The Diesel Debate - Which Fuel is Right for Me?

Thursday, 27 July 2017 at 1.40PM

Choosing your next Honda

There has been much debate about diesel cars and their emissions, both CO2, NOx and particulates. In order to make a decision on your next car, you need to understand these emission types and how they relate to the sort of driving you do:

  • CO2 - contributes to global warning and is a threat to the planet
  • NOx and particulates - affect local air quality and are an urban challenge

Diesel cars produce less CO2 than Petrol, which is beneficial for our fight against global warming, but petrol cars produce less NOx and particulates, which is beneficial for tackling local air quality. Therefore we believe that every driver should purchase the car that works best for their journey, profile and lifestyle:

  • Think Diesel - if you drive long distances on the motorway or are generally a high mileage driver
  • Think Petrol - if you live in a city and mainly do short journeys inside the city or are generally a low mileage driver

MPG Marathon for the Civic 1.6 Diesel

Tuesday, 5 November 2013 at 12.00AM

A rigorous round of real-world testing dubbed the ‘MPG Marathon’ has once again underlined the impressive fuel-efficiency of the new Honda Civic 1.6 i-DTEC.

In the test of 23 cars driven by independent journalists and company car drivers on UK roads, the Civic took third place for overall mpg, behind the Ford Fiesta ECOnetic and Renault Clio Dynamique - both much smaller cars than the Honda.

Over a 367 mile drive the Civic recorded an excellent overall mpg of 84.87mpg, just 4mpg behind the winner. It exceeded its official combined figure by some 8.12 per cent, placing it third place overall in percentage improvement on quoted mpg figures. The Civic also recorded the third lowest CO2 emissions of the models on test, with just 94g/km.

The most frugal Honda CR-V

Friday, 12 July 2013 at 12.00AM

Honda has added the 1.6-litre diesel engine from the Civic hatchback to the CR-V range, and in doing so, it has created the most economical and lowest-emitting version of its family-friendly SUV.

Thus far, the most frugal CR-V has been the 2.2-litre diesel-engined model, which averages just over 50mpg and emits 149g/km, but the 1.6-litre model has that well beaten: it averages 62.8mpg and emits just 119g/km of CO2. That makes it one of the most frugal SUVs on sale today.

Civic 1.6 i-DTEC Real World MPG Challenge

Monday, 24 June 2013 at 12.00AM

Earlier this year Honda (UK) invited a few of its Twitter followers, to make a video-based test drive review of the new Civic 1.6 i-DTEC. But no ordinary review - a challenge to find how far the new Civic Diesel might go on a single tank of diesel.

With an official combined fuel economy of 78.5 mpg, the 120 PS i-DTEC engined Civic and its 50 litre capacity fuel tank could theoretically cover a range of over 850 miles - but we all know the official figures set by industry standard simulated test cycles are rarely comparable to real life driving and speeds.

New Honda Civic 1.6 i-DTEC diesel

Tuesday, 6 November 2012 at 12.00AM

A while ago we announced the launch of the new 1.6 litre diesel. As expected, it is now being added to the Honda Civic range. The new engine boasts 120-PS and achieves 78.5-mpg whilst emitting just 94g/km CO2 - thus qualifying it for free road tax and exemption from the London Congestion charge (subject to registration).

The model will be all but identical to the 2.2 i-DTEC, with the exception of the 16" alloy wheels, and will go on sale at the beginning of 2013, priced from £19,400.

The 1.6-litre i-DTEC engine will also be going into the Honda CR-V later in 2013.

Honda announce CO2 of 95g/km for new Civic 1.6 Diesel

Thursday, 8 March 2012 at 12.00AM

Honda Motor Europe's President, Manabu Nishimae, today announced that the 1.6-litre i-DTEC engine in the new Civic would deliver CO2 emissions of 95g/km.

The new 1.6-litre i-DTEC engine is the first drive train from Honda's new Earth Dreams Technology engine series to be introduced into Europe. It will be manufactured at Honda's UK manufacturing facility in Swindon from the end of 2012.

The application of new high-strength material in the cylinder head has enabled Honda to deliver the world's lightest aluminium open deck 1.6-litre diesel engine.

These lightweight characteristics, along with the compact high-efficiency turbocharger enhance responsiveness and ensure the car will offer a class-leading balance of fuel economy and performance.
