The new tenth generation Honda Civic will arrive in UK showrooms this March, with prices starting from £18,235.
Honda has embraced turbocharging for the new Civic, and it will initially be offered with a choice of two turbo petrol engines – both still with VTEC.
The first, a 1.0-litre three-cylinder unit, develops 129PS at 5,500rpm and 200Nm of torque at 2,250rpm.
A version specially tuned for use with the optional continuously variable transmission (CVT) spreads reduced torque of 180Nm across a wider range of 1,700rpm to 4,500rpm.
A larger 1.5-litre turbo four-cylinder unit outputs a more interesting 182PS at 5,500rpm and 240Nm available from 1,900rpm to 5,000rpm.
Performance and economy figures have not yet been released, but the company did reveal that CO2 emissions would start from 110 g/km for the entry-level 1.0-litre model, while the 1.5 emits 133 – 139 g/km depending on trim level and wheel sizes.
The new Civic will be offered in S, SE, SR and EX guises for the 1.0-litre model, while the 1.5 brings with it a choice of either Sport, Sport Plus or Prestige grades.
CAP also announced the new Civic is expected to retain up to 37% of its value after three years and 60,000 miles – a 9% improvement over the outgoing model, according to Honda.
The new Honda Civic goes on sale from late March.
