HONDA CIVIC FACELIFT REVEALED | INDIA BOUNDPosted On: August 14, 2018 By : AutoLife Team
Honda India had announced earlier this year, that they will be launching three new cars in India somewhere around 2019. However, the big news is that the Civic facelift has just been revealed, and well it is amazing in every aspect as compared to it the present Honda Civic.
On the outside, the front ‘wing’ is finished in piano black instead of the chrome bar, a reworked, more angular front bumper with chrome accents for the fog lamp housings and a chrome strip for the rear bumper. Rounding off the list of cosmetic updates are new designs for the alloy wheels. There’s also now a ‘Sport’ trim on offer internationally, with 18-inch wheels, a splitter-style rear bumper, rear spoiler and added black detailing for the fascia. Although the changes to the new Civic’s exterior are subtle, we are sure it will take the market by storm.
Inside, the Civic facelift gets Honda’s updated seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Also, on the standard Civic facelift is Honda’s Sensing suite of safety features, which includes a collision warning and mitigation system with automatic braking, lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control and more.
Under the hood, Honda is expected to introduce the Civic facelift with a 1.8-litre, 140hp petrol engine, along with the 1.6-litre Earth Dreams diesel engine, making 120hp and 300Nm – the same engine that’ll also be powering the CR-V. Additionally, Honda could also pair the diesel with a nine-speed automatic, just like the CR-V.
