Honda Cars India Ltd (HCIL), the Indian subsidiary of the Japanese auto giant, has finally unveiled the highly awaited All New Honda Civic at Auto Expo 2018. The new Civic is expected to launch later this year and will go on to rival the likes of Toyota Corolla Altis. Now in its tenth generation, the new Civic will likely launch for a starting price of Rs 14 lakh. Details on the specifications of the India-spec model are yet to be revealed.
For its tenth generation, the Honda Civic has gotten a radical makeover. It features a low, wide nose complete with sleek headlamps flanking a thick chrome bar. It houses the Honda logo and is a staple feature of most modern Hondas.
The all new Honda Civic 2018 model has a coupe-like side profile, deviating from a conventional three-box shape. At the back, the taillamps integrate seamlessly with a subtle lip spoiler that adds some sharpness to the boot. The rear bumper features black inserts that also house the reflector units. Overall, the 2018 MY Civic is nothing like anything we have on sale in India currently. This should definitely give it an edge over its competitors.

Currently, it is difficult to say exactly when the new Civic will come to India, but the All New Honda Civic 2018 India Launch should take place by the end of this year. The new Honda Civic will plug the gap between the City and the CR-V. Prices will fall in the Rs. 14-20 lakhs bracket.

Our sources have also revealed the engine lineup for the India-spec new Honda Civic. It will get the 1.5 L diesel that also powers all diesel Honda cars in India. The petrol variants will get a 1.8-litre i-VTEC, which will come with either a 6-speed manual or a CVT automatic. A 1.5 L Diesel will mean the Civic will be underpowered in comparison with its rivals like the Elantra and Octavia. However, it will still be more powerful than the Corolla Altis’ 1.4 Diesel.
