The 2008 Honda Civic DX is the base model for the newly redesigned front-wheel drive sedan. A 1.8-liter, 140-hp, 16-valve inline-four engine is matched to a 5-speed manual transmission. The compact sedan rides on an independent suspension with front struts and rear double wishbone. 15-inch wheels with all-season tires are standard, but you can substitute 16- or 17-inch ones. Earning mostly five stars (four in side impact), the 2008 Civic DX features 4-wheel ABS brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution, dual front-side airbags and side curtain airbags for both rows, and front head restraints. Daytime running lights, halogen lamps, and a tire monitor are also included.
The 2008 Civic DX seats four, with 42 inches of front legroom, but only 34 in the backseat. Rear seats split-fold, and the trunk holds a spacious 12 cubic feet. Even though it's a base model, it comes with power windows, locks, and mirrors, an in-dash CD player, intermittent wipers, tilt steering, and a tachometer. Dealer-installed options include an MP3 input jack, foglights, a compass, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, leather steering wheel, and a cargo net.

Achieving 26/34 mpg in a stylish package makes the 2008 Honda Civic LX one of the more popular trims for this front-wheel-drive compact sedan. A 1.8-liter, 140-hp inline four is matched to a five-speed manual transmission and rates 140 ft-lbs of torque. It features a four-wheel independent suspension and double-wishbone rear suspension and rides on 16-inch wheels with all-season tires. Four-wheel disc and ABS brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution, dual front-side and side head airbags for both rows, front head restraints, passenger airbag deactivation, halogen lamps, daytime running lights, and a tire monitor are standard safety features. The 2008 Civic LX earns mostly five stars in crash tests, but four for rollovers.
Building on the base DX, the 2008 Civic LX adds steering-wheel-mounted cruise control, remote entry, a security system, and an MP3 input jack in addition to the CD player with radio data. Other comforts include a full power setup, intermittent wipers, two front power outlets, front cupholders, tinted glass, manually adjustable height settings for the driver's seat, and a split-folding backseat. The trunk holds almost 12 cubic feet. A rear spoiler is standard on the 2008 Civic LX. Dealer-installed options include remote start, a leather steering wheel, an 8-CD changer, foglights, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, cargo net and organizer, and 17-inch wheels.

This affordable yet sleek compact sedan is the base model, equipped with a 5-speed automatic transmission. A 1.8-liter, 140-hp, 4-cylinder i-VTEC engine delivers 128 ft-lbs of torque. The 2008 Honda Civic DX Auto seats four, though the back seat is a bit cramped. Rear seats split-fold onto a trunk that holds 12 cubic feet. A cargo net and organizer can be added. Safety equipment includes daytime running lights, halogen lamps, front disc, rear drum, and 4-wheel ABS brakes, a tire monitor (new this year), dual front-side and side curtain airbags for each row, and passenger airbag deactivation. An auto-dimming rearview mirror is available.
Features are fairly ample for a base model. The 2008 Civic DX Auto comes with power windows, locks, and mirrors, a CD player, intermittent wipers, a tachometer on the two-tier center console, and a tilt steering wheel. There are only front cupholders. Several options enhance the interior, including an MP3 jack and leather steering wheel trim. Foglights, a rear spoiler, and front air dam can also be added. The 26/34 fuel economy and easy handling are the biggest hits with drivers, though road noise and blind spots are cited as downsides.

Brand new this year, the 2008 Honda Civic EX-L starts with the high-end EX trim and adds standard leather upholstery and heated front seats to the package, for a bit more luxury (hence, the L). Otherwise, it is much the same as the EX, with a 140-hp, 1.8-liter, 16-valve inline-four engine and 5-speed manual transmission, front and rear independent and double wishbone rear suspension, and 16-inch wheels with all-season tires. The front-wheel drive sedan earns five stars with 4-wheel disc and ABS brakes and electronic brakeforce distribution, dual front-side and side curtain airbags for both rows, front head restraints, and passenger airbag deactivation. Other safety features include a tire monitor and daytime running lights.
The 2008 Civic EX-L keeps passengers happy with its full power setup; wheel-mounted cruise and audio controls; a 6-speaker sound system with CD player, radio data, and MP3 jack; and sunroof. Convenience features include variable intermittent wipers, remote entry, heated mirrors, a tachometer, temperature display, front and rear cupholders, a sliding center armrest, and split-folding rear seats that open onto a 12-cubic-foot trunk. Leather trim for the steering wheel is also standard, and a cargo net is available for the trunk. Other add-ons include foglights, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a rear spoiler, remote start, a voice-activated navigation system, satellite radio, and an 8-CD changer.

A stiffer sports suspension, front limited-slip differential, 17-inch alloy wheels with all-season tires, and a 2.0-liter, 197-hp DOHC inline-four engine with 6-speed manual transmission signal the racer pretensions of the 2008 Honda Civic Si. Special Si badging, a large rear wing spoiler, body-colored moldings, and alloy interior trim complete the picture. Not sacrificing safety, the 2008 Civic Si includes 4-wheel disc and ABS brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution, dual front-side and side curtain airbags for both rows, daytime running lights, and a tire monitor. The Si adds standard traction and stability control. As with the other trims, this front-wheel drive compact sedan earns five stars in crash tests. Foglights and an auto-dimming rearview mirror cost extra.
Full power features, remote entry, leather trim on the wheel and shifter, wheel-mounted cruise and audio controls, a power sunroof, security system, intermittent wipers, tilt and telescopic steering, and remote entry offer plenty of creature comforts. To enhance the sporty image, an upgraded 7-speaker sound system comes in the 2008 Civic Si, with the CD/MP3 player, which includes radio information. Like the other trims, available options include an 8-CD changer, satellite radio, and a cargo net and organizer. For the Si, 18-inch alloy wheels are also available.
For 2008, a new MUGEN Si trim uses the same 2.0-liter inline-four engine, but uses lighter-weight tires, a lower ride height, stronger shocks, and a track-tuned suspension to improve performance and road feel. The MUGEN Si also adds a front spoiler, side skirts, and MUGEN-specific badging both inside and out. Only 1,000 will be produced for 2008. Otherwise, interior equipment is the same as that of the regular Si.

Fuel-efficient and environmentally friendly, the 2008 Civic Hybrid combines innovative hybrid technology with Honda's reputation for quality and craftsmanship. It also wraps itself in the Civic's clean and contemporary exterior design, which receives high marks from owners and reviewers alike. Competing primarily against the Toyota Prius, the Honda Civic Hybrid receives only a few minor updates for 2008, including a new standard tire pressure monitoring system.
While the Civic Hybrid posts impressive fuel economy numbers of up to 45 mpg on the highway, it gets mixed reviews for its power and performance. Some drivers find it a weak performer with sluggish acceleration, especially when attempting to pass at highway speeds above 70 mph, while others consider it an adequate performer around town.
The Hybrid's powerplant mates an ultra-thin and somewhat underpowered 20-hp electric motor with a 1.3-liter inline four-cylinder (I4) gas engine for a combined 110 hp and 123 lb-ft of torque. In typical operation the two powerplants support each other and operate in unison, which helps improve fuel economy and reduces emissions.
The two powerplants rarely operate separately, although at low speeds of 15 to 20 mph the electric motor sometimes powers the car by itself. In addition, to conserve fuel, a stop/start feature shuts down the Hybrid's engine when the vehicle stops in traffic, and a similar fuel cut-off feature saves gas when the Hybrid decelerates. Regenerative braking recharges the Hybrid's battery. The electric and gas powerplants link to a CVT continuously variable transmission, which was designed for smooth shifting.
Drivers report there's little indication when the gas engine shuts off and the electric motor takes over as the sole provider of power, other than a digital bar graph on the instrument panel, which lights up when the car runs solely on electric power.
While Honda notes fuel economy numbers of up to 45 mpg, some drivers report their disappointment in being unable to achieve numbers that high. The secret, according to reviewers, lies in the way the car is driven. Under aggressive driving by a heavy-footed owner, the car won't achieve fuel economy in the 45-mpg range, but if the driver takes a more leisurely approach and keeps an eye on the dashboard gauges, which give an indication of fuel usage, it's possible to achieve fuel economy numbers in the 40s.

Powered completely by compressed natural gas, the 2008 Honda Civic GX is Honda's first zero-emission vehicle. Its 1.8-liter, 16-valve inline-four engine delivers only 113 hp and 109 ft-lbs of torque, but it gets 24/36 mpg city/highway. A 5-speed automatic is the only transmission. The tank holds only eight gallons, but with the natural gas engine come tax benefits and incentives such as free metered parking in Los Angeles. A Phill refueling unit can be mounted in your home. The GX version of the front-wheel drive Civic sedan is available in New York and California.
Other than its engine and availability, the 2008 Civic GX is much like the LX. Safety equipment includes front disc and rear drum brakes, 4-wheel ABS, dual front-side and side curtain airbags, a tire monitor, and daytime running lights. 15-inch wheels with all-season tires are standard. Foglights and an auto-dimming rearview mirror are optional.
Interior features are plentiful, with power windows, locks, and mirrors, wheel-mounted cruise control, keyless entry, and a CD/MP3 player with radio data. The sound system features only two speakers. Other equipment includes intermittent wipers, tilt and telescopic steering, a tachometer and temperature display, front power outlets, and front cupholders. The rear bench seat split-folds, and the trunk holds 6 cubic feet of cargo. A net and organizer can be added. Satellite radio, leather trim for the steering wheel, and cupholders for the rear passengers are available.

Taking the sporty Si one step further, the 2008 Honda Civic Si Mugen debuts with more enhanced performance features. It makes better use of the 2.0-liter, 197-hp i-VTEC 4-cylinder engine that gets 139 ft-lbs of torque at 6100 RPM. The 6-speed manual transmission features closer-ratio gears. Using the Formula 1 experience of the Mugen folks, the 2008 Civic Si Mugen features a track-tuned suspension, performance exhaust, and lighter-weight 18-inch aluminum wheels with summer tires for better cornering and sportier handling. The ride height has been lowered half an inch to 5.3 inches.
Appropriate Mugen badging adorns this front-wheel drive mid-sized sedan. A body kit boosts aerodynamic performance, with both front and rear spoilers (the rear one is adjustable), larger side skirts, and a blacked out grille. On the inside, the 2008 Civic Si Mugen acts like a sedan, with 60/40 split-folding rear seats. Full power features include remote entry. A leather steering wheel and aluminum shifter knob, a security system, and sunroof are also part of the package. Entertainment-wise, a 7-speaker CD player features MP3 playback and comes with satellite radio when you choose the optional navigation system. Also available is an 8-CD changer.
Safety is supplied by dual-stage front airbags and side curtain bags for both rows. Active head restraints and passenger deactivation are also standard. ABS brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution, stability control, and a limited slip differential improve traction and control. Daytime running lights are included, but foglights cost extra.
