Default How is the Honda Civic Hybrid in the snow?

Lots of snow where I live. I don't want a car that can't perform, but I want good gas mileage.

A Honda Civic Hybrid will perform in the snow as well as a standard Honda. It will just use less fuel doing it.

Like most smaller cars, it does not have a lot of ground clearance so if you have to go through unplowed snow more than a few inches deep you probably will have problems.You may want to put snow times on it. I did not even though I live where there is snow all winter, but I am retired and can (and do) postpone many trips if the weather is too bad.You also should be aware that your gas milage will decrease in cold weather, particularly if you are making a lot of shorter trips. While this is true in all cars, it seems more noticable when you paid extra for better mileage.From my perspective, the Civic Hybrid is about like any other smaller car in the snow.
