A Girl’s Best Friend

Written by Lee McKenzie McKinnon on . Posted in News

There are people out there who don’t believe that cars are chicks cars and guy cars. Normally we would not categorize models into his and hers but the Honda Civic Hatch is really one of those that can now be called a girls car. The Honda Civic Hatch has recently been awarded the Women’s World Car of the Year award for 2012. Introduced for the first time in 2009, the Women’s World Car of the Year awards program recognises the power and influence of female car purchasers worldwide. Members of the 2012 judging panel presented the award to Toshiaki Konaka, Director Honda Motor Europe Car Division on the Honda stand at the Paris Motor Show. “This award highlights the unique exterior styling and practical interior that are synonymous with the Civic [Hatch],” said Mr. Konaka. The Women’s World Car of the Year judging panel is comprised of female motoring writers from 12 countries including two from Australia. Finalists are selected from an initial entry list of 300 cars and assessed according to criteria women consider when buying a car; safety, value-for-money, aesthetic appearance, storage space, ease-of-driving, colour, sex appeal, environmental footprint and child friendliness. Awards are divided into four categories; Family Car, Luxury Car, Sports Car and Economy Car. The Honda Civic Hatch was chosen as the winner for the Economy Car category.   Launched recently in Australia, the Honda Civic Hatch blends European styling with amazing versatility; from its ‘Magic Seats’ that fold 18 different ways, to its intelligent Multi-Information Display and huge interior space. These features are all underpinned by a five-star ANCAP safety rating and increased fuel efficiency.   

Honda’s Civic Hatches

Written by Lee McKenzie McKinnon on . Posted in News

Honda’s all-new Civic Hatch has made it to Australia and is in dealerships around the country. The development period for the new Civic Hatch spanned four years. Nearly all components are new or have been further developed with four areas being targeted. The suspension set-up was improved in better the ride and handling. Fluid-filled compliance bushings for superior damping are included in the rear suspension. A H-Beam Trailing Arm with even higher rigidity than the predecessor Civic Type R improves the road stability. Interior materials were looked at and worked over to improve the overall interior quality. New styling and aerodynamics for a refreshed image and improved efficiency and the engine for improved performance and reduced CO emissions. Overall, the new Civic Hatch builds on the core strengths of its predecessor and takes them to a higher level. The Civic Hatch is available in two variants; the VTi-S and the VTi-L. Both variants will now feature an improved 1.8 litre four cylinder i-VTEC engine that delivers maximum power of 104kW at 6500rpm and 174Nm of torque at 4300rpm.  Fuel economy is starting to really play a major role in people’s decisions when looking at buying a new car. The all-new Civic Hatch has a combined fuel usage of 6.1l/100kms for the manual and 6.5l/100kms for the automatic. A strong feature list comes with the new Civic and includes heated power door mirrors with LED turn indicators, LED daytime running lights, Honda’s unique Magic Seats, an intelligent multi-information display (i-MID), Honda’s Eco Assist system and Econ Mode as well as power windows.  Offering new touch point surface materials that are used throughout give the Civic Hatch improved quality feel. The VTi-L has a premium audio system with seven speakers including tweeters and sub-woofer that also includes USB connectivity, iPod integration, auxiliary jack and Speed-sensitive Volume Control (SVC). Also on the inside there are power windows with remote operation via key fob (down on VTi-S and up/down on VTi-L) and a multi-array microphone for Bluetooth system (VTi-L only). The outside sees a lower and wider aerodynamic monoform profile, a new brake and indicator light cluster design which seamlessly unifies all surfaces including the wheel arches and body. The all-new Civic Hatch achieves a five-star ANCAP safety rating and features six airbags (front, side and full length curtain), Honda’s Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure, Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD), Hill Start Assist, Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) with traction control, Honda’s G-Con technology, tyre deflation warning system and a reversing camera for the VTi-L (displayed in the Intelligent Multi-information Display).  To help improve visibility of this new look car Honda have included LED day time running lights and a LED combination brake/tail lights. “We are proud to launch the all-new Civic Hatch to Australia to take up the fight in the small hatch market”, said Honda Australia’s Director and General Manager Sales and Marketing, Mr. Stephen Collins. “With European heritage, the Civic Hatch has superior styling, dynamic handling and practical features. Priced from just $22,650 it offers exceptional value for money. “We are very confident customers will love the Civic Hatch,” Mr. Collins said. Manufacturer’s List Price

All-New Civic Hatch Is Coming

Written by Lee McKenzie McKinnon on . Posted in News

Designed to meet highest of European standards, the stylish and functional Civic hatch will compete in the fast-growing small car segment both overseas and in Australia. The all-new Civic Hatch that debuted at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2011 and due to hit Australian shores in mid-June this year, has an elegant and seamless design, a lower and wider stance along with improved aerodynamics and fuel efficiency. Quality cabin materials give the new Civic Hatch a luxurious feel, while clever features such as the hidden rear door handle and Honda’s unique ‘Magic Seats’ bring practicality to the versatile hatch. The Civic Hatch will be available in two variants – the VTi and VTi-L. Both variants receive an improved 1.8 litre four cylinder i-VTEC engine delivering maximum power of 104kW at 6500rpm and 174Nm of torque at 4300rpm. From the outset, the engine was designed to function as part of a high quality, easy-to-handle powertrain with improved operation at every stage of the drive, including start-up, shifting, acceleration and deceleration. Honda Australia spokesperson, Mr. Lindsay Smalley, said the new Civic Hatch is sure to surprise and delight. “The all-new Civic Hatch is a stylish and practical offering in the small segment. It embodies style as well as substance. “Its flowing character lines, improved aerodynamics, dynamic ride and handling along with clever packaging are what our customers can look forward to,” Mr. Smalley said. Safety is of course paramount as with all Honda products and the all-new Civic Hatch achieves a five-star ANCAP safety rating with six airbags (front, side and full length curtain), Honda’s Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure, Vehicle Stability Assist, Honda’s G-Con technology, tyre deflation warning system and a reversing camera for the VTi-L (displayed in the Intelligent Multi-information Display). The inclusion of Honda’s Eco Assist system, Econ Mode and improved aerodynamics contribute to the combined urban/extra urban fuel consumption figure of 6.1l/100km for the manual transmission and 6.5l/100km for the automatic transmission. The all-new Civic Hatch has an elegant exterior design, seamlessly unifying all surfaces including the wheel arches and the body. It is lower and wider with an aerodynamic monoform profile. A new brake-light cluster and rear combination lamp design further add to its form and functionality. The interior combines futuristic design with versatility, raising practicality and utility to a new level. The cockpit feel envelops the driver. Two interface zones improve functionality and the full-colour Intelligent Muilti-information display (i-MID), the same system as in the Civic sedan range, allows personalised wallpaper. New tactile surface materials have been used to improve the quality and feel. The Civic Hatch also boasts multiple storage compartments, USB and iPod connectivity, Bluetooth audio streaming in the VTi-L and a new tilt and telescopic steering wheel with easy operating controls, finished in extra-smooth leather with more comfortable stitching in the VTi-L. The all-new Civic Hatch has a new colour palette – Yellow Topaz, Alabaster Silver, Crystal Black, Deep Sapphire Blue, Milano Red, Polished Metal and White Orchid. All have a black interior, with the VTi receiving cloth and the VTi-L receiving leather trim and heated front seats.

A Little Extra

Written by Lee McKenzie McKinnon on . Posted in News

If you need something extra in a car and just don’t know where to find it, then have a look at the Limited Edition Cerato eXtra. Slipping in between the Si and SLi trims in both sedan and 5-door hatch body styles, the strictly limited eXtra benefits from the extensive Si standard range of equipment _ including Bluetooth, tilt and telescopic steering adjustment, cruise control, remote audio controls, folding exterior mirrors and Kia’s lauded local ride and handling. Then add 17-inch alloys with full-size alloy spare (previously 15-inch steel), front fog lamps, rear parking sensors, leather wrapped steering wheel and chrome-tipped exhausts. Available in five exterior colours, Clear White, Ebony Black, Bright Silver, Titanium Silver and Racing Red (hatch only), the new eXtra adds a touch of additional premium style and sparkle at a value cost. The Cerato eXtra 6-speed manual is priced at $21,490 while the 6-speed automatic is $23,490. That represents a premium of just $1250 over the comparative Si model hatch and $1500 for the sedan. The Cerato eXtra limited edition is on available now.
