The Honda Civic 4-Door Sedan. With seats so comfortable they would be more at home in your living room, our newest Civic is a true sedan in every sense. You'll feel equally comfortable at the steering wheel. Car and Driver magazine said the Honda wheel is better made than your average Mercedes wheel. A tachometer, quartz digital clock, and even a remote trunk release will give you some idea of the kind of attention to detail that has gone into the building of this car. SOME SIMPLE ENGINEERING FACTS. Naturally, being a Honda, the new Civic Sedan has front-wheel drive and a transverse mounted 1500 CVCC®engine. So your passengers have more foot and legroom. Available with the 5-speed gearbox or the optional 3-speed automatic trans mission, this car is also a lot of fun to drive. Due in part to the rack and pinion steering and 4-wheel independent suspension. ©1980American Honda Motor Co., Inc. INCREDIBLE GAS MILEAGE. STILL A CIVIC RESPONSIBILITY. With 5-speed, a gallon of gas takes you an EPA estimated 134 miles and 44 highway miles. Use 34 mpg for comparison. Your mileage may differ depending on weather, speed and trip length. Actual highway mileage will probably be less. And figures for California will be lower. Nevertheless, the Civic Sedan gives you gas mileage that's among the best in its class. And that's bound to make you feel more comfortable. Not to mention well-off. We make it simple.
