The EX is "higher" than the HX, though it depends on what generation (year) and model (civic, etc) you are asking about. Generally the HX is the more fuel efficient one, and has less features than the EX (sunroof, etc) and usually less power. I don't believe it is an acronym for anything.

I have 97 civic HX manual and I love it. It has nice aluminum wheels (stock), PW, PL, AM/FM cassette nice looks and incredible fuel economy. I have gotten 53 mpg on the highway and average at least 40. That's what the HX is all about.

HX was a model of the Honda Civic available in 96 and 97. There are also older HXs, but they are pretty rare and I don't know a lot about them. The 96-97s came with all of the power options of the EX, plus a set of lightweight Enkei alloy wheels (labelled Honda of course), a tall-ratio 5 speed transmission, and a lean-burn e-VTEC engine. A high-tech continuously variable transmission was also available, although I have never seen one with it. The goal of this car was fuel economy. The VTEC engine was tuned to use less fuel but still make decent power and meet emissions standards. It makes about 10 HP more than a standard Civic CX/DX/LX and about 10 HP less than an EX. It is slower in traffic than an EX, but gets better gas mileage (see above answer for a real-world estimate). Great car, totally worth the money.

The "HX" indicates that it is the Civic with the VTEC-E lean burn motor.It doesn't have as much power or bells and whistles as the EX, but the power difference is very small and in my opinion, worth it for the killer gas mileage you get in return.Basically with this engine, they use the VTEC technology to acheive high fuel efficiency rather than all out performance. It's not the #1 choice for performance, but it does have better power than the non-VTEC version of the same engine in the base model. It's more than sufficient performance for the average driver (its not slow) and the gas mileage is excellent (44 mpg highway I beleive with the 5 speed) which is close to hybrid mileage without the extra expense. The "automatic" Civic HX came with a CVT which helps give you better mileage than a traditional automatic with a torque converter.
