  • The Honda Civic has been a fan favourite when it comes to sporty affordable sedans. And now in its 10th generation, it looks even more delicious. Out of the competition, the Civic is the only sedan to bear a coupe-like roofline and hence, arguably, looks the best.

  • From the front the Honda identity remains intact, with a fat chrome bar connecting the headlamps. The airdam is as wide as the width from headlamp-to-headlamp and strikes a good symmetry.

  • It's the three-quarter views which suit the CIvic the most. The sleek front and the sloping roofline makes it handsome. 

  • From the side, it's again the coupe-like stance which stands out he most. Here, you can see how long the Civic really is (4656mm).

  • But the rear-three quarter remains our favourite view of the 2019 CIvic. The sharp lines on the boot with the aggressive angular taillamps make it look sporty. 

  • Right from the back, the C-shaped “light-pipe” LED tail lights neatly outline the bootgate and helps the Civic maintain its sporty look.

  • While the Civic is a handsome lad, we won't mind spending the entire day looking at it from this angle. 

  • The single chrome bar is now a family look for Honda and can also be seen on its entire lineup. 

  • The headlamps here are all-LED units arranged beautifully in an in-line configuration.

  • The wheels are 215/50 rubber wrapped on 17-inch dual-tone alloys. 

  • And of course, no luxury car would be complete without a sunroof. 

  • A standard antenna just won't do justice to such a design, and hence you get a shark-fin antenna. 

  • Like a proper coupe, the roofline merges directly onto the tailgate of the Civic. The taillamps too play an integral part in this design by wrapping the tail together. 

  • Called the ‘light-pipe’, the C-shaped LED lights have become an iconic part of the 10th generation Civic in all body types. 

  • The Honda Civic also gets a full size boot. With a storage capacity of 430-litres, packing in the weekend luggage won't be a bother. 

  • The Civic always had a premium-looking interior setup. In the 10th generation, it is no different. 

  • The steering wheel is a leather-wrapped unit with paddle shifters in the petrol-CVT combination. The steering further gets controls for audio, calls and cruise. 

  • A major highlight of the car is the 7-inch all-digital instrument cluster which along with the usual info also displays the car information, audio source, navigation and call data. 

  • The centre infotainment display is a 7-inch touchscreen unit which supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Below it are the controls for the automatic climate control. 

  • Manual transmission is available with the diesel engine only. 

  • The CVT automatic transmission is available only with the petrol engine.

  • The USB, 12V and HDMI ports are neatly tucked away below the centre console. 

  • The driver seats gets an 8-way electric adjust.

  • The rear seat of the Civic is designed for two. The centre part of the bench gets a small hump which offers better contouring for the passengers. 

  • The rear passengers get rear AC vents but miss out on a 12V or even a USB charging socket. 

  • The sunroof, again. Simply because you can never have enough of it. Sigh. 

  • The Honda Civic will be available with 2 engine options - a 141PS/174Nm 1.8-litre i-VTEC petrol engine mated to a 7-step CVT; and a 120PS /300Nm 1.6-litre unit mated to a 6-speed manual transmission. The claimed efficiency of the diesel is an astonishing 26.8kmpl!

  • The Honda Civic will continue to rival the likes of the Skoda Octavia, Hyundai Elantra and the Toyota Corolla. 

  • You can check out the detailed first drive review right here if you want to know how the cars drives. Bookings are open for a token amount of Rs 31,000 and the car will be launched next month. Prices are expected to be between Rs 18 lakh - Rs 22 lakh. 

  • It's clear that the Civic has come a long way from the last eighth-generation model that we had. What will be interesting to see is whether it can again gain the same kind of popularity in the market like it did back in 2008.
