Honda brought the whole family of 2012 Civics to the party at this year's New York Auto Show.

The 2012 Civic coupe, sedan and GX are all powered by a 1.8-liter inline four-cylinder engine that produces 140 horsepower. In uber-efficient HF guise, the same engines is capable of returning 5,74 L/100 km fuel economy on the highway. The standard coupe and sedan are nearly as frugal at 6 L/100 km on the highway. We'll have a separate report on the new Civic Hybrid soon, but in the meantime know that it will be rated at 5,36 L/100 km combined.

Were it our money on the line, however, we'd trade a few miles per gallon for a bit more driving excitement. The 2012 Honda Civic Si would be our choice, with its new 200-horsepower/170 pound-feet of torque 2.4-liter four-cylinder. Still, this is a compact Honda and, when paired with the six-speed manual gearbox, the Civic Si achieves 6 L/100 km on the highway.
