When it comes to launching cars in time with the rest of the world, Pakistani automakers would not top the list. Pak Suzuki launched its world class flopship earlier this year in Pakistan while the rest of the world said goodbye to it around 2 years ago. Honda Atlas introduced new lights in the ongoing Honda City and called it the 2015 model and so on.
It is not uncommon for Pakistani car makers to launch vehicles rather late owing to a lack of competition in the Pakistani auto industry. However, Honda Atlas Cars Pakistan is going to change this attitude for a change with the Honda Civic. Earlier reports claimed that Honda Atlas may bring the 10th generation Honda Civic in 2017, but sources close to Honda Atlas Cars Pakistan have revealed to PakWheels that the company is ready to launch the upcoming new Civic in the 3rd quarter of 2016.
Honda Global will officially announce the 10th generation of Honda Civic in August this year with a global launch in the early 2016. The upcoming Civic will be powered by a 1.5-liter turbocharged engine from Honda’s new line of Earth Dreams Engines that are small in displacement but big on power with exceptional fuel economy. Like the rest of the world, Honda Atlas will also bring the 1.5-liter turbocharged engine in the 2016 Honda Civic in Pakistan, replacing the 1.8-liter with the existing Civic.
We have confirmed this news from other independent sources as well and we are confident we will see the new Civic even before we see the 6th generation Honda City in Pakistan.
