Honda UK has announced pricing for the anticipated new diesel Civic manual hatchback.
Set to hit retail forecourts next month and with the automatic available in early summer, the entry-level S model with manual transmission will start from £20,120 OTR rising to £24,925 OTR for an EX trim car with the six speed manual gearbox.
Trim levels will mirror those of the existing 1.0 VTEC Turbo petrol model with S, SE, SR and EX trims available. The EX trim is also available with an optional Tech Pack for £600 which adds LED headlights with washers, LED fog lights, wireless phone charging and heated rear seats.
PCP pricing has also been confirmed for the new car, which is built at Honda’s UK manufacturing plant in Swindon; with monthly payments starting at £249 a month on a three year 5.9% APR contract for a Civic 1.6 i-DTEC SE Manual.
The comprehensively revised 1.6 i-DTEC engine will deliver an outstanding combination of performance and efficiency. It produces 120 PS at 4,000 rpm and 300 Nm of torque at 2,000 rpm.
Refinement and longevity has been bettered even further thanks to a revised engine block casting featuring more ribs to reduce noise. Fuel efficiency and Co2 output are also improved upon thanks to a new low friction bore manufacturing process with upgraded pistons.
“The arrival of the diesel variant completes the line-up for the Civic hatchback in the UK,” commented Phil Webb, Head of Car at Honda UK. “This 1.6 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.”
Pricing for the automatic Civic diesel will follow in the summer when the car becomes available. Manual versions are available in dealers from February with automatic models coming in early summer.
