Visit Honda for more information on the Honda Civic Hybrid.

Honda has already made a car that features a hydrogen fuel cell. The waste produced from this innovative model? Just water.

Though that car won't hit the mass market anytime soon, there's still the Civic HX and Hybrid, two vehicles that get excellent fuel economy. They run clean and smooth-not exceptionally fast-and save you money in the process.

It took a leader to step up in the automotive world and pave the way with earth-friendly vehicles. By all accounts, Honda has shown itself to be quite leader.

Available Models
The Honda Civic HX and the 2004 Honda Civic Hybrid each come in one trim level.

Interior Features
HX models are two-door coupes, while Hybrids are four-door sedans. They both sit five.
These models are highly responsible when it comes to the environment, but they don't make passengers suffer in doing so. For example, the innovative Hybrid has such standard features as air conditioning, power windows, mirrors and door locks, cruise control and an AM/FM/CD audio system.

The Civic HX has a roughly comparable standard features list, with a few deletions. Some of the options for 2004 include all-season floormats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a trunk apron and a cargo net.

Exterior Features
All 2004 Honda Civic models feature new front and rear bumpers, new headlights and a body-colored grille.

It's not about speed-it's about economy. That's what people who are concerned about their children's future have come to learn. And that's what Honda has always been about.

The 2004 Honda Civic HX uses a 1.7-liter inline 4-cylinder engine. It generates 117 horsepower and 110 lb-ft of torque.
The Hybrid is so named because it uses gasoline-electric hybrid technology. The sedan's electric motor assists a special 1.3-liter gasoline engine, recharging the batteries when coasting or decelerating. It produces 93 horsepower and 116 lb-ft of torque.

Both the HX and the Hybrid offer a continuously variable transmission (CVT). Unlike traditional automatic systems, it provides a near-infinite number of ratios. This gives Hybrid models with CVT a fuel rating of 48/47 mpg. Civic HX models with 5-speed manual get an estimated 32/38 mpg. Hybrids with manual transmission have a rating of 46/51 mpg.

Safety and Security
The 2004 Honda Civic HX has safety features like dual front airbags and an emergency inside trunk release. Advanced safety technology like antilock brakes, front side airbags and an immobilizer theft-deterrent system are standard on the Civic Hybrid.

New for the 2004 Honda Civic Hybrid

The Civic Hybrid sports an aggressive new appearance. Contributing to the sleeker, more aggressive look are new front and rear fascias, hood, front grille and headlights
adjustable rear outboard headrests, a console with armrest and storage, manual driver's seat adjustment, improved audio system speakers and a new seat fabric pattern. Additionally, floor mats are now included as standard on all models.
Further improving efficiency are an "idle stop" system that shuts off the engine when the vehicle is stopped, and a cylinder idling system that temporarily shuts off three of the engine's four cylinders when the vehicle is slowing or coasting. This leads to reduced engine pumping losses and improved regenerative braking efficiency.
