    Question Upgrading from 8th to 9th Gen Civic

    Dear All,
    Please suggest.
    Shall I upgrade from 8th gen to 9th Gen
    Currently I have 2012 model 8th gen Oriel Prosmatic and I can afford 2012-2013 Model 9th gen oriel Prosmatic.
    Is it worth it or not.

    Things to Compare:

    • Interior
    • Exterior
    • Fuel Economy
    • Motor way Driving
    • City Driving


    Experts and experienced people who have upgraded are requested to help me in making my decision.
    Thanks

    Innocent_Devil can help you best. Must be a very decisive factor because of which he sold his 8th gen for a 9th but then went back after some time.

    No matter what people think about the 9gen. But when i drove both of them. 9gen is surely an upgrade worth it, talking in reference to drive. Many people do not like its shape but everybody has his or her opinion which is restricted to themselves.

    Bro why are you upgrading? Just to have a newer car or looking for a different experience?
    Through I would say if you want a bit economical car with good interior better ground clearance and bit more feature go for 9 gen if you want a CAR with good high speed stability like the sound of twin exhaust can life with a bit rattling interior than stick to 8 gen

    Spano bhai I personally have never owned or driven 8th gen but I have 9th gen Civic, so here is my opnion regarding both

    Interior - 9th gen is superior because it has IMID screen, better seats, more features and modern looking interior.

    Exterior - It is personal preference, initially 9th gen looks a bit dull but when one installs larger rims in it, 9th gen looks hot.

    Motorway Driving - To me 9th gen because for longer journeys it is more comfortable due to better seats and a bit softer suspension but for proper driver feel like overtaking cars or changing lanes at higher speeds then 8th is better because it has more grip and stability. But i will recommend 9th gen because once I sat in 8th gen with my friend and went for a long 20-25 min drive, i really got tired because the passenger seat was really hard.

    City Driving - 9th gen will be easy to drive around because of the comfort factor and EPS, but for sporty experience 8th gen all the way.

    Rest experts, can shed some more light on this matter.

    after reading this thread most of the comments are coming from guys who either driven these cars once or twice and not owed either of them ..so as guy who owned both of these 2009 8th gen and 2014 9th gen trust me 8th gen is by far the better car .I am sure people who owns both will agree with me on this .engine is the same suspension is the same only diff is interior .but the driving pleasure of 8th gen is by far the best with a great road grip which 9th gen lack of .9 th gen is light compare to 8th gen .and maybe its me but the design of 8th gen is just out of the world .

    so for me 8th gen is better and you should stick with it .

    spano bhai keep 8th gen, 9th gen looks ugly especially the front grill.

    some people will find it funny but I found 7th gen to be more comfortable than 8th especially the back seats.

    @fireblade @Bilalicious @fouadbakht @InNoCeNt_DeViL @ali.archilounge @autophile @Sk_KingpiN @peace-maker
    Both are really nice cars
    And its a matter of personal prefernce and choice
    No doubt 8th gen is the best Civic ever assembled here
    That doesnt mean 9th gen is bad
    9th gen just lacks that punch and the so called " Civic " factor
    8th gen has all the style and beauty but 9th gen is better for our local bad and broken roads
    It is something like a Corolla with lil bit of driving pleasure but lacks the driving pleasure Civic used have in all prev gens 6th 7th and 8th

    I kept both Civics side be side for sometime around 1.5 month
    Initially after spending so much on the new one i was in denial ( i knew 8th gen was better for me but still the sum of 25 lacs forced me to think and believe its a worthy upgrade ) my heart was telling me to sell 9th gen and keep 8th gen but then later i disposed off the 8th gen since i got a really nice offer and around 2 lacs above the market price so i sold it
    The 1st day when I brought 9th gen home i was loving it
    The new features like imid display eco button and the smooth and soft drive of new civic really impressed me something i never expected from a civic
    But then next day when i was going to college in the morning i decided to take 8th gen with since 9th gen wasnt insured
    The moment i sat in the car 8th gen i said to myself
    " What the Hell Ahmed ! Seriously , you just spent 25 lacs on a similar thing , this thing gives almost same feel "
    Then i was getting late
    I did overspeeding that day and drove at breakneck speed
    Took some sharp turns at even 80 km/h
    Man what a road grip this car has
    The 9th gen will flip over 2 times if you try to do this in it ...

    Khair its like a love story
    I always had a crush with most of the cars i kept or have
    But 8th gen is like true love ...

    Anyways here is my analysis for daily routine drive

    8th gen over 9th gen

    Its a gem
    A pure gorgeous beauty
    Better styling
    Better acceleration ( 8th gen is 1.8 seconds faster from 0 to 100 )
    Much Better road grip at higher speeds , 9th gen feels so light and like a 9th gen corolla after 120
    Better handling at corners
    Better interior plastics and finishing
    That curvy multiplex meter and dash layout looks better and attractive than 9th gen civic
    Rear reading lights
    Better side mirror indicator design
    Lovely seating position literally gives a feel as if lait k gari chala rahay ho aap
    Dual exhaust finisher
    A great handbrake design and placement i like it
    A great road presence
    Its purely a Man's car as fouad bhai once said


    9th gen over 8th gen

    New shape
    A great car if you are status conscious ( 99% of the ppl just change 8th gen becoz of this factor )

    Better fuel economy
    Soft and extremely comfortable seats ( non leather version )
    Better visibility
    Much much better road clearance just like a Corolla
    I mid display
    Auto off headlights
    Remote trunk opener
    Climate control
    Cruise control
    Better and a bit soft suspension as compared to 8th gen 9th gen feels really soft and smooth however i had michelins in 9th gen and have euro stars in reborn may be thats the reason
    More comfortable for our bad roads
    Once i crossed a really rough and broken road infact it wasnt a road at 80 km/h
    9th gen surely beats 8th gen here
    Solid and heavy doors

    But you cant get best of both Worlds
    Since 9th gen beats 8th gen in above mentioned aspects it lacks that " Civic Fun and punch "

    I would adv save money for 10th gen Civic
    I am sure it will be much better than 9th gen and 8th gen too
    Good Luck !

    We have both. I really like the drive feel of the 9th gen over the older one. It may very well be the lighter steering wheel that makes most of the difference. Upgrade would be definitely worth it. If you decided to get one, _please_ don't get one with navi. Its navi sucks. The navi unit sucks so much that you may consider waiting for the 10th gen and not get the current car altogether! I would if I were you.
