Numerous reports have suggested that Honda might consider bringing back the Civic brand to the Indian marketplace. Now, a hatchback version of the Honda Civic has been spotted near Rajasthan adding more fuel to the rumour mill.
This 2015 Honda Civic hatchback model was spotted near Honda’s manufacturing facility in Tapukara, Rajasthan. This particular model was a left-hand driver version and has been imported to India for R&D purpose.
With this, we can surely expect a debut of the new Civic at the 2016 India Auto Expo, however, in a regular sedan version and not a hatchback.
The petrol version of this Civic gets a 1.4L, 99 BHP motor and a 1.8L, 148 BHP motor. The most sensible option for India though would be the 1.6L diesel motor producing 118 BHP. However, we cannot comment much on the tech-specs as of now.
Whatever it is, this news piece will surely excite the Civic fanboys here in India.
