I read in the Cars and Drivers magazine that the 2006 Civic has already been launched in US on September 15. They have the coupe, sedan, and the hybrid. The coupe has a 2.0 Liter engine which pulls close to 200 horses. Hybrid has a 1.3 liter engine and a battery engine and has increased 20 horses more than the previous civic hyrbid. The sedan has increased from 1.7 liter to 1.8 liter and a navigation system is also now available. I havent seen any of these civics in the streets but im hoping i see one by middle of october. When i do, i will take pics.
