THE much-anticipated new Honda Civic has finally been unleashed in South Africa and is available from Honda Shelly Beach.

The Fever was invited to test drive the sport version, and its performance and features are simply mind-blowing. The 1.5T Sport CVT features an all-new turbo direct injection engine that produces an exceptional 127 kW of maximum power at 5 500 r/min, along with 220 Nm of maximum torque.

In aiming for superior levels of design and comfort, the car combines a sleek and aerodynamic exterior with spaciousness and comfort.

The car's striking styling carefully reflects a revolutionary silhouette for a four-door sedan, creating the overall impression of a sleek sports coupé. Special attention was paid to the detailed surfaces in order to fuse quality with sportiness.

The result is a clean, sculpted body shape that emphasises the new Civic's sporty character, reinforced by the lower and wider stance, along with a longer bonnet and short front overhang. This gives the new Honda sedan a more aggressive, athletic and dynamic appearance, while also creating more interior room compared to the outgoing model.The uncluttered interior design features extensive use of attractive soft-touch materials that heighten the sense of premium quality.

Honda's new Agile Handling Assist (AHA) feature is integrated with the Civic's EPS and vehicle control systems to facilitate driving enjoyment, as well as overall control and stability. AHA anticipates a loss of control during cornering and helps to prevent it by continuously modulating brake and throttle inputs in small, imperceptible increments to assist overall driver control.

An additional safety net is provided by means of the Vehicle Stability Control, incorporating Hill Start Assist, along with ABS anti-lock brakes and electronic brake force distribution (EBD). The new Civic is equipped with dual front, side and curtain airbags, complemented with a reverse camera and rear parking sensors.

Honda Shelly Beach will officially launch the new Civic at their showroom this Saturday. The function starts at 9am and everyone is welcome.
For more information about the new Civic and the event, contact Honda Shelly Beach sales manager, Kim Scrooby on 039 315 0030.
