About Honda Civic LX
The 2006 Honda Civic is available as a sedan or a coupe (the hatchback version has been dropped this year), and it is available in a variety of trim levels. There isn’t necessarily more of everything in this Civic redesign, which is a bit of a departure for a Civic redesign. This year, the coupe’s trunk capacity and rear-seat legroom have actually shrunk slightly. The reason for this is a greater emphasis on style. The Civic’s new design features a relaxed windshield, short front and rear overhangs, and a narrow tire-to-fender gap. The coupe has a shorter wheelbase this year.
Horsepower is increasing on all models. The SOHC 1.8-liter inline four-cylinder engine with Honda’s i-VTEC system powers all DX, LX, and EX models. It has 140 horsepower and 128 pound-feet of torque. The GX is powered by a natural gas engine that produces 113 horsepower and 109 pound-feet of torque. The previous Civic Si hatchback was a letdown in terms of performance. Fortunately, the 2006 coupe version improves on the previous model by being the fastest production Civic ever. It has a 197-hp engine, a sport-tuned suspension, and a six-speed manual transmission with a limited-slip differential. The Civic Hybrid sedan is for those who are more concerned with fuel economy than 0-60 mph times. It, too, employs Honda’s IMA (Integrated Motor Assist) system, which consists of a 1.3-liter, four-cylinder gas engine with a single overhead cam connected to an electric motor and a continuously variable transmission. The Civic Hybrid has a combined horsepower of up to 110 and a mileage of 50 mpg city/50 mpg highway. The improved fuel economy is largely due to the fact that the gas engine can now completely shut down during deceleration and steady cruising, allowing the electric motor to propel the car alone, as in Toyota’s Prius. The Civic GX is another fuel-efficient option. It runs on compressed natural gas and can even be refilled at home using a “Phill” natural gas home kit.
Whatever model you choose, the 2006 Honda Civic is difficult to fault. Every time you get into it, you’ll know you’re driving a safe, dependable vehicle that pollutes the environment minimally and will provide years of faithful service.
