The Advance grade starts from £32,955, and includes an upgraded, premium 12-speaker BOSE ‘CenterpointTM’ sound system.

Pricing wise, its almost as if Honda doesnt want to sell any!

£30k for the entry model is quite....bonkers.

To me, its evident Honda want out of the UK eventually and pricing like this proves they are well on their way to the exit given how small the product range is and how tiny their market share is...

However, I wont deny, its a great looking thing. If its anything like the HR-V Hybrid my old man has, the Civic Hybrid will be phenomenal.

I must say that in these days of rising costs will £30k be too much or will they all be on PCP.

I just hope diehard 3 pedal drivers give the e:hev a fair test as it's brilliant technology. I was a diehard torque converter auto fan but the Jazz 'auto box' setup is better, smoother, quieter. There was no way I was going to buy another DCT/DSG type transmission that VAG seem to be limited to. Had one for 2 1/2 years, never again.

And as usual, the moronic press trot out the CVT nonsense......
Lets be clear about this. It is NOT CVT transmission - the wheels are driven by electric motors unless I have totally misunderstood. Electric motors Good -. CVT Not good.

Correct, the wheels are driven by electric motor, unless you want more then a combination of electric motor and engine kick in. It's a very clever system.

As you say, CVT it isn't.

However, some lazy journalists haven't a clue and still quote CVT.

How it works, from Honda :

This is the Jazz but it's the same :

Brilliant Video. Toyota do a similar but more sophisticated system. Clever technology which has been tried and tested for a number of years now.

CVT Not good
Off topic, but depends on who makes the CVT...

Nissan...forget it.

Honda. Epic.

No issues at all on my 1.5T CVT CR-V. Pulls like a train and shifts like a bullet considering its an SUV.

Anyway, Civic....price aside, this machine will be PDG given how well Honda's Hybrid system is set up in the CR-V Hybrid, Jazz Hybrid and HR-V Hybrid.

its a ROBOTIC CVT, that tricks you (and car) that it changing gears like a normal car.. for the driver.. the sound and feel it will be like a normal gearbox, gearshifts.. in reality its a CVT..

Saw part of the live stream via my local dealer and was gobsmacked when they said starting from just under 30k. Think the 10th gen sport was 24k 25k new, guess they are factoring in costs for the chips and other bits.

Would say with those prices that the new type r will be north of 40k.

Bought my first new Civic in 95. Bought another 5 new ones since. So won't rule out the new one but my initial thoughts are that it is very expensive compared to competition and involves residual prices hitting battery to achieve mpg diesel was doing in 06.

Please could anyone advise if this is cam chain, belt or god forbid belt in oil? Also is this Japanese or US built?

Thanks.
