WHEN every other car appears to be an SUV, Honda is going in the opposite direction. It will launch a smart-looking four-door saloon in August.

For company car drivers whose choice lists restrict them to four-door saloons, then this will be welcome news.

There’s a choice of a 1.0 i-VTEC petrol already available on the Civic hatchback with either  CVT auto or manual transmission.

Or a 1.6 i-DTEC diesel (also available in the hatchback) and will be available with the same manual transmission or a new nine-speed automatic.

Honda says the new Civic Saloon is wider, longer, and lower than any of its predecessors, with a short front overhang and taut lines that reference the strong aerodynamic efficiency.

There’s also a touch of sportiness from the pronounced wheel-arches.

The interior features a spacious, simple, uncluttered layout and, according to Honda, exceptional refinement.

Phil Webb, Head of Car at Honda, commented:

“The Civic is a core model for Honda in Europe and has been at the heart of the brand’s strong sales and manufacturing heritage, with the hatchback built in Swindon. The arrival of the saloon to the UK market compliments the Civic family and will be a great addition to our showrooms alongside what is already a very successful range for Honda.”

Details on pricing, specification, grades and fuel efficiency will be announced closer to launch.

The new Honda Civic Saloon will be built in Turkey.
