Get A Honda That Mirrors Your Go Green Lifestyle

If you are looking for a Honda Civic for sale in New York Planet Honda has got you covered. Have you considered the Honda Civic GX? The Civic GX is a fuel efficient car that runs on compressed natural gas. Most recently the Honda Civic GX was named the greenest car of 2011 by the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy. Hybrid and electric cars are a hot commodity in the go green world we live in today. Why not trust a car company that has been producing natural gas-powered cars since 1998?


The compressed natural gas definitely does make the GX run differently from other civics. By using natural gas these cars are producing 30 percent less CO2 than cars that use regular gasoline. Another large difference is the car only produces 110 horsepower and 106 pound-feet of torque. But don't worry these items definitely don't take anything away from the GX.


Even with these few differences, there many similarities to the gasoline version Civic. The interior of the car is very similar to the Civic EX-L including the navigation system and instrument cluster. The interior is also as spacious as other civics which makes up for the lost space in the trunk. The few tweaks that have been made are not obvious to the naked eye.


Even when you're out on the road with the GX you will notice little difference between how the GX handles compared to gasoline civics.  The 5 speed automatic (like all other 2012 Civics) keeps up with the surrounding traffic. The GX maintains its speed when climbing hills and the acceleration time is only seconds longer than other civics.


Overall, the fuel efficient and environmentally conscious Civic GX is comparable to the gasoline fueled model. Make sure you come visit us at Planet Honda, one of the best Honda dealerships in NJ.
