But wait, there's more! You can't compare MPG between 1998 and 2007 without taking the new EPA MPG tests into account...

I compared "automatic to automatic" transmission in the above picture. I didn't pick the Civic HX because that's a "special" drivetrain...

Curb weights are almost equal ...

They're about dead even...

But wait, a drive a CiViC HX...

Look, I don't dislike the Yaris! It's a sub!

However, that's where the similarity ends... that and the mileage!

My HX has 160+ HP - a 8200 RPM cutoff - and gets 40+ MPG.

His Yaris has 106 HP downhill with a tailwind - and it gets 41+ MPG.

It's a whole different driving experience - believe me!

Here's a typical B16A2 (nothing special) just like mine and everyone elses'...

0-95 MPH (153 km/h)
There are dozens of videos on YouTube like this!

Here's a Yaris...

0-87 MPH (140 km/h)
Notice any difference, or is it just me?
.:: B16A2 HX/Si Coupe | '98 HX shell with full '99 CiViC Si swap | 40+ MPG
Listen to the people who fail. They know what they're talking about!
