| | ,

The redesigned 2012 Honda Civic is simultaneously debuting at the New York International Auto Show and at dealerships nationwide, with pricing starting at $15,600 for the base DX sedan extending to $26,750 for the hybrid with option packages.

The eighth generation of the perennially top-selling Honda is the same size as the 2011 edition. But it’s 40 pounds because of a newly utilized high-strength steel and other weight-reducing changes.

Standard for the 2012 Civic will be a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine with 140 horsepower and five-speed automatic transmission. Its manufacturer estimate is 39 mpg on the freeway.

The HF model, which features some aerodynamic tweaks and fewer options, will be rated at 41 mpg in freeway driving and 29 mpg in the city, according to Honda.

The hybrid edition features 1.5-liter gasoline engine good for 90 horsepower, a 20kw electric motor and with 44 mpg estimates in city and freeway driving.

Lastly, the performance Civic Si includes a 201-horsepower, 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engine, a six-speed manual transmission and in two-door or four-door models.
