Honda Civic. Why was it discontinued?

Recommended Posts

The 2017 Civic hatchback is currently being showcased at the Bangkok International Motor Show. It's powered by a 1.5-litre turbo 4-cylinder engine producing 173hp. Styling is differentiated from the that of the sedan with unique front and rear bumpers that have large faux inlets and outlets. The shortened rear hosts a tailgate and roof spoiler and C-shaped taillights.

The styling looks a little busy but otherwise I think looks pretty good!

The facelifted Honda Civic has been launched in Thailand and is currently on display at the 2018 Thailand International Motor Expo 2018 and this is the one that will make its way to India. This one receives some subtle cosmetic changes - a new front bumper design, new fog lamp surround + a new horizontal chrome strip in the rear bumper diffuser area. 

Inside, there's an updated 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. It also features Honda's Sending advanced driving assistance system (only on the 1.5 RS model). The Honda Sensing suite includes adaptive cruise control with low-speed follow, lane keeping assist, road departure mitigation system, collision mitigation braking system, and automatic high-beam system.

Autocar India recently revealed that Honda will bring the Civic sedan to India early next year. The India-bound Civic will come with a 140hp, 1.8-litre petrol engine mated to either a six-speed manual or an automatic gearbox. And, like the upcoming  CR-V, the Civic will also be available with a diesel engine for the very first time (a 120hp, 1.6 litre unit). You can read more about that here: https://www.autocarindia.com/car-news/honda-civic-india-launch-in-early-2019-409658

The Honda Civic Versatilist concept was on display at the Tokyo Auto Salon.  Based on the Civic hatchback, the concept sports noticeably crossover cues. It sports grey body cladding,  a redesigned bumper  which features large round fog lights and a wider centre air intake, a restyle rear bumper with a slim central tailpipe, 18-inch alloy wheels from the HR-V RS and a fin-shaped door appliqué.

Unless you are an enthusiastic and want this for sports, buying a hatchback is waste

Finally Civic got some Civic sense. What engine is it using? I saw the video review of Zigwheel, and they said the engine is the same that was used in 2006 models. Is it right?

Honda’s offering two engine options for India - a 1.8-litre, 141hp petrol and the 1.6-litre Earth Dreams diesel engine, making 120hp and 300Nm (the same engine that powers the CR-V)

I was talking about the Gasoline engine, is it the same that was in 8th generation model?

I think Honda got the engine and gearbox combinations wrong for Civic.

Enthusiasts would have preferred petrol to be available with manual (instead of CVT) and general public would have loved diesel AT (instead of manual).

But again, everything will depend on the price and this segment is anyway seeing a downward trend.

Yes they should have given the option of manual too. I think soon, the manual gears will become the thing of past. I know people who are driving for almost 20 years and they still mess up with the clutch, specially the ladies, who have this habit of unnecessarily pressing clutches, for no reason.

Honda has to price it lower than Toyota Altis.

The 1.8 i-VTEC unit is a revised version of unit Honda offered in the 8th generation model.

Hope that engine offers better performance and fuel efficiency. I know someone spending 16-22L on car will not care about fuel efficiency, but it still matters

Seriously.....Honda pricing Civic above Corolla Altis and other rivals in that segment? 
I think Honda should reconsider the price.

Honda City has more equipment, more features, than Corolla Yaris and yet its priced lower than Yaris. I am not saying that Yaris is by any means inferior than City and i am not saying that its a failure, its just that on the roads of Delhi, I have seen very few Yaris.

Civic has to be priced in a similar fashion, when compared to Altis.

Honda says that the 1.8 petrol will return 16.5kpl (ARAI figure) which is just about 0.2kpl less than ARAI figures for the Corolla (also a 1.8-liter petrol) and the Octavia 1.4 turbo-petrol. Real world economy though will depend on how a person drives and traffic.

Do you believe on what a company would claim? A user review will give the actual figures of the actual fuel economy.

Fuel economy from a user review will give you a closer estimate of what you can expect but as I said before that the real world economy will depend on how a person drives, how much traffic he faces, commute distance etc. ARAI is a perfect world scenario.

It is hard to say at this point if the Civic will be a success or not, Honda hasn't launched the car yet and all prices are currently just estimates. One thing to keep in mind is that if a brand has made a name for itself in a segment it is likely to perform better. The Civic made a name for itself when we had the old model and that will likely a big factor in its sales. Same is true with the City, we've had the car for multiple generations so it's got a name that people recognise while the Yaris is just the proverbial "new kid on the block".
