Honda said that the new Civic is priced from $15,605 (EUR10,770) including a $750 (EUR520) destination charge. The 2012 model now has more interior space and it also got an improved chassis that is more responsive.

Its fuel economy rating has been improved and it’s possible that a new natural gas model will be available throughout the world. A base Civic DX coupe with a five-speed manual transmission and no radio or air conditioning has a starting price of $15,805 (EUR10,900). The Civic LX sedan will be priced from $17,855 (EUR12,300), while the Civic HF sedan is priced from $19,455 (EUR13,400) and has been fitted with the five-speed automatic transmission as standard.

On the other hand, the environmentally conscious visitors can opt for the four-door only Civic Hybrid sedan that’s priced from $24,050 (EUR16,570). To put in items like leather trim, navigation and XM Satellite Radio on your Civic Hybrid sedan, the fan must be ready to shell out $26,750 (EUR18,430). The 2012 Honda Civic HF, Sedan, Coupe and Natural Gas models use a 1.8-liter i-VTEC engine that can deliver 140 hp.

The transmission is a five-speed automatic that enables the Coupe and Sedan versions to attain an mpg level of 39 miles (6.0 L/100 km) on the highway. Meanwhile, the Natural Gas model has a 42 mpg figure (5.6 L/100 km). The 2012 Honda Civic Si Coupe and Sedan are powered by a 2.4-liter i-VTEC engine that has an output of 200 hp and 170 lb-ft (230 Nm) of torque. Its transmission is a new six-speed manual transmission and on the highway, its fuel efficiency is 31 mpg (7,6 L/100 km).

The 2012 Honda Civic Hybrid is expected to gain some miles with regards to fuel efficiency. The model has a combined 44 mpg (5.3 L/100 km) rating due to the new 1.5-liter i-VTEC engine and the lithium-ion batteries. Its output is 110 hp and its transmission is a continuously variable transmission (CVT). Honda has yet to officially provide the prices for its natural gas-fueled model that will be launched on the market later this year.
