Honda reveals the beautiful all-new Civic e:HEV
Honda has unveiled the all-new Civic e:HEV, the 11th generation of this iconic model.
Featuring Honda's proven e:HEV 'Full Hybrid' technology as standard, the all-new Civic completes Honda's mission to electrify its range by the end of 2022.
The new Civic features a sleek and sporty silhouette. The lengthened wheelbase and increased glass area have created a light and airy interior with more space and usability than ever before. The interior also benefits from tactile, high-quality materials throughout.
Key to your enjoyment of the new Civic has been the reduction of noise, creating a tranquil, calming cabin environment.
Advanced and efficient - the e:HEV full hybrid powertrain
Honda's proven e:HEV (Hybrid Electric Vehicle) technology is standard on the new Civic, with a new 72-cell lithium-ion battery and two compact, yet powerful electric motors paired with a newly developed 2.0-litre direct-injection, Atkinson-cycle engine. This combination delivers a maximum 135kW and 315Nm of torque.
The new Civic shifts seamlessly between EV (Electric Vehicle), Hybrid and Engine drive modes with no input from the driver. The driver can choose between four driving modes - Eco, Normal, Sport, as well as a new Individual mode, allowing separate control of the engine, transmission and cluster gauge display.
The all-new Civic is targeted to achieve CO2 emissions of less than 110 grams per km which is less than 5 l/100km in WLTP testing.
The new Civic also features Honda's expanded SENSING suite of advanced safety features and driver aids. A new 100-degree front wide-view camera and enhanced recognition technology improve the ability to identify pedestrians, road lines, boundaries, and other vehicles including motorcycles and cyclists.
For the first time, the Civic is equipped with sonar sensors - four at the front and four at the rear. In addition to improved Collision Mitigation Braking System, Lane Keep Assist and i-ACC technology, Low Speed Braking Control, Blind Spot Information, Cross Traffic Monitor and Traffic Jam Assist are all new additions to the Civic's comprehensive active safety features.
In addition to the new active safety technology, new structural components have also been incorporated to meet Euro NCAP's stringent safety standards, these include: additional door beams that improve side collision performance; front bumper beam safety plates that absorb impact energy to reduce leg and knee damage; a total of 11 airbags including side airbags for the rear seats; knee airbags for the front seats to reduce occupant injury during front impact; and a front centre airbag for the driver seat to prevent a collision between the driver and front passenger during side impact.
Infotainment with Apple Car Play and Android Auto
The size of the central touchscreen has been increased to nine inches and has been moved upwards to minimise up-and-down eye movement. The infotainment system comes complete with wireless Apple CarPlay, as well as Android Auto compatibility to keep you connected whilst on the move. The Advance grade benefits from a 10.2-inch HD colour LCD panel.
The Elegance and Sport grades feature an eight speaker audio system, whilst the Advance grade features 12 premium BOSE speakers for a concert-like audio experience.
The all-new Civic builds on the success of previous generations and promises to set new class benchmarks when it arrives in showrooms from Autumn 2022.
