The Honda Civic is available with a 1.8-litre petrol engine paired with a CVT. As far as the powertrain’s output is concerned, the Civic is not the most powerful sedan in its segment. In fact, it produces only 1PS more than the Altis, which is the least powerful car here. However, the Civic-CVT is the most fuel efficient petrol-automatic car in its segment with a claimed fuel efficiency of 16.5kmpl.

When it comes to the diesel engine, the Civic is powered by the same 1.6-litre unit as the CR-V and is available with a manual transmission only. The engine is rated to produce 300Nm of peak torque, only 20Nm short of the Octavia. However, when it comes to outright power, both the Octavia and Elantra are more powerful than the Civic. The least powerful car here is the Altis, which gets a 1.4-litre diesel engine that only produces 88PS of maximum power. Based on the claimed figures, the Civic diesel-MT is the most fuel efficient car in this segment. But rest assured, we’ll be putting these claims to test soon.
