Default Civic: All-New 2012 Honda Civic Makes World Debut at New York International Auto Show

Honda



The entire 2012 Honda Civic lineup is making its highly anticipated world debut today at the 2011 New York International Auto Show. The conventional gasoline-powered Civic Sedan and Civic Coupe, high-performance Civic Si Coupe, gasoline-electric Civic Hybrid, Civic Natural Gas and Civic HF, an all-new high fuel economy model are being shown publicly for the first time.


"The all-new Civic builds on the popularity of the previous generation with a complete technology makeover, higher level of refinement and style while improving its position as an excellent value," said John Mendel, executive vice president of sales for American Honda Motor Co., Inc. "The Civic offers the most diverse model lineup in the industry to best meet the needs and preferences of individual customers."


In addition to debuting at the New York International Auto Show, the Civic went on-sale today at Honda dealerships nationwide. The base model Civic DX Coupe manufacturer's suggested retail price1 (MSRP) starts at $15,605, which is unchanged from the outgoing model. This value-oriented pricing continues across the lineup with navigation-equipped models priced less than the previous-generation model.


For 2012, all existing Civic models achieve higher EPA fuel-economy ratings2 compared to the 2011 models, up by as much as 8 percent on the highway in Civic Sedans and Coupes equipped with automatic transmissions.


The Civic Hybrid achieves an EPA-estimated fuel economy rating2 of 44 mpg city, 44 mpg highway and 44 mpg city/highway combined, making it the most fuel-efficient sedan currently available in the U.S. The Civic Hybrid also introduces the latest generation of the Integrated Motor Assist (IMAŽ) system - now with a lithium-ion battery for the first time on a Honda hybrid vehicle. Additionally, an entirely new model, the Civic HF, debuts as a value-oriented, high fuel-economy sedan with an EPA estimated highway fuel economy rating2 of 41 mpg, the highest for a conventional, gasoline-powered vehicle with an automatic transmission.


The 2012 Civic will be offered with several new technologies and features including a 5-inch LCD "intelligent" Multi-Information Display (i-MID), which provides access to multiple customizable features. Additionally, all new Civic models except the Civic Si, receive Eco Assist? technology, an innovation that can enhance efficient vehicle operation while providing feedback to promote more-efficient individual driving styles.


Safety on the Civic remains a top priority and the new model features a wide variety of standard equipment including Honda's exclusive Advanced Compatibility Engineering? (ACE?) body structure for enhanced frontal collision energy management and vehicle-to-vehicle frontal crash compatibility. Standard safety equipment includes VSAŽ that integrates with the new Motion Adaptive Electric Power Steering (EPS) system; dual-stage, multiple-threshold front airbags; front side airbags with occupant position detection system (OPDS); side curtain airbags; and a 4-channel anti-lock braking system (ABS) with Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist. The 2012 Civic is anticipated to score well in both the federal government's New Car Assessment Program3 (NCAP) and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety4 (IIHS) vehicle evaluations


Currently, more than 95 percent of all Civics sold in the U.S. are built 5 in North America at manufacturing facilities in either Greensburg, Indiana or Alliston, Ontario in Canada.
