Honda knows that Indians have blind faith in anything dished out by the company and our research and past products have proved that we can get away with premium prices for run of the mill products just by using the HONDA brand. Hence, the new technologically advanced Civic's prices will be a rip-off. And yes, since we will be giving you an oppurtunity and privelige to buy and own a Honda, do not expect any discounts on the product. Take it or leave it!

Trying my hand at "what they say and what they actually mean". :)

If they don't price it properly, people might go in for an Accord

Bit like the C Class way - "too expesive so migh as well by an E class"

This is becoming more and more common. When my sister bought the Mazda3, the fully loaded ones were more expensive than Mazda 6 base model which came with lot of these features as standard. Tough decision it was but lots of people esp. women dont want a big car.

True but most dodo's are not interested in that - it is space, milege, image otherwise it wuld be raining Octy RS's

It would be around 11-13 L. They gonna place it to kill the market of Octavia and Corolla.. Honda is just short of a premium hatchback now :) After small car they will have descent apprearance in every category..

i guess neo on wheels is absolutely right about the price ranges !

VMG 20th June 2006 21:55

I heard it is only 110 as aganist 125 in corolla and 150 in RS.
Is this true?

200mph 20th June 2006 21:58

@ vgm : dude were you got the news from ?

VMG 20th June 2006 22:05

Spoke to Sundaram Honda today at Chennai. He said it is only 110 but he is also not very sure.

200mph 20th June 2006 22:16

oh okay... hope for the best .

neoonwheels 20th June 2006 22:21

They will surely keep the horses short of that in Accord.. In this segment Corolla is continuously losing its market share so Octi is the dominating left in the category... I dont think they will release 110 (Which seems underpowered) civic.. It will be around 120-130 range... Lets hope for the best...
