2016 Honda Civic side

2015 Honda Civic was spotted lately outside Honda’s manufacturing facility in Tapukara, Rajasthan with a left hand drive spec confirming that it is a European hatchback model imported to India for Research & Development purpose. All said and done, the 2015 Honda Civic would not be seeing a release into the Indian Market any sooner, however Civic enthusiast can expect it to be displayed at the 2016 Auto Show and then a speculation of the launch.


The design of the 2015 Honda Civic has been completely revisited by the company, on the front bumper you can see large air intakes on the side embedded with fog lamps just above it you can see the DRL strip, giving a sporty finish, inspired by the Type R.

At the rear receive a new treatment with high-mount tail lights with LED accents. At the lower bumper reflectors are inserted keeping it very low with no visuals of the exhaust pipe, a premium look indeed and also gives way for a new engine possibility. When observed closely, you can see a plastic strip below the popped-out tail lights, this might be for some kind of testing and we close this topic without knowing the reason.


As to the power, there would be two variants powering the 2015 Honda Civic, a 1.4-liter engine operating at 99HP and claiming 0-100 in 13.4 seconds and a 1.8-litre engine pumping a massive 148-hp. As to the Indian perspective, expect a 1.6-litre diesel mill producing 118HP for that Honda claims it is the lightest diesel Engine in the world (it weighs 170kg) . Else, Honda could also use the small turbo VTEC engines which were announced last year, a 1-litre 3-cylinder engine and 1.5-litre 4-cylinder engine. We don’t want to speculate much as of now, as we are in the blind with the technical specs.


With Honda trying to showcase the 2015 Civic in and around north of the country and news of the 2015 Honda Civic floating the web, customers or Honda enthusiast could be at dilemma on the launch of the aggressive looking hatchback.
