The not so appealing new 2012 Honda Civic was recently showcased at the 2011 Detroit Motor Show in both two door and four door versions and the new radical styling failed to make our jaws drop the way the existing Honda Civic did at the time it was launched. The pictures of the new model have shown a number of improvements and changes on the exterior including some which were undesired.
But at the end of the day we should not lose hope as Honda has definitely put in all its effort and the new product will be special in a way. What draws our interest now are the latest pictures of India bound or we can say the Asian model of the same.
The above picture of 2012 Civic shows the readied version of it for a nearby launch and expectedly it is be same we will get here in India as well. Technologically the car may not be much distinguishable but the design has shown some drastic changes as now the car’s face resembles the Honda City along with a grille derived from the Honda Civic Hybrid.
In all probability the new civic bound for India will sport a 1.8 Liter MPFI petrol engine of the 1.8 Liter and 2.0 Liter options available in other markets, and will be reworked to deliver more torque and provide better driving experience. Another disappointment comes from the engine side with no CRDI diesel engine options on the cars as yet.
Handling has been another problem for this sedan, rendering it with less stability at appreciable speeds and with the new model it needs to be seen whether the company has worked on it or not. Like all of you readers we also await the launch of this special car which is expected in the next few months.
