    Pathetic move by Honda.

    Honda Civic a status symbol. Yea right .... people who have money now buy the Land Cruisers and the imports like Mark2, Accord, Versosa etc.

    Its nothing more than a simple sedan. And the pictures show one thing for sure ... it aint fully equipped either.

    I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it..and so restriction of free thought and free speech is the most dangerous of all subversions.

    About all the talk of 'market positioning' and 'repositioning' of the new Civic, I wonder how much say Atlas Honda actually has about the cars they make. I figure that whatever Honda Japan tells them to do, they follow suit.

    So when Honda globally introduced a single 1.8 SOHC engine in the new Civic, that's what they were bound to introduce. I doubt there will be a 'cheaper' 1.6 version coming out ever, because of all the difficulties of cramming the old engine bay into the new (smaller) one.

    As far as selling to 'seths' and their employees is concerned, Atlas Honda wouldn't care **** if every chaprasi owned a Civic. True the introduction of the Fit in the USA now means the new Civic is a little more upscale globally (between the Fit/City and Accord) but the same applies to the Corolla (comes between the Vios/Belta and Camry in most markets). The current 'rolla is often referred to as the 'baby Lexus' in alot of American reviews.

    Economics gives us the inverse price elasticity relationship between complementary goods. So when petrol prices rise, sales of cars should go down (especially those with larger engines). Although Honda claims the new 1.8 engine is as fuel-efficient as a 1.5 (thumbs up to Atlas for bringing a current engine this time), I doubt it will be warmly-welcomed by our public.

    The crampness for rear passengers has been talked about alot too, the new Civic is a "driver's car" and not very passenger-friendly. The ride for rear passengers is also a concern, I read a Singaporean review saying the rear ride is bumpy, harsh and noisy.

    My one-liner on the new Civic: if the Oriel manual was for 13 lacks, it would make a very smart buy (with all its cons). The new prices are just too much and should fall soon, otherwise we will be seeing ads soon about "delivery within one week".

    @exanaxe..

    i dont think tht inverse price elasticity r/ship holds valid here..cos each one of us thinks to install CNG kits (no matter whether u own a Prado) but u may say 2nd Hand model of New Civic will be a perfect substitute for Corolla..cos the re-sale value of the New Model Civic will drop due to extremely high price (as it always) and the customer will stay on the same utility curve due to more n more choices available

    100 batoan ki aik baat, agar civic itni achi hoti to hamein yeh sab batein karni he na partein! I'd been waiting for this car since feb but when i got to have a closer look and considering the price... it has disappointed the hell out of me! choice is a relative concept afterall! it would sell anyway!

    Very inetersting post by someone... If you dont like us drooling over Corollas and Civics then go away from Pakwheels.....

    Firstly this is a forum for everyone and crticism if valid may be expressed in gentlemanly terms.
    Secondly why are you offended if soemone criticises your choice of vehicle especially if it is a Corlla or Civic or Shitty etc... I just belive this denotes either a lack of imagination or ljust simply a herd mentality that Pakistanis are prone to.

    Any difference forem the mundane and the run of the mill and we all run for cover... and dont like it. everyone wants to live herded together with the rest in Defence or Allama Iqbal town... Ask anyone move outside town and you will have fresh air but they will find a million excuses.Everyone should either be an engineer or a doctor or now in banking or have an MBA etc etc.

    A corolla should always be white and a Civic mostly Silver or white or if you are really adventurous black.... Imagination or Insecurity.

    Pakwheels is for car talk.....................but some people dont consider Paki assembled Civics and Corollas cars. They consider them transport appliances akin to washing machines and fridges......

    Lets have a vote. Who on Pakwheels would if given a choice between a Corolla and an Audi or Alfa Romeo all other things being equal ( ie dealer network etc ) buy a Corolla....??????

    Controversial. Lets have it guys.. Invective and abuse all around.

    @hsnmz... who said that the Civic in dubai is worth 1.5 miliion in pkrs???...^o)

    Dude... you can get a fairly well equipped Civic at around 60K dirhams... and mind it.. that fairly wel equipped civic is much more luuxurious than yr 15 lakh top of the line model!!...

    to make it even simpler for you....60K dhms=9.5 lakhs!!
    RX-7? An RX-7? Really? I hope you know it's just a sports car with a washing machine under the hood.

    So.. ppl in the end it is HOnda Atlas which shud be put to blame... and somewhat the Upper middle class pakistani public also...for running behind Civic's like crazy and paying huge amounts of own...

    but in the end i'd still say the base 1.8 civic is a better car than the base 1.8 altis!!
