The first generation Honda Civic Hybrid with a five speed is for the kind of man whose devotion to Popular Mechanics was the end of his first serious relationship. He who attempts to rebuild an automatic transmission in his garage for fun. Since I occasionally stick my toes into the pool of pedantry, I earnestly appreciate the efforts myself.

Every possible exploitation of efficiency has been built into this vehicle, to the point of absurdity. Power is derived from a miniscule 85 horsepower 1. Braking and coasting contribute charge to the battery packs, and when no throttle input is used, three out of 4 cylinders completely close their valves, eking out a further decrease in consumption.

Hydraulic power steering is replaced with an electric system, to minor chagrin of the spirited driver, with an MPG fragment gained in return.

All told, this fanatical devotion to efficiency nets you almost 50 miles to the gallon at highway speed, and low 40s around town, provided you drive like a political science student who needs a boyfriend to remind her when oil changes are due. But hybrid vehicles have always been chastised for their lack of driving feel.

When all of your time is spent trying to figure out how to make an engine run as lean as the staff at a Subway franchise without melting itself, you rather forget about things like steering feel and excitement.

Especially when you know your target market is comprised of people who lean towards the steering wheel when driving, for whom the fentanyl-laced voice of Ira Glass meandering across the radio waves is a daily high point. But the Civic does an admirable job of maintaining a decent feel about town, mainly due to the ability to play around with the 5 speed stick. The only reasoning I can fathom behind this seemingly contradictory choice is the fitment of a more resilient clutch than necessary, because the Civic is difficult to smoothly get off the line.

You are. Where it really falls down is flat out acceleration, mostly due to a 3. The other highway related qualm is tires with high rolling resistance. These produce more background droning noise than your girlfriend when you come home from the bar drunk at 3 A.

M, when all you can focus on is repeating the last verse of the classic G-Funk hit Regulators while Charles Barkley and John Madden analyze replays of your winning pool shot from behind a tiny Sportscenter desk located near your pituitary gland. Honda tried to get all edgy on us with the center stack, like that one time your dad tried to switch to snowboarding.

Kids like being different for no reason, asymmetry is in! Looming wealth gap increases, one strap backpacks, pencil grips, nonsensical pop band names, Frank Lloyd Wright! Gauges are the only place where this car stands out.

This is mainly accomplished through the IMA monitor cluster, which looks like it came from one of those futuristic Tom Cruise movies, with its circles, and digital gauges with sharp incremental units displayed when a linear would be more appropriate. Why do magnetic levitation cars sound like laundry dryers? The Civic was the first time I ever sat behind the wheel of a Hybrid, and overall I found myself pleasantly surprised.

Shame, then, that Honda only saw fit to offer the manual transmission from , especially considering the relatively high take rate on the stick. Thousands of model train enthusiasts comparing fuel mileage, optimal throttle position, how close one can slipstream behind semi trailers, and upshift timing. Suburban families, vainly trying to offset the consumerist guilt brought on by the Four Winns and accompanying Honda Pilot occupying the opposite side of their driveway.

And all of them own a great car. Like an honest girlfriend, the only faults with the Civic Hybrid five speed are the ones you knew you were getting into, the ones you accepted because the trade off was worth it for you. The A. Swayze Train GTi. Filed to: Honda Civic Hybrid Manual.
