The new Civic is 20mm lower and 10mm wider than the outgoing model, with a styling that further highlights the sporty and futuristic elegance and an overall design full of practicality.
The Civic's new functional cockpit has two control zones, which separate the control areas known as the Information Interface zone and the Driver Interface zone. The Driving Interface zone gathers essential information at the natural point of focus; and an Information Interface zone is positioned closer to the centre of the dash.
The Civic's 1.8 i-VTEC (Variable-Valve Timing and lift Electronic Control) gives you the ideal balance between fuel economy and driving performance. At high rpm, the VTEC mechanism opens all valves wide so the engine can rapidly intake, burn, and exhaust a large fuel/air charge for high power output. These two complimentary combustion environments create unparalleled high performance throughout a wide rpm band. The new Civic is also available as a 2.2 turbo diesel.
Safety has always been our first priority. The Civic 5-door's safety armoury include front and rear disc brakes, ABS (Anti-lock Braking System), BAS (Emergency Brake Assist), EBD (Electronic Brake-force Distribution), Hill start assist and VSA (Vehicle Stability Assist), which helps the driver to maintain control in slippery conditions or during hard acceleration.
