Honda to lift lid on new Civic

Honda will unveil its new Civic at Frankfurt next week. It will come as a five-door hatch and is expected here in December for the January market.

The company says ride and handling have been vastly improved while there's lots of cabin and boot space. There will be three engines -- a 1.4-litre petrol, 1.8-litre petrol and 2.2-litre diesel. All have six-speed manual gearboxes, Idle Stop and Hill Start Assist.
