After a hiatus of six years, the most beloved sedan of the country, the Honda Civic is back – Read the full review at autoX

The 8th generation Civic was an instant success in India, but in the unfortunate turn of events, it was discontinued in 2012. Come 2019, and Honda has launched the 10th generation Civic in India. Read on.

New Delhi, India – July 16, 2019

It was back in 2012 when Honda introduced the 8th generation Civic by the Indian shores, and it was an instant success. With an exterior unlike any other, an interior with dollops of space and comfort and an engine that oozed refinement, the Civic became one of the most desirable cars in the country. Now in its 10th generation, the Civic promises to be better than its predecessor. Find out more in our Honda Civic review.

Edgy, modern and snazzy is what describes the design of the Civic in a nutshell. The Civic follows Honda’s contemporary design language, it gets a large Honda signature grille at the front that seamlessly connects the full LED-headlamps, which in turn makes the front end radical and sporty. At the side, there are a classy set of 17-inch alloy wheels and a coupe-like roofline that flows from the C-pillar directly to the LED tail lamps at the rear. Step inside, and you are greeted by a well-designed all-black interior. Unlike the 8th generation car, this one isn’t as radical as you would expect from a Civic, and there are some bits that are borrowed from smaller Hondas that make the Civic experience belittle. The split-instrument cluster makes way for mature instrumentation with a rev counter in the middle housed between the digital speedometer. What we did appreciate in our Honda Civic review, the seats are well-bolstered and extremely supportive for long drives.

While the venerable 1.8-litre i-VTEC motor makes a return, the new Civic is also powered by a 1.6-litre diesel that puts out 118bhp and 300Nm of torque, and it comes mated to a six-speed manual transmission. In our Civic review, we bagged the keys to the diesel. Right from the get-go, this motor is extremely refined and smooth at lower revs. There is some amount of turbo-lag before the i-DTEC kicks in, and once the turbo spools over, there is enough thrust from the engine at just a simple flex of the right foot. But once past 2,500rpm, the diesel-clatter becomes audible and intrusive inside the cabin. Honda claims, the suspension has been extensively retuned for the Indian roads, and I must say, they have done a commendable job at it. The ride quality is fantastic and the car glides over bad roads very easily. The handling is extremely impressive, and there is a lot of feedback from the steering wheel while tucking into corners. To sum it up, the 10th generation Civic ticks all the boxes for an executive sedan. But in a market full of SUVs, is the Civic enough to revive an ailing segment?
