Honda’s India-bound Civic facelift shown

  • Published On: 16 August 2018

The car’s India launch is scheduled for early 2019.

We will be getting the facelifted version of the Civic sold abroad and the changes to the 2019 Civic's exterior are subtle. There's now a front ‘wing’ finished in piano black instead of the chrome bar we saw on the pre-facelift Civic. It also features a reworked, more angular front bumper with chrome accents for the fog lamp housings, a chrome strip for the rear bumper and new alloy wheels. The car also comes with a new ‘Sport’ trim on offer internationally.

On the inside, the car gets an updated seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Honda's Sensing suite of safety features, which includes a collision warning and mitigation system with automatic braking, lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control and a lot more are now available on the Civic.

The facelifted Civic here could be powered by a 1.8-litre, 140hp petrol engine, along with the 1.6-litre Earth Dreams diesel engine, making 120hp and 300Nm. The engines will be paired to a nine-speed automatic gearbox, just like the CR-V.

The car will go on sale in the first half of 2019 with a price-tag between Rs 16-20 lakh.
