South American-spec Civic to get flex-fuel engines as well.

Following the American launch late last year, the tenth generation Honda Civic is being tested in South East Asia, China, Europe, as well as in South America. In the latest, the all-new Civic has been spied testing in Brazil. The spy shots, originally put up by Noticias Automotivas, show the sedan clocking miles in Sao Paulo, ahead of its reported launch in April.

The tenth generation Honda Civic will likely come first as a sedan in South America.

The all-new Honda Civic was launched stateside with two gasoline engines: a 2.0-litre i-VTEC naturally aspirated four-cylinder unit good for 158 hp and 187 Nm of torque, and a 1.5-litre turbocharged four-cylinder unit which makes 174 hp and 220 Nm of torque. The Brazilian report suggests that flex-fuel versions of both engines will be offered in South America. The engines will be mated to either a 6-speed manual transmission or a continuously variable transmission.
