2010 Honda Civic vs. Its Competition

2010 Honda Civic Hybrid 4-door Sedan L4 CVT Angular Front Exterior View

The clean-diesel Volkswagen Jetta TDI delivers real-world highway fuel economy in the 40s (usually far in excess of its EPA ratings), with cleaner emissions than diesels of the past.

It's a sportier choice for highway driving.

The Civic Hybrid's stablemate, the Honda Civic GX, runs on natural gas rather than gasoline.

Though it has a rather short range, it offers good power and fuel economy, and it's actually the cleanest Civic on the road.

Plus, aside from the fueling process, you'd never know from behind the wheel that it's not a gas-engine car.

Finally, the Civic Hybrid's main rival is probably the all-new Toyota Prius, the hybrid vehicle pioneer that's now in its third generation.

The latest Prius has excellent interior room and even better fuel economy, along with hatchback utility, but its plus is the same as its minus: Everyone will know you're driving a hybrid.
