Sixth Generation

Sixth Generation

1995

Transcending its traditional “car for the masses” appeal, the sixth-generation Civic sought to become a vehicle that represents the times from a global perspective. It incorporated a range of new technologies to satisfy strong demand for high performance, safety and low emissions. These included the 3-stage VTEC engine, boasting high output and high fuel efficiency and Honda Multimatic, a next-generation, variable-speed automatic transmission. Consequently, the Civic received “Car of the Year Japan” awards in 1995 and 1996.

The natural gas-powered Civic GX was introduced in 1998 in the United States.

The Civic's first diesel - a 2.0L model, 5door-hatchback and estate model, Civic Aero deck were introduced in Europe.
