The price seems to be more city dependant. In Bangalore a used Civic costs more than an equivalent Corolla. As GTO pointed out in above post, its the same case in Mumbai as well.

This can be confirmed from existing owners of the two cars.
One used car dealer I spoke to said that the maintenance costs of a three year old Civic are much higher than an equivalent Corolla.

@filcord: I was told the same, but of late I hear Honda have slashed spare prices.

Speaking for Bangalore only, used Civic prices are slightly more (but not much) than the equivalent used Corolla prices.

People, don't forget that Civic is expensive than the Altis outright. If you see Civic and Corolla pricing to be similar in the used market, it surely means that Civic depreciates a little more.
