The 2011 Honda Civic lineup spans a wide range with technologically advanced Civic Sedan and Coupe models, a Civic Hybrid, a high-performance Civic Si — and a Civic GX model that runs exclusively on natural gas.
Engine and transmission choices range from a 140-horsepower, 1.8-liter engine (Civic DX, DX-VP, LX, EX and EX-L), with either a 5-speed manual or an available 5-speed automatic transmission, to a 197-horsepower, 2.0-liter engine with a 6-speed manual transmission.
Civic Hybrid is powered by a 1.3-liter i-VTEC engine with Integrated Motor Assist gasoline-electric hybrid technology to enhance both fuel economy and performance, and is equipped with a continuously variable transmission.
