New Honda Civic coming in 2011

Article by Christian A., on August 30, 2010

According to the latest reports, the next-generation of the Honda Civic will be officially unveiled in 2010 and expected by the dealers in 2011. Like the current version, the new vehicle will be available in two versions, with 3 or 5 doors. The new generation will use petrol and diesel engines but will also offer a hybrid version, powered by a 1.5-liter petrol engine with 150 hp.

Later, the Type-R version will come showing more than 200 hp.For those who don’t know, the current Honda Civic Hybrid is powered by a 1.3L i-VTEC 4-cylinder, mated to electric motors.

However, it appears that the next-generation will use the same hybrid powertrain found on the 2011 Honda CR-Z. The CR-Z uses a 1.5-liter i VTEC 4-cylinder engine which delivers 102 hp and an electric motor capable to deliver 20 hp. 

The total output delivered by the car is 122 hp and 128 lb-ft. of torque at 1,000 to 1,500 rpm (123 lb-ft on CVT-equipped models).

The new Civic Hybrid could also be the first car in the Honda lineup to receive the rumored, next-generation lithium ion batteries.

Sources confirmed the fact that Honda is currently working on new lithium ion batteries, but we will know for sure after the Japanese manufacturer will release some official details regarding the new car.

Honda has made sure that each generation of the Civic continues to showcase improvements. This is because the brand follows a specific development theme. Its 2011 Civic for example follows the basic principle of creating a "futuristic and distinctive compact."

With this objective, the brand hopes to initiate new values that go beyond the present-day needs and advance the experience that the Civic has long symbolized. Significant changes include a number of improvements like increasing the fuel economy for all its models.

Interactive technologies were added to have better personalization and enhanced convenience. Improvements were also done to the performance and ride and even the interior packaging. Customers who choose the Civic are drivers who belong to a wide range of spectrum.

These can include those who just graduated from high school and college students, essentially people who are just starting their adult lives. It can also be families that have young children or babies. Civic customers are teachers, professors, soccer moms, young professionals, environmentalists, and driving fans.

As such they can be baby boomers, from the Generation Y, and even retirees. These same customers live in the Sunbelt states, Snow Belt states, the Midwest, Hawaii, and even as far as Alaska.

Regardless of where they are from or what age group they belong to, there is one thing that is common to all of them: everyone is young at heart. While the different characteristics like comfort, durability, safety, and style make the Civic the top choice, customers also choose it because it is fun to drive.
