EXTERIORS
Styling is simply great. Looks are
a class higher than the actual car is. The lights are simple
awesome.The grille also is very beautiful though a bit on the shiny
side. But there is one main problem-ground clearance...my dad has
gotten the side skirt to hit a rock, side walk, etc... otherwise it is
a great car. Right now there a few scratches here and there...

Interiors:
Again
Styling is simple great. the futuristic design is a class ahead. This
design always reminds me why i chose this fabulous car. The steering
has audio-mounted controls so one can change the volume or seek tracks
without taking their eyes off the road.The steering's feeling is great.
The seats are leather so it gets quite hot in Summer. There are many
place to keep small things. The rear seats are very comfy. I always sit
in the rear so i love it. Plus there is a lot of legroom too.

DRIVING:
When
the car is on the move, it is very silent. The engine does get a bit
loud when revved hard like around 4000 rpm. But it is like a racy sound
so it is not a pain to hear it. My car is the 2.0 litre engine so it
has a lot of torque. It can pull away from 80-100 in around 2000 rpm
and quite fast too. My dad has reached 200 kph in it and even at that
speed it was not wobbling at all!!
My dad was very surprised at this
car because previously he had owned a 1999 Toyota Soluna and it wobbled
at 160 kph...The gearshift is very smooth and the paddle-shifts are
also very helpful during rush hour.

OVERALL:
This car has broken all records for this segment and no competition yet...
Even the new Altis cannot match it here.

here are some pics:

wow, superb review of your Altis archit, yes nothing comes closer to beat civic in this segment, it has its own charisma, interiors, and its digi speedometer makes it different from others which was one of its kind for indian market as well.Only thing is its GC and too lower seating which is not of my like else is a superb product from Honda.
Thanks for the pics, finally you clicked more of her.share some of its interiors as well.

Hey type-r, you have got one ***y car brother.
The thing i loved was the 2.0l engine.[:)] Here we have the 1.8l.[anger]

Could you please tell us the official spec's of the 2.0l engine on your civic ?

Sheer beauty type-r!
The ground clearance is a major issue here too.Ask anyone who is in Mumbai.Our dear potholes love us so much they leave love bites on our cars.[frustration]
