New Honda Civic India Launch

The new Honda Civic is easily among the most awaited of upcoming new Honda Cars in India in 2016, 2017. The new Civic does look really promising.

Now, though, Honda intends to bring the Civic back to India in the form of the current generation model. Civic’s design highlights include- ‘Flying H’ front chrome grille, a long hood, sporty bumpers, and boomerang-style LED taillamps.

The new Civic is internationally being sold with a 1.5 L VTEC turbocharged engine that comes mated to a CVT Auto ‘box.

Car Blog India will come up with more on Upcoming New Honda Cars in India 2016, 2017 with launch date, prices, specifications and mileage. So stay tuned for more details. Which of these Upcoming New Honda Cars in India are you waiting for? Do share your views.


  1. Honda Civic and HRV launch date delay will lead to lot of market share lose to competition… Honda needs to launch them soon to catch up with competition.

  2. Honda HRV is distinctive and surely would scale up the honda sales since in India we have Ford Eco sport, Duster but all of these cross over miss the style that HRV offers. Furthermore the recent launch BRV is a huge SUV not to categorise as a cross over. Honda needs to speed up their launches not sure about the India strategy but guess INDIA is looking for more premium looking cars rather than cheap quality. Since India is the growing market.. Honda please think bigger!

  3. i strongly agree with TARUNA. you honda guys should realy think on bringing civic and HRV vezel to indian market. we never wanted mobilio or BRV

  4. Would like to know if Honda India is planning to Facelift the Honda Mobilio? Thank you. Kind Regards

  7. Hi Honda, You are yet to do something to make the Diesel Engine placed on City & Amaze (same) sound little. Further, Amaze should was Compact Cross with a lesser than a heavy engine placed on 4000mm LL vehicle and 4400mm+ city. Then no doubt the 4000mm segment will over run maruthi with better mileage on diesel and 1000cc on petrol. try it please

  8. Dear Honda team improve your sales quality through well qualified experienced manpower rather taking startup guys to confuse people and themselves building confidence in brand is more important than just changing products…
