Honda will launch the Civic sedan in India sometime in January 2019. The new 10th generation Civic model will be the third product to be launched in the country in the current financial year. The new 2019 civic sedan will be similar to the international-spec version. However, Honda will obviously make the necessary India-specific changes before its entry.
The launch of the 2019 Honda sedan, will bring back the Civic nameplate in the country. The model was discontinued from the Indian market, almost half a decade ago. The Indian-spec Civic will not only come with a refreshed design update but also, an updated power unit as well.
The new 2019 Honda Civic facelift comes with a completely refreshed design compared to the previous generation model. The Civic gets a sharp styling, following Honda's latest design philosophy. The sedan also receives a coupe-like rear end, making the car look sportier than before.
Other design updates include smoked-headlamps, glossy black finish for the front grille and chrome bits on both the front and rear bumpers.
The Honda Civic facelift is expected to be offered with two engine options: 1.8-litre i-VTEC petrol engine and a 1.6-litre i-DTEC diesel unit.
The petrol engine is said to produce 138bhp and 176Nm of torque, while the diesel unit churns out 118bhp and 300Nm of torque.
Both engines will be mated to a six-speed manual gearbox, with the petrol engine getting an optional CVT transmission as well.
Other features on the international-spec 2019 Honda Civic: seven-inch touchscreen display, smartphone connectivity with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Collision Mitigation Braking, Forward Collision Warning, Road Departure Mitigation, Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keeping Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control, Airbags and ABS.
