SCOOP: Honda Begins Testing The New Civic in India

A few months back we had talked about Honda axing the current Civic from India and the possibility that it might not even bring the next generation to our markets. 

However, a new development is emerging from Honda’s stables and reports something which is sure to bring in some cheer to all Civic loving souls. According to their report, Honda has started testing the Next generation Civic in India which was launched in Thailand in May 2012 and is present in quite a few international markets.

Though there are no spy pics to confirm the news but we have every reason to believe this snippet. There was a widespread speculation that Honda will not introduce the new CR-V in India but Oncars were the first one to reveal that Honda had started testing the next-gen CR-V in India which was later on caught on the roads of North India.

Now, Honda plans to launch the new CR-V in India next month and it seems that the new Civic will follow. What’s good about this news is that the US version of the Civic has got a 2.2-Liter i-DTEC oil burner and the European replica has got the 1.5-Liter i-DTEC.

Initially Honda might only make do with the 1.8L petrol mill but sometime sooner we are all bound to see a diesel engine, most probably the 1.6L EarthDreams or the India-specific 1.5L version, on our Indian Civic. Both the manual and the automatic version of Civic are expected to be on sale.

The Brio Amaze compact sedan, coming by the mid of this year, is going to be the first diesel engine powered car by Honda in India. Just after that, we expect a diesel model splash by Honda spanning across to almost all their models including the small Brio hatch (which is under tests) and Honda City sedan.
