The tenth generation of the Honda Civic is almost at our doorsteps, as the Japanese company is preparing for a global launch. The 2016 Honda Civic will be shown for the first time in flesh on September 16 in both Detroit and Los Angeles.
Previously, Honda showed a concept of the popular vehicle during the New York auto show earlier this year.
For the September 16 event, Honda will show only the sedan version of the 2016 Civic. Fans and prospective buyers around the world will see the exterior and the interior of the sedan, with the coupe version, the Si, five-door-hatchback and the Type R scheduled for a later release.
The unveiling of the new Civic will happen just hours after the start of the Frankfurt motor show on the other side of the Atlantic. Honda has scheduled two simultaneous events, one in Detroit and one in Los Angeles. During the Frankfurt motor show, Honda will show the existing models such as Jazz, HR-V, the 2015 Civic, and the new concept, 2&4.
While details of the 2016 Honda Civic are basically non-existent, we can expect a sportier look from the popular car. Some of the design lines will include new, broad wing-like design for both the grille and the headlights. The front bumper will be enriched with faux intakes at both corners. The roofline is coupe-inspired, giving it a sporty look to the sedan.
Previously, spy photos of the new Civic showed a resemblance to the Accord and the Acura, especially in the headlights department.
Inside the Civic, fans will find the new touchscreen system along with heated rear seats and multiple luxury features both for safety and comfort.
The entry model is expected to feature a 1.5-liter gasoline engine, producing around 200hp. The higher end model is expected with a 1.8-liter engine. Honda has also promised a Type R version of the 2016 Civic.
The 2016 Honda Civic is expected to hit dealerships by the end of the year. The coupe version will be released sometime during next year, with a five-door hatchback also in the works. The hatchback will make its long awaited return to the US market. Just months after the US release, Honda is promising an Australian release for the 2016 Civic.
