2016 Honda Civic – This Is It!
We are just days away from the full reveal of the highly anticipated 2016 Honda Civic, but just days before the official reveal, the next generation Civic has been spied once again though this time, without wearing any sort of camouflage giving us our first look at the production spec Honda Civic, and it is quite a looker.
The production spec Honda Civic looks nearly identical to the renders we saw featuring the same prominent angular C shaped taillights, a very sleek and sloping fastback roof line and a brand new wheel design. Honda probably isn’t to happy that just a week before the reveal, the 2016 Honda Civic has been completely revealed. Other things we already know about the car is that it will feature a 1.5 liter turbocharged engine expected to produce 148 HP and 203 N.m of torque paired with either a 6 speed manual or CVT gearbox and will have a price tag between PKR 20-25 Lakhs.
It looks bigger and taller than the 9th Gen. Also in Pakistan ground clearance would be further enhanced and the combination of VTEC kicked in yo + Turbo in Pakistani fast and furious hands. Would be interesting.
The current n/a civic costs around pkr 23 lacs, how do u suggest this turbo charged civic would cost just 2 lacs more?
this civic will require at least euro 2 compatible gasoline otherwise failure of turbo will be common
Sir to my knowledge Honda uses Euro 4 standard emission engine, it says so on their ad.
sir i said “at least” euro 2……..euro 4 standard gasoline will take at least 40 years to come in pakistan in the prevailing conditions .otherwise our regular gasoline is not even of euro 2 standard 🙂
Looks are quite aggressive..
These types of showoffs are not accidental events… These are part of launching campaign, involving market tactics…
So Honda will never be annoyed to showoff their civic before official launch…
Honda said that they wanted to launch the new Civic at a more competitive price
Quite aggressive look with a turbo charged engine! how good could it be !!!
Now the new Corolla really looks dull in front of it!
import tax on 1.5L engine is lower than 1.8L engine. Next I don’t know if a 1.5L turbo engine is expensive to manufacture than a 1.8 non turbo engine. Based on the sales figure published yesterday here at pak wheels . Corolla has sold 5 times more than civic in the month of July-August. Honda will now look to lower prices
Toyota was successful because HONDA failed to introduce the NEW CITY. Probably the most foolish move they have made in decades.
Let’s see how civic impacts the market.
government has bound the refineries to upgrade their gasoline to euro ii standards before Q3 2016.
Lets hope for the best…….in this country,every new product can only be confirmed till its launched otherwise there are a lot of rumours we listen everyday……..anyhow this news is on PW so one can trust it for authenticity….
Bhai it was a business tactic….as a lot of people bought City as corolla’s soon to be dead xli was more expensive then the aspire model !!!
Sure they could have launched the new city here but then they will had to increase there prices as well which wasn’t a better option .. was it??
You maybe right. Cost of importing 1.5 would be less than 1.8litre but then again fitting it with turbo would cost round about the same or even more as I have read its prices if converted directly from US figures amount to 3lacs for a turbo kit.. And a lot of memes suggesting turbo is expensive
I heard that Honda is going to launch some hybrid variant in March 2016 or early? any one knows it?
just give it a little more power to about 180-190bhp and i am game, with better handling ofcourse. and no stupid spoilers…
It is not fair to Corolla with Civic. When PAMA writes Corolla in their sale figures, they mean all trims of Corolla which includes Xli and Gli too. Comparison of Civic is with Altis not other lower end trims and when you make that comparison, you don’t need any stats to know which of these cars are more on the roads. After making initial few shots on target at the time of release, Altis is again a dead car as its previous 2 models.
There is nothing stopping Honda from launching basic trim levels. Comparisons are made within a product category not trim levels. Civic will always compare to Corolla and that is 100% fair.
Man… Its Weird But I Think I saw This Model In Lahore :O
Im Not Lying….. I Only Saw Front Grill!!!
Btw when is the new civic going to be released in Pakistan?
Hey you writer of this review, who told you that honda is not happy with leak of this pic. Seems that CEO of honda japan gives you phone call to share his mood with you. I don’t why nerdy chaps like you get your reviews approved on this web site.
