Honda Atlas has launched the 2019 Civic facelift today in en event held at Royal Palms Lahore. The facelift, which can best be described as minor cosmetic addons have seen an increase in price as well.
The 2019 Honda Civic facelift will be offered in three tirms. The standard 1.8 liter i-VTEC gets a cruise control. The 1.8 liter Oriel variant get LED headlamps, LED fog lights, chrome garnish on front & rear bumper, trunk cover, new 16″ alloys and the infamous shark fin antenna.
The flagship 1.5 liter Turbo variant gets an RS badge like other markets. It also gets a new ECM module, red RS emblem at front & rear, full black interior, LED headlamps, LED fog lights, chrome garnish on front & rear bumper, rear spoiler, trunk cover, new 17″ alloys and the shark fin antenna.
The 2019 Honda Civic facelift variants are priced as:
|1.8L i-VTEC||PKR 3,199,000|
|1.8L i-VTEC Oriel||PKR 3,399,000|
|1.5L Turbo||PKR 3,799,000|
Considering the above, apart from the new LED headlamps and the 1.5 liter Turbo variant which gets a new ECM module, the changes implied to the facelift in Pakistan are minimalistic and mainly cosmetic in nature. The true features which were added to the international Civic facelift, as discussed in our earlier post, including the new front bumper where the lower apron now sports a one-piece look instead of three, remain absent.
Honda Atlas has started to take bookings of the 2019 Civic facelift against PKR 1.2 million whereas the delivery of vehicles will be made in July 2019.
