Honda’s new Civic one of the most cost effective choices for fleets

Honda’s new Civic one of the most cost effective choices for fleets

Whole life cost figures from motor industry data supplier KeeResources reveals that the newly launched 10th generation Honda Civic is a “competitive force” in the C-segment market.  

The British-built Civic is calculated to save £1,800 in whole life costs across a typical contract period of 36 months compared to the Ford Focus 1.0 Ecoboost, while opting for the Civic over the five-door Golf Hatch 1.4TSI cuts costs by £518.04.  

These savings, said Honda, were made up by the Civic’s improved depreciation value, competitive finance and lower running costs when compared to key rivals.

The figures show that the Civic 1.0 V-TEC Turbo 129 SR CVT costs 693.01 per month, versus whole life costs for the Golf Hatch five-door 1.4TSI BMT 125 SS SE Nav DSG of £707.40 per month and the Focus 1.0 Ecoboost 125 Zetec Edition of £743.01 per month.  

Marc Samuel, fleet sales operations manager, Honda UK, said: “Driving down whole life costs is a key priority for Honda and the new Civic really delivers on this. For fleets looking for a petrol option, a saving of £1,800 over a contract period of 36 months is hugely significant and this, coupled with the Civic’s safety, performance and drive, makes it a compelling choice for fleets.”
