Ciimo is a car band launched by Dongfeng-Honda at the 2011 Guangzhou motor show for the the Chinese market only. It also refer to the first and currently (as of early 2014) only model under the brand, a re-badged eighth-gen Honda Civic. The Ciimo and the ninth-gen Civic, released in China in October 28, 2011, in Wuhan,Hubei, have been built at the same plant in Wuhan, Hubei.

Deliveries of the Ciimo started on April 22, 2012. Only one variant has been provided, a four-door sedan with a sporty touch. As differences with the eighth-gen Civic are few, some buyers and even dealerss have changed the Ciimo logo "back" to the Civic one–despite the car maker’s disapproval.

The price cut caused by re-badging has not attracted as many consumers as Dongfeng Honda wished. In 2013 only 12,563 units of the Ciimo were sold (vs. 64,399 of the nineth-gen Civic). In 2014, 11,014 units were delivered.
