In its 11th generation, the Civic e:HEV launched as part of the vehicle's 50th year anniversary celebrations. The Civic e:HEV is a dynamic, self-charging, full hybrid hatchback that has evolved in both comfort and drivability and continues to champion a sporty design with a new dynamic, electrified powertrain.
The Type R followed suit and was launched in its 25th anniversary year. In its sixth generation, the car has been refined and engineered to deliver the most exhilarating Civic Type R performance to date.
The Auto Express New Car Awards highlight the best in class in 25 categories. For the past 12 months, Auto Express' expert panel have been testing all the new cars available to buy in the UK and taking into consideration the way owners use them and need them to perform in order to crown their winners.
Steve Fowler, Editor-in-Chief at Auto Express commented “The Civic's double win just shows the breadth of talent the car has, covering so many bases. We've been super-impressed by the hatch with its ability to blend efficiency with comfort, space and quality - it's a great family all-rounder. And much of that applies to the Type R, but with the fun factor turned up to the max. It's an astonishingly good car to drive, with the sort of pace that used to be the preserve of supercars. Few cars at any price have made us smile quite so much as the Civic Type R this year.”
