So NEW CIVIC 2012 According to Me ,
Went to the showroom today to check the car , and I Am really Impressed ! almost stayed there with the car for atleast 45minutes , checked every thing and it is a very very nice car .
First : The Exterior : Guys the overall shape is quite impressive n nice , the pics arent doing any justice here , the car is impressive , n worth seeing from any/ all the angles , the front is tooooo nice , the side of the car is good too , and the rear lights n back , they are just lookin bad here in these pics , i dnt know how the car looks on road , but parked there in the showroom , it was looking good not bad at all ...
Interior : one of the best interiors ever i have seen .... very very impressive , the new multi plex meter , new I MID disp , Navigation with net support , the dashboard , seats , front and rear center arm rests , the doors , the door panels , sunroof , the steering wheel , RPM meter the lights , the feel , everything is just toooooo great ... i loved it !
Yes no doubt , the dashboard ( both black n beige ) parts , are too hard , just like City's dash , very very hard , no soft / leathery feeling , but it doesnt look bad atleast , looks pretty nice , only after touching it u feel tht the material is not good rest its damn impressive in looks ..But the black part on door panels have a soft / leathery feeling wch is nice ..
Road Clearance is toooooooooo Goood , lolx actually I felt , it is much higher then corolla even , especially from back it was toooo high ...which I dont Know will give the car a bad road grip as compared to previous one ... yes good road clearance is good for our bad roads But I really dont like Itni ooonchi Civic
There are no individual side/roof lights for the passengers at back ( like the 8th Gen ) which was really a cool feature in the previous one ..
Alloy Rims are just OK , not good , not tht bad ...
overall i ll give it :
Exterior : 8/10 , THe car really looks good
Interior : 10/10
Features : 10/10
Now everyone here is comparing this New CIVIC with , 8th GEN , ALTIS and imported premios/Allion 08 onwards
Comparing with 8th GEn :
Diff ppl , diff opinions , But in my view both are actually very nice .. New one is not bad at all .. its quite good ... A Brandnew Reborn was also parked there , i also checked tht car , compared both brandnew cars , the thing is Reborn is sporty , quite attractive , very nice for Bodykits / bigger rims and aggressive looks ,, This New one is not sporty ( atleast acc to me ) but this one is sober / decent n more on the executive elegant class .. Interior , The IMID display in the new one makes the diff , rest both are equally good , 8th gens interior still loooks too good ..Reborn is stylish n sporty attracts many young ppl , this one is more decnt/sober n elegant ... My dad really liked the shape as it is not sporty now ... so shape wise Many uncles are going to buy it thts for sure
This new oNE has so many new good features as compared to 8th Gen so its a winner here !
Now ALTIS !
I Currently have 2011 Top of the Line Altis 1.8L , but New Civic is way ahead ...Interior , Features , the feel inside the car everything is just too great as compared to ALTIS ! Exterior wise it depends on personal preference , I like Altis’s shape .. The only Reason i went for ALTIS In 2011 was Cruise Control n Switchtronic transmission , But now we have so many good features in this NEW CIVIC and yes Its a CIVIC So why to go 4 OLD ALTIS .. from the spy shots / google pics Yes I know New COROLLA will beat this New CIVIC but only in looks n may be features too , but never everrrr in interior , the drive and the feeling inside the most goreous cabin everrr
Now Imported ones , Premios / ALLIONS etc
CIVIC is Brandnew with warranty , with better features like sunroof , Different n new I MID display , and much attractive n better Interior ...
This new CIVIC in short is a very nice car , the best locally assembled car , and has a very reasonable price tag considering the specs , if u have budget of 20 plus simply go for it any variant ! I was planning to get VTI prosmatec booked , But My ALTIS is giving me a loss of around 3lacs , and its just like a brandnew one with only 15k kms on the odo , so i’d wait for another 2 years n will decide later which one to buy either This 9[SUP]th[/SUP] GEN CIVIC or new upcoming model of Corolla ....
