Here at Planet Honda, we're big fans of the Honda Civic. We're also big fans of Hybrid technology, so you can imagine how excited we were when Honda released the 2013 Honda Civic Hybrid. This vehicle has a lot to offer, and we're proud to be able to offer it ourselves to our local New Jersey Honda dealership customers.
The unique powertrain on the 2013 Honda Civic Hybrid incorporates the Integrated Motor Assistant IMA® system, which brings together an electric motor with a 1.5-liter i-VTEC® gasoline engine whose combined efforts can produce 110 horsepower. With a continuously variable transmission, this model achieves smooth and efficient shifting for an enjoyable driving experience. Eco Assist™ makes the deal even sweeter by providing fuel efficiency information right the dashboard; the ECON button makes saving gas as easy as pushing a button, which activates ECON mode to increase efficiency.
All that tech may be impressive, but once you lower the hood on the 2013 Honda Civic Hybrid, there's still plenty more to gawk at. This hybrid's styling is energetic and refreshing, with 15-inch alloy wheels, a rear spoiler, and eye-catching LED accent lights. Inside, the 2013 Honda Civic Hybrid is all about subtle comforts, with cloth-covered adjustable front bucket seats, climate control, and interior air filtration. The rear view camera, side mirror turn signals, and front reading lights offer brighter, clearer visibility for drivers. Power accessories like power locks and windows, a tilt/telescopic steering wheel, and front headrests create a supportive and comfortable driving atmosphere.
With so much going for it, it's no surprise that the 2013 Honda Civic Hybrid was named a 2013 IIHS Top Safety Pick+. And we haven't even started discussing the safety features yet! Four-wheel ABS on ventilated front disc and rear drum brakes, emergency brakeforce distribution, and emergency braking assist all work together to bring the vehicle to a safe stop, while stability and traction control keep things running smoothly while you're in motion. Front and rear head airbags, front seatbelt pretensioners, and head restraint whiplash protection systems keep passengers out of harm's way. A remote anti-theft alarm system helps protect the vehicle itself when you're not around.
We think that driving the 2013 Honda Civic Hybrid is entertaining enough on its own, but this vehicle also has an impressive set of entertainment features should you wish for a little more. With 160 watts of total stereo output, audio choices include iPod integration, an auxiliary audio input, a USB connection, AM/FM radio, CD and MP3 playback, and XM satellite radio. And thanks to six total speakers, you won't have any trouble coming up with the perfect soundtrack to your travels.
If the 2013 Honda Civic Hybrid sounds like the eco-friendly model for you, then come down to our NJ Honda dealership to see it in person in our new inventory. And if you have questions, don't hesitate to contact us or come see us to ask us anything about our dealership or our vehicles. The team here at Planet Honda is happy to help!
