There is no better example of this direction than today's introduction of the 2013 Honda Civic."

The 2013 Honda Civic Sedan, which is America's best-selling compact car and will celebrate its 40th anniversary there, went on sale on November 29 with a large number of changes to further increase its market leadership.

With the 2013 Honda Civic hitting roads in the US, car enthusiasts in India are hoping that this new updated sedan may be launched in the country too. However, no official statement has so far been made by the company officials as yet and it looks that the company is in no mood to launch the 2013 Honda Civic in the country. The production of the current generation Honda Civic has already been discontinued in India owing to sluggish demand. However, those that were manufactured earlier are still available for sale.
