No, the Civic Hybrid has a CVT, which is a totally automatic transmission. CVT stands for continuously variable transmission. CVTs are computer controlled to give the best performance desired by the driver. It will use the best ratio to deliver either maximum fuel economy, performance, or a combination of both. CVTs do this by keeping the engine speed (RPMs) in the correct range to deliver the desired results, usually a higher engine speed for performance and a lower engine speed for fuel efficiency. And a different program for hybrids, I am sure. Hope this helps.
