My new 9th gen 1.8 uses 8.8 liters/100km (that is around 26 mpg) in winter conditions, mostly heavy traffic. The computer shows 9.4 though. I calculated it based on how much fuel got in after driving a given distance.
I'd never opt for 1.4. This engine would be OK in a Jazz/Fit but not in a Civic. I suppose, overtaking with this thing under the bonnet must be a pain but,of course, it depends on the person who drives it, I guess. For city driving only, it might be sufficient.
