    Default Honda positioning City to compete with Corolla.

    Honda is now making Civic a premium compact sedan, positioning City to compete with Corolla.

    Corolla will no longer be in the same category as the Civic. This is one of the main reasons of the huge increase in the price of the Civic world wide.

    The next generation city will be a larger car, taking place of the Civic, with the same price tag it carries today.

    Civic has matured into a premium compact sedan, leaving City to rule the economy sedan market.

    The base Civic has everything that the Altis has and is in the same price range, however, it is a much more technologicially advanced car.

    People will not buy Civic for economy, most will buy it for the power, comfort and safety features it offers. This will never translate into high resale in Pakistan, hence only a small percentage will opt for the Civic. The rest have the popluar econoboxes City and Corolla (xli,gli, od) to choose from .

    I am a big fan of Toyota Trucks and SUVs. My intent here
    is not to put down anyones favorite car or hurt feelings.

    An excerpt from a Global Insight reads:

    "Finally, Toyota will present two key models, the replacement Corolla, which is rumoured to be changing its name to become the Auris, and the fourth generation Lexus LS.
    "

    This is a clear indication of the departure of Corolla from what it is today, I have no doubt that Corolla name will not be discarded by Indus for a long time to come.

    If you believe what the sales guy or the dealer says then you should not be on this forum and listening to us. Coz he is giving you a sales pitch, and buy just looking at you he can decide what type of car you are going to buy. I have confused a many of car dealers, coz I look like a normal car buyer but when I open my mouth theres is shut, lol! Anyways, its not the matter of who is tough and who will last. I am sure both are capable in their own ways. Ppl who are not close to cities tend to go with traditions, and folks in the Cities want new things. So that is where the corolla and Civic sales are. Pls by my last statement I mean nothing, in no context at all. Just that where cars are sold and which ones.

    So coming back to the point Civic and Corolla togather have moved up classes, one cannot be without the other, that is sort of the relationship they have.

    Some one put it very nicely. Without Honda, Toyota would have been too conservative and without Toyota Honda would have been too crazy.

    @Alpha
    The Corona was killed by the bigger corolla/Civic class not the camry. Camry has been there since the 80's and Premio is not Corona, it is was certain trim level offered in Corolla, Corona, Camry and now has become a vehicle name in its own class. Corona was never competition for the accord, it was in class not very well defined by automobile makers. I can go on, but I am not here to lecture so I cut short.

    i am not comparing basic civic with altis but i am just stressing on the fact that spending 1.3 million should get you luxuries but the basic model of civic lacks these luxuries as i have mentioned before as well they have even taken out the cd changer just imagine if you spend this much amount on an imported car u can get countless accessories but these people believe on the fact "dono hathon pairon se looto" believe me the basic model of civic is not worth the price it is being charged for it should not had been more then 1.1 million however vti oriel has a worth of 1..5 million that car should be charged that much but the basic model is surely over priced which will by the end of the day lead honda in loosing a majority of brand loyal customers

    What if, NexGen 'Rolla comes with much more advance features, much more accessories, amazing elegent and classy shape, much more room then a civic, much more powerful engine, much more economy, much much more things and the price is same as a City. It outclasses everything that Civic has. Will u buy or compare it with Civic there and then?

    Civic will be busted and Honda bedazzled!

    Honda is not foolish enuf to make such stupid mistakes, u can keep u'r opinion with u.

    whats wrong comparing corolla with City ?

    XLI & GLI are 1.3 and so is City idsl & Vario ,,
    City IDSL have more features than XLI and price is also lesser than XLI.

    as far as pakistani market is concerned
    honda atlas surely has placed city to compete with rolla

    dunno y ppl cant compare rolla with city
    maybe rolla attitude and that feeling of owing a bulky looking gracuios car comes into play compared to a dolphin shaped 1.3L limited car which happens to outperform rolla in many diff deparments.

    when we were out there with 8 lacs, we were not comparing civic with rolla

    we were comparing city with rolla.
