Honda has unveiled the all-new 1.4 i-VTEC Civic Sport which becomes the latest variant of the popular British-built Civic range. The new addition to the Civic family will also become its entry level model when it hits showrooms next month.
The new Civic Sport comprises of a 1.4-litre petrol engine, manual transmission, 17 inch alloy wheels and a unique colour-coded rear spoiler. Additionally, the new Civic Sport shares resemblances with some of the iconic characteristics of the Civic Type R, such as a lower grille mesh and black roof lining.
The advanced 1.4-litre i-VTEC single overhead camshaft (SOHC) engine is designed to boost both its dynamic performance and its environmental credentials. The new Civic Sport emits 131 g/km of CO2, while the engine delivers a maximum power output of 100 PS and a torque figure of 127 Nm.
Following the recent unveiling of the next generation Civic concept at the Geneva Motor Show in March, due in showrooms at the start of 2017, Honda UK is revising the current Civic family line up in response to customer demand. The new Civic Sport will become the entry level with the SE and SR grades completing the line-up.
Philip Crossman, Managing Director at Honda UK, stated: “The addition of the 1.4-litre petrol engine version of the Sport strengthens our Civic family line up and makes the more aggressively styled version of our popular family hatchback more accessible.
“The smaller engine makes the Civic Sport more economical and more efficient and therefore a much more attractive proposition.”
The new 1.4 i-VTEC Civic Sport is priced at £18,360 OTR or £199 a month on a three year PCP deal with 5.9% APR and a deposit of £3,415 and will be available in Honda showrooms from May.
