No, a 2-door is hard to come by. But a 4 door is just as good looking. Personally, I feel a car should have a boot.

Imagine this with a snazzy paint job, some nice rims, and 200 hp. It could probably be done under 6.5 too.

So, u don't know about the civic im talking about.
The civic is the most modded car on the planet.
500 bhp civics are not uncommon.

Thanks in advance
Karthik, How did you get to know that the Cedia has a lewss resale ? I called up a few car dealers in chennai and no one seems to have one. Dont take it wrong.. but then, when there are no used Cedia's in the market, how can their resale be low ?

Isn't it too early to have a Cedia in the second hane market. The owners will be weeping at the price cuts and might have decided to retain on account of the low resale value. Very similar to what hap to Daewoo Cielo...However its a great car to own. I heard that it gives 12 Kms to a litre with AC in Bangalore city.

As I said in the post above, There are nissans doing 1000+ but are they capable of utilizing those horses is the question.

And yes I would certainly want to know the facts behind the claims you made of civic being the most modded car on the planet. (In a good way.)

LOL. I think we need another thread on this as the civic is indeed the most popular car for mods on the planet. Especially the older gen ones.

Even movies like F&F acknowledge that, if you remember the group of black civic.

Just search the net on modded civics and see yaar.

Civic's sell ten times more so ok I got the facts I suppose.

In that case, toyota corolla's sell as much as the civics and my brain massage brings me to the conclusion that even corolla's are modded more than the lancer.

hey , Karthik why dont you look at a corolla too in that case. Even corolla's are modded for 300-400 bhp's.

No offence meant my friend, but if you have driven the Corolla and then the Import Civic you would not post what you just did. a Corolla , no matter what done to it still feels like sponge, it's too soft of a commuter car. Whereas a Old Civic in terms of being a driver's car is a baap of the local beast City Vtec,
Coming down to facts, if you have been following the Import racer scene in Asia or USA, Civic has been an all time favorite. not just bcos of it's cheap but those engines have a hell lot more to give than a corolla. The civic has various Engine variants, one's like the Type R which chruns out 220+ horses in stock condition.
Rarely anyone races a corolla (especially the newer gen ones), whereas Civic has cult status. Not that a corolla cannot achive high speeds or develop horses on the road, it just ain't sporty enough to drive and the quarter mile times are not great due to a lot of weight.
Join any international racing forum and ask Corolla Vs Civic , you will get your answers.
Cheers.

blueraven, I am not supporting corolla here at all. I am not an avid follower of the import racing scene either.

my point here is that civic is not as wild a driver's car as mitsubishi lancer. please read my last 2-3 pasts and you will gather what I am trying to say.

Hmm... A Honda Civic does sound nice. How much would be the resale price (approx)

I guess the Cedia will be prety great for performance modding as parts are easily available and thre are lots of options plus its a 2litre engine, and the car is known for its good handling.

@Neoranjith
Cedia has been out for over a year now and its long enough to get the car in the 2nd hand market. I'm sayin the resale will be low cuz it hardly sells (but its difficult to find one too)

Any good suggestions under 6.5lakhs are welcome

PS - I think we're goin into the 'What Car?' thread now

Cedia ain't too bad either. And since its already 115bhp/17kgm... i think someething near 200bhp is possible.

Its more like 10.5-11 if you drive it a bit hard. 12 if you have an extremely light foot... which is not a skill I possess :P.

Please remember that the Civic, especially the EG, was best known and loved for having double wishbones all around, front and rear. If you know your suspension, you will understand that this setup is otherwise found almost exclusively on supercars. It is a tribute to Honda engineering, which I daresay is the finest on the planet, that their engineers were able to build this into a cheap little econobox. And having driven both, I can vouch for the fact that an EG chassis will run circles around a Lancer.

karthik247, I'm sorry but I have to close this thread. I believe you're looking for a second hand Cedia and this thread is going on as what car you should buy.

This kind of discussion can happen in other section but not in Indian Car Market.

Anybody can help karthik247 through PM/phone call. This thread is closed.
