The Honda Civic Tourer 1.6-litre i-DTEC has reinforced its status as one of the best in the class by claiming the Best Real MPG Performer title from the 2015 Honest John Awards.
It is the first time the award has been given out by Honest John and proves that today’s buyers are focusing more on fuel economy and running costs when shopping for their next car. The vehicle’s success follows its triumph at last year’s MPG Marathon event where it achieved 97.92mpg during a two day test, surpassing the official quoted figure of 74.3mpg combined.
On the estate’s award, HonestJohn.co.uk editor Dan Harrison commented: “When it comes to real world fuel economy, no other car comes close to the British-built Honda Civic Tourer 1.6 i-DTEC.
Practical and spacious, the estate version of the Civic is a winner when it comes to fuel efficiency, with the diesel surpassing all of its rivals. According to Real MPG submissions for the past 12 months, the Civic Tourer diesel achieves an impressive 93 percent of its official economy rating, with a real world average of 68mpg.”
A streamlined shape and advanced efficiency technology also help the Civic Tourer to be a top performer for fuel economy. ECON mode comes as standard across the range, and adjusts the car’s output at the push of a button to save even more fuel.
