People are more focused on economy, rather than drive pleasure. lots of them are the ones who likes shaskay and so much of chrome and unnecessary curves.We all know civic is fun to drive, hard on mileage and maintenance.civic vs xli/gli? what nonsense... it just like comparing mehran sales with A4 ! obviously mehran will outclass A4 Audi in numbers in Pakistan ... what are the figures of corolla altis grande vs civic.
New civic is good in consumption, isn't it?
IMO people go for the one with resale, durability and availability of parts all around the country.
A lot of people buy civic for peace of mind, knowing that it doesn't get stolen.
