HF Model Joins Honda Civic Line For 2012

Honda will offer a new HF (High Fuel economy) model of the redesigned 2012 Civic when it goes on sale this spring. The Civic HF will have an EPA highway fuel economy rating of 41 mpg. The higher fuel economy Civic is similar to the models offered by Chevrolet and Ford in the form of the Cruze Eco and Fiesta SFE. The Civic HF will be powered by Honda’s 1.8-liter i-VTEC engine.

The Civic Hybrid will also receive a boost in fuel economy with the new model. Honda is expecting the combined city/highway rating to improve by 4 mpg to 45 mpg. It has a larger 1.5-liter i-VTEC gasoline engine and new lithium-ion battery pack. Both the Civic HF and Civic Hybrid feature aerodynamic modifications and use Honda’s ECO Assist technology to help the driver operate the car more efficiently.

All ninth generation Honda Civic models will benefit from improved fuel economy. The standard Civic Sedan and Coupe pick up 3 mpg on the highway, bringing their EPA number up to 39 mpg highway. The 2012 Civic NG natural gas model, which will available in all 50 states for the first time, will have a 7-percent increase in fuel economy compared to the 2011 model. Finally, the sporty Si performance model has a more powerful engine producing 200 horsepower and 170 lb-ft of torque yet increases by 2 mpg to earn 31 mpg on the highway.
