2013 Honda civic HF

What is the difference between a CIVIC HF and a standard model such as a civic lx?

“The Civic HF’s quest for frugality is carried out by a few simple and relatively low-tech enhancements. The short list includes a set of wind-cheating 15-inch aluminum wheels, an aerodynamically efficient rear decklid spoiler, some additional under-body covers—the same pieces as found on Civic hybrid—and a set of low-rolling-resistance tires. To save a few pounds, the spare tire has been tossed overboard in favor of an aerosol tire-repair kit and Honda’s 24-hour assistance. Road-ready, our Civic HF tipped the scales at 2713 pounds, a full 163 less than the 2876-pound 2013 EX-L we tested previously, and 158 less than the 2013 Civic hybrid—that’s the equivalent of a major Costco haul or a freshman footballer.”
