The Japanese automaker is all geared up to gain some market shares in the premium car segment by re-introducing its globally acclaimed Civic sedan. The next-gen model is to be introduced on a re-designed chassis, which makes the car lighter and fuel-efficient. The new car features edgier and angular curves at the right places to give it a completely different and appealing look from its previous models.

The India-spec model built on a new platform that offers good driving dynamics. Interior of the sedan has finely finished seats with high-quality material, which provides it a premium look inside. The infotainment system is expected to be introduced with new connectivity and navigation features to aid easy driving experience.

The major update to the newest Civic sedan will be the power mechanism, which will be offered in both the diesel and petrol engine variant options. The diesel unit will be powered by a 1.6-litre i-DTEC engine, which will develop a maximum power of 118bhp and a peak torque of 3,000 Nm. while the petrol variant will be powered by either a 1.5-litre or a 1.8-litre VTEC turbocharged engine. The 1.8-litre diesel engine will be producing a maximum power output of 135bhp and a peak torque of 170 Nm. Both the variants come mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox, while a new option of 6-speed CVT gearbox is also introduced for the first time.

The new generation Honda Civic is expected to be priced starting from Rs. 15 lakh (ex-showroom) for the base trim and goes up to Rs. 20 lakh (ex-showroom) for the range-topping variants. Once launched, it will compete with the likes of Hyundai Elantra, Toyota Corolla and Skoda Octavia.
