We picked up the Sport Touring Hatchback yesterday and brought it home. Today we took a 150 mile trip for lunch, up and down hills, through twisties, all on two lane roads and averaged 34.5 MPG. Three more trips like that and it'll be broken in and we can really see what it can do. We were impressed with the handling and the way the CVT handled hills without the annoying bog down then shift down. I think it's going to be a great stablemate for our other one.

Here are shots of it in the delivery bay and snuggled up next to her older brother.

Nice Vette!!!!Welcome to the Civic Family
Thank you. We had a 1992 Civic Si hatchback that my wife dearly loved. This one is a worthy heir to that one, with a large dose of technology added. It's a fun car. It's going to be tougher now deciding which one to drive.
