    Default Civic 2006 ..............a flop??

    Saw pics of civic 2006 model on the net, this new model does not look like a head turner on The roads to me I mean does not have a very sporty/special look like previous models of civic. And no new technology as far as the engine is concerned I mean The 2006 civic model is offering what Altis 1.8 is offering now i.e DOHC , 1.8 , etc
    what do u guys think?

    @ok, yes its dumb from exterior an a spaceship from interior!

    and engine wise it edges out the altis! altis is DOHC while this will have a SOHC + i-VTEC engine but will give more hp and torque!

    Its better that we wait until new civic comes on road and prove that it can give tough time to altis.
    Before its launch, it'd be totally unwise to say that its a flop.

    @ok and techwiz! the interior of this civic was designed while keeping in mind maximum road visibility and the instrument s have been positioned according to our eye movement, and have you ever actually seen a spaceship?? i ahave at NASA museum in houston, TX USA, it's totally different! secondly, the exterior is pretty well constructed, this shape has mminimum of air drag and is totally NVH tested. it will drive out altis from competition. corolla altis looks like a fat and ugly *****, with a flat unappealing structure. Civic always edges out Corollas in driving dynamics and technology.

    offcourse one can vomit by looking its front. but interio is unbelievably astonishing.
    everyone has his own taste of beauty. comparisons should be confined to the technical stuff and engine performance rather than shape and styling.

    yeah i agree with wik_a the front is really bad and looks very similar to the present day honda city ....

    Well sherdil82 do you own HONDA Corp. or some thing .... any way all the cars these days are designed for maximum road visibility ... and as for technology Honda did pioneer in the VTI type technology but now other companies like Toyota have beaten them on it as they have introduced the VVT-I and DOHC , 1.8 engines which Honda will try to beat in their 2006 model ….. as for altis shape I agree it not as sporty as the present day civic but you see … altis is a decent , mature type family car . While Honda is a teenage, youngster type sporty car and don’t understand why we in Pakistan are making it as a family car ?????

    Btw guys don’t you think the 2006 civic looks like hybrid of sporty city and a family car J hence the over all shape is in no mans land

    It might not be for everyones taste but if u want a sporty look then bloody well go buy a sports car.. This is a sedan and it does the job pretty well.. coupled with a 1.8 DOHC (Hopefully!) this will kick the Altis' ugly fat ***..

    we'll @OK and zen and a few others around and about. let me tell you that civic was never a sports car alright. it's a mid-sized family sedan. get it!!!! honda has a sports car named s2000 and also nsx(Acura, a subsidary of Honda). get real folks!!!!

    if it ever were a sports car it would've had dual exhuast, and would have been a two door. infact Honda has a sportier Civic Si and a Civic Sports Coupe. these two can be termed semi-sports vehicles, but not entirely.

    Honda had ECT world over 5years back. actually it was electronically controlled 4-speed auto with Grade Logic Control, known as Prosmatec!

    Everyone complained about Honda City , but look now, honda city is selling like hot cakes. And Honda offers alot given the price range of it's vehicles everywhere, even in Pakistan to some extent. In Pakistan Honda Atlas had already introduced stuff like ABS, EBD,Brake Assist, and Vtec engines since 2001, so it's not a big deal that toyota has introduced a few now!

    All-new 1.8-liter i-VTEC 4-cylinder engine with advanced valve control technology
    140 horsepower @ 6300 rpm and 128 lb-ft. torque @ 4300 rpm

    30/40 mpg city/highway (automatic transmission)
    ULEV-2 emissions
    5-speed automatic transmission available (standard 5-speed manual)
    Drive-by-Wire Throttle Control system

    This time around we will get a complete version , as a matter of fact we only don't get air bags and cruise control, the rest is already in the bag, so why bragg about neddlessly?

    Toyota Corolla doesn't have good road visibility at all, ask anyone, where as Civic offers a more panoramic view with a wide angle cycle.

    As a matter of fact The Atlas Honda Paksitan is way better in doing business then Indus Motors Pakistan.
    See the vehicles of Honda and compare then with that of Toyota. Honda vehicles in Pakistan are updated as soon as they are done in rest of the world. You also get some good accessories like ABS and EBD.
    Toyota vehicles are not that much updated. ABS and EBD now is due to under the pressure of Govt otherwise you would have not found out these two in all new altis.
    As far as the technical comparison is concerned then both, in Pakistan, are same. Some features are missing in corolla and some are in civic. Its better that we don't compare honda and toyota that are present in abroad. Come to Pakistan my dear. See what quality of vehicles is present here.
