FINALLY!!!!!! 132 bhp!!!!! Wahaaaaaaayyyy.........
It's actually 132PS, thats 130bhp. But, it's still got a better power to weight ratio than the OHC Vtec, it's more powerful and has a bigger engine. So, expect some impressive acceleration figures.

The Civic is a great car. But its min. turning radius of 5.4 m compares unfavourably with that of the Honda City (4.7-4.9 m). And I don't know how anybody can put all that extra power and torque to use on Indian roads -- whether city or highway (with rare exceptions, like Mumbai-Pune Expressway).

Okay, paddle shift is a type of manual override for an auto gearbox. I first saw that on rally cars. They are are typically located below the steering on both sides, right side lever for upshifting and left for down shifting.

The advantage is simple- shifting gear is as easy as blinking your headlight.

Civic: Things I'm not happy about
 
There are two distinct things I'm not happy about:
1) The Plastic used in the driver/passenger door looks very downmarket. Almost as if it's made of the material that Chinese toys come from. I wished it was better looking and maybe a little more rigid. As it currently is, it's yuck!
2) Rear seat: The shoulder room is fine, the space between the passenger seat and the knees is fine. What is unacceptable for a car of this price is that I cannot rest my under-thighs on the seat. My feet will not slide under the passenger/driver seat and my ankles fouled with the bottom of the seat. Not acceptable at this price point.

Two other things that arent great (my opinion)
1) The rear of the car. I believe that the Civic (like the Accord) is better looking from the front and the back looks like a wedge. This could have been made better looking IMO.
2) The price! - Why should it be so costly!??!
