The all-new 2019 Honda Civic has been launched in India, with prices starting at ₹ 17.70 lakh and going up till ₹ 22.30 lakh for the top-end variant. The Honda Civic makes a comeback after 7 years and it's the 10th generation that makes its way to India. Honda has given the all-new Civic major updates over its predecessors as far as performance and technology is concerned. The 10th generations Honda Civic was first showcased at the 2018 Auto Expo but was launched now, after over a year. The biggest USP of the new Honda Civic is that it now gets a diesel engine. The previous civic was a petrol-only model and lack of a diesel variant eventually lead to its elimination from Honda's India line-up.
