Another success for NGK

Honda Civic photoNGK Spark Plugs (UK) Ltd have achieved another notable OE success by supplying a range of products for Honda’s new Civic.

The leading supplier of OE spark plugs, glow plugs and NTK sensors has had its spark plugs and sensors selected for fitment on the new Civic 1.4 i-VTEC (petrol), 1.8 i-VTEC (petrol) and 2.2 i-DTEC (diesel) models.
The 1.4 i-VTEC features NGK spark plugs and an NTK oxygen sensor, while the 1.8 i-VTEC variant boasts NTK oxygen and knock sensors, plus spark plugs. In addition, the 2.2 i-DTEC sports an NTK exhaust gas temperature sensor.

Brian Childs, Deputy Managing Director, NGK Spark Plugs (UK) Ltd, said: “We are proud to have supplied products for the new Honda Civic, which historically is one of the most popular cars on the UK market.

“It is further confirmation of the fact that we are one of the most respected suppliers of OE products to the world’s leading vehicle manufacturers.”

The all-new 2012 Civic was featured in a series of TV adverts to coincide with the cars being available for customer test drives at Honda dealerships.

Martin Moll, Head of Marketing, Honda (UK), said: “Everyone here at Honda (UK) is looking forward to receiving customer feedback and we are confident it will be even more successful than its predecessor.

“We have timed the launch of the TV advert to coincide with the first cars arriving in showrooms to really maximise awareness. The advert is a synopsis of the unknown journey the engineers took to continuously improve the Civic and is brought to life in a dramatic reveal of the new model at the end.”

Now in its ninth generation, the 2012 Civic is available from £16,495 for the entry-level 1.4-litre 100PS i-VTEC SE.
