Upcoming 11th-gen Honda Civic teased ahead of November 17 debut
Honda will debut the new-gen Honda Civic sedan globally in prototype guise on November 17. The new model will be the 11th edition of the family car and is expected to be completely revamped.
A short video teaser seems to attest to this fact, showing a completely revised look. The aggressive look of the current Civic seems to have been toned down a bit, with this car also taking on many of the more subtle styling cues of the new Hinda City. The fascia now carries a those wide jewelled LED headlamps, between which is a strong edge to the bonnet and a simple-looking grille.
In profile too, the Civic seems to continue with its coupe-ish roofline to an extent, also retaining the unique kink to the glasshouse and a stubby boot with an integrated spoiler. The taillamps carry over the L-shaped LED highlighting from the front and have lost their C-shaped signature for an angular two-part look. The rear bumper looks more intricate now with a mesh insert around the prominent exhaust tips.
On the inside, we expect to see extensive changes with the now-standard set of features like digital instrumentation, a large touchscreen with fewer physical buttons and some degree of active safety systems and connected-car tech.
A plug-in hybrid version should feature prominently among international models. If Honda does decide to bring the new Civic to India, we should expect a version of the current-car's 2.0-litre petrol/CVT powertrain, with maybe even a 1.5-litre turbo-petrol being added. The new Civic is being shown in prototype guise, before a faithful production version debuts sometime next year. A hatchback version should also debut along with the sedan shown here.
