Honda Cars Philippines, Inc. (HCPI) reports the official fuel mileage of the all-new Civic and the all-new HR-V, following a recent fuel economy run conducted in partnership with the Automobile Association of the Philippines (AAP).
The all-new Civic RS Turbo CVT Honda SENSING achieved a fuel mileage of 21.43 kilometers per liter. Likewise, both variants of the all-new HR-V registered impressive fuel economy results. The V Turbo CVT Honda SENSING did 24.34 kilometers per liter, and the S CVT Honda SENSING 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 no. 1 fan speed.
The all-new Civic and HR-V V Turbo 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 178 hp and 240 Nm of torque, while the HR-V V Turbo packs 177 ps and 240 Nm. On the other hand, the non-turbo HR-V S variant produces 121 hp and 145 Nm of torque. Furthermore, all models’ engines shift with a CVT.
“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. 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,” said Mr. Masahiko Nakamura, HCPI President.
