The Honda Civic natural gas is appointed with a list of features to include 160-Watt AM/FM/CD Audio System with 4 Speakers, Drive-by-Wire, Bluetooth \"Hands Free\" Link, speed-sensitive volume control, Eco Assist, MP3/Windows Media Audio, multi-link rear suspension, rack-and-pinion steering, and a Macpherson Strut front suspension. In terms of safety, Honda didn't skimp out either, and has included more that you can expect such as traction control aided by the vehicle stability assist system, dual-mounted front airbags, electronic brake distribution, anti-lock brakes, lower anchors on the rear seat, tethers for children, tire pressure monitoring system, daytime running lights, and daytime running lights.
Buyers can choose between a number of exciting color variants for the exterior to include Albaster Silver Metallic, Cool Mist Metallic, Polished Metal Metallic, and Taffeta White and the interior can be pampered in Civic Natural gas Gray, Stone, Navi Gray and Navi Stone. The interior is highlighted by a number of convenience amenities such as remote trunk release, front seatback storage, tilt and telescopic steering wheel, front cupholders, cruise control, electric speed proportional power steering, steering wheel embedded with audio and cruise controls, and front and rear door pockets to complete the package.
For a car that has less space, range and power, Honda charges approx $10 thousand more and the only thing that can justify this is the low cost of its fuel and the fact that there is an abundant supply of it. The government does encourage use of natural gas and has a number tax breaks in place to promote it. When this all adds up, consumers are entitled to approximately $4000 in refunds, which is just enough to equip your garage with a Phil private re-fueler.
The Civic Natural Gas stacks up pretty good against its close rival, the Nissan Leaf, but unlike the Leaf, can be refueled in minutes, costs less and goes farther. Buying this car in California gets you premier access to the high occupancy lanes with just the driver, which works great to avoid high volumes of traffic. If you're looking for a vehicle to go the extra mile fast, this isn't a wise choice, but if you want a vehicle that will cause you less heartache, it is definitely one to consider.
