My thoughts on all things motoring, press releases, reviews & techie stuff, from around the world.
Please note that the pictures of vehicles within this blog are used as examples of the specific press releases, on occasions, due to the lack of available official pictures, examples are re-produced.
ANY AND ALL PROFANITIES WILL BE REMOVED AND THE PERSON/S RESPONSIBLE WILL BE BANNED, NO EXCEPTIONS.
I will try my best to provide detailed info on various cars and what is like to live with them, I have already produced a few for Jaguar-car-forums, I will do my best to be unbiased, but it will be hard for some cars. I will re-produce press releases and copy from other motoring news.

As other brands delete the diesel option, Honda introduces one on the new Civic.. !!!
New Honda Civic diesel will start from £20,120 OTR
Highly competitive PCP offers from £249 a month
Manual version available in dealers from February with automatic coming in early summer
Honda UK has today announced pricing for the anticipated new diesel Civic manual hatchback. Set to hit retail forecourts next month and with the automatic available in early summer, the entry-level S model with manual transmission will start from £20,120 OTR rising to £24,925 OTR for an EX trim car with the six speed manual gearbox.
Trim levels will mirror those of the existing 1.0 VTEC Turbo petrol model with S, SE, SR and EX trims available. The EX trim is also available with an optional Tech Pack for £600 which adds LED headlights with washers, LED fog lights, wireless phone charging and heated rear seats.
PCP pricing has also been confirmed for the new car, which is built at Honda’s UK manufacturing plant in Swindon; with monthly payments starting at £249 a month on a three year 5.9% APR contract for a Civic 1.6 i-DTEC SE Manual.
The comprehensively revised 1.6 i-DTEC engine will deliver an outstanding combination of performance and efficiency. It produces 120 PS at 4,000 rpm and 300 Nm of torque at 2,000 rpm.
“The arrival of the diesel variant completes the line-up for the Civic hatchback in the UK,” commented Phil Webb, Head of Car at Honda UK. “This 1.6 i-DTEC is the most technologically advanced diesel unit we have launched to market and will deliver a very competitive offering for both the retail customer and the fleet market.”
Pricing for the automatic Civic diesel will follow in the summer when the car becomes available.
