Honda’s diverse lineup of fuel efficient 2014 Civic models is boosted by the addition of the 2014 Civic Hybrid and Civic Natural Gas models.

According to the company, the 2014 Honda Civic Hybrid has an improved EPA rating of 44/47/45 city/highway/combined, up from the 2013 model’s 44/44/44.

The 2014 Civic Hybrid will go on-sale today, Feb. 5, at Honda dealerships with a manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) starting at $24,635.

The 2014 Civic Natural Gas will be available at Honda dealers in 37 states on Feb. 15 with an MSRP starting at $26,640 and a combined EPA rating of 31 mpg.

For 2014, the sophistication and value of the Civic Hybrid and Civic Natural Gas are enhanced with a host of new standard features, says the company.

They include new Display Audio with 7-inch touchscreen that allows users to pinch, swipe and tap just like a smartphone to access audio, phonebook, media, vehicle information and available navigation features.

The touchscreen display is also the interface for the next-generation HondaLink, an application-based platform that allows a seamless integration between a user’s smartphone and the car, providing access to online and cloud-based content and information both inside and outside the car.

Standard on both models is the Expanded View Driver’s Mirror that, together with the available LaneWatch display, enhances the driver’s surrounding view.

For additional convenience, Smart Entry with Push Button Start comes standard on the Civic Hybrid, allowing for easy entry and engine starting without turning an ignition key.

New for 2014, the Civic Natural Gas Leather Navi model gains additional premium features such as leather seats, heated front seats, heated side mirrors and a six-speaker audio system.

The Civic Natural Gas’ standard interior has also been upgraded with more premium seating materials and door panel trim.
