Honda Civic Hybrid
Honda Civic Hybrid
Overall mpg: 42, according to more stringent 2008 EPA testing regimen
Safety: 5 stars in NHTSA testing for all but front occupant side impact protection, which is 4 stars.

There are a couple of soft spots in this Honda's otherwise stellar safety regimen. One four-star rating for front seat side impact protection is barely worth mentioning.

More disappointing is that electronic stability control, a technology that helps keep the car under control during abrupt maneuvers, is not available on the Civic Hybrid.

The Civic Hybrid's mileage comes within shouting distance of a Prius - in terms of highway mileage, they're the same - but it does offer better crash test scores.

Otherwise, its biggest downsides compared to the Prius are less rear-leg room and luggage space.
