Which Honda Civic is this? It’s the new Civic diesel. Lucky you, eh, stumbling upon one of the most exciting pages currently on the internet… If you’re unduly worried, here’s a Civic Type R going absurdly quickly around the Nürburgring. This is a very relevant car if you’re shopping for something easy going and sensible, though, which presumably the vast majority of car purchases are designed to be. Honda expects around a third of Civic purchases to be diesels, so the fuel still accounts for a good portion of sales. Some stats, please. The Civic uses a 1.6-litre four-cylinder turbodiesel, producing a very modest 120bhp, but a far chunkier 221lb ft of torque. Developed at just 2,000rpm, the latter gives the Civic plenty of vigour at low speed, making the relatively small power figure less of a worry.
