Back to topWhile the application of the e:HEV system is exactly the same as in the Jazz and HR-V, the Civic uses a new 2.0-litre direct-injection turbo petrol engine (which we might hope to find in the imminent new Civic Type R) in conjunction with two electric motors, one acting as a generator and one giving propulsion, delivering 181bhp and 232lb ft of torque combined.

A lot better looking than the last one. Must have sacked the old design team. Looks like it could be an Accord! Size looks huge. We can thank the car Gods that it looks less offensive than the last one.
