A very interesting move to be seen since launch of Altis. City and Civic are surely for two separate markets and so have no direct competition. Then what has Honda Atlas in mind?
My view is that City is a sporty sedan and has now evolved with more sporty objects whereas civic has evolved more into a family safe car. I backed this with reference to changes made from 95 to 06. all sporty items have taken off gradually turning it into more safe family car.
And if there is Exi in 2006 with new shape and old price then I will prefer it over city
