    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?

    www.honda.com.au (and checkout the Honda Odyssey) notice any resemblance?

    and did anyone notice from the interior , its an integrated cd player.. what does that mean? not having the ability to go and change your "stock" head unit to a better brand name and who knows if it has mp3 playability or not (I don't know about you guys but audio cds, aint fun no more)


    Civic 2006 ..............a flop?? - Rolla

    How simple is it ^^ oh you don't like the stock player, thats alrite go and change it.. in Honda's case.. well.

    some of the guy here have a problem that they are comparing two family cars as sport cars.
    pata hai hum log ye kiun karte hain kiunke yahan option he civic ya corolla ka hai or hum usi ko sports car kehtey hain
    haan albata dono ko modify karne ke baad sports car banaya ja sakta hai
    kisi bhi gari ka cahe kitna bhi ganda shape kiun na ho modify karne ke bad woh bahut hi atractive ho jati hai

    i have read all the up and down correspondence and comparison of altis vs current civic vti. i would like to add my comments as below;
    i have extensivley driven both the cars both within the city and inter city to as far as up north of pakistan. also i frequently travel and have rented both corollas and civics.
    my views are as below:

    there is no doubt that civic has better handling and maneuvering characteristics and it feels more sure-footed in tight corners and on highways. also the interior of civic is eye-catching and more modern.

    i have been a civic fan, however i hate to say that in terms of build-quality and durability, the recent civic (from 2002-2005) does not come close to corolla. cant say about upcoming 2006 model, but in the current version (200-2005), civic has significantly dropped its build quality.
    the first and fore-most is the evident and annoying engine sound during hard acceleration which easily transmits into the cabin through the thin metal. previous civic designs/engines were far more quiet.this gives a very unsophisticated feel to the car. honda must consider reviving its build quality or else.......

    also, the current civic vti cant match the power and torque of corolla altis and its obvious that an altis can outperform a vti.

    civic does seem to have a more sophisticated and supple ride, however again its quiet common to develop body/panel and suspension noises/rattles in civics just over a year or two old. where as corolla takes much more abuse and has a much more durable suspension and better build quality.its better-suited for pakistani roads and driving conditions. This is the reason that civics generally dont survive with car rental companies and most of them offer corollas.

    to sum up things. honda and toyota are targetting different clientale. civics are more modern and sophisticated than corolla but are definitely delicate and have not kept up their quality. in terms of build-quality and durability corolla is better and longer lasting and due to these reasons has a higher resale value compared to civic.

    well mazhar i dont know what quality are you talking about corolla? i bought my XLi in Aug last yr. after about 1 month water came in the car from the rubber holes under the car. when i went to the toyota motors thay said that rubbers were of wrong size and were put incorrectly...
    after that strange noices started to come from the back side fo the car... a tyre burst whiel driving on the road at a very normal speed.. after that there started loud rattling sounds from the fron leeft wheel of the car.. and the worst of all my car's ac's gas leaked out in four months when i went to toyta motors they couldnt find the problem and simply refilled the cas and after abut 5 months the gas leaked out again and the now iam driving the car without ac as the problem is still unsolved....

    my uncle bouth a 2.od about 4 months ago. one day while going back from lhr to sgd there rear wind screen cracked. when they checked it out from the mechanac he said that the seal of the screen was too tight and the screen cracked due to high pressure..

    well from this u can well iamgine the quality of corolla. the toyota showrooms are always full of new cars with a lot of probs. i think quality of corolla now is worst than ever.

    ITS A BEAUTY
    this ca is a super model.
    now this is the best not like cororllas
    wich dont change their models for decades.honda guys are really good even in a market like pakistan they change their model rugularly as they do internatinaly.thats the good thing of Atlas honda.by the way i have used both corolla and civic but civic is more comfortable,good shape,economocal fuel consumption,durable.
    Past cant be brought back ..but future can be made even better than the Past..if one wants to.. ....

    My Points:


    @Evoloution:
    FIRST OF ALL IT WILL HAVE SOHC I-VTEC ENGINE (R18) SO FORGET DOHC! IN THAT CASE ALTIS RULZ!

    @bugbuzz:
    THE CURRENT SHAPE OF THE CIVIC HAS FLOPPED ALL OVER THE WORLD! PREVIOUS LEGENDARY CIVICS 95-00 WERE GIVEN AWARDS THE WORLD OVER.
    BUT THE BELT OF CURRENT CIVIC IS EMPTY SO IN THAT CASE ITS FLOP! I DONT CARE IF ILLITERATE PEOPLE IN PAKISTAN LIKE IT...

    @sherdil82:
    LET ME MAKE SOME POINTS CLEAR HERE!

    ECT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH PROSMATEC! KNOW THIS, TOYOTA IS THE ONLY MANUFACTURER IN JAPAN WHICH MAKES THE BEST AUTO TRANSMISSION WHICH ARE ON A PAR WITH
    THE GERMANS! TOYOTA NOW EVEN HAS SUPER ECT-I!

    MOREOVER YOU SAID SINCE 2001 HONDA INTRODUCED "BRAKE ASSIST" TELL ME WHICH PAKI HONDA HAS THIS FEATURE? ALTIS IS THE FIRST CAR IN PAKISTAN TO
    FEATURE BRAKE ASSIST!

    LET ME CATCH YOU HERE! HONDA "NEVER" GAVE A DOHC ENGINE IN PAKISTAN!!! WHILE TOYOTA GAVE IT WITH THE ADVENT OF 1.6 GLI IN MID 90S




    NOW MY POINTS:


    1. INTERIOR AND CITY-LIKE SHAPE IS A LETDOWN AT LEAST FOR ME.
    2. THE INTERIOR IS LIKE THE DECK OF THE SPACESHIP USED IN STARTREK!
    3. THERE IS NOT DOHC ENGINE AND ECT & OVERDRIVE FEATURE!
    4. THE PRICE WILL BE AROUND 14 LACS FOR THE TOP MODEL (HEARD THROUGHT A HONDA OFFICIAL) AND 14 LACS IS WAY TO HIGHER THAN AN ALTIS!
    5. STILL DOESNT HAVE THE TRUE "DOUBLE WISHBONE SETUP" ON ALL FOUR WHEELS LIKE THE CIVICS OF 96-00.


    6. THE REAR IS A COPY OF 2006 ALL NEW AUDI A4! IM POSTING A PIC, COMPARE IT!
