Post Current civic or Wait for Civic Facelift ?

Worth buying a civic now ?Considering the fact Honda makes a statement few days ago that it will launch new version(Facelift) of it's all Variants Ex: civic ?..How much it will be differ from current Civic ? Nhc zx firstly launched in Thailand & then came here so Currently civic in Thailand is same as we get here except (2.0) & that has Side mirror indicators & fog lamps ..So we expect to get only Foglamps & side mirror indicator or tail lamps & headlamps also ?
Thanks For reading
Cheers Mate's

go in for the present CIVIC as it has hardly been a year since the CIVIC was launched ,and so the facelifted version will take time to come , and ne way there wouldnt be ne MAJOR change in the look ...... so the resale wouldnt be hampered ....

Face lift...you shock all civic owners with this question...Definetly no change in the civic for a while..they've just launched it and its selling well...so no change required.

Honda will not do anything on the Civic for another year atleast. Its the fastest selling car in that segment and the competition is nowhere close to it right now (Corolla, Optra Royale, Skoda). Go for it now.

They are increasing Civic prices by 35K (approx) from March 15th. The tax holiday given by the UP govt has expired. So there's an extra 4% tax on their production which is being passed on to the customer. (Read this in Indian express, am trying to find a link to it)

So its better to get it now.

yeah the one sold here is almost the top of the line 1.8. Wish they launched the 16" wheels atleast.

guess lower end variants are almost certain.

Honda launched the OHC type 1 in 1998 and it was soon succeeded by the type 2 in 1999!! Though otherwise they have had two-three year intervals between facelifts.

I am not so sure of that. I think TYpe-II came in late 2000 or early 2001.

I liked the earlier Honda Accord's design and IMHO the new design / facelift on Accord is not as good as the earlier one.

So in case the Civic's new design is not as good as the current Civic, then I guess that the current design would have been a better option at that point of time.

The current Civic's design is a 10/10.

That's correct John, late 2000 was the launch.
