We knew from the first anouncement that it was using the same powertrain as the Civic Hybrid, just with lighter (read: cheaper) IMA hardware. No manual tranny. (BOOOO!!!!)This is a marketing response because people want their hybrids to look different from other non-hybrid cars. I find the design very handsome. The front night view is sweet. Dash looks nice. The line to buy one forms to the right.
