The new Civic was spotted at Honda’s Tapukara facility, launch could happen at 2018 Auto Expo.
The Honda Civic was first launched in India in 2006 and it was sold until 2013, when it was phased out from the Indian markets, owing to lower sales. That 7 year old run did generate a fan following that still exists and will for the decades to come as well.
The Civic was positioned between the City and Accord and ask me to find one negative in the Civic, it would only and only be the lack of a diesel engine option. That near perfect and desirable a sedan the Civic was and it was also known to be a driver’s car and was a favourite with enthusiasts too.
Recently, the Civic hatchback was spotted at Honda’s Tapukara plant in Rajasthan. On further quizzing, it has been derived that the Japanese automaker is likely to re-introduce the Civic in the Indian market again and there is a high possibility that it will be launched at the 2018 Auto Expo.
However, Honda’s top executives say the model spotted at the Tapukara plant has been imported from Japan for research purposes only. It is also come to light that the new Civic would be made at Honda’s Greater Noida factory, where it produces the CR-V, Brio, Amaze and City.
The Honda Civic sells internationally in various forms, a coupe, hatchback, 4 door sedan and the more race-inspired Civic Type R.
