Now that gas has been steady well above $2 a gallon I bet American buyers would be eager to buy some of the other models Honda sells elsewhere but does not bring here. Many folks would forgo a little performance for much better economy. Examples are: the 3-door and 5-door Civics with 1.4 liter engine and getting 52.3 mpg highway, the HR-V (small SUV) with 1.6 liter and getting 37.2 mpg, and the Jazz 5-door getting 60.1 mpg. These are all currently sold in the UK. See them on the Web at: http://www.honda.co.uk/ :shock: :?

Stoner,

You are right -- I forgot about your bigger Imperial gallon. It seems like it would be a small step for Honda to bring the high mileage version Civics produced in UK to the U.S. After all, Honda does already import the 2-liter Si version here from UK -- it just gets poor mpg since it is performance oriented at the expense of economy.
