So now I understand why the S variant gave way for the E.

The sports model which is at 12L has manual gears, it's same as the S offered earlier, that is V minus fogs, leather and indicators on rear mirror. And it also has a new blue cabin light and white alloys. It has the same 1.8 engine which is in other models.

The body kit, which is extra, can be used in all models, it has front, side and back skirts and rear spoiler at 55K.

Why are they calling it 'Sports' whereas earlier it was only S.

PS. We give better feedback in Jaipur, therefore not getting to delhi first.

I have taken the delivery of civic 1.8 V day before yesterday , same day I got a call from another dealer to book sports, but he also mention that every new model that comes in will take another month to get registerd with authority and all, and he confirmed that there is no change in engine, sporty costume looks can be purchased for any other civic
thats why i decided to go for 1.8V because if everything is same then why to wait just for white alloys!

Generally, European cars. The Octavia, Laura, Benz' & BMW's feel great at 150.
