Japanese car manufacturer Honda launched the tenth generation Civic sedan in India earlier this year. It is a premium sedan that competes with the likes of Skoda Octavia, Toyota Corolla Altis and Hyundai Elantra in the segment. It is one of the most popular sedans in the D-segment and is doing pretty good in terms of numbers as well. Civic is also one the sedans that people love modifying. Not just the exteriors, but interiors as well. here we have a Civic which gets Tesla type aftermarket screen installed.

The video has been uploaded by Musafir Aka Joshi on his youtube channel. The video starts by showing the Civic from the outside and then it shows the stock infotainment system Civic came with. It had a small screen with all the control for the infotainment below it and under it is the control switches for the air condition. Then they show the Tesla unit that they’ll be installing in the civic. It has 2 components, one is the screen itself and the other is the machine. The machine is placed under the dash and is connected with the wires for the infotainment system which in turn is connected to the screen itself.

The screen itself is neatly tucked on the centre console.Fit and the finish of the screen from Hypersonic is also pretty good. There are no gaps left after in the panel after installing it. The screen gets audio and video player installed in it and it also shows the speedometer and AC controls on it. The audio settings can be controlled from the steering wheel as well using the switches. However it does not support Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. According to the video, there are multiple versions of the screen available on sale for Honda Civic and the prices start at Rs 35,000 and go up till Rs 50,000.
