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.

    Honda couldn’t design a coat hanger these days ….

    • Strongly disagree. Look at their wonderful F1 engines.

    It looks nice,but I’m surprised that they don’t offer 1.5 petrol in GB. In my country (Slovakia), we have only 1.5 with sedan. Which is annoying, because it looks more subtle than hatchback, but the price difference from 1.0 hatchback is quite big.

      They do offer the 1.5 petrol in the UK on the hatchback, strange how they’re not putting it into the saloon.

  • And actually the first time since the year 2000 that a four-door Civic has been offered to British customers, with the exception of the Hybrid models. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/3d673e1030072796cb0d15c26d16d423c5d496a7ab6149cfdf6267c2f7e782e6.jpg https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/08a5b6e90efad46b3efe5ee761485c36e5b4d64004a01cffaefe4f70ff4c64f5.jpg

  • Gives the pensioners here something to drive I guess…

    • ctse

      Nah they’d stick to their Jazzes.

    It’s surprising that they didn’t offer 1.5 with 182 HP as Sport or RS trim (which used in Civic Sedan that being sold in Turkey) and atmospheric 1.6 engine

      The reason is probably UK tax system for cars, where less CO2 per km is favored… For company car buyers 1.0 petrol would make sense with less emissions, Honda knows their market with this one…

    Ew.

    can someone please tell honda that the new civic is very ugly.
    the back is so ugly that i can’t look at this car

    Don’t believe it. Honda are struggling in the UK and introducing a small saloon won’t help at all.
