As you might have known that the all-new 2012 Honda Civic 5-door hatchback was unveiled at 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show in Germany from an article in our previous post.
The 9thgeneration of Honda Civic 5-door hatchback will launch in early next year and produced exclusively at Honda’s Swindon factory in the UK. Regrettably, this model will be available in Europe only.
The new 2012 Honda Civic Euro was available with a choice of three engines. This includes a 100HP 1.4-litre petrol, a 142HP 1.8-litre petrol, and a 150HP 2.2-litre turbo diesel.
On the other hand, Honda is planning to launch an even more economical and environmentally friendly engine in the form of a smaller displacement diesel engine.
“By the end of 2012, we will add a newly developed smaller diesel engine to the Civic range,” stated Honda Motor President and CEO, Takanobu Ito, during the Frankfurt Motor Show presentation. “Designed specifically for the European market, the new engine will further reduce CO2 emissions,” he added.
