The only area where the 2021 Civic seems to be lagging is motorcycle safety. It scored 8.32 out of 16, which is only slightly above 50%. The new Honda Civic does not have a dedicated nearside blind spot detection system. It uses a lane clock feature instead. This gave him only 2.32 marks out of 8 in blind spot detection. Another important safety device missing is the rear view camera. Due to this, the Civic got 0 points for the rear visualization.

The Civic has been launched and discontinued twice in the Indian market. It was first dropped in 2013 and later bought back in 2019. This was the 10th gen model launched in India in 2019. The Civic was again discontinued in India in December 2020, apparently due to low sales numbers. In the near future, Honda is likely to focus on the SUV segment in India. The company is developing a new mid-size SUV which is expected to be launched in India in 2023.
