The sedans used to be the so called ‘status symbol’ among the car buyers in India. Their high aspirational value made them some of the sought after cars in the country with most people dreaming of buying a three-box model on upgrading from their hatchbacks. Back in the day, bigger models, like the Honda Civic and the Skoda Octavia, enjoyed a huge desirability factor working in their favour. With time, however, sedans lost their sheen and the limelight now is on the similarly priced SUVs. This lack of popularity is one of the biggest reasons for TKM’s reluctance to upgrade the Toyota Corolla Altis to meet BSVI standards. While the popularity of the latest Honda Civic is nothing to write home about, it’s still selling in pretty decent numbers if you consider the general lack of interest people have in the D-segment sedans. In fact, the tenth-gen Civic was off to a great start by clocking a sale of 2,291 units within two months of its launch. In all, the D-segmenter has clocked a sale of 5,315 units since its launch thirteen months ago. Recently, it came to light that the company has discontinued the diesel variant of the sedan. With this, the Civic will be now sold only with a BSVI-compliant 1.8-litre iVTEC petrol engine that comes mated to a CVT.
