TrueDelta Reviews the Real Gas Mileage of the Honda Civic

Honda Civic Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearComment
2016 The new Honda Civic earned EPA ratings among the best in the class with both engines: 31 mpg city, 41 mpg highway with the 2.0-liter engine and 31/42 with the 1.5-liter turbo. With the 2.0-liter I observed suburban averages as high as 43 mpg and a 70-mph highway average around 42. My average for the entire week, including cold starts and idling while taking photos, was 31.8 mpg. With a 2.0-liter engine, the 2017 Hyundai Elantra doesn't come within ten percent of the Honda's scores with a marginally competitive 28/37. Hyundai is adding an Eco variant with a 1.4-liter turbocharged engine. The Eco roughly ties the Civic with 32/40, but with only 128 horsepower it probably won't perform nearly as well. The Mazda3's fuel economy is more competitive: 30/41 with a 2.0-liter engine and 28/39 with a strong 2.5-liter. If you want a manual transmission, the Mazda can seem even better. First off, Honda and Hyundai currently offer a manual transmission only with their base trim levels and base engines, while Mazda offers a manual with both engines and all trim levels. MPG ratings for the Mazda3 with a manual are 29/41 with the 2.0 and 25/37 with the 2.5. With a manual the Honda's EPA ratings are 27/40 and the Hyundai's are 26/36. Next year Honda will offer a manual transmission with additional engines and trim levels. see full Honda Civic review

2013 4dr Sedan 201-horsepower 2.4L I4
6-speed manual FWD
This one is odd. I travel down to Florida a lot, on a 300-400 mile trip I am between 35-40. Mixed driving I have never gone below 32.4. City driving I once saw it go down to 29.1. I am sure if I drive it like I stole it these figures would drop, but then few drive like this. I will say if you if you light up the four lights on the VTEC you will knock a couple of miles a gallon off your mileage instantly and it will take a while to get back. see full Honda Civic review

Delivers good fuel economy, even better than the old model despite having a larger displacement engine. About 27-28 mpg in mostly stop and go driving, and 33-35 mpg in highway. see full Honda Civic review

Very good. Get a true 36 mpg on interstate doing a sustained 75 mph. see full Honda Civic review
2010 4dr Sedan 140-horsepower 1.8L I4
5-speed manual FWD
I consistently get between 7 and 7.5L per 100 km which is about 32.5 MPG(US). I also own a Toyota Tundra, so the savings on fuel almost pay for the civic itself. see full Honda Civic review

Great economy. see full Honda Civic review

The Si still gets rather good fuel economy, even with a much beefier motor than the other models. see full Honda Civic review

Superb fuel economy. The Civic gets 1.5 liter mileage on the highway (40+ with AC in my experience) and excellent mileage in the city (30+ MPG). It does this without the anemic hybrid performance or the inconveniences of a diesel engine. see full Honda Civic review

Getting around 40 MPG combined 60/40 Hwy/City; more if I go easy on the gas pedal. see full Honda Civic review

It ranks just below the Prius for MPG. My son who bought a 2008 Civic Hybrid says he is getting better than rated MPG. I am trading in a 2005 Honda Accord Hybrid because the city MPG is not anywhere near what I was led to believe. see full Honda Civic review

Takes premium fuel. To really get going, you need to rev the engine high... uses gas to do so. see full Honda Civic review

Poorer than the Prius. see full Honda Civic review

EPA was 50 MPG (IMP Gal) i have never done better than 41.3 MPG. see full Honda Civic review
2006 4dr Sedan 140-horsepower 1.8L I4
5-speed automatic FWD
Advertised as 50 MPG/Gal (Imp) best we ever got was 42 MPG, I asked when we got the car new what the "real" gas milage was and salesman swore it would get 50 MPG?!?! see full Honda Civic review
2004 4dr Sedan 93-horsepower 1.3L I4 Hybrid
CVT FWD
With the things it gave up to the Prius (cargo utility, rear space), it should surpass the Prius in mileage but actually came up short (as did the Insight). see full Honda Civic review
2003 4dr Sedan 115-horsepower 1.7L I4

We only get about 30 mpg compared with 42 mpg in our 2008 Prius. see full Honda Civic review
