Default eg/eh/ej honda civic, what's the difference?

i'm in the market for a 5th gen civic hatch and i need to know what the difference between a EG3, EH2, and a EH3 are. I don't really understand honda's so if someone could explain that kind of stuff to me, that'd be great.

Those are honda's chassis codes. It's easier for me to just give you a link. Scroll down and you'll see the different eh/eg/ej codes. You'll see the country code, chassis code, model, trim level and engine.

For example an eh6 is a USDM Del Sol Si with a d16z6. the engine code reads like this d-series 1.6l vtec. Also, with honda/acura a D series is a sohc and b series dohc. Either way you want a 5th gen hatch. So, you want an EH2 or 3. The EH2 has the mpg happy low horse non-vtec 1.5l the EH3 has a 1.6l vtec. If you can find one a vx hatch(which falls under the EH2) does have a 1.5l vtec and gets something like 45-50mpg.
