While launching a new vehicle, Honda always receives mega attention in the automotive world. Same is the case with much awaited Honda Civic 11th generation model, which made its entrance in the global market.
As the bar was set so high by 10th generation Honda Civic with respect to style and performance, there is a lot of expectations from 11th generation Civic, as this is one of the most famous in the C-Segment cars category.
Honda, on the other hand, has a history of switching the Civic’s styling between radicality and subtlety every generation. The 8th generation Civic, dubbed the ‘Civic Reborn,’ featured a bold new style, while the 9th generation Civic, dubbed the ‘Rebirth,’ was more subtle. Similarly, the 11th generation Civic was built to be more subdued than the 10th generation Civic, which had aggressive styling.
However, this does not indicate that the new design is not as per standards, as majority of the followers do like the new elegant design. With a slight medication in the wheelbase and wider track made it look more balanced than the 10th generation Civic.
At the moment, Honda only launched this version as a sedan, meanwhile, the flagship version such as Type-R and its sports version will be accessible at later dates.
There are two engine variants for the Sedan. A 2.0-liter naturally aspirated 4-cylinder petrol engine with 158 horsepower and 187 Nm of torque is the base engine. A 1.5-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder petrol engine with 180 hp and 240 nm of torque is the more powerful alternative. A CVT automatic gearbox sends all of the power to the front wheels.
The new Civic has McPherson Struts in the front and a Multi-link coil-spring setup in the back, as is normal. Despite its stiffness, this suspension configuration makes for a more easily controlled and engaging driving experience.
Features & Interior
Honda appears to have taken into account customer feedback from previous models, as the interior design of the 11th generation model has been improved significantly. The black interior complements the silver trim parts, giving the car a luxury appearance.
The base trim comes with a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with many hard controls as standard. A larger 9.0-inch touchscreen with a 10.2-inch digital Head Unit Display (HUD) will be available on the higher touring trim level.
Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard, and a wireless mirroring feature is available on the optional larger screen.
Other features include 10 airbags, multiple driver assistance systems, multiple drive modes, adaptive cruise control, and ABS braking with EBD and BA technology.
