Another Reason to Consider the Honda Civic
Consider switching to a new 2012 Honda Civic or 2012 Honda CR-Z if one of your goals is to lead a healthier lifestyle. The Honda Civic is the least toxic of 200 new 2011-2012 new models just tested by the Ecology Center. Drivers should be concerned about the toxicity levels of cars because it comes from chemicals inside vehicles; and studies show a wide range of health risks associated with them, which vary depending on type and saturation.
Interestingly, strong new-car smell is a good indicator that a vehicle has higher toxicity levels.
Jeff Gearhart, research at the Ecology Center explains the lesser known fact. "What [many] people don't realize is the new-car smell is actually the smell of chemicals," he says. "These are the chemicals that are in...plastics, adhesives and fabrics."1
Perhaps you've taken an Outlander Sport, 200 SC or Soul for a test drive and marveled at how intoxicating their new-car smell is compared to the new Honda Civic or CR-Z. It's because while the Civic and CR-Z came in as the top-three most healthy cars, the prior three ranked as the three most toxic vehicles on the market.
