    Default Altis 1.6. How will Honda respond?

    DEar friends!
    You all know that the present shaped GLI has been a great success while Altis 1.8 has been a complete failure against Civic Vti 1.8. Keeping in view the Gli success and Altis failure, The Toyota indus has initiated a good strategy to modigy Gli from 1.3 to 1.6 and from Altis 1.8 to 1.6. So in my opinion, Altis 1.6 will be a success now as most people will buy Altis 1.6 instead of Gli 1.6 because of a big difference in features with a small difference in price. So my Question is how HONDA will respond to it?? Will continue 1.8 L with more features or will launch 1.6 L version again to outclass Altis 1.6 L?? Please no fights but just logical comments
    thanks in advance

    in other words khurram aziz said that having an extra airbag and 200cc more is a better deal by adding 1 lac more and thus he is loving the deal...

    Keep your eyes and brain active, and please don't start an argument in this thread. The poster wanted to know that what Honda will respond to Altis 1.6?

    In my opinion Honda Atlas will not Degrade civic engines from 1.8l to 1.6l because they have already upgraded their engine by moving from 1.5L & 1.6L (7th Gen and previous gens) to 1.8L (8th Gen) and so will continue to produce 1.8L Engine in 9th gen Civic and that's a very positive step.

    Honda 1.8 was already a best seller and now after Altis 1.8 discontinuation; the competition is over and Honda is the only player left is this category so I think there is no need of downgrading Honda Civic from 1.8 to 1.6 or making any special modifications to attract new customers.

    First read these statistics.

    http://www.pama.org.pk/images/storie...-sale-2011.pdf

    And tell me where is the competition? Both Atlas and IMC and enjoying the monopoly. They have advance orders on full payments for three months. There is no backlog (I mean none of them is facing any problem selling their stock, rather there is no stock), so where is the competition and why IMC would like to kill the paltry sales of Atlas? or does Atlas has the capacity to outnumber IMC in production?
    Be polite on the road. Always give way to others, particularly ambulances and pedestrians.

    Exactly.Both have more sales than their productions.Currently Altis delivery time is Dec2011 which means they have cars selling enough.

    How about a beige interior (with better plastic ) City with 1.5L iVTEC under the hood...and to spice it up; a paddle shift gearbox in Manual; and Steermatic like options (CVT or Tiptronic etc) in Auto

    As a customer; I will like competition and options....but as @autophile has mentioned; this these two vendors have monopolized...

    That 1.5 City will be great offering if its gets offered at reasonable price it can be competitor to GLI AT 1.6 or ALtis 1.6 MT.But I dont think honda will offer this again because steermatic was a big time flop car in Pakistan.And they discontinued it after certain time when they realized that its not giving them enough sales and response

    Steermatic was not flopped. Its model was discontinued all over the world. so honda pakistan also decided to close down its production and concentrate on new gen model.

    Here in pakistan due to ill-literacy people didnt know how operate with paddle shifters and refrained from buying it.

    Its a very good car for one who knows how to operate it. id say its a gem.

    Steermatic was the best thing to happen to Honda City but our Awam wants XLI -.-

    as per Topic Civic's market is not going anywhere in Pakistan
    its gonna enjoy 1.8 Exclusivity

    Altis being 1.6 is a souped up GLi while Civic is a completely different Car

    1.5 City with good features can provide the needed competition but i dont think itll happen

    Not to mention, civic has immobiliser which Altis simply lacking... A supreme feature to discourage car theft cases...
