Honda has released a full information about the new 2012 Civic 5-door Euro-spec. The car is created with only one purpose – to get you from point A to point B safely and cheaply without any difficulties.

2012 Civic features new lower and wider aerodynamic monoform profile with perfect drag coefficient. The front has a unique look as well as the wide aero management rear combination lamp. There are a lot of changes and many new body colours for the exterior.

The interior boasts a new functional cockpit layout with two control interface zones, a full-colour i-MID TFT screen incorporating an Eco driving support function, audio display and user support. There is also a premium sound system with 90W Subwoofers and 25mm AL dome tweeters available as an option. The steering wheel features new design with easy operating controls finished in extra-smooth leather. Blue interior door lining illumination is also available.

The luggage space is superb – 401 litres.

The engine range includes a 1.4-liter i-VTEC with 100PS (73 kW) and 127Nm (94 lb-ft). 0 to 100 km/h in 13.4 seconds and a top speed of 187 km/h (116 mph). The impressive about it is the fuel consumption – 52.3 mpg, which is only 5.4 litres per 100 km with CO2 emissions of 129 g/km.

The bigger 1.8 liter i-VTEC has 142PS (104 kW) and 174Nm (128 lb-ft). The performance is satisfying – 0 to 100 km/h in 9.1 seconds and a top speed of 215 km/h (134 mph). It needs only 5.8 litres per 100 km on combined cycle – 48.7 mpg with CO2 emissions of 137 g/km.

There is also a diesel – 2.2 liter i-DTEC with 150 PS (110 kW) and 350Nm (258 lb-ft). It is the best choice – 8.5 seconds to 100 km/h and the top speed is 217 km/h (135 mph). It covers 100 km with just 4.2 litres diesel – 67.2 mpg with CO2 emissions of 110 g/km.
