The new 2019 Honda Civic has been in talks from quite sometime now. The speculations are likely to be buried soon. Having encountered testing several times with camouflage cover, the all-new Civic is expected to go on sale in March. This comes after it was spotted testing on the streets of Bengaluru recently in its production guise.



It is the tenth generation Civic that will be on offer. Speaking to a few dealers reveal that the new sedan will be out for grabs from early March. The US market got the facelifted Civic in August last year and this is the same model that Honda will be offering to the Indian audience.



The all-new Civic features a chunky design enveloped in a coupe-like structure that’s bigger in dimensions and sportier than the older model. The sedan gets wide grille and a full-width splitter at the front. The recent video reveals that it will come with LED headlamps, LED taillights and shark-fin antenna. There are chrome accents for an upgraded feel. While the US spec model comes with 18-inch alloys, the Indian spec variant is expected to feature smaller 17-inch wheels.



Under the hood, there will be an upgraded i-VTEC 1.8-litre petrol engine that pumps out a max power of 141 PS and a peak torque of 174 Nm, expected to be available with both 6-speed manual and a CVT. For the first time, the Civic will be offered with a diesel power mill. However, the powertrain details are not yet out. We are expecting it to have the one that powers the Honda CR-V, a 1.6-litre engine that puts out 120 PS and 300 Nm of power and torque respectively. The diesel engine is expected to come with only a manual transmission.


Expected to be priced between Rs 16 and 20 lakh (ex-showroom), the all-new Honda Civic will compete against the likes of the Toyota Corolla Altis and the Skoda Octavia. The executive sedan market is set to witness a severe competition in the coming months and with all the buzz going around, it seems like Honda might win the battle here.
