Here is India’s first used 2019 Honda Civic sedan. This car features Maharashtra (MH) plates, and has run just 1,245 Kms. It’s the ZX CVT Petrol variant – in other words the petrol top-end trim. It’s priced at Rs. 22 lakhs, which is over Rs. 3 lakhs cheaper than the brand new car (Priced at Rs. 25.13 lakhs on-road Mumbai). The car was purchased in April 2019, and there’s valid insurance upto April 2022. Now, that’s another solid saving there. It also gets a 5 year extended warranty that is also transferable to the new owner. An electric sunroof comes standard, along with all the premium features that the top-end ZX trim gets. This car is a great buy for those looking at a nearly-new Civic with an effective discount of over Rs. 3 lakhs. Besides, this car is meant for those who don’t want to skip the queue and dump the waiting period that a new car comes saddled with. Contact STIClassifieds for more details.
The Honda Civic was launched earlier this year, and the car is selling like hot cakes. The Civic is the best selling car in the D-Segment sedan segment, ahead of the likes of the Toyota Corolla, Hyundai Elantra and the Skoda Octavia. Demand is high and the waiting period runs to many months. The Civic is sold with petrol and diesel engines but almost 9 out of 10 buyers have been opting for the silky smoothness of the petrol over the higher fuel efficiency of the diesel.
It also helps that the petrol engine gets a CVT automatic gearbox as standard across all variants while the diesel engined variants get a 6 speed manual gearbox. The petrol engine of the Civic is a 1.8 liter-4 cylinder i-VTEC unit, of which millions have been sold globally. This bullet proof reliable petrol engine makes 138 Bhp of peak power and 174 Nm of peak torque, and is known for its smoothness. It’s paired to a CVT automatic gearbox in the latest Civic.
Coming to the diesel engine, it’s a turbocharged 1.6 liter all-aluminium, 4 cylinder unit that Honda calls EarthDreams. This engine is known best for its fuel efficiency, and the Civic Diesel manages a stunning 26 Kmpl. The diesel engine puts out 118 Bhp of peak power and 300 Nm of peak torque, and is paired to a 6 speed manual gearbox as standard.
The diesel engine is manufactured in India, at Honda’s Tapukara factory in Rajasthan, and is also offered on the CR-V SUV. While the Japanese automaker offers a 9 speed torque converter automatic gearbox with the CR-V diesel sold in India, this transmission option is yet to made available to the Civic for reasons best known to Honda. The diesel engine’s top-end ZX variant is pricier than the petrol, and sells for a whopping Rs. 26.87 lakhs on-road Mumbai.
