The new Honda Civic tops the medium hatchback category and represents the best value for money in the Parkers Cost of Motoring New Car Awards 2012.

Kieren Puffett, Editor of Parkers said “the medium hatchback category is a hugely competitive market so to have a winner here is truly a tremendous achievement and that is why we are not only delighted to announce that the Honda Civic Hatchback 1.4 i-VTEC SE five door wins the Parkers Cost of Motoring New Car Awards for the Medium Hatchback category, but is also the overall winner.

There are four trim levels offered; the SE, ES, EX and EX GT. Every new Honda Civic comes with Idle Stop fuel-saving technology (manual transmission only) and an ECON switch for the first time. The ECON switch is already found in the Honda Insight and the Honda Jazz Hybrid and activating it tells the car’s management system to adopt specific settings to improve fuel consumption.

Standard equipment includes Honda’s Intelligent Multi-Information Display (i-MID) 5-inch dashboard screen which displays relevant driving details such as mpg, the idle stop status and climate and audio settings. Other additions include a rear wiper, daytime running lights and a headlight-off timer that maintains illumination for 15 seconds after the car is locked.
