Only for the Swiss market

Honda has launched a limited WTCC edition of the Civic 2.2 i-DTEC road car that will be on sale in Autumn on the Swiss market only. The WTCC inspired Civic is priced at 31,900 Swiss francs or approximately PhP 1,417,683.

The new car is powered by a 4-cylinder, 2.2-litre turbo diesel engine that supplies 150 bhp at 4000 rpm and a torque of 350 Nm. Its look and livery have been directly inspired by the Civic WTCC racing car, including 17” wheels. The gearbox is a 6-speed manual and suspension has been set to enhance precision and grip.

The Civic i-DTEC WTCC combines sporty look and performance with respect for the environment: its fuel consumption and CO2 emissions are limited to 4.4 litres/100 km and 115 g/km respectively.

Tiago Monteiro and Gabriele Tarquini will be Honda's driver for the following season of the WTCC.
