Honda Civic 2012

New teaser of the new generation Civic.

Japanese carmaker Honda released an image of the new generation Civic, which will be officially presented on September 13 in the spotlight of the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show.

The European version of the Civic, whose tail reveals image will be available only in five-door configuration.

Model, as we know, has been developed by engineers involved in the creation of the Formula 1 cars, the main objective was to achieve exceptional aerodynamics.

One of the elements used by engineers to optimize aerodynamics, brake light is back, played the role of spoiler.

Interesting and useful design ideas we’ve seen in this generation of the Civic, will be alien and next-generation car. She apparently also a design that one would deny completely, while others will simply love.

Honda Civic is available in the car market for a long time. The first generation model was launched in 1972. The model of 1983 is known as the “Wonder Civic”, and since 1995 as the “Miracle Civic”, diamonds get to “Revolution Civic”, launched in 2006, which has much greater performance than previous, more boring version .

With the new model, the Japanese automaker can boldly stand against rivals such as Ford Focus, Volkswagen Golf and even the Vauxhall Astra. Honda Civic Hatchback is available in four versions: SE, ES, EX and EX GT. The proposed standard is reasonable. Entry level SE models offer climate control in the car, 16-inch alloy wheels, USB port, automatic wipers and four-speaker audio system.

Models with ES equipment receive cruise control, Bluetooth, dual-zone climate control, rear parking camera, alarm, front fog lights (halogen), electric folding mirrors, leather steering wheel, rear armrest, ambient lighting, six-speaker audio system and aluminum pedals.

EX models include additions such as leather upholstery, heated front seats, satellite navigation with optional automatic message traffic and steady audio upgrade. EX GT specification adds a panoramic sunroof, front and rear parking sensors (Parktronic), 17-inch alloy wheels, bi-xenon headlights and electrically adjustable driver’s seat.

Early Honda Civic Hatchback, will be available with three engines, including 1.4-liter and 1.8-liter petrol and 2.2-liter diesel engine. Later, the car can be ordered with a 1.6-liter diesel engine that will undoubtedly be the star of the market. Entry level new Civic 1.4-liter gasoline engine powered by 99 horsepower, goes from 0 to 100 km in 13.4 seconds.

This modification of the model developed 187 km / h, but until they reach the driver will experience a pleasure. 1.8-liter engine with 140 horsepower. This is a proposal rivaling the range of Volkswagen Golf and Ford Focus. This model accelerates from 0 to 100 in 9.1 seconds laudable if the car has a six-speed manual gearbox.

Here is the maximum speed 210 km / h, but the difficulties to reach this speed found with this engine. So, the 2.2-liter engine powered by a 148 horsepower is the best option if you’re into extreme driving. It has a typical pull due to low torque. This modification is great to drive both in urban and in rural conditions.

With a 2.2-liter engine, you can reach a top speed of 218 km / h from zero to one hundred km / h speed is reached in 8.5 seconds. Previous generation Civic is decent, but not quite class-leading. Automaker Honda has made many improvements to the traction of the new model. Level is equal to that of the Vauxhall Astra.

Although the suspension is improved, opponents feel more stable while driving. The steering is quick and responsive, although it does not feel very sensitive. Braking system is robust and progressive. Gear shifting is smooth. The seats of the Honda Civic Hatchback, offer plenty of back support, but would expect a little more lateral support to support you more in sharp turns.

The suspension is firm, but consistent in quality ride, Civic ranks forefront. Engine noise is well controlled, especially in 1.8-liter petrol model, but there are some areas within the BMW diesels where things get a little intrusive. Wind noise is almost undetectable, but a rough road surfaces are expected some noise from the road.

The driving force of the Civic is the space in the car. When you lower the rear of the Civic, it can carry up to 1,342 liters luggage. This makes the car extremely practical. The new Civic is available with five doors and although there is enough legroom for adults tall people are seated in the rear, they may experience a little discomfort considering the height limit back.

Glove compartment of the car is reasonable. The basic models are offered with rear spoiler, which is a compromise visibility back.

Satellite navigation is easy to use, although the stereo controls is logical and well laid out. There is logic in the layout of the dashboard, but still it’s a little confusing. The vehicle’s speedometer is digital.

Ecological indicators and other displays on the dashboard is a little more complicated and confusing. Of course, you’ll get used to it, but other manufacturers reflection on this type of design. The car has adaptive cruise control, which can mitigate the consequences of a collision by activating the brakes automatically if the system considers that a collision is imminent.

Honda also includes a system to protect pedestrians. Dual front and side airbags are standard on all models, including side curtain airbags. ISOFIX seats are available for two children. Devices are located in the right and left seat. The car has not passed a crash test by Euro NCAP, but we expect to perform as well or even better than the previous model car that achieved four stars in crash tests. Four stars for child protection and three stars for pedestrian safety.
