Honda To Reveal Civic Hybrid, i-DTEC Gearbox Alongside New Insight In Paris

While all eyes will be on the new Honda Insight hybrid, Honda will also be showing off a refreshed Civic Hybrid at the Paris Motor Show next month. Cosmetic changes are minimal — tweaks to the lighting, fascias and wheels help clean up the design, and are expected to transfer to conventionally powered Civics in Europe. On the mechanical front, Honda will also debut its i-DTEC automatic transmission designed exclusively for Honda vehicles using the firm's 2.2-liter i-DTEC diesel engine. We're looking forward to full specs and drive impressions since a diesel Accord is anticipated on these shores next year, presumably pushing the wheels with this new autobox. [Carscoop]
