Honda Civic Overview

Honda will re-introduce the legendary Civic nameplate in India on March 7. This premium sedan will renew its rivalry with the likes of the Skoda Octavia, Hyundai Elantra and the Toyota Corolla Altis. We’re expecting prices to start around the Rs 17 lakh mark and top out at around Rs 23 lakh (ex-showroom). Honda dealerships are already accepting bookings for a token amount of Rs 31,000. In its tenth generation, the Civic will be offered with a choice of a 1.8-litre petrol engine (paired with a CVT) and a 1.6-litre diesel (paired with a 6-speed MT).

Honda Civic Highlights

Exterior and Interior

Honda’s Civic has grown up, quite literally. Compared to the eighth generation Civic we last saw, the new car is a whopping 111mm longer, and 49mm wider too. Now though, it looks sportier thanks to the hood that’s lower by 35mm, and the roof that’s now 17mm lower. Add the coupe-like roofline and the raised rear end to the mix and you’ve got a design that will make heads turn. Guaranteed. Adding bling to the svelte form are full-LED headlamps with daytime running lamps (lower variants will get projector headlamps), 17-inch machine-finished alloy wheels and ‘light pipes’ that extend on to the boot lid. Ground clearance has been adapted to suit Indian conditions, and an unofficial estimate puts it at around 170mm - which is plenty.

Step inside...actually, you can’t. You’ll have to sit inside it, because the Civic retains its low seating position. This might not win favours with the oldie club, bear in mind. Space isn’t extraordinary in any manner, and feels just about enough. Also, the Civic is best used as a four-seater because of the central tunnel and the raised portion on the seat. Boot space, at 430 litres, is barely a cause for concern. On the features front, the top-spec Civic ZX is packing a whole lot. This includes dual-zone climate control, an electric sunroof, leather upholstery as well as electric adjust for the driver’s seat. It additionally features Honda’s LaneWatch tech, a 7-inch full LCD driver’s display and 7-inch touchscreen that supports Android Auto as well as Apple CarPlay. Talking about safety, the Civic has you covered there as well. The top-spec version gets tech like vehicle stability management, hill start assist and agile handling assist. Six airbags, ABS with EBD, ISOFIX child seat mounts and four disc brakes will be offered as standard across the range.

Specifications

Honda will offer the Civic with two engine options: a 1.8-litre petrol and a 1.6-litre diesel. The petrol engine is the same motor we’ve seen in the previous Civic, but is now tweaked to produce 141PS of power and 174Nm of torque. This engine can be had with a CVT, which robs some driving pleasure. But if you’re looking at the Civic as a companion for your everyday drives, you shouldn’t have a problem at all. The diesel engine has 120PS and 300Nm on tap, which seems a bit underwhelming. Again, inside the city there’s practically nothing you’d crib about. However, out on the highway you’d want some extra go-power.

Variants

While there's no confirmation from Honda on this front, our sources suggest that the Civic will be available in three variants. The base variant is expected to be well equipped too, with features such as six airbags, projector headlamps, 16-inch alloy wheels and the 7-inch LCD driver display.

Competitors

Skoda Octavia: A rare blend of comfort, luxury and driving dynamics, the Skoda Octavia is a force to reckon with and enjoys an almost cult-like following in India. Its perception of poor after-sales service however, tends to work against it.

Toyota Corolla: The most no-nonsense car of the segment. It gets the basics of reliability, space and ride quality spot on. Everything else is a bonus. If you can’t be bothered to research and just want a luxury sedan like yesterday, pick this one. It won’t go wrong. It’s like choosing vanilla, though.

Hyundai Elantra: The Elantra is a swanky sedan that doesn’t stray too far away from the Rs 20 lakh mark. It’s a healthy blend of sensibility, wow-factor and performance. The Elantra is the jack of all trades in the segment. Also, possibly, the master of none.

ZigSays

It may neither be practical nor the most feature-loaded. But the design makes you swoon, the interiors feel special and built-to-last, and you've got the peace of mind associated with Honda's famed reliability too. Honda's Civic knows how to make you want it!
