Honda has stated that Civic is not only helping the Japanese company drive up the numbers but is contributing in a big way to the growth of the executive sedan segment in India. The cumulative sales number of executive sedans in the country between April and October of 2019 stood at 4,763 units and the period saw a growth of 9.5%. "The comeback of the Civic this year has given the much needed boost to the executive sedan segment and its one of the few segments which have grown despite the current market slowdown," said Rajesh Goel, senior vice president and director, sales and marketing at Honda Cars India.
