It appears that Honda may have left out a little insulation in the interests of keeping this car light. It’s not exactly noisy, just a little more noisy than most cars at this price level.

Conditions for the test drive were incredible (isn’t the Bay Area great), with clear skies and eighty to ninety-degree temperatures. I drove a combination of highway, city surface streets, and winding back roads. I think the conditions in which we tested the car will be consistent with how most people will drive the car.

The unique positon of BMW ActiveHybrid X6 within the BMW X segment as a whole follows very clearly and convincingly from the comparison of these performance figures, on the one hand, with the vehicle’s fuel consumption and emission ratings, on the other. The BMW ActiveHybrid X6 combines its supreme dynamism with equally fascinating efficiency, with fuel average fuel consumption in the EU test cycle of just 9.9 ltr/100 km (equal to 28.5 mpg imp) and a CO2 rating of 231 grams per kilometre.

Dan Neil of the Los Angeles Times identifies the Civic Hybrid's defining characteristic as its sloping windshield. He explained, "The slicked-back windshield look is often used on concept cars but is discarded in production cars because it creates an unmanageable flat space behind the steering wheel. Honda designers turned this space to their advantage, creating a beautiful two-tier instrument panel limned in organic shapes."

Particularly the very impressive Powerdome on the engine compartment lid ensures a clear distinction of this very special vehicle from outside, “ActiveHybrid” model designations on the tailgate trim bar and the front doors as well as body paint in exclusive Bluewater metallic offered for the first time on a BMW X6 likewise alluding to the very special character of this very special vehicle.

The electric motors can also be run in reverse to harvest wasted power during braking. This power is used to charge a high-volt energy storage unit. BMW is already doing something like this with Brake Energy Regeneration, something that’s appearing on conventional combustion engine BMWs in the European market.

The Civic Hybrid fetches a slightly higher price: $21,850 or $23,350 when equipped with Honda's optional satellite linked navigation system. That's still a very affordable car. With fuel efficiency above 50, a full-hybrid system, and a sleek new design—and a price thousands below the Prius—Honda finally has a real competitor for Toyota.

Honda Civic sedans have always been fairly boxy in nature and it seems that Honda has always been satisfied to leave it to the aftermarket to improve this car’s looks. Not the case with this Civic sedan. The exterior design is smooth and flowing. And the Si package looks like it originated in the aftermarket. Nothing too crazy, but eye-catching none-the-less. I think they did a great job with the exterior design of this vehicle. It looks very modern and should age well.

In power split drive mode, one of the electric motors acts as a generator, converting some of the engine’s power into electrical current to charge the capacitors. The power can also be channeled into the second electric motor. This second electric motor gets power from either the first electric motor or the capacitor and generates mechanical power for the output drive shaft.
