December 15th, 2011 by

Middletown Honda proudly presents the 2012 Honda Civic for New Hampton residents looking for a compact sedan that is reliable, powerful, and fuel efficient. Known for its long-term best-selling popularity, the Honda Civic continues to

excel as a quality car for drivers worldwide. This year’s model comes in three different trims: the DX, LX, and EX. Equipped with a SOHC iVTEC four-cylinder engine, the Civic can produce a powerful 140 hp at 6,500 rpm. You can get all three models with a five-speed automatic

transmission, while the DX and LX versions also offer a five-speed manual option for more control.

The 2012 Civic Boasts Honda’s Drive-By-Wire Technology

The 2012 Honda Civic gets up to 28 mpg in the city and 39 mpg on the highway. Its fuel efficiency and power is a direct result of its drive-by-wire throttle system. Electronic sensors on the accelerator pedal send signals to the powertrain control module, which measures positions of the accelerator, throttle butterfly, and engine, then optimizes fuel to the engine for maximum performance. The electronic sensors prove to be more efficient than the cable system typically attached to the powertrain control module in many other vehicles.

Interior features include power doors, power windows, power locks, cruise control, rear window defroster with timer, and a 12-volt power outlet. The LX and EX editions offer a fantastic 160-watt AM/FM/CD stereo with MP3/WMA playback capability, radio data system, and speed-sensitive volume control. The LX offers a four-speaker system while the EX offers a six-speaker system. The EX edition also offers XM radio with navigation as well as Bluetooth handsfree technology for mobile calling. The 2012 Honda Civic is currently selling for an incredible starting price of just $15,805.
