Honda Civic Discontinued In The Japanese Market

Honda had launched the tenth-gen Civic in India last year. The sedan fared well and has registered good sales numbers, considering the decreasing demand for C-segment sedans in India since its inception. The new Civic was off to a great start by registering 2,291 units sold within the first two months.

However, Honda has discontinued the Civic sedan in Japan due to low demand for the model. The Japanese carmaker has seen falling demand for its Civic sedan and sold only 1,619 units in the last fiscal year. Hence, the decision to withdraw the Civic from the Japanese domestic market seems right for the company.

The dashboard and the upper panels of the doors feature soft-touch materials giving the cabin a premium feel.

Thoughts About The Honda Civic Getting Discontinued In Japan

With the increasing demand for SUVs in the same price bracket, the C-segment sedans are losing its value. Back in the day, these executive-sedans had a desirability factor working in their favour. It is good that the company has discontinued the Civic in the Japanese market rather than going into a loss.
