2012 Honda Civic Natural Gas Starts at $26,155

Honda has announced the pricing for the 2012 Honda Civic Natural Gas, which was formally known as the Civic GX. The 2012 Honda Civic Natural Gas starts at $26,155 and arrives in dealerships this month.

The Civic Natural Gas is powered by a modified version of the 1.8L four-cylinder that powers the other Civic models. It is mated to a five-speed automatic transmission and gets 27/38 mpg. Compared to the previous model, city fuel economy is up by 12.5 percent and highway fuel economy is improved by 5.5 percent. Although the Civic Natural Gas may not be as efficient as the Civic Hybrid, the Civic Natural Gas currently qualifies for a state-issued decal allowing single-occupant access to High-Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) “carpool” lanes in California and several other states.
