Drove my uncles new oriel. Very smooth and comfy drive. Just gonna compare one main aspect of it as this bothered me the most, when I recently drove a relatvies new grande. It had significant delay when moving from a stand still, that is from the time I pressed the accelerator and the time the car started to move. The civic response however was great, no significant delay at all. Also its ride is more stable, doesnt feel like im on a boat at higher speeds.
For the first time saw the interior without the leather honda give, I must say it was crap. Seats and the door panel part felt really cheap.
@arkhitekt, thanks for sharing what you did with your interior. My uncle talked to shehzad and will get it done from him.
Took some pics of areas of discussion and concern, will share on the other thread.
