Instead, to improve comfort and performance, have adopted some hydraulic supports to anchor the shaft to the body. Not only in his film, also claim to be "leaders is their category refinement" in-law refers to the feeling inside.

Care has been the isolation of the cabin, but especially the aerodynamics, employing former members of the Formula One team's goal was a quiet interior, high-speed stability and low drag, count on Honda. With improvements in the aerodynamic wind tunnel, enhancing every detail, say they have achieved in noise and vibration to its European rivals.

The diesel engine is the Civic 2.2 i-DTEC-known Honda Accord, with 150 horses. On the body of the Civic gets down from the 147 g / km CO2 Accord to an impressive 110 g / km of CO2.
