Power is derived from Honda’s i-MMD two-motor petrol-electric hybrid system, pairing an Atkinson cycle 2.0-litre petrol engine hooked up to two electric motors, allowing for a combined system output of 184 PS and 315 Nm. Drive is routed to the front wheels via an e-CVT.

Under the NEDC test cycle, Dongfeng Honda said that the Civic Hybrid returns 4.39-litre/100 km (22.7 km/litre). In China, fuel prices vary from state-to-state, but typically ranges between CNY 8.10 (~RM 5.26)for RON 89 fuel to CNY 11 (~RM 7.14) for premium RON 98. With such fuel prices, it comes as no surprise why hybrid and EVs are a hit with Chinese buyers.

The top-spec Civic Hybrid also adds the Honda LaneWatch camera to its safety kit. China’s Civic Hybrid is one of the very Civics that sold globally that offer both LaneWatch and Blind Spot Information (BSI). For context, Honda has removed LaneWatch from its North American (except Canada) line-up of models.
