Honda has been a trendsetter and especially in Pakistan people find it very hard to accept change. I don't want to sound bias just because I recently purchased one ;) but because the surprise that this car gave me in so many aspects. Firstly came the price tag which was a little pinchy however not very bad compared to other cars in the category for example the altis which is a 1.6. Secondly came the looks which people compared that to the city, but believe me once you notice the car for the second or third time it looks good and eventually grows over you. Thirdly the drive and performance was ecstatic although when I first heard about the Eco drive I thought that must have reduced the horses running in the engine but the Extra 10Hp from the reborn engine can quite be felt when you floor the pedal even the mighty swift can't pull away till 100 now, but that being said the car has been a pleasure to drive, it doesn't provoke you to speed rather tells you to enjoy a simple drive with your loved ones. I feel the main reason for the civic not really being hot news is a catchy name, so I decided to call it the "Mutant". If your car requirement is that of a luxurious, powerful yet economical as well as a hight tech and safe family sedan, then without a second thought GO FOR IT.
