I have a new Civic HF, and it gets great MPG. I call the color "Battleship Gray."
Got it for a low price, since it has some hail damage on roof, trunk and hood, but not noticable until a foot away. I was looking into an LX in the new blue, but found this HF for less $. I like getting alloys, without having to get a sunroof that cuts headroom. Also, it sits lower than an LX.
When the 2012 came out I thought it looked better, but then all the snarky blogs ripped it. But, I don't care what hipsters say, I buy what I like, not to fit in. I think there are still some fans who miss the 1992-95 Si hatch and will criticize any new Civic.
