This is What the All-New 2016 Honda Civic Will Look Like


Honda unveiled the all-new Civic Concept at the New York International Auto Show giving the public its first glimpse of what the highly-anticipated tenth-generation model will look like. After being criticized for being lackluster (even after its extensive re-design), the ninth-generation and current model will be saying goodbye this fall (third to fourth quarter 2015) in favor of a model that focuses on ‘spirited performance and class-leading versatility’.

The all-new Civic Concept rides on a longer wheelbase, and a lower, wider stance to give it sportier looks and handling. Proportionally, it has a longer hood, shorter overhangs, a more setback windshield, and shorter rear deck making it much more athletic. The all-new Civic Concept also features new LED headlamps flanked by the solid wing grille.



The all-new model is targeting to be the benchmark in efficiency, dynamic performance, safety, and manufacturing productivity. The all-new platform uses the full suite of Earth Dreams technology including a new 1.5-liter VTEC Turbo with direct injection. This engine can be mated to a short-shifting 6-speed manual or a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). It’s also deemed to be one of the safest in its class featuring technology such as Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Warning, Multi-Angle Rearview Camera, Adaptive Cruise Control, and Honda Lane Watch.

Honda is calling the upcoming Civic a “real game changer” and marks the first time its design and engineering is led by Honda’s North American R&D team. The design is from Honda’s Los Angeles design studio while the subsequent development centered in Raymond, Ohio.



Honda also announced that the all-new Civic will be available in several body styles including sedan and coupe. This will be joined by a five-door hatchback as well. And aside from the Si model, the US market will also get a mental Type-R version.

    1. Yes, I agree.
      The back of this car still looks un-finished.

  5. Uly, is this design for the global model or for the USDM variant only? I hope the Asian/EUDM version would have a different design than this one. I don't feel this design, it looks riced-out straight from the factory. It's as if they over-compensated for the boring, lackluster, ugly & cheap-looking 9th-gen with this overstyled design, just like the current OA-looking City & Jazz.

  6. Ano connect nun sa kung Ferrari yung sasakyan niya? Kayo talagang mga Honda ricer fanbois, very defensive at insecure talaga kayo nowadays dahil napapag-iwanan na kayo sa styling at technology. Mas boring na kayo sa Toyota ngayon.
