The first model with an engine from Honda’s new Earth Dreams Technology series is the UK-manufactured Honda Civic Hatch Diesel.

The 1.6-litre i-DTEC turbo diesel engine is the first diesel in Honda Australia’s range, launching in April this year.

The Civic Hatch DTi-S delivers 88kW and 300Nm of torque; and with fuel economy of 4 litres per 100 kilometres and CO2 emissions of just 105g/km it offers an impressive balance of fuel economy with exceptional performance.

Honda Australia Director and General Manager Sales and Marketing, Mr. Stephen Collins, said the introduction of the DTi-S is an exciting and welcome addition to the Civic Hatch range.

“This all-new 1.6 litre i DTEC turbo diesel engine is a first for Honda in Australia.”

“Earth Dreams Technology was created from an awareness of rising fuel prices combined with increasingly stringent environmental performance targets. This new generation of powertrains brings advanced driving performance and low emissions within reach of our customers,” Mr. Collins said.

The European-built DTi-S is an addition to the existing Civic Hatch line-up. Large Project Leader, Suehiro Hasshi said developing the car was all about smart, pure engineering. “Our motivation has been to make many small detail improvements that together make a major difference. That is the challenge and the beauty of the Earth Dreams Technology philosophy.”

The new 1.6 litre engine is light, with individual components redesigned to minimise weight and size. A newly designed lightweight and compact six-speed manual transmission delivers class-leading transmission efficiency, a smooth and accurate feel when changing gears and a new reverse system which delivers improved operation load and quietness.

The Civic Hatch DTi-S is equipped with loads of features such as Honda’s Magic seats, a tyre deflation warning system, daytime running lights, 17-inch alloy wheels, auto stop/idle stop, Hill Start Assist, auto headlights and wipers, dual-zone climate control, ECON Mode, Intelligent Multi-Information Display and a five-star ANCAP safety rating.

The Civic Hatch DTi-S is priced at the Manufacturer’s List Price* (MLP*) of $26,990*.


* Manufacturer's List Price (MLP) excludes dealer delivery fees and the numerous statutory charges (commonly known as on-road costs). Additionally, please note that all prices, fees and charges are subject to change without notice, as are the specifications.
