Honda used this year’s Paris Motor Show to introduce a new diesel engine on its Civic hatchback. It’s the already known 1.6 litres i-DTEC engine, ready to go on sale in January 2013.
Developed exclusively for Europe and built alongside the Civic hatch itself at Honda’s factory in Swindon, the new diesel engine offers 120 horsepower ar 4000 rpm and a maximum torque of 300 Nm at 2000 rpm.
Driving the front wheels through a manual gearbox, the diesel engine can help Civic hatchback to reach an average consumption of just 3.6 litres/100 km and emission of 96 g/km.
Honda announced pricing for the 1.6 i-DTEC Civic that starts from £19,400 (equal to US$31,100 or €24,200) for the base SE model, rising to £20,595 for the ES and £23,175 for the top-of-the-range EX.
The trim will be the same as the one found on the 2.2 litre i-DTEC version. In addition, the clients will get some new 16 inch wheels.
