The 2019 Honda Civic is going to launch in India in a single top-spec variant available in petrol and diesel engine offering a CVT and MT respectively.
The 10th generation Honda Civic is all set to launch in India soon. It is expected to fall in-between the price range of INR 16 lakh to INR 20 lakh. Its debut will mark the re-entry of this executive sedan in India after a gap of almost 6 years. And this time around, for the time the first time, the Honda Civic is going to get petrol as well as a diesel engine option under the hood.
The petrol engine in the Civic is going to be a 1.8-litre, naturally aspirated unit. This engine is capable of churning out 140 BHP of power along with 174 Nm of peak torque. As standard, this engine will be paired to a CVT (continuously variable transmission).
In addition to this petrol engine, the 2019 Honda Civic is also going to get a 1.6-litre diesel engine. This is the same engine which made its debut with the Honda CR-V in India last year.
