Honda UK has today announced the four door saloon version of the Civic is coming to the UK market. Built in Turkey, the Civic saloon will be available in both petrol and diesel powertrains and will be in dealer forecourts from August.

It’s not often a car manufacturer introduces a new family-sized four-door saloon to the UK, but Honda clearly thinks there’s still a market for them: it has unexpectedly announced plans to introduce the four-door version of the latest Civic to the UK, joining the existing (British-built) five-door hatch in the line-up.

Honda UK has today announced the four door saloon version of the Civic is coming to the UK market. Built in Turkey, the Civic saloon will be available in both petrol and diesel powertrains and will be in dealer forecourts from August.

Honda ’s UK Civic range is set for an expansion, with the arrival of a saloon variant later this year. The four-door Civic is currently on sale on the continent and will come to British shores with two engine options identical to its hatchback counterpart – a 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol unit

Unlike the hatch, the four-door is built in Turkey, but it is based on the same platform as the hatch, and shares many of the car’s distinctive styling traits. The bit that’s been toned down is the rear: indeed, this may be the very reason Honda’s bringing it across, to appeal to those who find the hatch a bit too radical.

It shares engines with the five-door. Honda’s offering either a 1.0-litre VTEC petrol, or a 1.6-litre i-DTEC turbodiesel. The 1.5-litre VTEC turbo petrol won’t be offered though – and, before you ask, Honda’s not planning to make a Type-R saloon version of this car either…

More than that the new look, new platform and added features makes the Amaze a much better car and by far currently the toughest rival to the Dzire. We will know the prices next week but this is by far the most important launch by Honda and the car maker is betting big on this car being slotted below the WR-V and City thus bringing in volumes. The compact sedan space is currently ruled by the Dzire with others falling way behind and the Amaze wants to change that.

Opinion: Civic four-door is a car for Honda loyalists

Honda Civic four-door 2018 © Provided by Motoring Research Honda Civic four-door 2018 Honda is fiercely proud of its loyal customer base. They’re generally delighted with the service they receive from the brand, and buy model after model, usually from the same dealership. Even some premium brands would kill for the satisfaction rates Honda enjoys.

Honda owners are also a little more mature than the UK average. The Jazz in particular is a car preferred by older drivers, while the HR-V and Civic also have their older fans.

Such buyers may not care for the radical lines of the latest Civic hatch. Even the regular cars look like a Type R, with the Type R itself looking like a BTCC racer. The elderly driver looking to get from A to B generally doesn’t have much interest such addenda.

With the promise of decent value from the Turkey-built model, it could be the perfect car to step up into from a top-spec Jazz.

Call it Honda’s reward to the thriving customer base it values so highly.

Honda is now working out pricing, specification, trim lines and fuel economy figures, ahead of its launch in UK dealers from this August. Although sales won’t be huge, it will still be an interesting and useful addition to the range.

Now, we have just one more request, Honda. As you’re bringing in the saloon, could you also now consider bringing across the Civic Coupe, currently sold in the United States? And, while we’re onto it, perhaps consider dropping in a Type R drivetrain?

We think it’s high time there were a genuine replacement to the famed DC5 Integra Type R coupe of the early noughties, you know…
