New Honda Civic Sedan Launched in India @ INR 17.69 Lakh

After a long absence from the Indian market, the Honda Civic has been launched in India for INR 17,69,900. The Honda Amaze and CR-V were the first ones to be launched with the next-generation design language. However, the launch of the Civic sedan has changed the way fans looked at D-segment sedans as it claims segment-leading mileage figure and refined petrol-automatic option. For the first time in India, the Honda Civic features a diesel engine, the same one that is already sold in the European markets.

Around the world, the Honda Civic made its debut with two petrol engine configurations, a 3-cylinder 1.0-litre turbo petrol motor and a 4-cylinder 1.5-litre petrol motor. However, for the Indian markets, none of the above is available since the company brings the 1.8-litre naturally aspirated engine for the petrol models, which is capable of producing maximum power of 141 hp at 6500 rpm and a peak torque of 174 Nm at 4300 rpm. This engine comes with a CVT gearbox. On the other hand, the 1.6-litre diesel motor is capable of producing maximum power of 120 hp at 4000 rpm and a peak torque of 300 Nm at 2000 rpm, and it is paired with a six-speed manual gearbox. There is no automatic transmission with the diesel motor.

New Honda Civic Mileage

  • Petrol CVT: 16.5 kmpl
  • Diesel MT: 26.8 kmpl

Above mentioned figures are ARAI-rated.

Sources close to the company revealed that bringing the automatic option to the diesel motor would have made the Civic quite an expensive car according to its segment and it would not have been viable for the Indian market. The same reason was cited for not bringing the turbo petrol options in India. New Honda Civic has competitors like the Toyota Corolla Altis, Hyundai Elantra, and Skoda Octavia. Here is a variant-wise price list for the new Honda Civic in India.
