Irish Motor Journalists have just voted the new Honda Civic as Irish Compact Car of the Year 2018 and also bestowed the brand with the Best Innovator award for Honda’s Suite of Safety features, Honda Sensing.
In accepting the award, John Saunders, Sales and Marketing Director of Universal Honda Ltd. expressed his delight, saying: “We are thrilled with winning not only the coveted Compact Family Car of the year but also taking away the best innovator award for Honda Sensing which really cements Civic as one of the safest cars in its class. 2017 has been a great year for Honda and we really look forward to 2018 with the arrival of new members of the Civic family”.
The Honda Civic is available across the dealer network in a choice of two all-new VTEC TURBO petrol engines, a 127bhp and 180bhp. A suite of advanced safety and driver-assistance technologies specified as standard across the range called Honda Sensing ensures the car is among the very safest in its class.
The Civic range will be expanded further with the arrival of the Civic Diesel and TYPE R in January and the 4DR Saloon at the end of next summer.
