Honda's new diesel engined Civic
2nd November 2012
An exciting new chapter in the history of Honda diesels has begun with the arrival of the brand’s hotly anticipated 1.6-litre i-DTEC engine. This is the first engine to be launched in Europe under Honda’s flagship Earth Dreams Technology environmental programme and will offer customers an outstanding balance of high fuel economy, low emissions and exciting performance.
The new engine makes its debut in the British built Civic which will be arriving in dealerships from early next year, priced from just £19,400 and will also be making its way into the new CR-V SUV later in 2013.
The all-new powerplant has been developed exclusively for Europe, and tested extensively on a variety of roads across the continent. As with the Civic itself, the engine has been built at Honda’s state-of-the-art factory in Swindon.
