Honda Civic Si Coupe - Honda Civic Tour
From Honda press: Celebrating 10 years of bringing the hottest acts in music across the country, American Honda Motor Co., Inc. is proud to present the 2011 Honda Civic Tour featuring blink-182 and My Chemical Romance.
"With the tenth anniversary of the Civic tour and the launch of the all-new ninth generation Civic, the timing couldn't have been better to bring back one of the biggest bands from tours past," said Tom Peyton, Honda brand manager for American Honda Motor Co., Inc. "This year's lineup of blink-182 and My Chemical Romance is fun, exciting, hard-rocking and energetic - everything the Civic Tour has stood for over the past 10 years."
"It's great to be going back out on the Honda Civic Tour," said Mark Hoppus of blink-182. "We had a blast kicking off the tour ten years ago, and this summer we'll be taking it to the next level with our friends My Chemical Romance." "We are looking forward to heading out on the road this summer with blink-182," said Gerard Way of My Chemical Romance. "The line-up for the Honda Civic Tour over the last decade has featured some great bands, and we're excited to be a part of it."
Continuing a Honda Civic Tour tradition, Honda will present fans with an opportunity to check out one-of-a-kind vehicles that have been customized and autographed by the headlining bands.
Redesigned for the 2012 model year, the Civic lineup features six distinct models: the conventional gasoline-powered Civic Sedan and Civic Coupe, two high-performance Civic Si models, a gasoline-electric Civic Hybrid, a Civic Natural Gas and an all-new Civic HF high fuel economy model. For 2012, all existing Civic models achieve higher EPA fuel-economy ratings1 compared to the 2011 models, up by as much as 8 percent on the highway in Civic Sedans and Coupes equipped with automatic transmissions. The Civic Hybrid achieves an EPA-estimated fuel economy rating of 44 mpg city, 44 mpg highway and 44 mpg city/highway combined, making it the most fuel-efficient compact sedan currently available in the U.S. Additionally, the all-new Civic HF model debuts as a value-oriented, high fuel-economy sedan with an EPA-estimated highway fuel economy rating of 41 mpg, the highest highway rating for a conventional, gasoline-powered vehicle with an automatic transmission.
