Honda began selling the 1169 cc (70 in³) transversely mounted inline four-cylinder Civic for about US$2,200. The car produced roughly 50 hp (37 kW) and included power front disc brakes, vinyl seating, reclining bucket seats and a woodgrain-accented dashboard. The hatchback version added a fold-down rear seat, an AM radio and cloth upholstery. The car had front and rear independent suspension. A four-speed transmission was standard. Options for the Civic were kept to a minimum, consisting of air conditioning, an automatic transmission called the Hondamatic, radial tires and a rear wiper for the hatchback. The car could achieve 40 mpg (6 L/100 km) on the highway, and with a small 86.6 inch (220 cm) wheelbase and 139.8 inch (355 cm) overall length, the vehicle weighed 1,500 pounds (680 kg).

The Civic's features allowed it to outperform American competitors such as the Chevrolet Vega and Ford Pinto. When the 1973 oil crisis struck, many Americans turned to economy cars. Reviews of American economy car quality were poor and getting worse due to spiraling costs for manufacturers. Japanese culture had a long-standing tradition of demanding high-quality economy cars, and the growing American desire in the 1970s for well-made cars that had good fuel mileage benefited the standing of Honda, Toyota, and Datsun in the lucrative U.S. market.[citation needed]

For 1974, the Civic's engine size grew slightly, to 1237 cc and power went up to 52 hp (39 kW). In order to meet the new 5 mph (8 km/h) bumper impact standard, the Civic's bumpers grew 7.1 inches (18 cm), increasing overall length to 146.9 inches (373 cm).[1] The CVCC (Compound Vortex Controlled Combustion) engine debuted in 1975 and was offered alongside the standard Civic engine. The optional 53 hp (40 kW) CVCC engine displaced 1488 cc and had a head design that promoted cleaner, more efficient combustion. The CVCC design eliminated the need for catalytic converters or unleaded fuel to meet changing emissions standards, unlike nearly every other U.S. market car. Due to California's stricter emissions standards, only the CVCC powered Civic was available in that state. A five-speed manual transmission became available this year, as did a Civic station wagon (only with the CVCC engine), which had a wheelbase of 89.9 inches (228 cm) and an overall length of 160 inches (406 cm). Civic sales also increased and topped 100,000 units for this year.[1]

1978 brought slight cosmetic changes: the grille was black; the rear-facing hood vents replaced the sideways vents; and turn indicators were mounted in the bumper instead of in the grille. The CVCC engine was now rated at 60 hp (45 kW).[1]

The 1980 Civic debuted with a more angular shape, increased engine power, and larger dimensions in all models. The wheelbase now measured 88.6 inches (225 cm) for the hatchback (the two-door "sedan" was dropped) and 91.3 inches (232 cm) for the wagon. All Civic engines now used the CVCC design; the base 1335 cc ("1300") engine made 55 hp (41 kW), while the 1488 cc ("1500") engine produced 67 hp (50 kW). Three transmissions were offered: a four-speed manual (on base models), a five-speed manual and a two-speed automatic.[1]

Civic hatchback 3 door
Civic hatchback 5 doorThe Civic 1300 and 1500 came in base and DX versions, and the latter featured a five-speed manual transmission, partial cloth seats, carpet, rear window defroster, intermittent wipers and a cigar lighter. The 1500 GL added radial tires, a rear window wiper/washer, tachometer, clock and bodyside moldings. The Civic wagon came in a single version that was similar to the DX trim level.[1]

In 1980 a "3-box" four-door sedan debuted, as did a three-speed automatic transmission that replaced the aging two-speed unit. Rectangular headlamps and black bumpers appeared on the 1982 Civic. A new highly efficient gasoline-sipping model, the five-speed "FE" (Fuel Economy) was introduced and was rated at 41 mpg (5.7 l/100 km) in the city and 55 mpg (4.3 l/100 km) on the highway.[1] The slogan for 1983 was We Make It Simple. Even the standard 1500cc model achieved an 34 mpg city, and 47 mpg highway when driven 55 mph, the maximum U.S. speed limit at the time (California mileage ratings).

The sport-oriented Civic "S" was introduced and replaced the 1500 GL in 1983 and was fitted with firmer suspension (with rear stabilizer bar) and 165/70R13 Michelin tires. A red accent encircled the S and set it apart from other Civics as well as a black grille and blackout paint around the windowframes.

In Europe a model called the Ballade which was based on the saloon version of this vehicle but with different styling, was available badged as a Triumph Acclaim[1]

For the third generation, the vehicle wheelbase was increased by 2–5 inches (13 cm) to 93.7 inches (hatchback) or 96.5 inches (sedan). A 3-door hatchback, 4-door sedan, 4-door "Shuttle" wagon, and CRX coupe shared common underpinnings. This included independent front control arms with torsion bar springs and a semi-independent rear beam with coil springs. However, the body panels were completely different for each body style, with nothing interchangeable beyond the front bumper and headlights.


1984-1985 Civic hatchback
1986-1987 Civic sedanThe sedan and hatchback shared the same dashboard, but the CRX and wagons both had their own unique dash (CRX having a covered cubby in the middle of the dash, the wagon having a pop up set of vents which could be used or retracted into the dash). A new 12-valve (three valves per cylinder) 76 hp, 1500 cc engine was introduced. The base hatchback and CRX 1.3 used the 1300 cc 8-valve engine giving 60 hp (45 kW). The DX and 1500S model hatchbacks shared the new 1500 cc engine with the sedan, wagon and CRX 1.5. The 1500S model achieved over 50 mpg highway. The CRX was a Civic with a slightly different body; it was strictly a 2-seater in the US with a lockable storage compartment, while it was offered to the rest of the world with a rear seat. The CRX lineup added the Si model in 1985 which used Honda's PGM-FI fuel injection on the 1488cc 4 cylinder; in the US this generated 91 horsepower. The Si model added an intricately designed rear wiper, rear spoiler, power sunroof and 4 spoke alloy wheels.The wagon was available in front-wheel drive; in 1985 a part-time four-wheel drive, operated by a push button on the dash, became available.[citation needed] The CRX HF joined the model lineup and used a CVCC head equipped EW series 1.5 liter engine, replacing the original CRX 1.3. In 1986, the Civic got flush-mounted headlights. The CRX Si was visually altered by body colored bumpers, new alloy wheels and a body colored rubber spoiler-now mounted on the back of the hatch as opposed to the top portion of the hatch. Also in 1986 an Si version of the Civic hatchback was introduced, featuring a pop-up glass sunroof, body colored bumpers and sedan-style disk wheel covers. This model came with the 1.5 L 12 valve fuel-injected engine from the CRX Si, generating 91 hp, and manual five-speed gearbox. In 1987, the four-wheel drive system on the wagon was changed; a new Real-Time four-wheel drive system featured an automatic viscous coupling that shifted power to the rear wheels automatically when needed. Real Time 4WD models are recognizable by the charcoal grey center covers, covering the lug nuts which were exposed on FWD models.[citation needed] In Europe the Sedan model was marketed as the Rover 213/216 and the Honda Ballade.

Civic DX 3-door
Honda Civic wagonFor 1988, the car's wheelbase was increased to 98.4 inches (250 cm). The body was redesigned with a lower hood line and more glass, giving less drag. The model range was fairly limited for the US, whereas the European and Japanese markets had a wider range. A 1500 cc 16-valve fuel injected engine giving 92 hp (68 kW) was used in the DX hatchback and sedan[citation needed], new LX sedan and the American market wagon. The Si and four-wheel drive wagons were powered by a 1.6 L 16-valve engine, rated at 108 hp (81 kW). The base hatchback had a 70 hp (52 kW) version of the same 8-valve engine. All engines sold in the US were fuel injected. Carbureted models were available elsewhere. All Civics had a double-wishbone suspension in the front and multi-link trailing arm suspension in the rear. In 1990, the EX trim was introduced. Four-wheel drive wagons had standard steel wheels (white steel wheels with matching center caps were optional), a 6-speed manual transmission (with a super-low gear left of first) or an optional 4-speed automatic. Four-wheel drive was also available on the sedan in some markets.[citation needed]

The base model of the 4th generation Civic had a 1.2 L SOHC, this single carbureted engine was not available for the European and American market. For Europe the base model was the 1.3 Luxe (23L and 23U for the Japanese market) 1.3 L SOHC single carbureted engine. Next engine was the 1.4 L which was not available in the USA and Japan.[citation needed] It was a 1.4 L SOHC dual carbureted engine that was available only in 1988 and 1989; (replaced by the 1.5i GL and GLX in 1990).

The 1.5 L SOHC engine came in a wide variety of models, dual-point injection, single carbureted and dual carbureted. Those engines were available in the JDM 25X and 25XT, USDM DX and the USDM STD model (USDM base model), EDM 1.5i GL and GLX (the only difference between EDM GL and GLX is a different standard equipment and a different FDR). The LX model offered over the base and DX models such accoutrements as power windows, power mirrors, power door locks, and cruise control.

Next in line was the 1.6 L SOHC. Simply 1.6i for the European market and Si for the American market (US top model). (not to be confused with the JDM Si, which is a (ZC) D16a8/9 1.6 L DOHC) Second highest model was the USDM Si. It was equipped with a 1.6 L SOHC (D16A6) engine and delivered 116 hp. The EDM 1.6i GT and 1.6i-16 (depends on country) had a ZC like 1.6 L DOHC engine and had a stock 124 hp (D16Z5) or 130 hp (D16A9, though these cars suffered from slight understeer they were brilliant in high speed corners. All DOHC engines are equipped with Honda's multi-point fuel injection system (although there seems to have been a 1.6 L DOHC non-VTEC with dual carburetors for the 4th generation).

Top model of the hatchback was the Japanese SiR with the 160 hp B16A engine. In Europe the SiR was called 1.6i-VT and had a similar B16A1 engine. These top models of the 4th generation Civic were one of the first Honda's that were equipped with the famous VTEC system (the NSX was the first, the JDM 1990 and 1991 Integra XSi and RSi also had a B16A). See the VTEC section for more info on the SiR and 1.6i-VT.

In 1990 the 4th generation Civic had a light facelift. Some things that changed were the front bumper design, the front corner lights no longer had the two screws on the outside, the gauge cluster cover shape slightly changed, tail light units design changed, and some USDM Civics received automatic seat belts. The seat pans and rails changed also, as well as the seats.

The fifth generation of the Civic had a more wedge-shaped body and the length was increased to 257 cm (101.3 inches) for the two-door hatchback and 262 cm (103.2 inches) for the four-door sedan. The wagon was also dropped for overseas markets, while the previous generation wagon continued in Japan. This generation of Civic used lightweight materials to create a fuel efficient economy car. In addition, the SI hatchback and coupe, ESi/EX (1.6L SOHC VTEC 125PS) also provoked to the popularity of (relatively) high performance 1.6L segment.

Trims

Civic sedan
Civic DX hatchbackCoupe: Trims available in the coupe body style (introduced in 1993) were the DX (EJ2), LX and EX (EJ1).
Hatchback: Trims available in the hatchback body style were the CX, DX, VX, (EH2) and Si (EH3). In the European Domestic Market (EDM) the trims available were the DX (EG3/1.3 L; 75 ps), LSi (EG4/1.5 L 90 ps), ESi (EG5/1.6 L SOHC VTEC 125 ps) and the ViRS (EG6/1.6 L DOHC VTEC 160 ps).
Sedan: Trims available in the sedan body style were the DX, LX (EG8) and EX (EG9) and VTi on the Japanese market.

The DX was the base model, equipped with manual windows, defroster and power brakes. The LX added AM/FM cassette player, optional cruise control, wheelcovers on 14 inch wheels, and power windows, locks and mirrors. Honda added air conditioning, a power sunroof, upgraded stereo and deluxe wheelcovers, but shared the same D15B7 non-VTEC powerplant (102HP) The SiR/VTi did not have power windows or locks.

The ViRS sedan, available only on the Japanese market, had bronze tinted windows, separate rear seats with headrests (similar to the Prelude coupe available at this time), a rear wiper and 5 spoke alloy wheels.

The wagon was discontinued in North America and most other export markets; in Japan the fourth-generation wagon continued without change. 1.3l, 75ps)

Engines
All DX and LX models used the D15B7 a 16 valve non-VTEC engine rated at 102 bhp and near 100 Ft/lb. torque. DX and LX models were aimed towards the economy conscious market. Most of the CX models had the D15B8 which is an 8 valve non-VTEC engine rated at 79 bhp and the VX had the D15Z1 (VTEC-E engine) capable of 90bhp. The EX and EX-V had the D16Z6 SOHC VTEC engine. The SiR was equipped with the 1.6L B16A with VTEC. In Europe the DX had the D13B2, LSi had the D15B2 (hatchback) and D15B7 (Sedan) , VEi had the D15Z1, ESi had the D16Z6 and VTi had the B16A2. D15B7 engines were available in the 1994-95 civic coupe LSi. In Japan and Europe, as well as a few other exports loactions, the VTi was offered in 2 motors: the B16a2/3 (160HP DOHC VTEC) and the D15B. (130 HP VTEC SOHC) The D15B shares the same head as the US Civic SI (D16Z6) but a unique block, crank, and rods. the car shard the 1.5L displacement of the other D15 blocks, but the rods were the same length as the D16's. Despite this, the crank and bearing sizes were not the same.

The 'Facelift' of 1994.
In 1994, the EG Civic saw some minor updates and changes, but the exterior remained much the same. In the UK, the EG civic gained Anti-Lock Brakes & Rear Brake Discs as standard, a larger 'one-piece' rear spoiler and colour coded front air ducts. The interior was changed from grey to a charcoal colour.

Trims and equipment
Coupe: Trims available in the coupe body style were the DX, HX, EX and Si (only 1999 and 2000) (designated as the EJ6/7/8 and EM1, respectively).
Hatchback: Trims available in the hatchback body style were the CX and the DX (EK2 and EK3).
Sedan: Trims available in the sedan body style were the DX, Value Package, Vi-RS (EK3)[not available USDM], LX (EJ6), EX (EJ8), GX (beginning in 1998) and Si (JDM).

1999-2000 Civic coupe(US)
2000 Civic hatchback (US)In 1999 the Civic had some updates for both the interior and exterior. The car received a face lift which included a new grille, new headlights, and a new front bumper and fenders and redesigned taillights. On the 1996 to 1998 sedans, the stop lights were on top of the reverse and turn lights, in 1999-2000 the reverse and turn lights were on top of the stop lights. For the coupe and hatchback the layouts remained as before; however, the rear turn signal lenses became clear/white instead of amber to match the reverse lights (the turn lights themselves remained amber). Inside the center console had a makeover. The sliding air system controls were replaced by rotary ones, which created free space.

The CX was the lightest and did not have features such as a sunroof, which made it even lighter. In Canada, the EX was called the Si and the Si was called the SiR.

The CX hatchback and all DX models with a manual transmission did not have power steering. DX models with automatic transmission did have power steering standard. DX models also did not come with options such as power locks and windows, cruise control, and sunroof. Value Package trims came with a CD player and remote entry system. The LX trim (sedan only) added the power windows and locks and cruise control while the EX trim added the sunroof. HX trim levels were specifically designed for better fuel efficiency and had features similar to LX sedans but without cruise control. Canadian SiR models included ABS brakes and heated mirrors which were not included on US Si models.

Special Edition (SE) models were available in various North American markets. 1996 coupes could be had in a rosewood color in limited production. This color was a common color outside North America, but was fairly rare to see in US models.

Most models had a standard AM/FM radio in the center dashboard with a backlit LCD display (except CX had no radio) but a slave cassette player or CD player was available through dealer-installed options and was installed in the forward portion of the console and was hidden from view when the cupholder was open. EX models had the slave cassette player standard. Dealers also offered AM/FM cassette and AM/FM CD decks to replace the stock radio. All vehicles were equipped with four speakers (except for the EX which included two extra tweeters located on the front doors), radio wiring (prep), and an antenna regardless of whether or not they had a radio.

The JDM Civic Si Sedan (known as Ferio) featured a 170ps Dohc Vtec engine, rear headrests, an Integra R style shift knob, unique seating fabric and wheelcovers that appeared on the 98-00 USDM Civic EX coupe. Other JDM Ferio models included a model with the RealTime 4wheel drive and a rear wiper in the back window of the sedan, which was not seen in other markets.

Two distinctly different wagons were made- the Orthia, based on the "regular" Civic sedan, for Japan, and a Domani-based model for Europe. Neither were offered in North America. A Domani based hatchback was also offered for sale in Europe alongside the regular Civic model from 1995-2001.

Engines
All CX, DX, Value Package, and LX models used the D16Y7. The HX had the D16Y5 and the EX had the D16Y8. The Si used the B16A2. In the UK, Europe, Australia and the Philippines, there were a number of sedans and aerodecks produced with the B18C4.

Transmissions
Most models (DX, LX, EX, Si) were available with a standard 5-speed manual transmission with a hydraulic clutch, or an optional 4-speed automatic transmission. The HX model was offered with the 5-speed manual or a CVT Continuously Variable Transmission which offered three driving ranges, D (for normal driving), S (for spirited driving with higher engine speeds), and L (to keep the engine running as low a speed as possible). The conventional 4-speed automatic was not available on the HX model. The automatic transmission on the Honda has become very problematic since 2001. The company was forced to extend its warranty due to the high number of low mileage failures.


Canada Si and SiR
In 1996, Honda Canada called the American Ex version an Si, while calling the American Si the SiR in Canada. There was a change that occurred in this model from 1998 to 1999. The front bumper was altered to give two in-slots, which allowed customization to fit fog lights. The tail lights also changed to two pieces of red and white lights instead of the yellow, red and white. The exterior paint was also changed, giving the newer models much shinier complexions. Many of the Si and SiR from 1999 to 2000 featured high tip wings, though low tip wings were also common.


Asian SiRII
From 1996 to 2000, Honda produced Civic SiRII which came with a B16A engine, but it was only available in Asian market. This engine produced [email protected] with a displacement of 1595 cm³


Asian Type-R
There was also a 185HP Type-R Civic, that was only available in a Hatchback and 5 speed manual with LSD. This model was equipped with a very powerful B16B (AKA PCT), which is essentially a destroked version of the Integra Type-R B18C5 Powerplant.

The Civic was redesigned in 2001, retaining exterior dimensions but increasing significantly in interior space. There was now a flat rear floor, giving better comfort to the rear seat passengers. A 115 hp engine now powered the Non-EX or Si Civic up 9 from the previous model's 106. Power in the EX remained at 127 but all non Si engines have been stroked to 1.7 liters.


2004-2005 Honda Civic LX coupe (US)For 2004, Civic was given a facelifted front end with new headlights, bumper, and grille. The tail lights remained the same but when illuminated created a circle.

The hybrid version became available in 2003, which used both a small 1.3 L main gasoline engine and auxiliary electric motors. The electric motors are powered by a battery array which is charged by regenerative braking during deceleration, which reduces exhaust emissions and extends fuel mileage.

The new Sport Hatchback model with futuristic styling was unveiled in August 2005 for the European market only. This model featured from launch a 1.4 L I-DSI and a 1.8 L i-VTEC rated at 83 PS (81 hp/61 kW) and 140 PS (138 hp/103 kW) respectively, with 177 and 207 km/h (110 and 129 mph) top speeds and 14.2 and 13.6 s 0-100 km/h sprint. The Sport Hatchback is also available with a 2.2 L I-CTDI diesel engine from the Accord, Edix/FR-V and CR-V, rated at 140 PS (138 hp/103 kW) and is capable of 205 km/h (127 mph) and accelerating from 0-60 mph in 8.4 seconds.


Trims
Coupe: Trims available in the coupe body style were the DX (up to 2003), EX, HX and LX (EM2). Hatchback: The Si (EP3), marketed as the SiR in Canada, was the only hatchback of its generation sold in North America. Sedan: Trims available in the sedan body style were the DX, EX, GX and LX (ES1/2, EN2, ES1, respectively). EX trim includes sunroof, ABS, larger 15 inch wheels and a more powerful engine (see below). For the Canadian market, there were different models, up until 2003, there were DX and LX models on both Sedan's and Coupes, with the Coupes having the SI trim as well. In 2003, there was also the addition of a 30th Anniversary Edition of all models, as well as a Sport model for Sedans. For 2004, the DX model was replaced by a Special Edition model and the previous Sport model was replaced by a LX-g trim, also, the inclusion of a SI Sedan trim occurred, which gave the sedan the coupe SI's engine, new wheels, new seats and Carbon Fiber trim pieces on the interior.


Engines
Most DX and LX models had the D17A1. The HX had the D17A6 and the EX had the D17A2. The Si had the K20A3. The GX runs on CNG. The Philippine version of the Honda Civic 7th gen also used the VTEC3 mechanism for their VTi/VTi-S/RS civics,equipped with a D17A6 and not the 1.6L D16W7 engine as stated in their brochure to lower the Philippine duties on importation.

The Civic underwent a redesign in 2006. In many countries (USA, UK, New Zealand), all models (including the base model) come standard with ABS and side and curtain airbags. Additionally, the 2006 models acquired ULEV-2 (Ultra Low Emission Vehicle) certification and boast a more powerful 1.8 litre engine than the 2005 counterparts while retaining almost equal fuel economy. In the North American market, the sedan, coupe, sedan Si (in Canada as the Acura CSX Type-S), coupe Si, and Hybrid models are available. An Si sedan began manufacture for the 2007 model year. The sedan and coupe are available in three trims (DX, LX, EX); however, the Civic Si and Hybrid are sold with relatively few options (such as a navigation system, automatic day/night compass mirrors, and wheel locks). The 2008 model brought some new features and an Si Sedan to Canada.


Trims and models
The base DX model is equipped with LATCH, immobilizer theft-deterrent system, power windows, daytime running lights (DRL), 15-inch wheels with covers, driver's seat height adjustment, and other features (All Canadian sold Civics have the 160 watt stereo system) The DX-G model sold in Canada adds 15-inch lightweight alloy wheels (from the Hybrid model), air conditioning, auxiliary input jack for portable audio players, power door locks, remote keyless entry and storage console armrest. A hidden antenna was still embedded despite not having a radio.

The LX model adds a 160 watt 4-speaker stereo system (Canadian model is a 4-speaker as well), air conditioning, 16-inch wheels with covers (alloy wheels in Canadian LX models), cruise control, MP3/audio jack, passenger side walk in with memory (coupe only), floor mats, security system with remote entry and Canadian sold models (except for DX) include heated exterior mirrors.


Honda Civic Hybrid used for parking enforcement in Chinatown, Los AngelesThe EX model adds a moonroof, 4-wheel disc brakes, 16-inch alloy wheels, an additional 12-volt accessory outlet (for a total of two), a 350 watt stereo system with six speakers (coupe only, the sedan EX comes with a 160 watt stereo system), exterior temperature indicator, a foldable rear arm rest with integrated cupholders (sedan only), and an optional voice-activated navigation system.

The EX-L model adds a leather interior with heated front seats, heated exterior mirrors (adds to US EX, standard on Canadian LX, EX), a leather steering wheel and a center console.

All coupes come standard with a rear lip-spoiler and EX models (only) have round chrome finish on the exhaust pipe. Coupes are intended to be sportier than their sedan counterparts and cost US$200 less in the US and CDN$200 more in Canada at base MSRP. It should be noted that the EX model of both the coupe and sedan have slightly less interior space (because of the moon-roof, which takes up head-room) than their DX and LX counterparts. MSRP is US$14,810 (CD$18,881) for the DX manual coupe to approximately US$21,000 for the Si models.

The Honda Civic GX is similar to an LX that has been manufactured to run on CNG (Compressed Natural Gas). Due to the limitations of the CNG tanks, the 6-speaker stereo system is not installed.

Only a continuously variable transmission (CVT) is offered for the 2006 Honda Civic Hybrid, which gains more power and a mileage boost to an EPA estimated 40/45 mpg (city/highway). It achieves an AT-PZEV emission rating. The 1.3L L13A i-DSI engine (in EDM marketed as 1,4L engine) has been upgraded to achieve 95HP, instead of 83HP in earlier model. Accompanied by the electric engine with 15kW (20HP) which gives in total 115HP for the Hybrid vehicle. Top speed is rated at 186km/h (116mph), CO2 emission is 109g/km and the mass of the car is 1386kg - not much for a car equipped with IMA electric motor & Nickel-metal hybrid batteries (5,5Ah, 158V).


Worldwide distribution

JDM, Asia (except Mainland China), Australia, and South Africa
8th generation JDM Civic

See also: Acura CSX
For the JDM (Japanese Domestic Market), South Korean, Taiwan, Indian, Pakistani, ASEAN, Middle Eastern, Australasian, and South African markets, the new Civic has slight but noticeable styling differences from the American version. However, the JDM-styling is available in Canada as the Acura CSX. While the arcing line sweeping across the front fascia is retained, the main headlights dip away from the main arc for a more sporty appearance. The front bumper also has more vents with a steeper angle and sharper corners than the USDM Civic. Meanwhile, the taillights, which in the USDM Civic resemble those of an Audi A4, are more reminiscent of the Integra, with the main round brake lights dipping slightly down into the indicators. On the interior side, the JDM/Asian Civic will have contrasting two tone colour scheme. The three-spoke steering wheel from the USDM Civic Si and the European hatchback is standard. Engines include a 1.8 litre SOHC i-VTEC engine that produces 140 bhp at 6300 rpm and a 2.0 litre DOHC i-VTEC(K20Z2) engine that produces 155 bhp at 6200 rpm, both are mated to either a 5-speed manual or 5-speed automatic (with paddle shifting available on the 2.0 L model) with drive by wire throttles. There is a 1.6 litre variant available only in Singapore and Egypt to enter the cheaper Cat. A (1,600 cc and below) vehicles in the vehicle numbers curbing system in Singapore, while maintaining a higher standard than the 1.3 L variant. It uses an SOHC i-VTEC engine, similar to that of the 1.8 litre variant. It produces 125 bhp at 6200 rpm. A hybrid version is also available. In Israel, South Africa and Republic of Ireland, both the 4-door JDM/Asian and 5-door European Civic models are available.


Europe
8th generation European Civic

The European Civic (FN chassis) has a different appearance and is offered primarily as 5-door and 3-door hatchbacks. In the UK, the only sedan available is the Hybrid version. However, in other markets where sedans are more popular (such as Ireland and Finland), a range of sedans similar to the JDM models are available.

The European Civic is built in Swindon, UK.

Mechanically, the European Civic differs from the USDM and JDM variants in that it uses a simpler torsion beam suspension system for the rear wheels compared to the double-wishbone system in the USDM and JDM Civics. This change happened in this generation to allow the car to keep its large interior space, and actually reduce the length of the outgoing model Civic. Externally, the European model is the most aggressively styled; the sweeping front arc is maintained and a perspex cover resembling a lamp cluster replaces the grille. The rear tail lights are also similarly styled. Triangular accents are found front and back, with triangular fog-lamps in front and dual triangle exhaust tips at the back. The rear backglass is split into two levels, divided by a spoiler lip and the fuel filler cap is a race-inspired exposed metal effect cap. For the 5-door models, the rear door is hidden away, with the door handles tucked away at the corners of the rear windows, creating the illusion of a 2-door coupe. Inside, the European Civic follows the same split-level theme, but with circular A/C vents and switchgear. There is also a start button reminiscent of the Honda S2000. The handbrake is in a more conventional position behind the shift lever. All around there is a generous use of metallic trim. Engines include a 1.4 litre i-DSI, the 1.8 litre i-VTEC shared with the USDM and JDM models as well as a 2.2 litre i-CTDi turbodiesel. A 6-speed manual transmission is available across the range. An automated manual transmission, known as I-SHIFT is available for models with 1.8 litre petrol engines. A 2.0 litre i-VTEC petrol Type-R high performance version is also available.

Some other features of the European Civic include "magic seats" in the rear, that not only lay flat to increase boot capacity, but also allow the seat bench to lift up and lay flat against the back rests to create a large loading area in the back behind the front seats. There is also a "hidden" storage compartment in the boot under the floor. The lid, which normally forms part of the boot floor, can be sunk down to a lower level to increase the load area, designed to allow the boot area accommodate larger or taller items. In the normal position, the storage area can be used to hide valuables away under the floor. Some models in the range feature things like electric folding mirrors, a digital speedometer display, a panoramic glass roof, and automatic headlights and windshield wipers. The range topping EX model also has DVD satellite navigation, and allows the car's entertainment system, climate control, navigation system and hands-free telephone system to be controlled all by voice commands.

The five-door European-market Civic hatchback is also marketed in Israel and South Africa. Conversely, in certain European markets such as the UK, the four-door JDM Civic is available with the hybrid powertrain; and in some Eastern European countries it is available with the 1.8 L i-VTEC.

In March 2008 Honda announced that it was recalling 79,000 eighth generation Civics due to a potential problem with faulty handbrakes.[3]


North America
8th generation North American Civic

The 8th Generation Civic features a new "two-tier" instrument panel. Digital speedometer, coolant temperature, and fuel are displayed at the top, while the lower tier displays the tachometer. The brightness on these displays can be adjusted. The Civic Si changes the backlight from blue to red, while the Hybrid features IMA Assist and Charge indicators on its display.

The North American market Civic Si is a special trim level designed to offer a sportier experience than the standard Civic. It offers a more powerful engine, 6-speed manual transmission, sport seats, and different styling. The engine is a variant of the Honda K engine: a 2.0-liter, DOHC four-cylinder design with Honda's i-VTEC variable valve timing system. It produces 197 hp (197 PS/147 kW), 57 more than the Civic sedan. A 350 Watt, 7-speaker sound system, including subwoofer, is also included along with a helical limited-slip differential, close ratio 6-speed gearbox, upgraded brakes, 17" model-specific alloy wheels with available Michelin summer tires, leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, aluminum racing pedals, fabric and special details on interior of doors and unique Si cloth seats finished with a tasteful tuner-style rear wing and red backlit gauges and ambient lighting. The Civic Si coupe debuted a few months after the initial launch of the 2006 models, with the Civic Si sedan following in 2007 (2008 in Canada). Beginning with the 2007 US Civic Si, VSA (Vehicle Stability Assist) has been offered.

In the fall of 2007, a slight variant on the standard Si sedan model, the Honda Civic Mugen Si sedan (2008), was introduced. While Mugen Motorsports is known for its performance heritage, the Mugen Si project is more concerned with cosmetic alterations to the standard Si. Honda has announced that a total of 1000 Mugen Si cars will be produced for the U.S. domestic market (USDM),[4] and lists the following as "exclusive standard features" of the car:

Twin-Ring Motegi track-tuned suspension
Aerodynamic body styling
"Cat-back" sports exhaust system
Highly aggressive spring and damper tuning
Mugen –forged aluminum wheels measure 18 x 7.5 inches
High-grip summer tires (215/40R18)
Front spoiler and sports grille
Side spoilers
Rear diffuser
Adjustable rear wing
Improved exhaust that boosts horsepower to 202 (from the Si's 197)
All Civics (including their trims) have unique covers/wheels specific to their car and come standard with cloth seats. For the 2008 model year, Honda added the EX-L trim level, which adds heated leather and side mirrors along with a leather wrapped steering wheel to the EX trim level. The rest of the Americas receive the North American-market Civic sedan (and coupe in some countries).


Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay and Chile
For the Brazilian market, the eighth generation Civic is available only with a sedan body, and it is externally almost identical to the USDM version, having different bumpers and a higher ground clearance. It is available in two trim levels. The LXS and EXS levels are equipped with the 1.8 L i-VTEC SOHC engine generating 140 ps at 6300 rpm. Both models might be equipped with a 5-speed manual or a 5-speed automatic transmission, but only the EXS has the paddle shift controls on the steering wheel. A special trim level for handicapped indivduals (LX), based on the LXS, was available in the first year but due to some changes in tax-break laws it's no longer available. It was equipped with automatic transmission and limited to 125 ps. The 2006 Civic received the "Best Buy" award from Quatro Rodas magazine, the most prestigious car magazine in the country. The recommended prices for 2006 Civics in Brazil range from R$61,745.00 to 80,750.00, but due to high demand, new Civics are being sold for about 10% more than the recommended price. The Si sedan was announced at Salão do Automóvel in São Paulo, featuring a 2.0 L i-VTEC DOHC at 192 PS (143 kW) (195 PS or 145 kW when using premium unleaded gasoline). For the 2007 model, Honda introduced a new Flexible Fuel version, featuring the same 1.8 L engine, having 140 PS (103 kW) when running only on ethanol or 138 PS (101 kW) when running on gasoline. Argentina, Uruguay , Perú and Chile also receives the Brazilian models. The price ranges from US$35,000 to $40,000 (Argentina) and from $10.500.000 to $19.900.000 (Chile).


Mainland China
Dongfeng Honda Automobile, one of Honda's joint ventures in China, assembles and markets the Civic in China. Its exterior is the same as the North American-market Civic, except with amber tail turnlights and only the sedan model is available.


Type R
Honda debuted a Type R concept for the European Civic at the 2006 Geneva Motor Show; the Type R has a 2.0 litre 201 bhp (150 kW) at 7800 rpm I4. The suspension uses McPherson struts up front and a torsion beam in the back, while the car itself was initially thought to be lighter than the standard Civic as dictated by Honda Type R philosophy. Sophisticated handling aids such as traction control were initially thought to be completely eschewed for a purer, more soulful driving character. In the end, Honda did include a special version of their VSA (Vehicle Stability Assist) that was specifically tuned to the car so as to better adhere to said philosophy. The Type R went on sale in the UK in February or March 2007, and is scheduled to reach Australia in July the same year. The European Civic Type R also went on sale in Brunei.

The JDM/ASIAN(ex. China) market 4-door Civic Type R went on sale on March 29, 2007. The Type R powered by an uprated K20A 2.0 litre iVTEC engine producing 225 PS (165 kW) at 8000 rpm (Available in Japan and Malaysia only), while the other JDM markets have 201 bhp (150 kW) at 7800 rpm and comes with a specially tuned sports suspension that includes new Brembo brakes. The prototype Type R was used as the official car of the Formula 1 2006 Japanese Grand Prix. This will mark the first time that Honda will produce two separate distinct Civic Type R models.

Mugen's Civic RR which is the Type R sedans uprated model is available in Japan. The Mugen RR sheds an additional 10kg (22 lbs) off the standard Civic Type R's weight, coming in at 2733 lbs. In addition to the weight loss, the freer-breathing Mugen RR picks up 15 horsepower over the regular Type R. It's rated at 240 horses at 8,000 rpm and 160 lb-ft at 7,000 rpm.

Complementing the added power and decreased weight are a new bodykit, upgraded brakes all around, a retuned suspension, new wheels and tires, and logo-emblazoned Recaro sport buckets. Availability is limited to 300 cars, all in the Milan Red finish shown, and the pricing in Japan has been set at ¥4,777,500 ($38,750 USD).

Mugen's official website has a video of the car lapping Japan's Tsukuba circuit in 1:06:68.


Civic Si
Main article: Honda Civic Si
The Si is a sporty version of the Civic sold in the US market. Initially the Si trim level denoted the highest trim level and was used internationally. Each generation offers more powerful engines, stiffer suspension settings, and exclusive cosmetic changes to differentiate it from the other trim levels.

For the 2008 model year, the Si sedan will be available in Canada and the United States (actually introduced in 2007) for the first time. A Special Edition, tuned by Mugen, is available with sport tuned suspension and an aggressive bodykit.


International marketing
While the Civic is sold in largely the same form worldwide, differences in the name of the models exist between markets. In Japan, the hatchback Civic is just called "Civic" while the sedan model was called the "Civic Ferio" during the fifth and sixth generation. The sixth-generation sedan was also sold as the Integra SJ. In Europe and the United States, "Civic" generically refers to any model, though in Europe the coupe is branded the "Civic Coupe". A four-door station wagon model called the Civic Shuttle (also Civic Pro in Japan) was available from 1984 until 1991 (this brand name would later be revived for the mid-1990s Honda Shuttle people carrier, known in some markets as the Honda Stream). In South Africa, the sedan (the only model sold there until the 1996 launch of the sixth generation sedan and hatch) was known as the "Ballade".

Other models have been built off the Civic platform, including the Ballade, the CR-X, Quint, Concerto, Domani, CR-X Del Sol, and the Integra. Also, at various times, the Civic or Civic-derived models have been sold by marques other than Honda — for example, Rover sold the 200, 400 and 45, each of which were Civic-based at some point (first 200s were the second generation Ballade; from 1990 the 200 and 400 were based on the Concerto; the 400 was the 1995 Domani), as was their predecessor, the Triumph Acclaim, based on the first Honda Ballade. The Honda Domani, an upscale model based on the Civic, was sold as the Isuzu Gemini in Japan (1992-2000), and confusingly the 5-door Domani was sold as the Honda Civic (along with the "real" hatchback and sedan Civics) in Europe from 1995 to 2000. In Thailand, the sixth generation Civic was available as the four-door Isuzu Vertex. The sixth-generation station wagon was sold as the Honda Orthia, with the Partner as the downmarket commercial variant. The seventh generation minivan model is called the Honda Stream. In Canada, the sixth and seventh generation Civics were mildly redesigned to create the Acura EL until the advent of the eight generation Civic, which was used to create the Acura CSX.

The three-door hatchback body style has been somewhat unpopular in the United States, but has achieved wide acceptance in Canada, as well as popularity in Japan and European markets, helping cement Honda's reputation as a maker of sporty compact models. Starting in 2002, the Civic three-door hatchback has been built exclusively at Honda's manufacturing plant in Swindon, England - previously the five-door "Civic"/Domani and the Civic Aerodeck (based on the Japanese Orthia) were built in this plant for sale in Europe along with the Japanese EK-series Civics. Accordingly, all instances of the current model (left or right hand drive, anywhere in the world) are British-made cars designed with Japanese engineering, except for the US-built two-door coupe and the sedan version built in Brazil for the Latin American market.

In North America, the Civic hatchback was dropped for 2006. The 2006 model year standard Civics for North America are manufactured in Alliston, Ontario, Canada (sedans, coupes and Si Coupes) and East Liberty, Ohio (sedans), while the Hybrid version is manufactured in Japan.

In Asia, the oldest Honda assembly/manufacturing facility is near Lahore, Pakistan and the Civic has been produced in large numbers since 1994. The 2006 Civic was launched in the local market with a firm view of exporting this model to other countries by 2007. In India, the Civic sedan was launched in July 2006 for the first time.

In Brazil, although being considered for local manufacturing since the early 1980s (it was illegal to import cars in Brazil from 1973 until 1990), the Civic wasn't available until 1992, via official importing. In 1997, production of the sixth generation Civic sedan started in the Sumaré (a city near Campinas, in the state of São Paulo) factory. The only differences between the Japanese model and the Brazilian model were a slightly higher ground clearance, due to the country's road conditions and adaptations to make the engine suitable to Brazilian commercial gasoline, which contains about 25% ethanol. The seventh generation production started in 2001, displacing the Chevrolet Vectra from the top sales record for the mid-size sedan segment, however it lost that position to the Toyota Corolla the following year. In 2006, the eighth generation was released and regained the sales leadership.
