Not the First Honda Civic in Pakistan to Launch in March
Honda Atlas has just launched the all-new 11th generation Civic sedan in Pakistan. The vehicle has arrived here within a year of making its global debut.
The 11th gen Honda Civic equipped with a 1.5L turbocharged engine is available in three variants priced at PKR 50.99 lac for base, PKR 53.99 lac for Oriel and PKR 61.49 lac for the flagship RS version.
This is the seventh generation of Civic in Pakistan to be assembled locally as Honda Atlas that was incorporated back in November 1992 saw their first local assembled model, the 5th gen Civic rolling off the assembly line in May 1994. Although looking at the chronicle of events, Honda usually introduce new models in Pakistan during the first half of the year, however this is only the second time that a Civic model has been launched in the month of March. Last time this happened was 21 years ago, when the 7th gen Civic sedan was launched in March 2001.
Having replaced the 6th generation facelift which is considered as the most eye-catching car of that time, the 7th gen slowly grew its place among local consumers. Apart from major styling differences, the suspension was also changed from a double wishbone to MacPherson struts, in order to lower costs.
