Mass production of the tenth generation 2016 Honda Civic that goes on sale in USA and Canada next month has commenced at Honda’s production facility in Alliston, Canada.
This is the first time in the Civic’s 43-year history that its production is being led by North American manufacturing operations. Honda of Canada Mfg (HCM) plant in Alliston will not only act as the lead plant but will also be responsible for developing the manufacturing processes and technologies that will form the manufacturing base for 11 other Honda plants worldwide that will also build the all-new Civic.
Over the past three years, Honda has invested nearly CAD 857 million in to its production facilities in Alliston. The 2016 Honda Civic will also be built at the company’s plant in Greensburg, Indiana in USA, while the turbo engine will be manufactured exclusively at the engine plant located in Anna, Ohio in USA.
The tenth-gen Civic is a vast improvement over its predecessor and has dynamic styling, new chassis, better fuel efficiency and a more sprightly performance. It also gets a turbo engine for the first time that displaces 1.5-liters from its four cylinders and produces 174 hp and 219 Nm (162 lb-ft) of torque.
