Honda Civic Review

When Honda let the Civic loose in India back in 2006, it created quite a flutter. Those who were used to their Citys found a natural upgrade, and to those who didn’t want the practical but bland Corolla, the Civic seemed tempting. It had a design that seduced, an interior that wouldn’t look out of place even today, and a motor that promised to excite.

Fast forward 13 years and the Civic’s recipe seems similar, just updated to be in sync with the times. Let’s dive deep and figure out if the new generation manages to wow.

Honda’s Civic has been priced from Rs 17.7 lakh to Rs 22.3 lakh as expected, and let’s be honest, it isn’t exactly the most practical car on the block. The low seating position is sure to get disapproval from the older folk, the CVT won’t cut it with the enthusiast and the space on offer won’t tempt the back-seat owner either. Also, one might argue that it needed a few more features such as memory seats, electric adjust for the co-driver, and front parking sensors to win favours with the buyers. 

But here’s the deal. None of that really matters when you look at it, and spend time with it. It’s got the design to wow, and the interior feels like it will outlast your grandkids. There’s a diesel engine now if you want to munch miles, and the smooth petrol remains likeable as ever.

If the Civic could talk, we’re sure the first words it’d say would be ‘Look at me!’ It looks properly swanky, and a direct descendant of the posh Honda Accord. Familiar Honda elements including the large grille dunked in chrome, honeycomb detailing in the vents and crisp character lines find their way onto this sedan too.

Actually, hang on. Should we be calling it a sedan? Because when you view it from the side, it looks more like a notchback with a raised rump than a conventional three-box sedan. And much like the old car, the Civic has a low-slung design, giving it a sporty ready-to-go stance. Full-LED headlamps and that awesome-looking set of 17-inch machine-finished alloy wheels add to its wow-factor.

Honda’s Civic isn’t the tallest when you compare it to its peers. However, it is the widest, and by a fair margin at that. The XL-sized triangular taillamps that flow onto the bootlid look super cool at night as the portion of the tail lamp on the boot lights up as well.

On the whole, the Civic’s design continues to be a strong point much like the older generation. While the design is noticeably busier, we feel will look appealing for years to come.

Deja vu. The feeling that the CIvic is driver focussed hits you once you get inside the cabin. The seating position is familiarly low and the dashboard wraps itself around you. It’s that familiar spaceship-esque feeling with the cool-blue and red lighting in the instrument cluster and a central console that’s tilted  ever-so-slightly towards the driver. But we do miss the drama of the old Civic’s split dashboard that housed a digital speedometer in the upper half.

Right, basics. With the Civic you get tilt and telescopic adjust for the steering wheel, and the seat can be adjusted 8 ways to help you get into a nice driving position. If you aren’t used to a low-seating car, you will need a few drives in the Civic before you’re entirely comfortable with the dimensions.

Also, the front seats feel narrow. Broader occupants will feel a lack of support for their shoulders. The flat seat base robs you of valuable underthigh support, forcing you to sit in a ‘knees up’ position. This isn’t much of a bother for the driver as the seat height can be adjusted to mitigate this issue. But the co-driver will most definitely feel the pinch, especially over a long journey. The option, is to push the seat all the way back, and stretch out.

At the rear, the issue with the low slung seating position is amplified because the door doesn’t open too wide. To get in, you end up putting a fair bit of pressure on your knee. And getting out too requires a bit of effort. Those considering the Civic for the elderly members in their family, please note.

The rear seat of the Honda isn’t generous in terms of space. It’s just about enough for a six-footer like me to sit behind my own driving position. Also, the width on the exterior hasn’t translated into room for three at the rear. While it is possible, it gets a bit cozy. With the central tunnel and the raised middle portion of the rear bench in play, the middle occupant isn’t particularly comfortable either. Do note that the middle occupant doesn’t get a headrest either, fixed or adjustable. Also, if you’re taller than 6 you’ll feel a bit too close to the roof. With the window line rising linearly, it’s natural to feel slightly claustrophobic here.

But the Civic wins back some brownie points in terms of practicality. There are ample cubby holes in the front half of the cabin, and it gets some versatile storage around the front armrest as well that bumps up the utility quotient. At the rear, you get door bins and a pair of cupholders in the central armrest. At 430 litres boot space is enough, but far lower than other options in the segment. We wish Honda offered the 60:40 split for the rear seats to improve practicality.

The Civic is impressive on other fronts, like quality. Where most of the old car’s cabin was hard plastic, the new Civic is a welcome surprise. The dashboard is bathed in soft-touch material that feel pleasant to touch. Plush leather upholstery, with leather inserts on the doorpad round off the experience nicely. We like that the materials used feel like the durable kind, and not fragile like we’ve seen on a few Euro cars.

If you pick the Honda Civic you get to choose between two drivetrain options - a 1.8-litre petrol paired with a CVT, or a 1.6-litre diesel paired with a 6-speed manual gearbox. It is surprising that the fun petrol isn’t offered with a manual, and the commute-friendly diesel isn’t offered with an automatic!

Honda Civic Diesel

First, let’s tackle the diesel since it’s new to the Civic. This engine is familiar, we’ve seen it in the CR-V. But it gets a manual gearbox instead of the slick 9-speed automatic. What instantly comes to the fore is the noise and vibration insulation. When switched on, the 1.6-litre motor does make quite a racket if you’re standing outside the car. Get in, and you’d wonder where all of that noise went. Yes, you do hear a small thrum (that gets louder as you push it) and a negligible amount of vibration on the pedals. But, not much else.

It’s easy to get going, thanks to the typically Honda light clutch. We don’t see this being a bother in bumper to bumper traffic. Inside the confines of the city, you’ll be able to drive with ease as there’s enough responsiveness from low revs. You’ll be in second or third gear for the most time, which offers brisk acceleration - especially past 1800rpm. When the turbo is spooling, the throttle response feels immediate too, letting you tackle city duties with ease.

Honda engineers have given it tall ratios to boost fuel efficiency.  So, when you’re at 80kmph in sixth gear, you can’t simply step on the accelerator to overtake. You have to downshift to fifth to make progress. If you wish to cruise comfortably at 100-120kmph, this motor is more than happy to do that all day long.

All said and done, the diesel engine does make up for a lot of it by offering stellar mileage. ARAI-certified efficiency stands at a mind-boggling 26.82kmpl. In out test, the Civic diesel managed an impressive 16.81kmpl in the city and 20.07kmpl on the highway.

Honda Civic Petrol

Honda’s legendary R18 motor remains as refined and silent as ever. Yes, this is a slightly tweaked version of the same engine that we were served over a decade ago. That said, in no part does it feel outdated. With 141PS and 174Nm on tap, there’s more than enough grunt to get you through your daily grind, and weekend roadtrips.

Honda has tuned the CVT aptly for everyday commutes. Driving with a light foot is quite relaxing, especially considering the pin-drop silence from the motor. The gearbox doesn’t feel confused at part-throttle either. While it is responsive, much like every other CVT, it doesn’t like being hurried. Even in Sports mode, where the gearbox holds on to higher revs for longer, it doesn’t feel particularly fun. Yes, you can take control over the ‘gears’ using the paddle shifters, but that doesn’t feel engaging either.

Those wanting the Civic for the office commute wouldn’t have a complaint with this. However, the enthusiast will sulk for sure. A manual transmission with this free-revving petrol motor would’ve been a lot of fun, we’re sure.

Honda is offering a total of six airbags as standard. There’s ABS with EBD as well as other tech such as vehicle stability management (ESC), and hill start assist. It also features something Honda calls ‘Agile Handling Assist’ that helps steer the car without a fuss at higher speeds in corners.

Pros & Cons of Honda Civic

CarDekho Experts
CarDekho Experts:

What Honda has carried over from the older Civic then, is its uncanny ability to tug at your heart strings. It’s among the few cars out there that makes you want it. And you can’t put that on a brochure! 

Things We Like

  • Safety. Four disc brakes, six airbags, and tech like vehicle stability management.
  • Stunning design. Makes an impression equivalent to more expensive luxury cars.
  • Ride and handling package. Tuned beautifully for India, the Civic laughs at potholes and broken roads while making you grin on the twisties.
  • Build quality. A likeable blend of ‘built-to-last’ and luxury makes the Civic feel premium.

Things We Don't Like

  • Petrol engine doesn’t get a manual, whereas the commuter diesel doesn’t get an automatic. Limits appeal for enthusiasts and urban commuters.
  • Low seating position. Makes getting in and out tiresome for elderly or those with joint aches.
  • Missing equipment. Front parking sensors, rear charging socket, electric adjust for co-driver’s seat are some of the bits that should’ve been bundled in.

Stand Out Features

  • Pros & Cons of Honda Civic

    LaneWatch: a camera mounted on the left ORVM relays a video feed to the central touchscreen. Useful for parking, changing lanes and driving in heavy traffic.

  • Pros & Cons of Honda Civic

    Remote Engine starter (petrol only). Start up the car before you get in and get the AC running too.

  • Pros & Cons of Honda Civic

    7-inch full LCD instrument cluster. A host of information right in your peripheral vision.

    Honda Civic Colours

    • Love my Civic 1.8 iVtec The car is 12years old by 2019 and still feels like day 1 The engine has just done over 102000 KMs and the performance is just still surprising and exciting till date Has Loads of space in the cabin and The beige coloured Seats and upholstery gives a special airy feel The steering is slightly on the Heavier side feels like a task when pulling through tight gaps and small roads The headlights have an amazing spread but the intensity of the lights are just on the dimmer side which doesn"t feel so good and confident on the highway during night times so it"s better to go with After market LED bulbs just like I did and the experience afterwards is just blisteringly awesome City Fuel economy is around 11 kmpl which is quite impressive for the size of the engine and the power it offers highway fuel economy is around 14kmpl(110 cruising speed with boosts up to 150km occasionally) and can be pushed to 18 with Economic and conservative driving.Regular services do not cost much but tinkering works and any other mechanical parts replacement are gonna piss you off so be careful around Tight spaces and your driving style The ground clearance is not much of a con it only becomes a problem if you have 4 or 5 adults onboard and crossing speed breakers The car has an aerodynamic shape and which reduces Wind Drag and improves ride quality Fuel economy and performancePersonal Top speed of the car is close to 210 while company claimed and other sources say it can reach 225kmh The car has an incredibly low height which makes it mission impossible for elderly people to get in and get out The 6 speaker (4 speakers + 2 Tweeters) Honda audio provides a blissful experience with Aux connectivity The boot is adequately sized at 430L which I personally find as more than adequate (segment lower cars have larger capacity boots)With 50L of fuel tank capacity (5 reserve)Long trips can be accomplished without fuel stops

    • Very reliable.Not a thing has gone wrong ever since i purchased this car.Upgraded my infotainment system to the sony xav ax 5000 system thats android auto compatible.Performance is quite good.Upgrading from a santro, Needs a bit of getting to the acceleration characteristics.Needs a lot more throttle input, But once you get used to it, You'll find the engine is very responsive!gc is good, But the wheelbase being longer, Need to be a little mindful over breakers, But its not restrictive in anyway.Have driven fairly aggressively within the city and its never bottomed out.Really good service as well!.

    • Usually, a lot of migrates go in for second hand cars. I don't understand the logic behind it. Could be that they haven't driven a car in India or wherever they came from. No issues with them. I had a Hyundai Xcel which was a 2 door hatchback. I happened to visit the Honda showroom in my city and found the Honda Civic- a European model hatchback that was up for sale. This used to be the demo car. I picked up the offer and I'm happy with it.

    • Loved this car but the only drawback is the lower ground clearance which is not according to Indian roads. A medium size speed breaker can also be felt with this car. I don't feel like driving it when I see path holes on the road. A higher ground clearance should have been anticipated by Honda for Indian roads.

    • Overall performance of this car is excellent except average which is low it is driven only 30000+ kms in 14 years due to another car swift of 2007 model already sold after completed more than one lack kms.Now i want to buy one cvt car with best features like nissan magnite in cvt model.

    February 15, 2019 By Team ZigWheels



    Honda Civic
    Honda Civic is a 5 seater Sedan with the last recorded price of ₹ 17.95 - 22.36 Lakh. It is available in 10 variants, 1 engine option and 2 transmission options : Automatic (CVT) and Manual. Other key specifications of the Civic include a Kerb Weight of 1268 kg and Bootspace of 430 litres. The Civic is available in 5 colours. The mileage of Civic ranges from 16.5 kmpl to 25.35 kmpl.

    CarWale's Take

    • Good Things

      • Striking exterior design
      • Feature-rich cabin 
      • Plush ride quality 
    • Could be Better

      • Petrol engine lacks power 
      • Interior finish needs improvement 
      • Pricey

    Civic Verdict

    The new Honda Civic isn’t a revolutionary product that the eighth generation car was. That said, it does have a striking exterior design, feature loaded cabin and plush ride quality. However, things like a more powerful petrol engine and a superior interior fit and finish would have made the car even more alluring.

    Civic Review

    Now with the prices out for the Civic, we will have a better perspective, as to where it stands in the pecking order and if this car was worth the long wait. In this review we have driven the diesel version of the car and on paper it seems to have what the petrol version lacked – engine punch and a manual gearbox to lure the enthusiast.

    What is it?

    Why I would buy it?

    Striking exterior design, long equipment list, ride quality 

    Why I would avoid it?

    Low seating makes it difficult to get in and out of, expensive diesel variant

    A few weeks ago, we reviewed the petrol version of the eighth generation of Honda Civic and came away quite impressed. Now with the prices out for the Civic, we will have a better perspective, as to where it stands in the pecking order and whether this car was worth the long wait. For this review, we drove the diesel version of the car and on paper it seems to have what the petrol version lacked – engine punch and a manual gearbox to lure the enthusiast. .  

    As far as looks are concerned, the Civic looks sporty and well-balanced from every angle you look at it. The car's silhouette looks really nice thanks to the coupe-like swooping roofline, stubby boot, short overhangs and the tastefully designed 17-inch alloys. Upfront, the well-detailed LED headlamps with the daytime running strip outlining the lower portion look striking. The signature Honda grille is more protruding here than in some of their other cars which adds to its dynamic appearance. At the rear the new Honda Civic looks distinctive thanks to the stubby boot section, heavily raked rear windscreen and the boomerang-shaped tail lamps. 

    Based on Honda’s new global platform which also underpins the tenth generation Accord, the new Civic is not only 22kg lighter than the previous generation car, thanks to the use of high strength steel it also boasts of a 25% more rigid body. 

    How is it on the inside?

    We will only briefly dwell upon the interiors as we have covered it more in-depth in the petrol variant's review which you can read here. The Civic’s dash looks modern thanks to the flurry of asymmetric cues. It is well thought-out with most controls falling to hand easily. It's not perfect as the placement of USB, HDMI and 12V charging ports, that are hidden behind the centre console, are extremely difficult to locate. Overall plastic quality is quite good but lower down, the hard plastic around the gear lever isn’t great and fit and finish is a notch or two down on the standards set by cars like the Octavia. 

    The large seven inch infotainment system comes loaded with features like two USB sockets, one HDMI jack, Bluetooth, reverse camera with zoom function, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and a sweet sounding eight-speaker audio system. The system also houses aircon controls, which actually you don’t end up using as you also get conventional physical controls that are easier to use. What could have been better is the display quality which looks out of place on a Rs 20 lakh plus car. What you won’t complaint about is the digital instrument cluster. The sporty fonts and the colours are easy to read and with the help of the steering mounted buttons you can see and control music, Bluetooth telephony, phonebook and trip computer. 

    Like the old Civic the new car too is low slung and as a result, getting in and out isn’t an easy affair. Once inside, the driver seat is a comfortable place to be in and thanks to the electric adjust its easy to find the ideal driving position. Visibility from the driver seat is good and except for the heavily raked rear windscreen, it is easy to judge the car's extremities even in heavy traffic. The rear seat is surprisingly comfortable. There’s adequate amount of knee-room for rear-seat passengers with decent thigh support and a comfortable backrest angle. The same can’t be said about the headroom though, as the sloping roofline makes it tight for anyone above average height. 

    Like most Honda cars, the Civic’s cabin is very practical with loads of bottle and cup holders present for both front and rear seats. Special mention must also go to the large storage bin under the front armrest that is big enough to swallow large items and it also houses two cup holders. The boot at 430litres is not particularly big and is just about enough for your family’s weekend luggage.  

    As far as equipment goes, the Honda Civic in the top ZX comes loaded with features. This includes premium features like electronic parking brake with auto hold, sunroof, auto dimming rear view mirror, electric driver seat adjust, dual zone climate control, keyless go amongst others. Honda hasn’t skimped on safety equipment and comes with six airbags, ESP, ABS, ISOFIX child seat anchor points as standard. Like in the recently launched CRV, this car too comes with Lane-Watch function that activates the left mirror mounted camera to let you know if there are any cars in your blind spot when you are changing lanes or turning at junctions.

    How does it drive?

    The Civic diesel is powered by a 1.6-litre turbo diesel engine. Although the basic architecture is more or less the same as the one found on the Honda City, they differ quite a lot in terms of materials used and this engine also employs a VGT turbocharger which helps it produce 20bhp more. 

    The first thing one notices when the motor starts is that it feels significantly more refined than the smaller 1.5-litre engine found on the Honda City. Step on the gas and the immediate responses of the engine are impressive and the Civic accelerates in a linear manner. Out on the highway it is deceptively quick, whisking you forward from as little as 1800rpm and it’s only when you look at the speedo that you realise that you’re going much faster than you anticipated. The strong midrange also makes overtaking easy and this makes for a good long distance car. On the downside, the gearing on the diesel Civic is very tall and you end up shifting a lot especially at low speeds. Thankfully the manual gearbox is one of the best we have experienced in a long time. The position of the gearlever is perfect, the throws are short and the shifts are smooth. Where the tall gearing helps is in terms of highway cruising and fuel efficiency. Even when you are doing 120 kmph the engine is at a peaceful 2000rpm which makes cruising a cinch and the 26.8kmpl fuel efficiency claim believable. What makes it even more soothing is the superb sound insulation as one can hardly hear the engine clattering under normal driving, 

    Similar to what we experienced on the petrol version, the ride quality of the Civic is one its biggest strengths. In fact, the diesel Civic feels even more planted thanks to the additional 50kg in weight. At town speeds, the Civic simply excels thanks to its absorbent low speed ride, delivered despite the low profile 17-inch tyres. Well-judged spring rates helps this sedan feel supple yet well controlled. Even over rutted surfaces, the suspension has a surprisingly good level of crash-free bump absorption, and one doesn’t feel most imperfections. The car also does an excellent job of cutting wind noise, but at higher speeds, a fair bit of tyre noise seeps through in the cabin.

    When it comes to handling, the Civic changes direction eagerly. The steering is fast, smooth and accurate and even when you push the car hard it retains its composure really well. The engines punchy power combined with the slick manual gearbox makes the diesel variant much more engaging to drive than the petrol powered car.

    Should I buy one?

    With the prices just out, we can now give a more definitive opinion on the new Honda Civic. The Civic is priced in between Rs 17.7 lakh to 22.3 lakh for the top diesel variant. This makes it the most expensive D-segment sedan behind the mighty Skoda Octavia. We feel Honda has just missed a trick here, as a more competitive price would have made the new Civic an alluring buy. Although the diesel gets only a manual gearbox, it is still much more expensive than the petrol CVT. But for the enthusiast, the diesel is the car to buy as the engine feels more eager and the manual gearbox just makes the driving experience more exhilarating.

    Where does it fit in?

    The new Honda Civic goes up against the Skoda Octavia, Toyota Corola and the Hyundai Elantra. It also has to contend with SUVs like the Hyundai Creta, Tata Harrier and the Jeep Compass.

    But here is the dacha. The torture ended. I breathed a sigh of relief, thinking that the worst was over.

    You will also be interested:

    Small, fat (although she had been playing football for so many years, and to this day physical education is her best friend - but what. Can you do, fat is accumulating according to his personal plan) with extremely large breasts, she seemed to herself ugly. The face is ugly round, the eyes are faceless watery, the nose is crocheted, like an owl's - only for some reason at school everyone was.

    Teasing with a frog.
