Honda unveils its global best seller Civic
Panaji, July 8: Honda Siel Cars India Limited, manufacturer of premium cars in the country, has launched its 'Honda Civic' brand with advanced features including sleek aerodynamic exteriors and futuristic interiors in Goa today.
Available in manual and automatic versions, the Civic was unveiled by the company's regional manager (West) Sunil Gambhir at the Coastal Honda showroom in St Inez in presence of the latter's managing director Mr Manoj M Caculo.
The manufacturer said Civic is the only car in its segment equipped with a five speed automatic transmission with a unique 'paddle shift' option which can be operated using racing inspired paddle switches, located just behind the steering spoke.
The paddle shift, a first for India, provides the convenience of an automatic with enhanced driving pleasure of a manual.
With its aesthetically appealing mono-form sport design, having a dynamic flowing upper body and a solid and muscular lower body, the vehicle appears most eye-catching on Indian roads even as its interiors were new-age and user friendly, he added.
Voted as the car of the year in the US and Canada, and Most Advanced Technology car in Japan, the Civic had bagged the 'Top Safety Pick-Gold' award of the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety in California.
