The new variant will be available in three generously equipped trim levels. Prices will start at a very competitive GBP 19,400 for the SE model, GBP 20,595 for the ES and GBP 23,175 for the top-of-the-range EX.

The specification for this trio of new variants will be identical to the equivalent 2.2-litre i-DTEC cars, but with the addition of new 16-inch alloy wheels. The 1.6 i-DTEC EX has also been enhanced with several desirable convenience features including front and rear parking sensors, an auto-dimming rear view mirror and DAB digital radio.

Honda's advanced-DTEC diesel technology has already proved its environmental credentials over a number of years. It went on sale in the UK in 2.2-litre guise in the refined Accord Saloon/Tourer in 2008 and the award-winning CR-V sports utility vehicle in 2010.

Early interest in the new 1.6 i-DTEC Civic has been very positive and it's expected to be warmly welcomed into fleets when the first deliveries commence in January 2013.
