Contrary to popular belief, ex-showroom prices of the 2020 BS-VI Honda Civic diesel have gone up by only ₹20,000 for the entry-level VX trim and remain unchanged for the top-spec ZX trim!
The 2020 BS-VI Honda Civic diesel has been launched today with prices starting at ₹20.75 lakh for the entry-spec VX trim and ₹22.35 lakh for the top-spec ZX trim. This is really lucrative pricing, keeping in mind that the BS-IV Civic diesel (in June 2019) was priced at ₹20.5 lakh (VX) and ₹22.31 lakh (ZX). All price figures are ex-showroom, Delhi. With this, the entire Civic portfolio is now BS-VI compliant. Honda claims the petrol Civic was BS-VI compliant ever since its launch in March 2019.
As we informed our readers earlier, there are no mechanical changes on the BS-VI Civic diesel. It continues to be powered by the 1.6-litre four-cylinder i-DTEC turbo diesel unit that develops 118bhp & 300Nm (power & torque figures are unchanged as well). In the BS-VI guise, the Honda Civic diesel's fuel-efficiency is pegged at 23.9km/l. A six-speed manual transmission continues to be the sole gearbox option.
Feature-wise, the safety kit gets a small upgrade, with the lower-spec VX trim now equipped with curtain bags. As a result, both trims of the Civic diesel now offer six airbags as standard.
Prices of the BS-VI Honda Civic petrol range from ₹17.94 lakh to ₹21.25 lakh, ex-showroom Delhi.
