Honda Debuts Sportiest Civic Design with 10th-Generation Civic Concept

Civic_Concept_01 Civic_Concept_04

Honda unveiled its ultra-sporty Civic Concept at the New York International Auto Show in April. The Civic Concept provided a tantalizing glimpse forward to the design direction for the all-new 10th-generation Civic lineup launching in the U.S. this fall.

With a sharper focus on spirited performance and class-leading versatility, the new Civic lineup will include Civic Sedan, Coupe and Si models along with the return of the Civic hatchback, followed by the launch of a new Civic Type-R as the performance flagship of the Civic lineup. The new Civic also will be the first U.S. model to apply new VTEC Turbo engines from the company’s Earth Dreams Technology powertrain series.

Featuring a longer wheelbase and lower, wider stance, the new Civic emphasizes its aggressive personality and the engaging experience it will provide behind the wheel. Proportionally it boasts a longer hood, a shorter front overhang, a more set-back greenhouse and a shorter rear deck, lending the Civic a more athletic and “in motion” appearance.

The low and wide proportions are underscored by its more aggressive wheel-to-body relationship and pronounced fender arches. Bright new LED headlights flanking the “Flying H” Honda grille, which is supported by deeply sculpted lower air intakes, highlight its sporty and expressive face.

Leveraging this new platform in conjunction with new Earth Dreams Technology powertrains – including a new 1.5L VTEC Turbo engine with direct injection, a short-shifting 6-speed manual transmission, and a new, more sporty and efficient continuously variable transmission (CVT) – the Civic will target class-leading fuel economy ratings and fun-to-drive performance with near-luxury levels of cabin quietness and ride refinement.

The new Civic will also target class-leading levels of safety performance and will offer the Honda Sensing suite of advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies, including Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Warning, Multi-Angle Rearview Camera, Adaptive Cruise Control and Honda LaneWatch, along with Honda’s next-generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure.
