Car Magazine - 2.2 diesel

The new Civic makes a strong case for itself if you value something different from the obvious Euro-boxes. Ubiquity has dulled the impact of its predecessor, but there’s still an appealing package to be had in the new Civic. And the premium-feel shines through in this new model, particularly the upmarket cabin.

Four stars overall.

Several Car Mag's have mentioned that the 2.2, is the far better purchase.

"Fresh thinking comes in the form of ‘magic’ seats in the rear – an innovative feature, which allows the back seats to fold totally flat, or flip vertically backwards so that the rear passenger compartment can carry awkward upright loads easily. Honda is clearly wise to the fact that neat details like that shift cars from showroom floors."

Like its something new we offer. Been in the Jazz since 2002 and 8th Gen Civic since 2005/6. Yet another clueless journo who went on a free trip to Spain.

Yeah, yeah we've heard it all before.

Torque may give you the perception if power, but on the 8th gen at least the performance figures are virtually the same.

Stopped reading right after the reviewer said that the split dash has no purpose, fool, it's brilliant because I can see what speed I'm doing without having to take my eyes off the road...

The exhaust emissions standards for new cars have effectively required fitment of a DPF in the exhaust of diesel cars since 2009 when the 'Euro 5' standard came into force. In fact, many cars registered before 2009 will have had one fitted too in anticipation of the change in standards.

Unless, like HONDA you fit the DPF at the hot end of the exhaust system so it warms up and activates more often, more efficently. OOHH, yes, we are Honda aren't we.......
