Honda salesguy just visited with new City's details and after much talk and showing the online photos of new Civic he was telling that it is coming in Jan 09 that is in 3 months.

Not much difference from outside, but many interior changes. I asked that then again the price will increase by 1 or 1.5 Lakhs, he said not that much.

Does the proposed new Civic have the much needed lumbar support for at least the driver's seat ??

From the picture this looks better then the current one, specially the rear needs to be worked out those jarring red tail lamps should be modified. While interior is anyway superb.

Vid, the news is about a new auto gearbox that will be mated to their i-DTEC diesel engine cars that includes, Euro Accord, CRV and Euro Civic Hatchback. I did not see any thing for Civic Sedan Diesel. And yes, thats a TSX interior shot (WCF has messed up?).

He was saying Jazz is coming in 6 months, price will be below fabia. Its hard to put 100% trust on these sales guys. They can manipulate the truth as per their needs. May be as he knew I was convinced for Altis he told that Civic is coming in 3 months or may be true??

I don't think competition has given Honda a compelling reason for Civic upgrade. If at all Honda gives Civic an upgrade, I don't think there would be a significant change. I had a look at the new Corolla Altis yesterday. It is quite bland and ordinary to say the least. Civic in its current form is still ahead by miles.

Yup i think Facelift Civic is around the corner. Im also expecting it in 2-3 months as they have to meet the deliveries of New City first. But i dont think Civic will have much increase in price. After Altis launch i think Honda would be a lil more careful.

Jazz will come out sometime mid in 2009. It was supposed to come end of 09 as per Honda officials and it seems they have planned to launch 6 months before as per info in Business line (yesterday s edition) . I think facelift Civic in Jan 09 and then Jazz in June 09.

Karan, thanks for the insight on the new Civic.
And wow, if the new Civic is coming in October/November.

Here are additional pictures :

Commendably, Civic still manages a drool factor it had 2 years back.
My heart still beats for it.

These latest pictures look fabulous. I am in no hurry and can easily wait for few months. If these black interiors are coming to India then bye bye Altis. If I don't buy Altis and move towards Civic then all the credit will go to Honda's seriousness towards Indian market.

I thought you already sold on a Altis! Too much confusion i see. I think you heart says buy Altis and mind says wait on buddy! Well i dont think Indian Civic will get black interiors. Facelift Civic is 2 months away so my advice is wait for it.

True. Wait for the tweaked Civic. It's worth waiting & getting more leads. Something is coming for sure by the year end.

so i made a HUGE mistake should i say or a good thing im not sure, had my chequebook in hand was going to honda for the civic. and before going dropped in toyota for a corolla auto test drive, and here we are 15 laks on road a damn good car and i am in love. the power seats, the hid's, the cruise control is a crazy gadget for sure and the steering controls, it is 25k more than the civic and i dont know. so i drove corolla auto, civic auto, accord auto. came back with my chequebook and now thinking what to get ultimately... jazz is coming in dec or jan for sure the dealer told me so civic launch in 2 months im not sure either...
