Order The New Honda Civic Diesel From £20,120 In Britain

Joining the rest of the Civic range in the United Kingdom is the new diesel model, which will arrive at dealers nationwide next month.

Pricing for the diesel starts at £20,120 ($27,620), in the new entry-level ‘S’ grade (with 6-speed manual), but consumers will be able to specify it in the SE, SR, and EX trim levels as well, like they would the 1.0-liter three-cylinder petrol model.

The EX starts from £24,925 ($34,216) and can be had with an optional Tech Pack, for £600 ($824), which adds a few amenities such as the LED headlights with washers, LED fog lamps, heated rear seats, and wireless phone charging.

“The arrival of the diesel variant completes the lineup for the Civic hatchback in the UK. This 1.6-liter i-DTEC is the most technologically advanced diesel unit we have launched to market, and will deliver a very competitive offering for both the retail customer and the fleet market”, commented Honda UK’s chief, Phil Webb.

This version of the Honda Civic uses a 1.6-liter unit that delivers 120PS (118hp) and 300Nm (221lb-ft) of torque to the front wheels through a six-speed manual transmission. It takes 10.4sec to reach 100km/h (62mph) from a standstill, and promises to return 76.3 UK mpg (3.7 l/100 km / 63.6 US mpg), while releasing just 99 g/km of CO2 into the atmosphere.

If you would rather have an automatic transmission paired with the Civic diesel’s engine, then you need to wait until early summer, when Honda will launch it across Britain.
