2005 Honda Civic Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2006 4dr Sedan 140-horsepower 1.8L I4
5-speed automatic FWD
Great mileage, though not as great as I had expected. But then again, this is no Hybrid. see full Honda Civic review
2006 4dr Sedan 140-horsepower 1.8L I4
5-speed manual FWD
It is a reasonably sized car with a very good fuel efficiency and good response of the powertrain. see full Honda Civic review
2005 4dr Sedan 115-horsepower 1.7L I4
5-speed manual FWD
Although not nearly as good as my 93, I still average 40mpg+ hwy, and perhaps 35mpg local. This was among the best available in the 2005 MY, and not bad for a mid size sedan. see full Honda Civic review

Gas mileage at between 34 and 38 mpg is really good but since the car is also a lot of fun to drive the fuel economy is terrific! see full Honda Civic review

2004 2dr Coupe 127-horsepower 1.7L I4

Hybrid gives *great* economy - 45 mpg is normal. Except for the bad transmission, this little car runs like the proverbial Swiss watch. see full Honda Civic review

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

EPA was 50 MPG (IMP Gal) i have never done better than 41.3 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
