Honda has brought the iconic Civic back to India, pricing the base V variant at Rs 17.7 lakh. The mid-spec VX variant has been priced at Rs 19.2 lakh for the petrol and Rs 20.5 lakh for the diesel while the top of the line ZX variant costs Rs 21 lakh for the petrol and Rs 22.3 lakh for the diesel (all ex-showroom, India). At this price, the Civic is on the pricier side of the segment but makes up for it in terms of features, handling package and road presence. It is also being offered with a 3 year, unlimited km warranty for a worry-free ownership, which can be extended to the fourth and fifth year. The Civic rivals the Skoda Octavia, Toyota Corolla and the Hyundai Elantra. As of now, Honda has received over 1,100 bookings for the Civic.

The Honda Civic might have returned in its 10th-generation with a striking design but it still retains its good old heart. The petrol variants are powered by a 1.8-litre, 4-cylinder, naturally aspirated petrol engine which produces 141PS of power and 174Nm of peak torque. While these figures might remind you of the older Civic, this engine has been worked upon and is now BSVI-compliant. It comes paired to a CVT, and Honda has no intentions for a manual option in the near future.

But if you want frugal and not fast, there is now a 1.6-litre, 4-cylinder, turbocharged diesel engine as well, borrowed from the CR-V. It develops 120PS of maximum power and 300Nm of peak torque and comes mated to a 6-speed manual transmission with a claimed efficiency of 26.8kmpl. Want to know how these motors drive?

Like a modern sedan, the Civic too does not skimp on features and offers a comprehensive package. From the outside, you get a complete LED lighting setup with beautifully stacked headlamps, fog lamps and tail lamps. Wheels on the flagship variant are R17 alloys with a dual-tone finish and on the top, you even have a sunroof. It is available in five colours: Platinum White Pearl, Radiant Red, Modern Steel, Lunar Silver and Golden Brown.

Inside the Civic, you get a 7-inch all-digital instrument cluster, a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system, 8-way power-adjustable driver seat, dual-zone climate control, engine remote start and lane watch function, which sends a feed from the left ORVM camera to the infotainment display. It even gets different view modes like top, normal and wide rear view for the rear camera. The Honda Civic comes to India with a 5-star ASEAN NCAP safety rating and packs anti-lock braking system (ABS) and electronic brake distribution, brake assist, automatic brake hold, vehicle stability assist with traction control, hill start assist (HSA), six airbags, and ISOFIX child seat mounts.

The Honda Civic measures 4656mm in length, 1799mm in width and 1433mm in height. The wheelbase of the saloon is 2700mm long and it has a boot space of 430 litres. With these dimensions, it is slightly smaller than the Octavia but gets a better stance as it is lower and has a sharper design. One important aspect, though, is its ground clearance of 170mm (unladen), which will let you glide over speed breakers.

Armed with modern features and sporty looks, the 2019 Honda Civic looks to be a worthy competitor to its segment rivals. Would you choose the Civic over the Octavia, Elantra or Corolla Altis? Let us know in the comments below.
