The 5th gen CX, the cheaper sibling to the VX. It has the same transmission as the VX, but coupled to a 70 HP non-lean burn engine, the same light weight, but fewer bells and whistles inside than the VX. The Aerocivic is based on the CX, since that is what I was driving when I started aeromodding. In stock form it gets mileage in the 40's and can break 50mpg cruising at 60mph on the interstate. It can be hypermiled into the 50's and low 60's mpg, and adding aeromodding gets you into the 70's mpg. It is easy enough to drop a lean burn engine into it if you can find one.
