The all-new tenth generation Honda Civic was launched in India after skipping a whole generation. However, the car has become a popular choice in the D-Segment and last month, the manufacturer dispatched as many 1,687 units of the premium sedan in the market. Since it is a global car, there are many modified examples of the sedan around the world and many of such styling kits can be imported to India too. Here is the first modified Honda Civic spotted in India.
The video by AutoMarc shows the first modification job done on the all-new Honda Civic. The video shows new tail lamps that are connected to each other with a bridge. The new all-LED tail lamps are identical in shape to the stock lamps except for the middle part that connects them. The video shows a dancing light pattern on the tail lamps that start in the middle and animatedly fill up the tail lamps. There are many other patterns that can be seen in the video.
The exact cost of the tail lamps are not known but you can contact the seller directly through their official Facebook page. With the increasing popularity of the Civic in the market, we expect to see many such modifications and various other modifications on the roads. Honda Civic can be modified in various extreme ways and there are many fine examples of modified Civic sedans available in the foreign countries but with the new Indian rule that bans the modification of the vehicles completely, we may miss out on many extremely modified Honda Civic sedans roaming around in India.
The tenth generation Honda Civic takes on the likes of Toyota Corolla, Hyundai Elantra and Skoda Octavia in the Indian market. It gets powered by both petrol and diesel engine options. Initially, when Honda announced the price of the all-new Civic, the market criticised the high price, which makes it the most expensive vehicle in the segment. The base version of Honda Civic is priced at Rs 17,69 lakh, ex-showroom, which is higher all of the competition.
The Honda Civic’s petrol variants are powered by the 1.8-litre naturally aspirated engine that generates a maximum power of 139 Bhp and 174 Nm. All the petrol variants only get an automatic CVT gearbox that can be controlled through a paddle shifter. The diesel variants of the Civic get powered by 1.6-litre i-DTEC engine that generates a maximum of 118 Bhp and peak torque of 300 Nm. It gets only a 6-speed manual transmission.
Such modifications can void the manufacturer’s warranty so be careful about it. However, there are a few manufacturers who do not void the warranty if there is no splicing of wires are involved. It is better to get information about the warranty from the manufacturer and the modification garage before you decide to modify the vehicle.
