The Beauty of the Civic Mugen Si Sedan

The Civic Mugen Si Sedan was a beautiful fuse between the genius of Honda and Mugen. Actually, Mugen has been a long partner of Honda, giving the best body kits for any hyped-up Civic. Also, it is the first four-door sedan to ever wear Honda's badge of “Si”, and it will be the first in the country to wear the name of Mugen. Thus, this fusion created the beauty that was the Civic Mugen Si Sedan.

It was created from a “Formula Sport” concept, adding aggressiveness to the Civic. Its Twin Ring Motegi track-tuned suspension, aerodynamic body styling and performance exhaust system caused a lot of Civic-lovers to drool over this baby. It is a must-have indeed, and Honda has yet proven its ingenious capabilities to revolutionize the Civic for everyone. Just imagine how great it would be to live the Honda Civic Life.

Why should we drive the Hybrid?

The genius behind the Honda Civic Hybrid is the people's struggle to beat the continuous gas price increase. After all, those oil magnates did not think that they could outsmart car owners forever, did they?

The idea behind the power that drives the Hybrid is the revolutionary Advanced Technology Partial Zero-Emission Vehicle (AT-PZEV) rating. This means that it gives you better gas mileage, while at the same time helping the environment enjoy its freedom from harsh pollutants. As a matter of fact, it was named the World Car of the Year Award for greenest car in 2006, and it was among the highest fuel economy ratings. It also received recognition as the Best New Car for Commuters in the 2007 awards. Honda understands not only its patrons, but its environment as well. Thus, the Honda Civic Hybrid is a manifestation of how the Civic undergoes its evolution to satisfy everybody's welfare. Just imagine how great it must be to live the Honda Civic Life.

Honda Civic on the fast lane

The ultimate racing film to hit the streets of Hollywood is undoubtedly The Fast and the Furious. This flashy film has it all---the guys, the girls, and the cars. But what is more interesting is how they were able to optimize the 1995 Honda Civic Coupe. One unforgettable scene was when the lead cast enacted their Modus Operandi to steal from a container truck. The 1995 Honda Civic Coupe was utilized as the cars who could hide under the truck and move with the same speed and agility to be the getaway car.

Of course these stunts are possible with the help of the production people (because in reality, the Honda Civic is not that small to fit underneath a truck), but the effect was still perfect. The 1995 Honda Civic proved its flexibility and versatility in the movie. It was all pimped out with green underglow, and it was also used for some racing scenes.

This only proves how timeless the functionality and style of a Honda Civic is. With all the possible things that you could do with it, just imagine how great it must be to live the Honda Civic Life.

These latest results are equivalent to Honda's stable place at the top five for the past five surveys. The Jazz finished first in its own category, making it an undefeated streak since it was first introduced in the 2004 results. The Jazz also finished third in the overall model ranking table, making it Honda’s highest achieving model to appear.

Meanwhile, the Civic 3-door and 5-door models continue their attack on the sales charts.

Honda Civic-Then and Now

The thirty four impressive years that the Honda Civic stayed with us is yet to be determined-because they are sure to stay for more.

Since its debut in 1973, the Civic has become a household name for people across the globe. The much-loved Hatchback and Sedan were appreciated for its efficiency-a fun little car with great space than any other large cars. Its all-independent suspension easily made the Civic an “agile econobox” that could run at par with its competitors like the Ford Pinto and the Chevrolet Vega.

Fast-forward to 2007, the Honda Civic Sedan mirrors the evolution that it underwent to achieve perfection. It even gave birth to another breed-the Hybrid Civic.

The Honda Civic is not just another car-it is a life. The way it keeps you mobile (and attractive to the eyes of many) and concerned about the environment makes it hard to imagine a life without one. It is like a companion, a leader, and a very reliable friend that helps us get through the hard and rainy days... So if you don't have one, just imagine what you have been missing.
