Honda may offer the Honda Civic in India with the 1.8-litre i-VTEC naturally aspirated petrol engine and the 1.6-litre i-DTEC turbocharged diesel engine.

The latest development was confirmed by Yoichiro Ueno, President and CEO, Honda Cars India. Speaking to the news publication: Mr. Ueno said: “The Civic will be driven in later this year, and this will be placed over the City sedan.”

The Honda Civic was discontinued in India when it was in its eighth generation and the ninth-gen model was completely skipped. Now, Honda has decided to bring back the car in its tenth generation. The fully redesigned Honda Civic is underpinned by an all-new modular platform that forms the basis for even the fifth-gen Honda CR-V and the tenth-gen Honda Accord.

Honda offers the Honda Civic internationally with a variety of turbocharged and naturally aspirated petrol engines and even a turbocharged diesel engine. In India, Honda is expected to offer the 1.8-litre i-VTEC naturally aspirated petrol engine (141 PS/174 Nm) and the 1.6-litre i-DTEC turbocharged diesel engine (120 PS/300 Nm).

Main features of the 2018 Honda Civic should include LED headlamps with LED DRLs, 17-inch alloy wheels, LED tail lamps, dual-zone automatic climate control, 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with navigation and Apple CarPlay, electric parking brake with brake hold function, power driver’s seat, leather upholstery, multi-angle rearview camera and six airbags.
