The bold new Honda Civic will land in showrooms across the country this June.  The all new 10th generation Civic has been totally re-designed with a revolutionary silhouette, athletic new stance and advanced aerodynamic styling that advances one of Honda’s most loved nameplates into a new era.

“This new Civic for us is a game-changer,” said Honda Australia Director, Mr. Stephen Collins.  “It is the most important model in our history in Australia and we’re confident the customers who have been looking for the original sporty DNA that Honda was known for are going to find it in this new Civic.”

Over four years of local research has gone into the new Civic with input from Australian dealers and Honda staff on what elements of the car needed to be incorporated for the local market.

The bold new Civic will have available in the range two different drivetrains – a brand new 1.5-litre turbo petrol engine as well as an improved 1.8 litre normally aspirated petrol engine.

The all new 1.5 litre turbo delivers 127kw at 5500rpm and 220Nm of torque at 1700-5500rpm and is fitted with a new Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) it epitomises Honda’s fun-to-drive nature. The powertrain has been developed under Honda’s exclusive Earth Dreams Technology and will deliver powerful performance with exceptional fuel efficiency.

The 1.8-litre engine will deliver 104kw at 6500rpm and 174Nm of torque at 4300rpm.  This engine is also combined with a CVT also built on Earth Dreams Technology.

Five variants will be available in the range and a new RS grade has been added for the first time. The RS grade is the style statement of the line-up with an integrated body kit with a striking black grille, LED headlights, LED front foglights, sunroof and RS badging.

The Civic Sedan is the first in a three-phase Civic launch with the Hatch arriving first half of 2017 and the highly-anticipated Type R expected in the last half of 2017.

Further details will be revealed closer to launch.

Honda Civic Prototype Unveiled At Geneva Motor Show… The all-new Honda Civic Hatch prototype has made its global premiere at the 86th Geneva International Motor Show ahead of its European launch in April 2017.

The prototype, unveiled exclusively at one of the world’s most highly-regarded motor shows, reveals a sporty and dynamic new Civic design that reinvents conventional compact styling.

“This tenth-generation Civic Hatch is the sportiest remake of the Civic ever,” said Honda Australia Director, Mr. Stephen Collins.

“This is an exciting new chapter for a much loved Honda nameplate. We have a three-phase launch plan in Australia that will put Civic back on the shopping list of small car buyers.  The all-new sedan will arrive mid this year and then Hatch will follow, and then Type R.  We aren’t able to confirm exact timing for the Hatch or Type R as yet, but these variants will play an important role in the success of this model” said Mr. Collins.

The all-new Civic Hatch will be wider, lower and longer than the current generation. New larger and wider wheels and tyres give a feeling of an assured stance, while the long wheelbase, short overhangs and sleek cabin area further add to the dynamic feel of the exterior.

At the front of the car, a short overhang with large air intakes presents a sharp and aggressive interpretation of Honda’s family face. LED headlights and daytime running lights flow from beneath the boldly sculpted bonnet into accentuated wheel arches.

The sleek and swept-back body lines continue along the side of the car with a swage line that incorporates front and rear door handles before culminating in the distinctive C-shaped LED rear lights. A second, lower character line extends from behind the front wheels up through the doors and meets the rear wheel arches, emphasising the car’s dynamic forward-leaning stance. At the rear, the bumper incorporates angular creases and vents, designed to echo the aggressively styled nature of the rest of the car.

Daisuke Tsutamori, Project Leader for the 10th generation Civic provided an insight into how the distinctive design was conceived and realised: “We knew that we needed to create a striking and stand-out exterior design that challenged conventional European compact styling while staying true to the original Civic’s core values; a marriage of distinctive and sporty design, rewarding driving dynamics and versatile practicality.”
