Honda Civic: The Stretch Of A Bestseller
The tenth generation of the Honda Civic will incorporate from March of next year a diesel engine to the two petrol engines currently available. The new i-DTEC with 1.6 liters and 120 horses will be presented at the Frankfurt Motor Show from 14 to 24 September and will be available exclusively for the European market.
Efficiency has been one of the objectives of the Japanese label when launching its new bet. Thus, the manufacturer has introduced significant improvements, resulting in an approved fuel consumption of 3.7 liters / 100 km and CO2 emissions of 99 g / km.
The 1.6 i-DTEC generates 88kW (120 hp) at 4,000 rpm and 300 Nm of torque at 2,000 rpm, allowing the Civic to pass from 0 to 100 km / h in 10.4 seconds. In addition, the weight reduction and the increase of the rigidity of the propeller in this new design has allowed to better control the noise and the vibrations.
The new propeller, to be assembled at the Swindon factory in the UK, will be available in both the four- and five-door versions and will optionally feature a nine-speed automatic transmission.
It adds to the two petrol options offered by the Civic 2017: 1.0 Vtec Turbo and 129 CV, in manual and automatic (CVT), and 1.5 Vtec Turbo with 182 hp, also with manual transmission and CVT.
