Honda New Civic 2014

Expected in : January 2014
Expected Price : Rs 12.20 Lakhs - 15.00 Lakhs


The Honda Civic has been a curious tale for India. When launched it had taken the market by storm with looks, features and Honda build quality and needless to say it outsold its rivals. The competition simply had no answer and it was another huge hit for Honda. Yet after some time thanks to rising petrol prices and introduction of the new City, sales of the Civic slowed down. Not having a diesel was another factor in the Civic being pulled out for the Indian market.
The Civic's cabin has been mightily upgraded, with better seats and upholstery; richer, faux-stitched material on the upper dash and doors, in a dark charcoal color; a more elegant center-stack controller with brushed alloy-like fascia and bright work bezels. The upper instrument panel in the Civic's split-level dash features a 5-inch LCD display with standard backup camera view. Bluetooth, Pandora and other infotainment features are rolled in as standard equipment. Mechanically, the most notable upgrade is the Civic's reinforced front-chassis section, designed to cope with the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's new 40-miles-per-hour narrow-offset front crash test (which is quite a wallop, by the way). Honda's internal studies suggest the new Civic will ace the institute's narrow-offset test.
The revamped car's added chassis rigidity gave the ride-and-handling department more room to firm up the Civic's suspension without compromising ride compliance. Upgraded springs, struts and anti roll bars, as well as bigger brakes and lighter alloy wheels, round out the road-holding package.
Out on a nice country two-lane, the new Civic definitely feels more centered, more settled in its sneakers than the previous car, with less body lean in corners and more composed transitional behavior over uneven pavement. The electrically assisted power-steering ratio is a tick quicker, and the self-centering feel is more affirmative.
The Civic's power train remains unchanged: a 1.8-liter port-injected four cylinder with 140 horsepower and 128 pound-feet of torque, buttoned to a five-speed automatic and front-wheel drive. The redesigned car weighs 50 to 100 pounds more than the previous addition, depending on trim level, so the performance penalty is negligible. Figure on a 0-60 mph acceleration of about 9 seconds. EPA fuel economy comes in at 28/39 miles per gallon, city/highway. It's not that the Civic has been transformed so much as awakened. And in point of fact, the pulled-forward redesign merely restores the Civic to its accustomed place near the head of the compact-sedan pack. The 2012 model-year Civic is destined for the memory hole. The more instructive part of the story is Honda's willingness to respond so quickly, to take a hit in unit cost to protect the brand's good name.
Honda is putting all its efforts with the Amaze sedan which is expected to be a huge landmark for the company and the Civic is not going to be here anytime soon but we expect it to come late next year or early 2014 as this is a segment that Honda cannot ignore especially since the Civic was once the champion.
