It’s no secret why the 2013 Honda Civic is one of America’s favorite vehicles: drivers get a comfortable, practical vehicle that’s fun to drive and gets incredible fuel economy. Plus, with options like the 2013 Honda Civic Hybrid and Honda Civic Natural Gas, Merrillville and Highland drivers can get one of the most economically priced fuel-saving vehicles on the market today. The 2013 Honda Civic can even give sturdy competition like the 2013 Toyota Prius a run for its money. The alternatively fueled Honda and Toyota models all get exceptional fuel economy and similar horsepower, but the 2013 Honda Civic Natural Gas and Hybrid models are priced lower and offer more torque than the Toyota Prius.

How Honda Bests the Competition

Highland and Merrillville drivers will not only save money by choosing the Civic, but they’ll find it more enjoyable to drive without that jerky, gear-shifting feel that  a lot of hybrids and alternatively fueled vehicles offer.

The Honda Civic’s curb weight is more than 400 pounds lighter than the Toyota Prius, which no doubt gives it that extra oomph out on the road, as well as making it more manageable with tighter maneuverability. Ironically, even though the 2013 Toyota Prius is larger, the 2013 Honda Civic is also roomier for passengers.

In addition to the added torque and lighter body weight, Merrillville and Highland drivers are going to prefer the 2013 Honda Civic’s smooth body style and aesthetic improvements. While both the natural gas and hybrid models of the 2013 Honda Civic have the sharp sedan styling that belie its alternative fuel status, the 2013 Toyota Prius has that obtrusive “bubble-shaped” look. Fuel economy is important, but drivers still want a stylish vehicle that looks good out on the roads of Indiana, and that choice is clearly the 2013 Honda Civic.
