All models get an ECON driving mode to save fuel, and manual models are fitted with a start/stop system. The smallest engine is only available in the base-spec model. All models come with a six-speed manual transmission as standard, but a five-speed automatic is available with the 1.8-litre petrol.

There will be four trim levels available, SE, ES, EX and EX GT. Basic SE models start at £16,495 with the 1.4-litre engine and come with alloy wheels, automatic air conditioning, USB/ AUX connectivity.

The next trim level, ES, starts at £18,995 and features cruise control, speed limiter, reversing camera, dual zone air-con, auto lights and auto wipers. Sat nav is optional in ES models. EX models get sat nav as standard, as well as heated leather seats and a premium sounds system. Prices for EX models start at £21,745.

For an additional £1,900 an adaptive cruise control and collision mitigating brake system can be specified.

The new model will be the ninth generation of Civic - the first was introduced in 1972. The new model will be built in the UK at Honda's Swindon plant.

I think there might be some flaws in that lot.

Available to order now
Honda has revealed prices for the new 2012 Civic will range from £16,495 OTR for the entry-level 1.4-litre 100PS i-VTEC SE and from £26,595 OTR for the top of the range Civic 2.2 i-DTEC EX GT. The car will also be available in the familiar SE, ES, EX and EX GT trim levels offering customers generous equipment as standard.

The new 2012 Civic was unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show last month and order books at Honda dealerships are now open with cars arriving in dealerships during January.

New standard equipment across the range
Standard equipment new to the Civic includes, Honda’s Intelligent Multi-Information Display (i-MID) 5-inch dashboard screen which displays relevant driving details such as mpg, the idle stop status and climate and audio settings. Other new additions include a rear wiper, daytime running lights and a headlight-off timer that maintains illumination for 15 seconds after the car is locked.

Fuel saving technology
In addition, every new Civic comes with Idle Stop fuel-saving technology (manual transmission only) and an ECON switch for the first time. The ECON switch is already found in the Insight and Jazz Hybrid and activating it tells the car’s management system to adopt specific settings to improve fuel consumption. It does so without affecting overall safety levels or the general usability of the car.

Entry-level SE trim
The entry-level SE trim also includes 16-inch alloy wheels, automatic air-conditioning and USB connectivity for compatible MP3 audio devices. However, for an extra £1,500 – making the price from £17,995 OTR – they can have the same spec but benefit from the extra performance of a 1.8-litre 142PS i-VTEC petrol engine.

For diesel fans, the Honda Civic SE is available with a refined, powerful 2.2-litre 150PS i-DTEC engine and costs from £20,095 OTR.

ES grade
The ES specification is priced from £18,995 OTR when paired with the 1.8-litre petrol or from £21,095 OTR for the diesel. It features all the equipment found in SE and adds a host of features which are new to the Civic range, including cruise control with a speed limiter, rear view parking camera, keyfob-operated windows and door mirror folding, plus auto up/down electric rear windows.

Additional kit on ES includes dual-zone air-conditioning, BluetoothTM Hands Free Telephone (HFT), front fog lamps, auto headlights and wipers, leather steering wheel and gear knob, ambient interior lighting and 6 speaker audio system.

T-Grade package
Available on SE and ES trim levels from March 2012, the T-Grade package costs £995 and adds extra equipment to the specification including integrated satellite navigation with full European mapping and touch screen.

EX trim
EX is the third of the four trims and comes with leather upholstery with heated front seats and a HDD satellite navigation and premium audio system as standard. It costs from £21,745 OTR with the 1.8-litre petrol engine and from £23,845 OTR for the 2.2-litre diesel.

Top of the range EX GT
The flagship of the all-new Honda Civic range is EX GT, priced from £24,495 and £26,595 for the petrol and diesel respectively. New to the Honda Civic range are smart (keyless) entry/ignition, front and rear parking sensors, bi-xenon HID headlights and lumbar support. Also included on EX GT is all the equipment found in the EX plus a panoramic glass roof, 17-inch alloy wheels, privacy glass, auto-dimming rear view mirror and sunglasses holder.

For the first time Honda’s Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) and Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS) are available in the Civic range. This advanced technology is available as a package in EX GT specification only for an extra £1,900 OTR.

Automatic gearbox
All models come with a six-speed manual transmission as standard. However, the 1.8-litre petrol can be specified with a five-speed automatic gearbox for an additional £1,385.

Built in Britain
Built at Honda’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Swindon, Wiltshire, the new 2012 Civic will offer customers high-quality fit and finish using first-class materials and with Honda’s unparalleled reputation for reliability, it will provide years of peace-of-mind motoring.

Order books at Honda dealerships are now open and cars will arrive in dealerships during January.

Ryan - Civic is still made in Swindon mate; i know, welded 300 odd side panels for 10hours today!
I do like the look of this Civic more so than the 8th gen.. However, i do believe Honda haven't removed that stupid bar across the back window (8th owners, surely that reduces visibility!?)

Who's going to pay £26,500 for a Civic lol , Flagship model should be £18 - £19k tops and should only top 20K if your adding some really funky options, there's no way in hell anyone is going to pay this, and if anyone is stupid enough to stump up they will be so pissed off when Honda drop the price by thousands due to poor sales. You can buy some stonking cars for this kind of money.

really?

Not long ago they stopped, re-trained all staff to the jazz and shipped production off to japan. reason was wroughton airfield being full of unsold civics because it just didnt sell. Sounds like a major waste of money if they started up again

I found the split rear screen quite handy last night as it blocks the cars behind headlights, I don't find reversing it a issue as I am used to reversing with the mirrors (Kinda have to while driving a van lol) and the bottom screen is basicly the back of the car.

I think a turbo to offset the sluggishness the vtec suffers from low down would go down well, the vtec is a unique feel to it but it's still nothing like the kick in the back you get with turbocharged cars. It could be 2 stage, just enough below vtec to give it some low down torque and onto all hell breaking loose when it hit's vtec. Would need a really good LDS if it was to remain FWD though.
