    no I was just curious, I can´t find anything on the matter on the net. just wanted to check if anyone had seen it somewhere?
    I found that 92-95civics had 0,31cd but can´t find anything on any other civic?

    you probably can't find it because it completely doesn't matter.

    :withstupid: Sans that 200+ mph civic in Honda Tuner years back, you never really get a civic fast enough to matter about the drag coefficient.

    I am not worried about not going fast enough. I don´t even own a civic, I have a euro accord type-S 06.
    I was just thinking about this the other day and decided to check it out.
    I like to read up on and know just about everything about hondas:)

    drag coeffient does matter at normal speeds, hints why the honda insight that will probally never see speeds over 115mph has the lowest DC of any production car ever produced. For the RSX, when the factory performance kit from acura (lowering springs, front air dam, body kit, and spoiler) the car tops out 2-3mph faster (reported in car and driver I think when the kit was released) Also why I get 1 mpg better when I tuck my mirrors in on long country-road drives.

    cd for coefficient of drag? on civic its 0.32 from what I've read; I also saw, 2003 hybrid/electric is 0.28
    cda - coefficient of drag with area is also now used.
