Honda is accessorizing its two smallest, most efficient models. Debuting at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas is the Civic HFP Concept, which starts life as a stock Civic Si sedan. To this extremely-capable platform, Honda adds a series of aero-tweaks designed to improve the car's efficiency, such as a body kit with a new front fascia and ground effects. Especially interesting are the new lightweight alloy wheels with hybrid-like aero covers. The suspension has also been lowered a bit to bring the whole package a bit lower to the ground. These changes have been derived from a Japanese racing event called the Super Taikyu Series, which uses a version of the Civic Type R. Honda claims that these modifications can both improve the performance of the Civic Si and its fuel efficiency.
Slotting under the Civic in Honda's U.S. lineup is the new Fit hatchback and Honda has announced a new line of performance and appearance parts for that model as well under its longtime tuning arm known as Mugen.
