This review is intended for sharing my point of view regarding the Civic and Axio. An individual in one of the reviews below has asked for opinions, so here's mine.
The civic no doubt looks better, has a little more spacious interior and a more powerful engine giving it the edge in performance. The build quality however, is certainly not going to match the standards of the japanese.
While the Civic is made locally and purchasing it will give a boost to the economy of our dear country, sadly the quality control agency seems to be asleep as most of the parts and bits are very very cheap for a saloon costing nearly 20 lacs.
The Axio is going to be much better in the terms of build quality and ride refinement. This is because it is brought re-conditioned and is japanese assembled. The latest model with the new head-lamps and tail-lights is very good looking.
This great website will help with the latest prices of each model and i guess both these cars are mostly in the same range. The axio may be less expensive in some cases, depending upon the model year and condition.
