The vehicle’s CO2 emissions are unrivalled at just at 93g/km**. This figure represents a 1g/km drop compared to the previous 1.6 i-DTEC engine, which was tested under NEDC. Furthermore, with a BIK rate of just 20%, the Civic Diesel has also helped to spearhead Honda’s growth within the user-chooser market,
