Torrance, Calif. 10/06/2003 -- The Honda Civic, one of America's best selling cars for the past decade, receives significant exterior and interior enhancements for the 2004 model year for both the 2-door coupe and 4-door sedan body styles.

Both the Civic Coupe and Civic Sedan receive freshened exterior styling - including redesigned front and rear bumpers, hood, headlights and front grille - imbuing the Civic with a stronger stance and a bolder, more aggressive, personality. On the Sedan with EX trim level, 15" alloy wheels become standard equipment, while the Coupe EX receives a new alloy wheel design. For the LX model Coupe and Sedan, wheel size increases to 15" from 14". Both the Coupe and Sedan lineup feature a new Magnesium Metallic exterior color with gray interior. Coupe models add Fiji Blue Pearl exterior color for 2004. A Value Package, based on the DX trim level, adds air conditioning, CD player and center console with armrest and storage on both Coupe and Sedan body styles, resulting in a savings of approximately $500.

For the interior enhancements, both Coupe and Sedan models add standard keyless entry on LX trim level, and floormats standard on both EX and LX trim levels. The stereo system receives an upgrade with improved audio speakers. Additionally, the interior on both the Coupe and Sedan has added enhanced sound dampening materials to the doors to reduce road noise.

The 2004 Honda Civic is offered with automatic and 5-speed manual transmission. The sporty and economical Civic HX Coupe leads the Civic lineup in fuel economy and is available with either a 5-speed manual transmission or an automatic CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission). The Civic family is rounded out by the environmentally conscious, gasoline-electric powered Civic Hybrid and sporty, performance-oriented Civic Si.

The natural gas powered Civic GX, dubbed the "cleanest internal combustion engine in the world" by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), returns for 2004 with the same freshened updated styling as the 2004 Civic Sedan. Additionally, a new console with armrest and storage bin have been added to the interior, and floormats are standard for 2004. The GX's stereo receives improved front speakers and adds keyless entry as standard equipment. Shoreline Mist Metallic and Eternal Blue Pearl have been added to the external color palate.

The 2004 Honda Civic retains its position as an environmental leader in the small car category. All Civic Sedan and Civic Coupe models are rated as Ultra Low Emission Vehicle (ULEV) in all 50 states, while the natural gas-powered Civic GX and the gas-electric Civic Hybrid are the first vehicles to meet California's stringent "Advanced Technology Partial Zero Emissions Vehicle" or AT-PZEV requirements.

All Civic Sedan and Coupe models come equipped with a full host of advanced safety attributes, including Honda's available advanced side airbag system on the Coupe with available side air bags. The Civic Coupe earned a five-star rating for all passengers in the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's (NHTSA) frontal and side impact crash tests.
