The 2014 Honda Civic
The 2014 Civic Hybrid features a 1.5-litre, 8-valve, 2-stage i-VTEC® four-cylinder gasoline engine equipped with Honda’s Integrated Motor Assist (IMA©) system coupled with a Lithium-Ion battery pack, producing 110 horsepower and 127 lb-ft of torque. The 2-stage i-VTEC system cuts off all four cylinders, allowing the electric motor to propel the car at low speeds or while cruising on a level surface. The cylinders also cut off during deceleration for friction reduction. All Civic models except the Coupe Si and Sedan Si feature Honda’s ECO Assist™ technology, which can help drivers operate the vehicle more efficiently.
