    Default 2002 Civic Hybrid JDM Test Drive

    A car dealer has it in Islamabad and I took a short test drive yesterday. Unlike the Pakistani assembled crap, this car had a Lancer like soft, supple, and comfortable ride. After I drove this, I felt like I was in suzuki Mehran. My car's ride is very stiff, jumpy and bumpy.

    This 1.3L Automatic was almost as quick as my 2002 1.6L Prosmatec.

    was this with the HYBRID engine? that should be the main feature of this car...talk about that instead.

    This was my first HYBRID test-drive ever. One cool thing with the Hybrids is that they don't have a regular engine-starter "(or self maarna) as we call it." The moment you turn the ignition key, the engine starts and attains its idle RPM without you hearing the regular starter noise of a normal engine.

    Other than that, its pick was very impressive considering that fact that its only a 1.3L engine (I wonder if the electric motor is helping out to achieve peak acceleration).

    Comparing it to my 1.6L Vti Prosmatec, I guess that the JDM Hybrid shouldn't have a problem beating the local assembled Exi Prosmatec. My car feels just a tad bit faster than the Hybrid.
