Honda Civic Saloon Becomes Available In The UK For The First Time

Honda announced the availability of the four-door sedan Civic with both petrol and diesel powertrains in the UK for the first time since the current generation’s launch.

Petrol models will be powered by Honda’s turbocharged 1.0-liter i-VTEC unit, which is also available in the Hatchback model, offered with either a manual or a CVT transmission. The diesel variant of the Civic Saloon will use the 1.6-liter i-DTEC unit, paired to a standard manual or an optional nine-speed automatic transmission.

Just like the hatchback, the Honda Civic Saloon, which is built in Turkey, is now wider, longer and lower than any of its predecessors, featuring a short front overhang and sharply designed bodywork. The interior offers class-leading space according to Honda, as well as exceptional refinement.

The driving position is mounted lower in a bid to give the driver a greater feeling of connection with the car, thus boosting the sporting character of the popular Japanese model.

“The Civic is a core model for Honda in Europe and has been at the heart of the brand’s strong sales and manufacturing heritage, with the hatchback built in Swindon”, said Phil Webb, head of car at Honda UK. “The arrival of the saloon to the UK market compliments the Civic family and will be a great addition to our showrooms alongside what is already a very successful range for Honda.”

Honda UK will announce pricing and other technical details closer to launch, which will take place in August.
