The all-new 10th generation Honda Civic has been launched in India for a price of Rs 17.69 lakhs (ex-showroom, all-India). Making a comeback after five years, the Civic can now be had in three petrol and two diesel engine options. Available in five colour options, the new Civic brings back the lost smile on the face of Civic enthusiasts. We have driven the car and you can read all about it here.
What’s good about it?
The newly introduced Honda Civic comes with a five-star ASEAN NCAP safety rating. Needless to say, the vehicle comes with all modern safety equipment in the form of six airbags, vehicle stability assist, agile handle assist, ABS with EBD and BA. Honda has introduced the segment first features like ‘Honda LaneWatch’ feature which uses a camera for blind spot detection, electric parking brake with brake hold and remote engine starter.
What’s not so good?
The petrol variant of the newly launched Honda Civic is limited to the automatic option, while the diesel variant is limited to a manual option. The lack of automatic/manual options in either of the variants limits the choices for potential customers.
Best variant to buy?
The top-spec Civic ZX variant priced at Rs 21 lakhs (petrol) and Rs 22.30 lakhs (diesel) is a good option considering the fact that the vehicle comes loaded with additional features such as curtain airbags, lane watch camera, LED headlights, LED fog lights, remote sunroof and auto rain sensing front wipers. For the ones looking to save about Rs 1.80 lakhs, the VX variant is up for grabs, without the above-mentioned features, of course!
1.8-litre – 180bhp and 174Nm
1.6-litre – 118bhp and 300Nm
Did you know?
As compared to the global model, the India-spec Civic comes with an increased ground clearance of 20mm in the front and 15mm at the rear.
