Honda Civic Hybrid chosen as the greenest car in Germany

The Honda Civic Hybrid is the greenest car in Germany. That's the statement made by the Verkehrsclub Deutschland (VCD), which has just released their annual report for the 2008 model year. The Civic Hybrid managed to accomplish all the requirements VCD asked in a car, not only on the greener side of the equation but also in aspects such as handling and ease of operation. The test included noise levels, fuel consumption and low emissions as well.

This is the second time Honda wins the first position in this test (first time was in 2006), in which up to 350 cars are tested. This year, the first runner up was the Toyota Prius, followed by the Citro├źn C1, Peugeot 106 and Toyota Aygo (fitted to the base 1.0 liter engine). The list continues then with the Daihatsu Cuore and Trevis, the VW Polo BlueMotion, the Daihatsu Sirion and the Mazda 2.
