Take your daily routine and add rousing performance. Add sleek styling. Add a generous dose of high-tech. The 2011 Civic Hybrid is the perfect catalyst to shake things up. No matter what flavor you choose, from Sedan to Civic to Si, one thing should be perfectly clear: Civic = Fun.
Nothing gets the blood pumping quite like a big serving of i-VTEC® every morning. Honda’s signature technology gives you plenty of torque off the line as well as horsepower to spare down the road. The Drive-by-Wire™ throttle system yields improved response and smoother shifts. Power flows through a precise 5-speed manual transmission, or you can enjoy the ease of use of the available 5-speed automatic.
The Civic’s sporty feel is the product of its sophisticated suspension system and power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering. Both have been engineered for quick, precise response and a refined ride quality. Confident stopping is provided on DX and LX models by front disc and rear drum brakes. EX models and above sport disc brakes at all four corners.
The Civic helps you connect with more than just the road. On select models, the available Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System™1 with voice recognition provides not only maps and directions, but also listings of over 7 million points of interest like ATMs, restaurants and cultural venues. It also features Bluetooth®2 HandsFreeLink® so you can dial ahead through your compatible cell phone.
The Civic cabin is designed to be a full sensory experience. Select EX models include a leather-trimmed interior and heated front seats. They also feature a leather-wrapped steering wheel, which is also found on the LX-S. Rear-seat passengers won’t feel neglected with their comfortably wide seats and flat rear floor. The fold-down rear seatback also expands your cargo-carrying capability (on EX and Si models it’s 60/40 split).
With the three-spoke steering wheel’s tilt and telescoping adjustability, you can easily find a comfortable position. LX and above feature steering wheel-mounted cruise-control switches. EX, Hybrid and Si models also put audio-system controls close at hand.
On DX-VP and above, the AM/FM/CD audio system has MP3/Windows Media® Audio3 (WMA) playback capability and an MP3/auxiliary input jack. Select models (EX, EX-L and Si) add more speakers, including a subwoofer. Navigation-equipped models add XM® Radio.
Select models include Honda’s USB Audio Interface,5 giving you greater access to your digital music files. Just plug in your compatible music player and the system displays song information and lets you use the vehicle’s audio controls.
Add the letters Si and you add exponentially to the level of fun. With a responsive 197-hp engine, low stance, 17-inch alloy wheels and close-ratio 6-speed manual transmission, the Si Hybrid and Si Sedan give you ultimate Civic performance.
With its impressive list of standard safety features, the Civic is a prime example of Honda’s commitment to providing a high level of occupant protection. agsStandard on all Civics, front, side and side curtain airbags help lessen the likelihood of head, neck and torso injuries in a sufficient side collision. The front passenger’s airbag features Honda’s Occupant Position Detection System (OPDS) to help prevent the side airbag from deploying if a child or small-statured adult is in the airbag’s path of deployment.
