Honda Cars India has announced that it will be discontinuing the Civic sedan and the CR-V SUV in the country.

HCIL continues to believe in the resilience of the Indian economy and hope for a quicker recovery of the market. India is extremely important market in Honda's global strategy and HCIL is committed to bring its latest and advanced technology models including electrified vehicles in future."
