Dear question is even if you pay 35 lac for turbo variant, is it worth it? You have lot of options in that price range. So why to pay almost 8 to 10 lac extra for turbo.
In my opinion Honda strategy will be simple to go with R18 and cvt. Keep the price close to or little above grande. There will be lot of lot of people who don't care which engine and options Honda will introduce here and go for civic for brand name and new shape. New civic with r18 and cvt is enough to kill grande sales and get Honda lost market. So why they launch new 1.5T for 1% of buyers.
I can bet if they introduce same old engine with same old transmission still people will buy it.
9th gen is a nice car but now it's time is up and new shape is here. So there are many people who will just switch to new for just sake of new shape.
That's our market. That's our people.
