could this mean that Honda will perhaps be relaunching the new Civic once again?
Yes! I too have the same question in my mind. What is this new generation Civic doing at the Honda’s factory in Tapukara, Rajasthan. Now according to the reports on India today there is a possibility of Honda launching the new generation Civic in India within this year. The Civic introduced in 2006 and later discontinued in 2013 due to weak sales numbers. One of the leading causes of such poor sales figures was the lack of a diesel engine option.
Now that the new Civic was spotted recently at the Tapukara facility in Rajasthan could it mean that Honda is planning to relaunch the sedan in the Indian market once again?
