posting 41 mpg highway fuel efficiency numbers. The ’12 Civic Hybrid, which will be outfitted for the first time with a lithium-ion battery and a larger 1.5-liter iVTEC engine, is expected to achieve an EPA-estimated city/highway combined fuel economy of 45 mpg, an improvement of 4 mpg compared to the current Civic Hybrid.
