2012 Honda Civic Natural Gas

Honda Civic Natural Gas

With gas prices continuing up the mountain like the yodeling climber on The Price is Right, it’s only a matter of time before drivers are pushed to the edge and have to choose either a new route or to jump to their doom like the poor climber. Honda has the new route with the redesigned Civic, now powered by natural gas. Unleashing you from the bonds of gasoline reliance, the Civic Natural Gas runs only on clean-burning gas, making it one of the lowest emissions vehicles on the road.

Hybrid vs. Natural Gas

If you’re looking to save money at the pump, like I have been lately, the option to completely cut the ties from gasoline sounds pretty appealing. While you could go with a hybrid, the natural gas-driven Civic gives drivers the power they expect from a gas-powered Civic with savings over filling the tank with gasoline.

The EPA-estimated* fuel economy equivalent of the Civic Natural Gas is 38 mpg on the highway, but when you factor in the generally reduced cost of natural gas versus gasoline, the savings quickly add up.

New Efficiency, Same Quality Features

Best of all, the Civic Natural Gas has access to many of the other great features of the basic Civic, from Honda’s intelligent, multi-information display (i-MID), to Bluetooth handsfree technology, to a USB audio interface and more.

The Civic Remains a Guaranteed Safe Drive

As expected, the Civic is engineered by Honda, ensuring that it is still one of the safest vehicles on the road. Honda included distinct active and passive safety enhancing systems that are designed to protect driver and passengers alike in the event of an accident. The 2012 model even earned a “2011 Top Safety Pick” from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

Civic Natural Gas Puts Its Greenprint On The Future

With the fear of global warming looming daily and trips to the gas station chiseling away at the average driver’s nest egg, it’s only a matter of time before we start looking for new options.

The Civic Natural Gas is one option that’s not quite as popular as hybrid vehicles, which is tough to determine why. One of the greatest benefits of this special Civic is the fact that it allows you to completely eliminate gasoline dependence from your driving experience.

Of Honda’s latest models, I can’t think of one I’d rather take home than the Civic Natural Gas; it lets me reduce pollution and have fun while I’m doing it!
