The automobile company Honda has introduced Honda into the country after a gap of 7 years .Honda Car India has confirmed to carandbike that the sedan has already received over 2400 bookings. The 2400 bookings for the Civic were received in just 40 days which shows that customers liked the car.
Currently sold in more than 170 markets, India is only one of 10 of those locations where the car is made. India, though, gets only the sedan and not the hatchback or even the Coupe, but not all of these 10 locations produce both the petrol and the diesel and India holds that distinction.
The company Honda says that the petrol accounts for over 85 per cent of the cars booked. And within that the top end ZX variant has the most demand too – as much as 70 per cent. It is ecpected that the Civic manages will keep the momentum going as it could spark the comeback of the midsize sedan.
The segment bestseller is the Toyota Corolla which is now feeling the heat from the Civic. The Skoda Octavia and the Hyundai Elantraare the other rivals in the segment. Nissan, Renault, Tata, and Ford do not have a product here.
