Honda Cars India has announced the launch date for the much-awaited sports sedan, the all-new Civic in the Indian market. The new Honda Civic is scheduled to launch in India on the 7th March 2019.
The Honda Civic was first showcased at the 2018 Auto Expo. However, the car showcased at the event was the pre-facelift model to the Civic being launched next month. The new Honda Civic comes with subtly updated front bumpers, chrome accents around the front fog lamps, a chrome strip on the rear bumpers and a refreshed set of alloy wheel design.
In terms of mechanicals, the 2019 Honda Civic continues to be powered by the same 1.8-litre petrol engine as on the previous generation model. The four-cylinder i-VTEC petrol engine churns out 140bhp and 174Nm of torque and is mated to a seven-step CVT gearbox.

The diesel engine on the new Civic produces 120bhp and 300Nm of torque and comes mated to a standard six-speed manual gearbox, without the option of an automatic.
Honda has loaded the new Civic with a number of features and equipment.
