The newest Honda Civic and HR-V recently achieved impressive fuel mileages in a run conducted with Automobile Association of the Philippines.

The Civic RS Turbo CVT with Honda Sensing achieved a fuel mileage of 21.43 kilometers per liter. Likewise, both variants of its counterpart, HR-V registered impressive fuel economy results. The latter’s V Turbo CVT Honda Sensing did 24.34 kilometers per liter, while the S CVT variant recorded the highest fuel efficiency rating of 29.66 kilometers per liter. These were from 129 kilometers of highway driving, with 60-80 kph speed at 1,500-2,000 rpm, air-conditioning at 24°C temperature, and level one fan speed.

Here, both Civic and HR-V V Turbo variants highlight the 1.5-Liter DOHC i-VTEC Turbo engines that provide an ideal balance of dynamic performance and fuel efficiency. In the Civic, this engine produces 177hp and 240N-m of torque, while the HR-V V Turbo packs 176hp and 240N-m. On the other hand, the non-turbo HR-V S variant produces 120hp and 145N-m of torque. Furthermore, all models’ engines shift with a continuous variable transmission that helps maximize fuel efficiency for a refined driving experience.

“With fluctuating fuel prices, we understand how important fuel efficiency is to vehicle owners. Through this eco run, we are not only demonstrating that Honda vehicles are fuel efficient in local conditions, we also want to encourage customers that they too can have excellent fuel mileage,” Honda Cars Philippines Inc. president, Masahiko Nakamura, said.

“It does help to have safe driving habits and to observe the periodic maintenance service, especially combined with advanced technology features like the Honda Sensing.”
