The fuel economy remains relatively the same for most of the Honda Civic models. However, there is a new Civic HF variant that is rated at 41mpg highway. The fuel efficiency and power have been improved in the Hybrid models. The sporty Civic Si has a new 2.4-liter engine that produces a boost in the torque, last years model was only a 2.0-liter engine.

For the features of the Civic lineup, the stability control is now standard throughout all five of the 2012 Civic models.  The interior has an increase in space with 3-inch additional shoulder room and a 1.6-inch increase in additional legroom for the back seat. There are also a couple new technological features such as a 5-inch information display and an increased availability for iPod connectivity.
