Five Door Honda Civic To Hit UK Dealerships

There's a 5-Door Honda Civic hatchback coming to UK dealers. Sadly, the 5-door variant isn't available in the US this year, however there are 4-Door and Coupe models on sale at Smart Honda in Des Moines.

Honda says their 'Euro-Spec Civic' was designed to "offer the best in aerodynamics," thus offering optimal fuel economy. And you can tell it's true: not only by its design, but also engine choices. 3 powerplants are available for 2012. A 1.4-liter i-VTEC produces 98 hp and 94 lb-ft of torque. The 1.8-liter i-VTEC gives you 139 hp and 128 lb-ft of torque. Finally, Honda's the 2.2-liter i-DTEC diesel produces 148 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. Top speeds are 116, 134 and 135 mph respectively.1

Acceleration from 0-62 mph is 13.4 seconds for the 1.4, 9.1 seconds for the 1.8, and 8.5 seconds for the 2.2 diesel.

Inside, not much differs from American models. The cabin is given 'soft touch' plastics, a redesigned steering wheel and infotainment system. This model is 10mm wider, 20mm lower, and comes with either 16 or 17-inch alloy wheels.
