Dealerships of Honda in Australia have started accepting bookings for the 2016 Civic, which has already garnered 200 pre-orders. The tenth-generation 2016 Civic will be available with a 1.8-liter four-cylinder petrol engine and the 1.5-liter VTEC Turbo engine for the Australian market. The 1.8-liter petrol develops 140 hp and 174 Nm of torque whereas the VTEC Turbo will output 170 hp and 220 Nm of torque. Both engines will be paired to a CVT driving the front wheels.

For the Australian market, the new Civic will be exported from Honda’s Thailand plant. According to a recent report, Honda is considering the Civic for the Indian market as well, as there exists a large gap between the Honda City and the soon-to-launch Honda Accord Hybrid.
