Honda’s New Civic Diesel Wants Some Attention Too In Frankfurt

Honda brought along its new generation Civic diesel to the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show.

Naturally, it doesn’t really stand out next to its sonorous sibling, the Civic Type R, but the new Honda Civic diesel promises to get the job done, despite the bad reputation that oil burners have received lately in the Old Continent and elsewhere, no thanks to the emissions scandal.

Powering it is a 1.6-liter engine, built specifically with the European market in mind, in Swindon, England, which delivers 120hp and 300Nm (221lb-ft) of torque to the front wheels. It won’t break any speed records, as it needs 10.4sec for the 0-100km/h (62mph) acceleration, but it returns 3.7 l/100 km (76.3 UK mpg / 63.6 US mpg), and emits just 99 g/km of CO2.

Honda has yet to detail the market availability of their new diesel unit, but it will be offered on the four- and five-door versions of the compact car, in the United Kingdom at least, from March, 2018. Moreover, the powertrain will be married to a 9-speed automatic gearbox as well, starting next summer.
