Honda has debuted the latest generation Civic at the New York Motor Show, with a mildly revised design and focus on fuel economy

The new Civic line-up will have a series of models designed for maximum fuel efficiency, at least in the United States. These include the new Civic Hybrid, the Civic Natural Gas model which runs on Compressed Natural Gas (CNG), and the Civic HF, which stands for High Efficiency. 'Standard' Civic models include the Civic Sedan and Coupe, and the high performance Civic Si Sedan and Coupe models.

The standard Civic models are powered by a 1.8-litre i-VTEC engine which produces 140bhp and 173Nm of torque. The performance Civic Si models meanwhile has a 2.4-litre i-VTEC unit which has 201bhp and 230Nm of torque, and comes with a six-speed manual transmission and a standard limited-slip differential.

As for the fuel-efficient models, the Civic Natural Gas variant uses the same 1.8-litre i-VTEC engine as the standard Civic, and produces 110bhp. The Civic Hybrid meanwhile, has a 1.5-litre petrol engine mated to Honda's Integrated Motor Assist system, which has been revised to use lithium-ion batteries. The Civic Hybrid now produces a total of 110bhp and 172Nm of torque when combined with the electric motor.

Among the features available as standard on the new Civic include a 5-inch LCD "Intelligent" Multi-Information Display (i-MID), the Eco Assist technology that helps achieve a more efficient vehicle operation and the new Motion Adaptive Electronic Power Steering System.
