The new Honda Civic will benefit from a revised 1.6-litre i-DTEC diesel engine from March 2018.
The new 120 PS 1.6 litre i-DTEC promises up to 76.3 mpg and CO2 emissions of 99 g/km under the new Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP) which is based on using real driving data gathered from around the world rather than the NEDC system which was laboratory based.
The Civic’s 1.6-litre i-DTEC engine deliveries 120PS @ 3000 rpm and 300 Nm of torque @ 2,000 rpm which equates to 0 – 62 mph in 10.4 seconds.
The engine will be assembled along side the Civic at Honda’s Swindon plant here in the UK.
Honda will also be adding a 9-speed automatic transmission to the Civic’s powertrain availability.Published 17 August 2017
