Honda Civic saloon to bring sub-£20k pricing and 91g/km
Honda has confirmed pricing, specifications and CO2 emissions for its new four-door Civic, which goes on sale next month.
Joining its hatchback sibling some seven years since the Civic saloon was last sold over here, the four-door model is said to bring “unrivalled” space and practicality for drivers.
Prices will start from £19,395 for the entry-level SE petrol model, rising to £27,120 OTR for a top-spec EX diesel automatic while Honda says it’s also providing highly competitive PCP offers from £259 a month.
Built in Turkey – in contrast to the British-built hatchback – the saloon will be offered with the 127bhp1.0 i-VTEC available on the Civic hatchback since launch with either manual or CVT transmissions. It also gets the 1.6 i-DTEC diesel powertrain that launched earlier this year in the hatchback. This will come with the same manual transmission or a new nine-speed automatic.
Emissions start from 91g/km CO2 for the 1.6 i-DTEC manual, which will deliver up to 83.1mpg, while the diesel automatic will deliver up to 68.9mpg and emits 108g/km CO2.
The petrol version brings 107g/km CO2 for the CVT and 60.1mpg official combined –claimed to make the Civic four-door one of the cleanest saloons in its class – while the manual petrol emits 110g/km CO2 and 58.9mpg.
Trim levels will mirror those of the existing hatchback model with SE, SR and EX trims available. Entry-level SE grade comes with the Honda ‘Sensing’ suite of safety features, collision mitigation braking system, forward collision warning, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, road departure mitigation, adaptive cruise control and traffic sign recognition. The petrol CVT and diesel automatic both come with low speed following.
SR grade adds rain sensing auto wipers, dual climate control air conditioning, parking sensors and Honda CONNECT (Apple CarPlay and Android Auto) and a rear parking camera. The EX trim further includes leather seats, smart entry and start, LED headlights with washers, LED fog lights, wireless phone charging and heated rear seats.
“The arrival of the four-door variant now completes the line-up for the Civic family in the UK,” commented Phil Webb, head of car at Honda UK. “With the hatchback and the four-door now available, we have a strong Civic range whether it’s a corporate or retail customer looking for a car.”For more of the latest industry news, click here.
