The 2010 Honda Civic Hybrid ranks highly among 2010 small cars for its many standard features, excellent fuel economy and high safety ratings.
If you need a small used car with chart-topping fuel economy, you may not have to look further than the 2010 Honda Civic Hybrid. With a 1.3-liter inline four-cylinder engine and an electric motor, it gets 40/45 mpg city/highway, making it one of the most fuel-efficient 2010 small cars. Test drivers called the Civic Hybrid’s powertrain sluggish, but that’s not a surprising critique for a hybrid car. The Civic Hybrid prioritizes efficiency, and car reviewers said it has sufficient power for city driving.
The 2010 Civic Hybrid comes with more standard features than many of its competitors. It has automatic climate control and a six-speaker stereo with auxiliary and USB ports. You can also find models equipped with navigation, though reviewers said the system seemed dated when compared with those found in other cars. The Civic Hybrid also has standard traction control, electronic stability control and electronic brake-force distribution, which are safety features that were optional or unavailable on many 2010 small cars.
