Even if it’s quite a fresh car, unveiled just two years ago, the current generation Honda Civic received an update. This new improvements will help Civic to gain more clients in Europe and UK.
The 2020 Honda Civic adds a new lower front grille around the fog lights, with smoothed surfaces and sleek styling blades. A simpler grille beam configuration and new air-intake design give the front profile a cleaner, more aerodynamic design.
Upgrades to the Civic’s face also include full LED headlight clusters, and redesigned LED daytime running lights that follow the dynamic lines of the styling blades. New 16-inch alloy wheels are available for the entry-level model, while mid- and top-range models can be styled with sporty Shark Grey 17-inch alloys for customers wanting a more dramatic look.
Adding to the range of existing colour options, the Civic will also be available in a stand-out new paint finish, Obsidian Blue.
Honda has enhanced usability by adding physical buttons and dials for the infotainment and climate controls, in response to customer demand.
The Civic retains its range of highly-efficient and powerful engines, with CVT or six-speed manual transmissions. The 1.0 litre VTEC Turbo unit, with 126 PS and 200 Nm of torque, achieves NEDC CO2 emissions from 107 g/km for the CVT-equipped model, and WLTP fuel economy from 49.6 mpg. The larger 1.5 litre VTEC Turbo petrol option produces 182 PS and 240 Nm of torque, with emissions from 128 g/km for the six-speed manual model and combined fuel economy of 46.3 mpg.
Honda’s recently revised 1.6 litre i-DTEC diesel engine offers 120 PS and torque of 300 Nm, combined with emissions of 90 g/km when equipped with the six-speed manual transmission, and fuel economy of 62.8 mpg.
The passive safety features of the Civic are complemented by Honda SENSING active safety and driver assist technologies, installed on all grades.
