Visitors at the Frankfurt Motor Show will get a chance to see the production version of the new Honda Civic, which will be revealed in September.
This version will be the ninth generation of the Honda Civic and Honda’s technology is at the forefront of the car’s development. The latest version will have a 2.2 litre diesel engine that only emits 110g/km of CO2 but is more powerful – producing 148bhp.
The new Civic CO2 emissions are over 20% (29g/km) lower than the current model. At 110g/km customers won’t need to pay for road tax in the first year and then at current rates will only have to pay £20 per annum from then on.
The new Civic features Idle Stop (start/stop) technology, which is one of the features that have helped to reduce the CO2 emissions.
Head of development at Honda for the new engine: Katushi Watanabe, said “ To achieve a good CO2 figure, you need to optimise every aspect of the car. Reducing the emissions was our key target and we’re proud to say we have achieved this without compromising the high performance character of the engine.
The new model isn’t due on sale in the UK until next year, so if you’re in the market you’ve got a few months to get saving.
