The 2019 India-bound Honda Civic facelift has just been revealed. Honda had announced earlier that the company will be launching three new cars in India in 2019. The new CR-V will flag off the entry with its launch in October and will be followed by the tenth-generation Civic.
The Tenth generation Honda Civic gets a reworked, more angular front bumper with chrome accents for the fog lamp housings and a chrome strip for the rear bumper. New designs for the alloy wheels. There’s also now a ‘Sport’ trim on offer internationally, with 18-inch wheels, a splitter-style rear bumper, rear spoiler and added black detailing for the fascia.
Inside, the Civic facelift gets Honda’s updated seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. This aside, there are expected to be no changes to the Civic’s interior.
Also standard on the Civic facelift is Honda‘s Sensing suite of safety features, which includes a collision warning and mitigation system with automatic braking, lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control and more.
For India, Honda is expected to introduce the Civic facelift with a 1.8-litre petrol engine that puts out 140hp and a 1.6-litre Earth Dreams diesel engine that is capable of 120hp and 300Nm – the same engine that’ll also be powering the CR-V. Additionally, Honda could also pair the diesel with a nine-speed automatic, just like the CR-V. The new Civic will be launched in the first half of 2019, and it is expected to be priced between Rs 16-20 lakh .
