HONDA Civic Sedan 2008 - 2012

Honda introduced a facelifted version for the European Civic sedan in 2008, preparing it for the Euro 5 emission standards.

While the U.S. customers had to wait for a few more years to receive a new version of the sedan, the Europeans already had it refreshed. The Japanese carmaker already had its new factory in Turkey up and running and needed to fill it with orders.

The facelifted version featured similar headlights and grille but with a different bumper. Unlike its predecessor, which sported rectangular fog lights, the 2008 model received round ones. Its lower grille was trapezoidal. In the back, the carmaker installed new taillights with a turn signal on the lower-outer area.

Inside, the carmaker introduced new materials inside the cabin and a new infotainment unit. For the middle trim level, the cabin received sport-trimmed black cloth seats with suede bolsters. Honda installed a 60/40 split bench in the rear as standard, expanding the trunk size.

Under the hood, the carmaker offered the car with only one engine option for the European market: a 1.8-liter, single-camshaft i-VTEC unit carried over from its hatchback sibling. It paired it with a six-speed manual while a five-speed automatic was on the options list. The carmaker used the same 1.3-liter IMA (Integrated Motor Assist) unit paired to a CVT transmission as standard for the hybrid version.

See also: Honda Civic Hybrid

Motor vehicle

The eighth generation Honda Civic is a range of compact cars (C-segment) manufactured by Honda between 2005 and 2012, replacing the seventh-generation Civic. Four body styles were introduced throughout its production run, which are sedan, coupe, and both three-door and five-door hatchback. The sedan version was introduced with two distinct styling for different markets, with one of them sold as the Acura CSX in Canada and as the Ciimo Si Ming in China from 2012 to 2016. The hatchback versions formed the European-market Civic range, which received a different architecture, body design and smaller footprint, and solely produced in Swindon, United Kingdom.

The Type R performance model was introduced in 2007 for sedan and three-door hatchback body styles, with the former only sold in Japan and other limited Asian markets.

Interior (hybrid, Europe)

The sedan Civic was sold worldwide, including in some countries in Europe it was sold alongside the European-market Civic hatchback.[4] However, Honda introduced two different styling for different markets, with Asia-Pacific (except China), Africa, Europe and Russia received a version that is identical to Canadian-market Acura CSX. China and the rest of the Americas receive the North American-market Civic sedan, with limited availability of the coupe model in some countries.

It also features a redesigned dashboard incorporating a "two-tier" instrument panel. The upper panel is completely electronic and contains a digital speedometer in the center, with the coolant temperature and fuel displayed as linear segmented indicators on each side. The lower tier, slightly smaller than that of previous generations, has a backlit analog tachometer and the digital odometer and trip computer below it. The gear shift position indicators are to the right of the tachometer in automatic transmission and hybrid models, while the latter also features additional IMA Assist and Charge indicators to the left. Indicator lights are spread over both displays, whose brightness can be adjusted and saved independently (with the headlights on or off).

In the chassis, Honda introduces improvements in three key areas, which are enhanced suspension geometry with larger wheels and tires, a longer wheelbase, and a new generation 4-channel anti-lock braking system (ABS). To improve steering rigidity and reduce friction, the steering gear box was mounted lower. Significant changes to steering angles, bushings, material rigidity, and spring and shock tuning were claimed to result in a more linear suspension movement when cornering. The rear suspension was also reworked, with the multi-linkdouble wishbone rear suspension benefits from a new design that facilitates more rebound stroke and improved positioning of the damper. The improved rebound stroke allows the vehicle to absorb harsh road surfaces better, while also enhancing overall stability.[5]

North America[edit]

2007 Civic DX sedan (Canada)

2006–2008 Civic EX coupe (US)

In the North American market, the sedan and coupe styles were available, and were designed in Japan and Ohio respectively.[6][7] The sedan model was introduced in September 2005 for the 2006 model year. Both the sedan and coupe are available in several trim levels (DX, DX-G, LX, EX, EX-L and Si). The hybrid model only comes as a sedan, while the Si coupe was joined by a sedan in 2007, and the Si sedan entered the Canadian lineup in 2008.

2008 model year saw the addition of new interior features such as a 60/40 rear folding seat and remote trunk release for LX models (previously only available on EX models), while 2009 models had a mid-generation refresh most notable on the front grille.[8] Additionally, the 2006 models acquired ULEV-2 (Ultra Low Emission Vehicle) certification and boast a more powerful 1.8-litre engine than the 2005 counterparts while retaining almost equal fuel economy. The Civic Si and Civic Hybrid feature a sport-oriented electric power steering, while regular use a speed sensitive hydraulic power steering system.[5]

During the debut of Civic sedan and coupe concepts at the 2011 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, it was announced that more than 1.5 million units of the eighth-generation Civic have been sold since it first went on sale in late 2005. More than 95 percent of all Civics sold in the US as of calendar year 2010 were made in North America at manufacturing facilities in either Greensburg, Indiana or Alliston, Ontario in Canada.[9] Production in East Liberty, Ohio ended early in 2009 to focus on production of Honda crossover models.[10]

Trims and models[edit]

The base DX model is equipped with LATCH, immobilizer theft-deterrent system, power windows, daytime running lights (DRL), 15-inch steel wheels with covers, driver's seat height adjustment, and other features[11] American DX models do not have a standard audio system, while the Canadian equivalent has a 160 watt 4-speaker AM/FM/MP3 stereo system with CD player. Air conditioning was optional, which is known as DX-A in Canada.

The DX-VP (Value Package) sold in the United States adds air conditioning and the 160 watt 4-speaker AM/FM/MP3 stereo system with CD player.

The DX-G model sold in Canada adds air conditioning, auxiliary input jack for portable audio players, power door locks, remote keyless entry and storage console armrest. In 2008, it added cruise control,15-inch (380 mm) lightweight alloy wheels (same as the ones on the Civic Hybrid), and a lip spoiler.

The LX model adds a 160 watt 4-speaker AM/FM/MP3 stereo system with CD player (for the US only, all Canadian DX and LX models already include that system), 16-inch steel wheels with covers (5-spoke alloy wheels in Canadian LX models), cruise control, MP3/audio jack, passenger-side walk-in with memory (coupe only), floor mats, and an anti-theft security system with remote entry (US models only). In 2008, Canadian LX models added features including a lip spoiler, 60/40 rear folding seat, and remote trunk release.

Since 2009, the LX-S (sport) for the US market adds 16-inch (410 mm) alloy wheels, lip spoiler, steering-wheel cruise controls, and black sport upholstery with silver stitching.

The 2008 model year introduced the LX-SR or LX Sunroof for the Canadian market, which adds a power moonroof and 4-wheel disc brakes. In 2009, the sedan was renamed the Sport and has added features such as black sport upholstery with silver stitching, chrome exhaust finisher, and leather-wrapped steering wheel. These amenities were not added to the coupe which remained as the LX.

The EX model adds a power moonroof, 4-wheel disc brakes, 16-inch alloy wheels, an additional 12-volt accessory outlet (for a total of two), a 350 watt stereo system with six speakers (coupe only, the sedan EX comes with a 160 watt stereo system), exterior temperature indicator, a foldable rear arm rest with integrated cupholders (sedan only), and an optional voice-activated navigation system. This trim was sold in Canada in the 2006/2007 model year, until it was replaced with the LX-SR and EX-L models.

The EX-L model adds a leather interior with heated front seats, heated exterior mirrors, leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a center console.

All coupes come standard with a rear lip-spoiler, while EX models have round chrome finish on the exhaust pipe. Coupes are intended to be sportier than their sedan counterparts, they have a more aggressive suspension set up consisting of firmer spring rates and thicker anti roll bars coupled with adjusted damping settings.[12] Civic models with a moonroof have slightly less interior space due to reduced headroom.

The Honda Civic GX is designed to run on compressed natural gas (CNG). Due to the limitations of the CNG tanks, the 6-speaker stereo system is not installed.

Only a continuously variable transmission (CVT) was offered for the 2006 Honda CivicHybrid, which gains more power and a mileage boost to a United States Environmental Protection Agency estimated 40 mpg‑US (5.9 L/100 km; 48 mpg‑imp)/45 mpg‑US (5.2 L/100 km; 54 mpg‑imp) (city/highway). It achieves an AT-PZEV emission rating. The 1.3 L L13A i-DSI engine (in Europe marketed as 1.4 L engine) has been upgraded to achieve 93 hp (69 kW), instead of 83 hp (62 kW) in earlier model. Accompanied by the electric motor with 15 kW (20 hp) which gives in total 110 hp (82 kW) for the Hybrid vehicle.[6] Top speed was rated at 186 km/h (116 mph), CO2 emission is 109 g/km and the mass of the car is 2,875 lb (1,304 kg)—not much for a car equipped with IMA electric motor and nickel–metal hydride batteries (5.5 A·h, 158 V).

Both the Civic GX and Civic Hybrid have a similar trim level to the Civic LX, with some differences like 15-inch (380 mm) lightweight alloy wheels, and external mirror lights.

Si[edit]

The car comes with a 2.0-liter K20Z3i-VTEC engine that produces 197 hp (147 kW; 200 PS) and 139 lbf⋅ft (188 N⋅m) of torque, while including a 6-speed manual transmission with a helical limited slip differential.[6] Forty percent stiffer spring and dampening rates from the non-Si trims and stiffer sway bars have bolstered the Civic Si's handling,[13] with the car achieving 0.90g (8.8 m/s2) of lateral acceleration on the skidpad. It was also the quickest Civic Si off the line, with a factory 0–60 time of 6.7 seconds according to Honda.[14] Some new features include a moonroof, a seven-speaker 360-watt sound system, 17-inch alloy wheels with 215/45R17 Michelin all-season tires, and key-less trunk access. Brazilian market Si's have a 192 hp (143 kW; 195 PS) version of the K20 engine designated K20Z5.

In Canada, the Acura CSX Type-S was offered in 2007, borrowing the engine and drivetrain from the Civic Si but offering additional luxury options such as leather seating. The CSX features similar front and rear fascias to the JDM Civic, but with slight differences—the CSX has a crease running along the center of the hood and front bumper, whereas the JDM does not.[15]

The 2007 model year changes for the Civic Si include the addition of the Si trim for sedans, vehicle stability assist (VSA) (not available on Canadian models until the 2010 and 2011 model years), darker silver wheels, body-color grille, a deck lid spoiler, reversed red/black coloring on the odometer, and Si-embroidered front floor mats. The introductory price of the Si Coupe increased by $800 to the MSRP of $21,090. In 2017, 10 years after its original release, the 2007 model was recalled due to a defect in the vehicle's airbags, where it could potentially explode in front of the driver and its occupants when activated in both minor and major accidents, posing a threat to passengers.[citation needed]

For the 2008 model year, the Civic Si received minor tweaks that include even darker wheels than the 2007 model and a new shift boot with red stitching. Mechanical changes included a new tire pressure monitor system, a new rear upper arm that decreases the amount of rear camber, and a lowered spring rate for the coupe to match the sedan. This was also the first year Canada sold the Civic Si Sedan.

Civic Si sedan

Civic Si sedan

Honda introduced the Civic Si sedan for North America in 2007; previously, only the Japanese market had been offered Si sedans.[16] Debuted at the Chicago Auto Show, the Si sedan concept featured larger 18-inch alloy wheels than its coupe counterpart, along with 4-piston Brembo brakes, and large cross drilled brake rotors. The production version lacked such concept accoutrements, and the Si Sedan is mechanically almost identical to the coupe. Performance of the Si sedan is roughly equivalent to the Si coupe; the sedan's 60-pound (27 kg) weight increase is offset by a slightly more balanced front/rear weight distribution (60/40 for the sedan versus 61/39 for the coupe).[17]

The 2008 model year also brought into production the limited-edition 2008 Civic Mugen Si Sedan, which was announced at the 2007 SEMA Show.[18] The Mugen sedan came only in Fiji Blue Pearl, and featured a higher-flowing cat-back exhaust, track-tested sport suspension, an exclusive Mugen grille, an exclusive shift knob, Mugen Si badges on the exterior and interior, Mugen forged GP wheels, and a Mugen body kit custom designed for the American trim. Production was limited to only 1000 units.[19] Testing by Car and Driver magazine determined that the acceleration of the Mugen Si was roughly equivalent to that of the standard Civic Si coupe.[20]

Facelift[edit]

For the 2009 model year, Civics sold in the North American market received a facelift. For the sedan exterior, the front bumper and grille were restyled and the bar above the rear license plate is chromed, while the coupe received a new front bumper and grille both reminiscent of previous Civic coupe generations. The sedan's taillights now use transparent lenses with amber bulbs for the turn signals, rather than red lenses. For the interior, the sedan's steering wheel was changed from a two-spoke design to use the coupe and Si model's three-spoke design.

Changes for the 2009 Si also included a revised front bumper and grille, turn signals with clear-lenses and amber bulbs for the front and rear, a clear instead of red third brake light in the rear spoiler, and chrome trunk trim for the sedan. The 2010 Civic Si saw no significant changes, save for a black engine cover rather than silver.

South America[edit]

For the Brazilian market, the eighth-generation Civic was available only with a sedan body, and it is externally almost identical to the American version, having different bumpers and a higher ground clearance. It was available in two trim levels. The LXS and EXS levels are equipped with the 1.8 L i-VTECSOHC engine generating 140 PS (103 kW). Both models might be equipped with a 5-speed manual or a 5-speed automatic transmission, but only the EXS has the paddle shift controls on the steering wheel. A special trim level for handicapped individuals (LX), based on the LXS, was available in the first year but due to some changes in tax-break laws it's no longer available. It was equipped with automatic transmission and limited to 125 PS (92 kW). The 2006 Civic received the "Best Buy" award from Quatro Rodas magazine.

The Si sedan was announced at Salão do Automóvel in São Paulo, featuring a 2.0 L i-VTEC DOHC at 192 PS (143 kW) (195 PS (145 kW) when using premium unleaded gasoline). For the 2007 model, Honda introduced a new flex fuel version, featuring the same 1.8 L engine, having 140 PS (103 kW) when running only on ethanol or 138 PS (101 kW) when running on gasoline. Argentina, Uruguay and Chile also receive Brazilian models. Peru previously received the Brazilian model, however it later it received the North American model.

China[edit]

Dongfeng Honda assembled and marketed the eighth-generation Civic in China from April 2006.[22] Its exterior is the same as the North American-market Civic, except with amber tail turn lights and only the sedan model was available. It is equipped with a 1.8-liter i-VTEC engine.

In April 2012, Dongfeng Honda relaunched the model as the Ciimo Si Ming. The Ciimo Si Ming differs from the previously sold Civic by adopting a front and rear end inspired by the Japanese market model, as a result, it is slightly longer. It comes with a 1.8-litre i-VTEC engine, with either a five-speed manual or five-speed automatic transmission.[23][24][25] Production was discontinued in 2016.

Outside the Americas and China, the eighth-generation Civic has styling differences. While the arcing line sweeping across the front fascia is retained, the main headlights dip away from the main arc for a more sporty appearance. The front bumper also has more vents with a steeper angle and sharper corners than the American-market Civic. Meanwhile, the taillights are more reminiscent of the Integra, with the main round brake lights dipping slightly down into the indicators. On the interior side, the Asian-market Civic has contrasting two tone colour scheme. The three-spoke steering wheel from the American Civic Si and the European hatchback is standard.

The Asia-Pacific-market Civic is in fact a rebadged Acura; Honda Japan claimed the company chose the Canadian-designed Acura CSX as the template for the Asia-Pacific Civic.[26][27] In Canada, the Acura CSX has features and options not available to American Civics, such as a 2.0 L DOHCi-VTECengine rated at 155 hp (116 kW), chrome door handles, paddle shifters, and high-intensity discharge headlights. Due to the width dimensions exceeding Japanese government regulations for exterior dimensions, the Civic was no longer regarded as a "compact" sedan in Japan, which has been passed onto the smaller Fit Aria for the compact sedan segment.

Engines include a 1.8-litre SOHC i-VTEC (R18A) engine that produces 140 bhp (104 kW; 142 PS) at 6300 rpm and a 2.0-litre DOHC i-VTEC (K20Z2) engine that produces 155 bhp (116 kW; 157 PS) at 6200 rpm, both are mated to either a 5-speed manual or 5-speed automatic (with paddle shifting available on the 2.0 L model) with drive by wire throttles. There was a 1.6-litre variant available in Singapore and Turkey. A (1,600 cc and below) vehicles in the vehicle numbers curbing system in Singapore, while maintaining a higher standard than the 1.3 L variant. It uses an SOHC i-VTEC engine, similar to that of the 1.8-litre variant. It produces 123 bhp (92 kW; 125 PS) at 6500 rpm. The hybrid version is equipped with the 1.3-litre SOHC i-VTEC with the IMA (Integrated Motor Assist).

In certain European countries, the four-door Civic sedan was available with the hybrid powertrain, being the only Civic sedan available in the UK.

In Taiwan, this generation of Civic was more inline with the JDM model, and was produced domestically since 2006. The Civic sedan was offered in 2 powertrains; the entry-level is powered by a 1.8 liter engine, producing 140 bhp (104 kW; 142 PS) at 6300 rpm, and mated to either a 5-speed automatic transmission. The more powerful 2.0 liter engine produces 155 bhp (116 kW; 157 PS) at 6000 rpm.[28]

In the Philippines, the Civic was offered in 3 grades; the entry-level 1.8 V, producing 140 bhp (104 kW; 142 PS) at 6300 rpm, and mated to either a 5-speed manual transmission or 5-speed automatic transmission. The 1.8 S has the same features as the V, however, it had different wheels, which is a 15" alloy, and equipment level such as ABS Brakes and SRS Airbags (2) while the S has a 16" alloy, 5-spoke wheels. The 2.0 S (dubbed by Honda Philippines as the 2.0 S-L, though on its badge, only the 2.0 is shown) produces 155 bhp (116 kW; 157 PS) at 6000 rpm. The S-L is only mated to a 5-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters, while the manual transmission version has been discontinued. The S-L variant also has a 17" 7-spoke alloy wheels, 3-spoke leather steering wheel, HID lamps, and has blue leather seats. All of the variants has a digital instrumental gauge. Since the current generation was first introduced to the market in April 2006, its total sales has exceed its nearest competitor, Toyota Corolla Altis.[29]

In Pakistan, the Civic was offered in 2 trim levels; the Civic i-VTEC/VTi and the Civic VTi Oriel, both versions are powered by a 1.8-liter SOHC i-VTEC engine, offered with manual or automatic(Prosmatec) transmissions. The difference between the two models is that the VTi Oriel gets additional features, not available in the i-VTEC/VTi, such as sunroof, alloy wheels and door mirrors with integrated turn signals.

The Indonesian market was offered in only two models, 1.8 and 2.0. The 1.8 was available in both manual (5-speed) and automatic (5-speed) transmissions. Both 1.8 and 2.0 automatic transmission has a paddle shifting, unlike the others for the Asian market. The 1.8 has dual airbags, ABS, EBD, a single-CD player, a 16-inch 5 spoke alloy wheels and air-conditioning, whereas the 2.0 adds a 6-disc CD changer, automatic air-conditioning, ESP, a 17-inch 5-spoke alloy wheels and navy blue/light gray interior instead of the dark gray/beige offered on the 1.8. The facelift model adds an 18-inch 8-spoke alloy wheels replacing the 17-inch offered on the 2.0 trim.

The South Korean market has three trim levels, 1.8, 2.0, and Hybrid. All Civic models are equipped with 5-speed Automatic transmissions, with the exception of the hybrid model which uses a CVT.

In Hong Kong, the right-hand drive Civic (FA1) was made in Japan but shares its exterior with the North American-market Civic. Two models (1.8 Deluxe and 1.8 VTi) are sold, sharing the same engine (R18A) with minor differences in appearance and equipment, e.g. side mirror turn signal light, side airbags and cruise control. In the facelift model, the more expensive VTi model comes with paddle shifters.

In Malaysia, the eighth-generation Civic was first launched in March 2006[30] and then facelifted in March 2009.[31] In July 2010, a 1.8S-L variant was introduced.[32] Prior to this, only two variants were offered: 1.8S and 2.0S.

Interior

The European-market Civic (FK/FN) was offered as three and five-door hatchbacks and produced in Swindon, United Kingdom. It has a different appearance and suspension setup compared to the sedan and coupe Civics.

Designed by Toshiyuki Okumoto,[33] the exterior of the European model more aggressively styled; the sweeping front arc is maintained and a perspex cover resembling a lamp cluster replaces the grille. The rear tail lights are also similarly styled. Triangular accents are found front and back, with triangular fog-lamps in front and dual triangle exhaust tips at the back. The rear glass is split into two levels, divided by a spoiler lip and the fuel filler cap is a race-inspired exposed metal effect cap. For the 5-door models, the rear door is hidden away with the door handles tucked away at the corners of the rear windows, creating the illusion of a two-door coupe.

Mechanically, the European-market Civic differs from the sedan and coupe variants in that it uses a simpler torsion beam suspension system for the rear wheels compared to the double-wishbone system in the sedan and coupe versions. The more compact suspension of the European-market Civic allows it to keep its large interior space, while reducing its length compared to its predecessor.

Inside, the European-market Civic follows the same split-level or "two-tier" instrument panel as the American and JDM Civics. However, the it has circular A/C vents and switchgear. There is also a start button reminiscent of the Honda S2000. The handbrake is in a more conventional position behind the gear stick. All around there is a generous use of metallic trim.

The vehicle features a rear seat folding system called the "magic seats", where rear seat cushions can be raised in part or full width allowing a secure and tall load area. Alternatively, the seat back can be tumbled flat as per a conventional hatch. When it's in its normal position, a storage room is available under the rear seat. It is made possible by situating the fuel tank beneath the front seats, freeing rear floor space under the rear seat like the Fit/Jazz.[34] There is also a "hidden" storage compartment in the boot under the floor. The lid, which normally forms part of the boot floor, can be sunk down to a lower level to increase the load area, designed to allow the boot area to accommodate larger or taller items. In the normal position, the storage area can be used to hide valuables away under the floor.

Some models in the range feature things like electric folding mirrors, a panoramic glass roof, dual climate control, automatic headlights, xenon lights, headlight washers, and automatic windshield wipers. The range-topping EX model also has DVD satellite navigation, and allows the car's entertainment system, climate control, navigation system and hands-free telephone system to be controlled all by voice commands.

In March 2008, Honda announced that it was recalling 79,000 eighth-generation Civics due to a potential problem with faulty handbrakes.[35]

The car won 2007 Irish Car of the Year.

Markets[edit]

In Serbia, Macedonia, Israel, Russia, Poland, Croatia, Ireland and South Africa both the 4-door JDM/Asian and 5-door European-market Civic models are available. In certain European countries, the four-door JDM Civic was available with the hybrid powertrain, and this was the only Civic sedan available in the UK. In other markets where sedans are more popular (such as Ireland, and Finland), a range of sedans similar to the JDM models are available with the 1.8 L i-VTEC. In Turkey, a 125 PS 1.6 L i-VTEC engine was available with the 4-door JDM/Asian body since tax brackets of this country rely on engine displacement (higher taxes are applied to the vehicles that have engine displacement more than 1600 cc). No saloon version was offered in most West European markets.

The European-market Civic was also sold in Australasia as the Civic Hatch, alongside the sedan body style.[36] In Singapore and Brunei, the 3-door European Civic Type R was available.

Powertrain[edit]

Engines include a 1.4-litre i-DSI, 1.4-litre i-VTEC, the 1.8-litre i-VTEC (R18A2) shared with the American and JDM models (although the American and JDM cars have this engine available as R18A1), and a 2.2-litre i-CTDiN22A2turbodiesel. A 6-speed manual transmission was available across the range. An automated manual transmission, known as i-SHIFT was available for models with 1.4- and 1.8-litre petrol engines. A 2.0-litre i-VTEC (K20Z4) petrol Type-R high-performance version was also available. Si and the Type-S models were also offered in Europe, with the Type-S in the three-door configuration (as is the more powerful Type-R) and the Si as a five-door, but both going without the 198bhp 2.0L engine used in the North American Si.

2009 facelift[edit]

Euro Civics (hatchback) received a mild facelift for 2009. The main change is the new redesigned front grille which now features two open intakes. The Type S received a grille similar to the Type R, only without the red badge. The rear bumper has also been slightly changed, as have some interior parts. The entry-level 1.4 i-DSI engine has been dropped from the line-up and replaced with a new, more powerful 100 PS 1.4 i-VTEC engine which was available with a new version of the i-SHIFT transmission.

2011 facelift[edit]

The car received a mild facelift for 2011, including a new front grille which was said to be inspired by that of European Type R model, new alloy wheels which are now standard equipment, body colour side-skirts for Type S model, a new ionized Bronze colour for the exterior. For the interior, SE and ES models gets half fabric and Alcantara, Si model comes with half leather and Alcantara with heated front seats. Production for the 2011 hatchback started at the Swindon plant in November 2010.[37] Honda discontinued the 2.2 L i-CTDi diesel engine offered in Civic from 2011.[38]

Type R[edit]

Main article: Honda Civic Type R

Civic Type R 4-door sedan (Japan)

Civic Type R 3-door hatchback (Australia)

Honda debuted a Type Rconcept for the European Civic at the 2006 Geneva Motor Show; the Type R, basing on the three-door hatchback developed for the European market, has a 2.0-litre 201 bhp (150 kW) at 7800 rpm inline 4 cylinder engine. The suspension uses MacPherson struts up front and a torsion beam in the back, while the car itself was initially thought to be lighter than the standard Civic as dictated by Honda Type R philosophy. Sophisticated handling aids such as traction control were initially thought to be completely eschewed for a purer, more soulful driving character. In the end, Honda did include a special version of their VSA (Vehicle Stability Assist) that was specifically tuned to the car so as to better adhere to said philosophy. The Type R went on sale in the UK in February or March 2007, and is scheduled to reach Australia in July the same year. The European Civic Type R also went on sale in Brunei.

The JDM/Asian 4-door Civic Type R went on sale on March 29, 2007. The Type R powered by an uprated K20A 2.0-litre i-VTEC engine producing 225 hp (167.8 kW) at 8000 rpm (Available in Japan and Malaysia only), while the other markets have 201 hp (149.9 kW) at 7800 rpm and comes with a specially tuned sports suspension that includes new Brembo brakes. The prototype Type R was used as the official car of the Formula 12006 Japanese Grand Prix. This will mark the first time that Honda will produce two separate distinct Civic Type R models.

Mugen's Civic RR, the Type R sedan's uprated model, is available in Japan. The Mugen RR sheds an additional 10 kg (22 lbs) off the standard Civic Type R's weight, coming in at 2,733 lb (1,240 kg). In addition to the weight loss, the freer-breathing Mugen RR picks up 15 hp (11 kW) over the regular Type R. It's rated at 240 hp (179 kW) at 8,000 rpm and 160 lb⋅ft (217 N⋅m) at 7,000 rpm.

Complementing the added power and decreased weight are a new bodykit, upgraded brakes all around, a retuned suspension, new wheels and tires, and logo-emblazoned Recaro sport buckets. Availability is limited to 300 cars, all in the Milano Red finish shown.
