I don't get why people have an issue with anyone criticising the new civic! I for one paid 2.7 million for a car! No matter which ever way you look at it - this is a lot of money. Yes the car is beautiful exterior wise - so what? Should we light a fire around it and do jinga lolo!? The interior quality is pathetic, the steering buttons ufff! I just can't get over how pathetic they are. Further I paid for it and have every right to criticise it whichever way I want! I am also driving a company maintained altis so I can also make a direct comparison - no matter what one says, the interior of the altis is much better than the civic X as far as quality is concerned.
As a customer of a car which has been 'the North American car of the year' you expect a little attention to detail - and at this price point in Pakistan it is no longer a budget compact sedan.
In 2-7-3.0 mil one can get a vezel, a c class (2007-2009), a very very good Prius and god knows what else... So people calling this car a 'ghaneemat' please think carefully!
Just because a car has nice flashy lights and a good stance doesn't mean that everything else should be forgotten! The thinking 'oh baway gari dekh - road pay Kia X phela rahi hai' has to go away!
My brother's Suzuki swift has better build quality and I genuinely miss my 9th gen's steering! Also these dealers should be taken to court - turbo has a waiting time of 4 months - but sir jee ye Hamari apni 2 gariyan khari hain turbos ye le lain 2 lakh on pay! I wish the bald honda QC guy also took notice of the dealerships charging on themselves!
I have been a user of civic's since the 7th gen and while the 9th gen disappointed me it was still tolerable - but with the civic X Atlas has outdone themselves!
As I said in 5 years time - if Audi is still as smart as it is now with its pricing I will definitely save up for a a4 or a5! It's bad enough that you pay 27 Lakhs for a car and then like a mistri have to check each and every corner of the car to look for gaps and defects! Utter disgrace!
