I went to Arya today, the sales guy says the civic will be 20 Lac, has a 1.3 petrol and electric motor, its returns an average of 25-30 km/l, I don't think that is too impressive...
the Jazz is on display, and he claims its not a real car, its a model !priced at 7-8 lacs.... i don't think the showroom ppl know anything about the cars on display...

Nice Pics. looks like jazz is used as crowd puller to show case the new accord. Which is watered down version of international one.

Not yet I guess. I am not even sure if the dealers are even aware of the prices

The civic sport will be the regular civic with side skirts, front air dam, spoiler and interior emellishments like drilled aluminium pedals for approximately 50k more price.

Why does the Civic sport have such dark tinted windows? They surely can't launch it with that.

The Accord front grill is gonna take time to get used to. Not liking it as of now.

The side pic the Jazz is just stunning. Nice design. Reminds me of the "EP" Civic Type R.

Spoke to Arya today. Had convinced dad for a test drive and wanted to make sure the car was there. "No sir car was on display only from 22-25th, we are expecting in phirsht week of maiiy" and when I asked about pricing, they were like 21 for the manual, expected. And they're taking bookings without knowing the price! Does this always happen? Am I that new to the world of car buying?

If the pictures of the accord posted are of the final production one then I notice that the new accord does not have any parking sensors nor does it have any steering mounted controls. The instrument panel is the basic one i.e. no optitron meters like the old gen.

Hopefully the final features are more than this model on display.

There thay have mentioned that the engine is 2.0 L iVTEC producing 157 BHP. That's not our regular Civic.
