Honda Cars India has launched the tenth-generation Civic sedan in the country at prices starting from Rs. 17.70 lakh for the base line petrol model and going up to Rs. 22.30 lakh for the top end diesel (all prices are ex-showroom, pan India). The civic is available in three variants and two powertrain options. Deliveries of the executive sedan have been commenced immediately after launch. Honda has also officially confirmed that it has received over 1,000 bookings for the Civic before the price unveiling.
The new-gen Civic is a lot larger than the previous-gen model that was sold in India. It measures 4,656 mm in length, 1,799 mm in width, 1,433 mm in height and has a wheelbase of 2,700 mm. Additionally, the design language has also changed significantly, with the new model looking a lot more aggressive. There are multiple character lines, cuts and creases throughout the car’s body panels. The front fascia includes Honda’s characteristic chrome bar, while the sleek headlamp housings come with all LED illumination and DRLs. On the side, the Civic gets a sloping coupe-like roofline and 17-inch alloy wheels.
The interiors too get an all-new design theme and adorn a dual tone layout. The centre console continues to be tilted slightly towards the driver to provide a driver-oriented theme to the cabin. There is a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system on offer that comes with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Also available is an automatic climate control system, ambient lighting, a lane watch assist camera, engine start/stop button, and electric sunroof.
On the safety front, four airbags, ABS with EBD, vehicle stability assist, agile handling assist, and blind spot detection are standard on all variants. Additionally, Honda has added two more airbags on the range topping ZX variant.
The new Honda Civic 2019 is available in petrol as well as diesel guise. The petrol model draws power from a 1.8 litre, four-cylinder block that is mated to a CVT automatic transmission and develops 139 bhp and 174 Nm of peak torque. Also on offer is a 1.6-litre, four-cylinder turbocharged diesel unit that is mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox that delivers 118 bhp and 300 Nm of torque.
