The 10th generation of the Honda Civic is set to launch in March this year, ahead of the launch the media has been invited out to test the new car and see really how good it is. This means that this is the first time we are being presented with a full official list of the features of the Honda Civic. Highlights include two engine and gearbox combinations including a 141hp, 1.8-litre naturally aspirated petrol and a 120hp, 1.6-litre diesel engine.

On the outside, the new Honda Civic gets  LED headlamps, daytime running lamps and tail-lamps. For added value there is a chrome lining on the fog lamps as well as a few smatterings of chrome on the grille, door handles and the window line. The 2018 Civic also comes with 17-inch alloy wheels. On the inside, the Civic in its 10th generation continues to be one of the most luxurious and technologically forward cabins in its class. The theme is defined by ivory leather upholstery paired with a dual-tone dashboard and door panel theme. The leather steering wheel gets some blemishes in chrome with controls for the infotainment system and cruise control. Other features include dual-zone climate control, a powered sunroof, a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment display (that is Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatible), an eight-way power adjustable driver’s seat and a smart key. The smart key is actually a lot more than your run of the mill lock-unlock remote with functions for engine start/stop, sunroof control, power window control and boot release. All of which come as standard with the Civic. Push-button start, automatic wipers and a fully-digital 7.0-inch MID in the instrument cluster that displays information including access to a connected smartphone’s phone book, call history and music, along with average fuel efficiency and the distance to the empty meter are part of the list.
