Honda pulled the wraps off a new diesel variant of the Civic model in the UK. The new version is powered by a 1.6-liter i-DTEC engine and will be the most frugal offering of the Japanese car maker.
The new turbocharged diesel unit is capable to deliver 118 horsepower at 4,000 rpm and 300Nm of torque at 2,000 rpm.
Thanks to Honda’s efforts to improve the economy and cut the emissions, the new Honda Civic returns a fuel consumption of 78,5mpg UK or 3,6 liters/100km.
The CO2 emissions are also kept under the 100 g/km limit, namely 94 g/km. The new 1.6-liter four-cylinder unit is designed for the European market being built at the company’s facility in Swindon, UK.
Buyers will be able to order the new Civic starting January with pricing set at £19,400. At this money you will get the entry-level SE version while the range-topping EX variant starts at £23,175.
