They wanted to build Inspired by youa car that could take on the Autobahns of Germany as easily as it could the hairpins of Southern France. They wanted a car that could survive in the harsh elements of Northern Europe and still look stylish when cruising along by the Mediterranean. So they drew inspiration from Europe. Not just for style but for its varied cultures and way of life. The result is a truly unique car that has something for everyone. 4. 8421 Civic Brochure FULL BROCHURE:Layout 1 4/12/07 14:10 Page 7EXTERIOR DESIGN 6 7Hondas Jet.The experimental HondaJetchallenges standard aircraftdesign with the radical andimaginative solution of locatingthe engines on top of theInnovation from every anglewings instead of underneath,which increases fuel economyby 40% and allows 30% more We're not just talking about the shape.whilst keeping the wheels firmly on the roadcabin space.

So we borrowed from our racing heritage to create the unique dual zone dashboard. It puts all the vital information in your peripheral vision, so you need never take your eyes from the road. All the main controls and switches are just a touch away from around the steering wheel. The dual link cockpit with its high quality finish makes you feel at one with the car, whilst the unique optional i-SHIFT (Automatic Manual Transmission) allows you to choose your transmission option. Select M (manual) mode for a sporty drive without a clutch to slow changes down. Or A (automatic) mode for a more relaxed but equally exhilarating driving experience.Optional i-SHIFT allows you to chooseeither automatic or manual driving. There are paddle shifts on the wheel for manualchanges, just like Formula 1. 7. 8421 Civic Brochure FULL BROCHURE:Layout 1 4/12/07 14:10Page 13INTERIOR DESIGN 12 13 Surrounded by intelligence The new Civic is the intelligent choice.It even has the latest voice recognition system fit- Its innovative satellite navigation system uses bothted as standard. pan-European DVD based mapping software andSimply speak your instructions and it will makeGPS (Global Positioning System) to determinethe necessary changes for you.
