The Civic was one of the first D-segment cars in India. The good looking futuristic car from Honda turned many heads on the Indian roads. The car was discontinued due to the degrading sale. The new Civic will make a grand comeback by next year in India and it looks even better in its new form.
The 2016 Civic will be powered by a 1.8-litre i-VTEC engine that produces massive 173 Bhp of maximum power and 220 Nm of maximum torque. Even though Honda has remained tight-lipped about the launch of the Civic in India but by next year, the new Civic should be on Indian soil.
The soft-roader from Nissan was discontinued in 2014. The car will make a comeback soon with a hybrid powertrain. The new Nissan X-Trail has taken a new shape and looks nothing like the previous car that was present in the country.

The premium sedan from Volkswagen competes with the likes of Audi A4 and vanished from India due to low sale but this time around, the car is coming with more weapons. The new Passat GTE that will come to India is a hybrid and looks very luxurious.
