The Honda Civic originally made its name in the 1970s, arriving at the perfect time to attract tens of thousands of customers scared out of larger, thirstier vehicles by the oil crisis.

Four decades down the line and the Civic still has a reputation as a gas sipper, though the modern car is unrecognisable from its first-generation counterpart.

Now, you get a choice of ways to be green, by either selecting a regular, gasoline engine, or picking a hybrid or natural gas version. We've collated a selection of articles on the Civic and its various models, to bring you our ultimate guide.

On this page, you can find details of Honda's greenest Civics, the Civic Hybrid and the Civic Natural Gas. Click through to page 2 for more general details on the Civic range. It's just a pity the U.S. doesn't get Europe's ultra-frugal diesel Civic...

 

Honda Civic Hybrid
44 mpg city, 44 mpg highway, 44 mpg combined

The Civic Hybrid is currently the greenest of the Honda Civic range, using a 1.5-liter, four-cylinder gasoline engine, paired to a slim electric motor as part of Honda's Integrated Motor Assist system. All that drives through a continuously-variable transmission.

The car is now in its third generation and though the current Civic is nothing to write home about in most areas, it's still one of the most fuel-efficient cars on sale today.
