    Default Acceleration not that good

    Aoa, I own a Honda Civic Reborn (8th Gen, VTi Oriel, Prosmatec) 2011 model. It has always been driven with care and never driven roughly. I am the first owner and have had the car for 5 years now and it's running is still under 50,000. Recently I have noticed that the cars acceleration isn't what a Reborn should be giving, it doesn't feel much like I'm driving an 1800 CC Honda Civic. :/ I tried to launch the car from 0 in drive and floored the pedal, the car didn't even spin and it was a normal launch. I get it that launch>spin but I don't know, I feel like it doesn't have that much power. I recently got the throttle body serviced, the exterior serviced, new spark plugs (ngk), catalytic converter serviced, 1 new motor mount and changed tyres with stock eurostar (I know they suck :p). Please tell me the bitter truth if Civics are underpowered or whatever, I just want to know why I can't feel that launch, that I felt in a Honda City 1.5 :/

    I'm also not happy with the overall speed of the car, but mostly am talking about the pickup part and the lower gears. Btw, I tried the launch in 1st gear, didn't make much of a difference.

    A friend suggested to get the plug distributor cap and rotor changed. I have never changed that in 5 years. Could this be the solution?

    Fill it with Hi-Octane, may be that helps.

    Nah, hi-octane shouldn't make that much of a difference. I used to mix hi-octane but a civic doesn't really need hi-octane that often. It just has more cleaning properties.

    Then may be some major mechanical problem bro like worn out clutch plates or something. Considering you have done everything else.
