Honda Civic Hybrid is powered by 1.3L i-VTEC (Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control) engine combined with a compact and efficient electric motor - IMA (Integrated Motor Assist) system. The hybrid system provides three stages of valve timing (low-speed, high-speed, and valve-deactivated mode). As soon as you apply the brakes, the "idle stop" feature occurs automatically, making the engine stop temporarily. When the brake pedal is released, the engine restarts on its own. This way, a good amount of fuel is saved and emissions are minimized.

As far as comfort is concerned, people will forget the outside world, because it is so relaxing to take a ride in Civic Hybrid.

Ride And Handling
Honda Civic Hybrid comes equipped with Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT), which blends the effortlessness of an automatic with the efficiency of a manual transmission. CVT is combined with the Drive-by-wire Throttle System, in order to provide the most efficient drive ratio possible, depending on the torque load. The electric motor of the car assists the gasoline engine during acceleration and stores energy during braking and deceleration.
