2020 Honda Civic Now Gets Support for Mugen Accessories

Honda Civic Mugen Type R

The 2020 Honda Civic has now official support for Mugen accessories as the company has officially launched a long list of components that you could purchase and install in your car.

Customizing the car you own is a big-time hobby for many people because it helps you tune your hatchback into a sports car if you please.

The only catch here is that they are not going to significantly change the performance of the vehicle. Instead, a majority of the accessories sold by Mugen is focused on improving the design aesthetics of the Honda Civic. For people who are already delighted by the performance levels, this would provide a big upgrade in terms of looks. The exterior components are available for the Civic sedan and the hatchback which you can purchase based on your taste and your proposed budget.

Expensive Aesthetics Upgrade

In most cases, Civic is definitely not among the top vehicles when it comes to car customization. Yet, Mugen accessories are focused on a group of people who already own the vehicle and would love to give it an exciting sporty touch that it needs. The expensive aesthetics upgrade cost 97,900 yen if you want to change the front grille cover with a carbon fiber upgrade and the proud Mugen emblem on top of it. The integrated diffusers would set you back by 79,200 yen whereas the upgraded 19-inch multi-spoke aluminum wheels are priced at 53,900 yen. The upgrades are also available in Malaysia and pricing is similar to what you would convert from yen into RM.

The aero and wheel package is possibly one of the most expensive solutions out there. For those who are willing to completely change the look of the side skirts, the front and rear lip combined with 19-inch aluminum wheels will set you back by 407,000 yen. The bundled package allows you to save more than 40,000 yen because they are all being offered in a bundle but buying them individually will be an even more expensive option to go for.

For a lesser price, you can still upgrade your 2020 Honda Civic hatchback with door visors that cost 19,800 yen or RM 782. The carbon fiber side mirror caps cost 64,900 yen whereas the Mugen branded brake pads will cost 45,100 yen. Trying to go for all the components at once could significantly improve some performance but most important will enhance the aesthetics of the Honda vehicle to a whole new level.

2017 Honda Civic Type R Leaked Images are Here with Specifications

The 2017 Honda Civic Type R is heading to the Geneva Motor Show but just days before the official launch, photos of the car has got leaked along with some of its specifications.

The car is easily the top priority model that buyers have been anticipating for a long time now. The leaked images show the front and the rear end of the model showing its aggressive yet friendly design. The model is pretty similar to the concept version showcased last year. If you had the chance to see the concept and liked it, this one will be no different.

While Honda hasn’t explicitly announced it yet, it is evident that the Civic Type R will receive the most attention during the 2017 Geneva expo. The tenth-generation car will be powered by a 2.0-liter VTEC engine. The model’s production will be carried in Swindon in United Kingdom and the same will be exported to the United States for deliveries in the country. It will also be the first time a Honda Type R vehicle is confirmed to be sold in the North American region.

The concept model was revealed during the Paris auto show last month and Honda managed to capture the attention of people with its near production model. Some of the design changes made to the model include its extreme look accentuated by revamped front bumper, rear diffuser. The smoked lenses combined with the bumper design makes it very aggressive unlike any of the Civic from the past.

The actual specifications will be confirmed at the Geneva motor show. The 2017 Honda Civic Type R will be powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo engine producing about 340 horsepower and 450Nm of torque. The sources are reliable and there may not be any major changes to the powertrain used in the car. It can go from 0 to 62 miles per hour in just 5 seconds. All these performance boosts come from a tweaked version of the engine that is already being used by the current generation model.

Honda will continue to use the front wheel drive system and the powertrain will be mated to a six-speed manual gearbox system. The upcoming Civic Type R will directly compete with Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport S edition and aims to set new records to signify its importance in the performance division. The body shape has undergone some minor yet useful changes so as to achieve better speed, controls and improved aerodynamics.

2017 Honda Civic Revealed In New Spy Shots, Specs Detailed

The Civic has been around for a long time now with minimal upgrades now and then. From the recent spy shots, it looks like the 2017 Honda Civic might be the big overhaul that many buyers are waiting for.

The upcoming model is going to be a lot different than what people would associate with the Civic series. The car is set to be built entirely in the United Kingdom and sold in the region as well as other neighboring countries. While the model has been known to be a family friendly car which in other words could be considered as dull looks for many, the new launch is going to be completely sporty and lure young buyers into it. The spy shots reveal a Civic which is not camouflaged and gives us a clear outlook of the car.

The concept was first showcased at the 2016 Geneva motor show. Within months, spy photographers have managed to capture the production version and it doesn’t look much different than the one we saw at the Geneva show this year. The interiors are perfectly clear with a revamped infotainment system. The car scheduled to go on sale next February will be priced around £15,000. The actual pricing of the model can be confirmed only when the manufacturer announces it.

It is official that the 2017 Honda Civic will be powered by a 1.0-liter and 1.5-liter VTEC turbo engines. Another variant will use a 1.6-liter i-DTEC diesel engine. The cars are scheduled to be built in the manufacturing plant located in Swindon. The new model features a sporty looking low roofline and the size of the bonnet has been extended further. It also has revamped taillights, twin exhaust pipes and boomerang shaped rear lamps. All these components when put together make the Civic stylish like never before.

The current model spotted through spy photographs might undergo some changes if Honda bosses feel it needs some minor tweaks.  The changes are expected to make the car easy to steer, provide better control for the driver and high maneuverability.

A range of connectivity features and luxurious add-ons are expected to be part of the dashboard. We don’t have any information in that regard yet but it won’t be long before details related to the 2017 Honda Civic start trickling in. Stay tuned and we will bring you everything you need to know in the following weeks.

2017 Honda Civic First Look Images and More Details Emerge

The 2017 Honda Civic is a long awaited dream come true for long time Civic fans.

The model has been one of the most successful launches from Honda. Revamping its existing design is expected to bump its sales quotient one more time.

The new version of the Civic is all set to go into production in Honda’s plant in UK. The car is being sportier so as to make it appealing to the younger crowd. An official launch will take place in 2017 but the test mule version of the model is already out on the roads. The automobile manufacturer earlier launched the concept version of the car at the Geneva motor show. The spy pictures of the model got leaked giving a good idea of what to expect.

The high back found in the existing model has been removed and the roofline is rather lowered so as to give the much needed sporty look to the car. The rear screen is steep in appearance while the front bonnet is longer. While majority of the 2017 Honda Civic is camouflaged, it is evident that the car is all set to be upgraded with a sporty looking front bumper. Even though, Honda has opted for an extremely stylish car, they have kept all the changes subtle so as to retain their existing customers while attracting new ones.

A fine balance in design is witnessed in the new Civic which is equipped with twin exhaust pipes. Most models with such design offer amazing performance and if the concept model is something to go with, we can be sure that it is going to faster than the Type S. The rear lamps are in the shape of a boomerang and a similar pattern is found in the taillights. In the interior, the engineers have opted for a conventional design but the changes made ensure the car looks current gen.

The dashboard is made in such a way that it is readily accessible to the driver and the touchscreen allows easy navigation as well as complete control over the infotainment system. Talking about the upcoming launch, chief designer of the car, Diasuke Tsutamori said that the prototype which is being tested in the roads is very close to the actual production car. People may be surprised to see the end product as it will look a lot like the prototype with minimal changes.

He added that the team has worked hard to ensure the 2017 Honda Civic looks current and stylish when compared with its predecessor.

Honda Gearing Up to Show 2016 Civic Coupe at LA Auto Show

If there is an award for the most number of variants in a series, Honda will easily win it for their Civic series. The auto manufacturer is going to unveil a brand new 2016 Civic Coupe at the upcoming Los Angeles Auto Show.

The show has been gaining traction with multiple vendors gearing up to showcase some of their best vehicles. Top brands, including Audi, BMW and Mercedes Benz have confirmed their participation in the event. Honda will obviously be taking part in the event during which they have confirmed that the 2016 Civic Coupe will be on display for the first time. They are planning to launch a two door model with much sportier lines, according to the official press statement.

The smaller two door variant of the coupe will be using the same 2.0-liter inline four engine or the 1.5-liter turbo engine as found in the four door model. Civics are known for the lineup it offers and Honda promised that even though the model is around for 43 years now, they are going to show a lineup like never before, during the Los Angeles Auto Show. It will be the most diverse and innovative choices ever offered, claimed the company.

Apart from the four door and the two door models, there will be an utterly stylish Type R model, a five door larger hatchback design and a Si. The Type R is relatively new to people in the United States and it will probably be one of the fresh entries to land in the country in a long time. After the auto show reveal, Honda will bring the coupes to the dealership stores within a month’s time.

Earlier, Honda revealed the Clarity FCV in the Tokyo Motor Show. The company, in their detailed press statement, has talked at length about the new clarity fuel cell that they plan to use. It will be an innovative alternative fuel technology which allows the designers to mount the fuel cell stack as well as the drivetrain system in the front of the car.

The Los Angeles Auto Show is scheduled to take place on November 18 during which Honda will provide more technical details about the 2016 Civic Coupe lineup. We expect the automobile manufacturer to reveal the pricing of the car for the United States customers. With so many models available, it might be difficult to keep track of the price list, but we will surely bring it all.

2016 Honda Civic – 5 Things That Make the Car Impressive

The brand new 2016 Honda Civic is out and while it may fool you by looking very conventional, the sedan has a lot more packed inside to be the next big commuter’s choice next year.

As a matter of fact, Honda has the upper hand with their Civic model because the car has been out for a decade and this is the 10th generation launch. If they choose to go with minor changes and launch a mediocre car, people would still buy it. They didn’t do it surprisingly, but have spent months working on new technologies and a completely new body to make the sedan extra safe.

The team has come up with an amazing body design which is easily the first point that makes it so good on the road. The car faces stiff competition from companies like Ford and Mazda which has prompted them to alter the front, making it look meaner and sharp. The wheels as well as the tailpipes are modified as well, especially the boomerang inspired headlights and the car looks muscular than ever.

If you haven’t noticed by now, the car is much bigger than it used to be, which boosts it legroom and headroom. People in the rear gain 2.2 inches extra space to be precise while the car is 3 inches longer than it used to be. For an average consumer, it might look meager when spaces are measured in inches, but you can experience it when you actually sit in the car.

A couple of new technologies have been incorporated into the vehicle which is another impressive feature that makes the 2016 Honda Civic irresistible. It supports Apple’s Car Play and Android Auto on all its trim levels that are above the EX standard. The car is also equipped with Honda Sensing, a brand name under which, a new list of safety features have been incorporated for the safety of the passengers.

It features a lighter body made possible by Advanced Compatibility Engineering. The technology allowed the car designers to shave off 68 pounds off it and it is mainly built on top of steel with advanced layering that makes it extremely robust, yet lightweight. Being lightweight obviously leads to better control as well as increased fuel efficiency.

2016 Honda Civic is powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 158 horsepower which is more than enough for everyday commute. With everything in place including an affordable price tag, we can say that Honda has hit jackpot one more time with the Civic.

2016 Honda Civic Designed with More Class and Improved Performance: Errors of the Predecessor Corrected  

The new 2016 Honda Civic has been redesigned with added class and enhanced performance features.

The company openly admitted to the fact that the previous 9th generation model failed to live up to customer expectations. Now, Honda has taken pains to ensure all errors and goof-ups stand corrected in the 10th generation Civic.

The predecessor was launched in 2012 and irritants included a jittery ride, excessive noise, cheap interiors and inept handling. Hence, the 9th generation fell short of expectations and in an attempt to correct these goofs, Honda brought about a few upgraded about 18 months later which was just about passable.

For the 2016 model, Honda has refurbished the Civic brand by constructing it on an entirely new platform and employing two new engines. As against the outgoing model, the 10th generation Civic is lower, wider and longer and yet is more lightweight too.

While the top-end models will feature a 1.5L 4-cylinder turbocharged engine delivering 174 hp, the lower-end specs will feature a new 2L 4-cylinder unit delivering 158 hp. The engines are connected to automatic transmission system; the manual option is available only in the Base LX model.

The 2016 Honda Civic is positioned not only against the regular Toyota Corolla and similar vehicles but also to take on the Audi A3. While the 2L engine units in the base level offer sufficient power provided the demand is reasonable, the top-spec’s new engine offers immense advantages for a silent and smooth drive.

The ample and ever-ready torque allows the driver to achieve good speed at the lower and mid-level range where the CVT is more palatable. The silently working turbo engines also masks any jerks and sudden movements in the transmission system.  The top-end models featuring this new engine are the Touring, EX-T and EX-L versions.

The chassis is also redesigned and fine-tuned for improved and fluent handling. The steering is also direct and smooth and the turn-in response remains good even when the turning is sharper. The car movement is steady and controlled thanks to a refined body control.  The excessive noise of the earlier model is now more muted and all these factors make the new 2016 Honda Civic a substantial and mature feel.

The interiors are more contemporary and minimalist without the clutter of the earlier twin-layer instrument panel. The base models come with a simple audio system while the higher-end models feature Honda’s capacitive touchscreen along with the infotainment system which supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

All models of the new Civic will feature automatic climate control, automatic up/down front windows and standard rear view camera.  The EX versions and above will also feature remote start. An additional electronic parking brake saves space, reduces effort and adds more oomph to the car. Moreover, this adds so much of storage room between the two seats in front that multiple iPads can be accommodated in the configurable console.

While the USB port is fixed at a very low and inconvenient position, cup-holders, trays and cubbies are ample and conveniently located. The EX-L comes with a power driver seat, the EX-T and above models come with heated seats and the Touring model also gets heated rear seats.

Although the first type to be rolled out is the sedan, two others would also join the 2016 Honda Civic lineup including a 5-door hatchback and a coupe. The coupe is expected to be launched in winter while the hatchback a year later. The expected price range would be between $18,640 and $26,500.

2016 Honda Civic is Going to Revoke Design Factors from Si  

Creating the next gen car is a difficult task for the designers because they have the crucial task to satisfy their audience.

In order to make the 2016 Honda Civic stand out from the rest, they are going to borrow some design factors from the previously launched Si Civic variant.

Buyers who have had the chance to drive the Civic in the past will be familiar with the new offering. The news is nearly official, according to which designers will be using some of the elements from the Civic Si, which belong to the ninth generation model. Honda has decided to bring things from the past because they believe that in order to appease buyers in North America, a sense of familiarity is mandatory. Besides, it keeps the risk levels under control when a tried and tested design is rehashed with new tweaks to make it look stylish and next gen.

The exterior of the upcoming 2016 Honda Civic is expected to be extremely sharp and seamless with taillights connected to the grille in a unique manner. Similarly, the interior of the car will also be modified accordingly so that there are no unwanted gaps or obstacles in the design. Seamless uni-body finish is what automobile manufacturers rely upon and the same will be used in the upcoming Civic as well.

An update from the Consumer Report confirmed that Honda is also planning to upgrade the construction materials to aluminum and fiber. These two the most preferred materials which are exceptionally lightweight, easy to integrate into varied designs yet sturdy enough to provide stability for the car at its top speed. A pass-through center console will be used in the car. It will be powered by a 2.0 liter four-cylinder engine while the high line trim variant of the sedan will be equipped with a much better engine capacity.

Additional versions like Android Auto and Apple Car Play are expected to be found in all variants of the cars, enabling the drivers to easily control the console besides allowing them to enjoy the best of entertainment on the go. We have also had the opportunity to look at some of the spy shots of the 2016 Honda Civic. It confirmed that the vehicle is not going to undergo any major changes before its launch, but it’s the subtle design elements borrowed from the Si that’s going to make a huge difference when it gets launched.

2016 BMW M2, 2016 Lexus GS F and 2018 Honda Civic Type R: In Pictures

Car enthusiasts know the pleasure of browsing through some of the best pictures of vehicles that are on the road and yet to get launched.

This week, we bring you the best pictures of the most popular car models – 2016 BMW M2, 2016 Lexus GS F, 2018 Honda Civic Type R and many more.

The automobile community is witnessing a change like never before due to hybrid cars and all electric vehicles. However, traditional gasoline cars continue to be the most preferred choice among the buyers. In order to appease their requirement, the 2016 BMW M2 finally landed in dealerships and even though it is a late arrival, it was worth the wait. The car uses manual transmission with dual clutch box and houses a powerful turbocharged engine on the inside. The rear wheel drive is awesome and on the whole, it’s a much better choice than the M4.

The 2016 Lexus GS F is a worthy competitor from an unusual source. While Lexus has been making luxury vehicles for a while now, they have never had direct contention with the car makers of the world. The GS F with its 467 horsepower and a mammoth V8 engine could probably change this permanently. It has one of the best chassis tuned for optimal drivability and looks outlandishly stylish on the road. Take a look at the picture and you will easily know what we are talking about here.

While it has time before its official launch, the 2018 Honda Civic Type R is already out on the road and test drive is on. The car is scheduled for launch in the United States and is more of a prototype than a fully developed car at the moment. The spy photos don’t reveal much of the vehicle because it is fully camouflaged, but the shape of the car looks like it is mounted on the body of the 10th generation hatchback.

If you have had the chance to look at the Ferrari F12 tdf, it may be really tough to stop drooling over its uncompromised beauty. The car has 770 horsepower making it a beast on any track you pit in and the tdf edition is specially designed to honor the success that Ferrari experienced in their Tour de France car race. There are some more vehicles coming up; but for now, explore the images to enjoy the luxurious finish of these cars.

Acura ILX Sales Expected to Remain Undeterred Despite 2016 Honda Civic Revamp

Earlier, it was claimed that the 2016 Honda Civic has all the possible features to beat and affect the sales of 2016 Acura ILX sales. A similar claim has been made randomly by industry watchers who opined the Accord Touring may beat the Acura TLX.  

While it may sound credible at one point, in reality, statistics clarify that the customers who love the Acura have hardly moved to a Honda car or truck. They are not only fond of the brand, but are so used to its features that they never prefer to move away from their comfort zone. In the direct comparison tests, it was evident that the Honda Civic from 2015 was a much better model, because it offered great performance on-road, had more room for the passengers and has multiple safety features, which ensured a ride like never before. However, we have other points to support why the Acura ILX is different.

In order to stay ahead of the competition, a brand new compact Acura ILX is all set to be revealed in 2016. The 2017 Acura will bring multiple new features included performance upgrades and safety standards to the table so that it could distinguish itself from a Civic or an Accord. Besides, the manufacturer has also expressed their desire to launch a 2.0 liter turbo version of the sedan in the near future so as to cater to their loyal customers.

A performance variant of the car based on the Civic Si is also being considered. If the performance coupe version is coming, it will most probably sport an automatic transmission system and not manual gears because drivers who have had an Acura for a long time are more used to the former than the latter. The next gen Acura ILX will sport powerful eight speed automatic transmission system.

The base price of the Acura ranges between $27,900 and $34,890. While the pricing is almost similar to the models offered by other manufacturers like Audi and BMW, it continues to amass support from the buyers unlike any other model. The sales volume is credited to its performance, fuel efficiency and comfort, which usually is a hit or miss with the other models, but not with Acura. The models have been consistent throughout history even though it never underwent any drastic design changes in the recent past.

With such a strong foundation and fan following, we can confidently claim that the 2016 Honda Civic may have little impact on the Acura ILX sales trend.

2016 Honda Civic – Five New Colors Available for the Exterior

After four years, the Japanese car maker Honda has finally revealed the 10th generation of its C-segment popular vehicle. The 2016 Honda Civic was announced just weeks ago and we are not getting some of the details about the popular hatchback.

For starters, we now finally have the full palette of colors for the exterior and the interior. And while the interior color choices are somewhat boring and predictable, the exterior brings more fun.

For the exterior of the 2016 Civic, Honda is offering nine paint colors, including five new. The carryovers are Taffeta White (which is limited only for the basic 2.0-liter model), Crystal Black Pearl, White Orchid Pearl and Modern Steel Metallic. All of these four colors are carryovers from the previous Civic sedan. Another carryover is the Rallye Red paint color for the exterior, which was previously seen on the two-door coupe version of the Civic.

As for the new additions to the color palette, we have the Aegean Blue Metallic that Honda borrowed from the Fit, as well as the Lunar Silver Metallic that was previously seen on the Honda Accord. The 2016 Honda Civic will also be available in Burgundy Night Pearl and Cosmic Blue Metallic. Aside from the Taffeta White, all other colors will be available for every trim of the 2016 Civic.

The exterior colors can be paired with an appropriate interior color, giving you lots of options to choose from. Interior colors of the 2016 Civic include black, ivory and gray.

The 2016 Honda Civic is the 10th generation of one of the most popular vehicles in the US and the world. And color options are not the only “new” aspect of the Civic. The Japanese car maker has also remade the design of the popular hatchback. Some of the design changes include addition of LED lights for the headlights, new chrome grille on the front, boomerang style taillights, as well as fastback style profile. All in all, the 2016 Honda Civic looks sportier and more dynamic than the previous, boring ninth generation.

Another innovation has been done in the engine section. The basic engine option is the 2.0-liter engine with four cylinders. However, Honda will also offer a new and innovative 1.5-liter gasoline engine with turbocharging.

Honda Civic in its New Avatar to be Unleashed across Europe in Early 2017: Acura NSX in 2016

The new Honda Civic in its new avatar will be unleashed across Europe in early 2017. The Japanese automotive giant aims to leverage on its new Civic hatchback version to raise its annual sales in Europe to 200, 000 units.

Additionally, Honda confirmed that it will launch the Acura NSX hybrid supercar in 2016.

The new 2017 model of the Honda Civic will be manufactured exclusively at its production plant in the UK. For this express purpose, Honda has invested €270 million in new processes and technologies taking the total investment on the UK site to €3 billion from 1985. That the new 5-door Honda Civic will be manufactured at the UK production plant is part of Honda’s strategy to make the UK factory a global production hub.

The Japanese car maker unveiled the 10th generation Honda Civic sedan in the US; the hatchback is expected to be imported from the UK once the production starts. Meanwhile, in the US, the Honda Civic sedan will feature a revamped 1.5L direct injected turbocharged 4-cylinder engine coupled to a CVT with an estimated output of 173 hp. Another option for the US Honda Civic sedan is a 2L iVTEC 4-cylinder engine delivering an output of 159 hp.

The Acura NSX hybrid concept car transition from concept to production is one of the longest periods seen in the automotive history. The primary reason for the delay is an alteration in the layout of the engine, which happened halfway through the development process. While initially, Honda came out with naturally aspirated V6 engine, the automotive engineers chose a turbocharged engine later.

This change resulted in constructing a V6 engine (turbocharged) and shifting to longitudinal configuration, all of which apparently slowed down the development and production process. Now, it appears that Honda might be ready with the Acura NSX by spring 2016 though official announcements are yet to be made by the company.

While the auto manufacturer has not released any technical specs regarding the Acura NSX, the turbocharged V6 engines are estimated to deliver 550 horsepower. The engine would be coupled to a 9-speed auto transmission gearbox.

2016 Honda Civic is coming to Retail, Competes against Audi A3 and VW Golf

Honda has confirmed that the company will be rolling out their redesigned 2016 Civic to the dealers before the end of this year.

The sedan has been designed to give a tough competition to the likes of the Volkswagen Golf and the Audi A3.

The manufacturer did confirm that they are bringing the car to the consumers this fall and pre-orders may begin at least a month or so earlier. However, they didn’t confirm the official pricing of the vehicle which is expected to be only out by October. The Civic is one of the most popular models from Honda that has a strong patronage and is their best-selling sedan next to their Accord. With a compact size, affordable pricing and good fuel economy, it has always been a sedan that goes against models like the Toyota Corolla, Ford Focus and the Dodge Dart.

With a major overhaul, the 2016 Honda Civic is however designed to be much more sophisticated, boasts plenty of technological features and has the potential to compete against Europe’s top auto manufacturers.

In their official statement, Honda’s U.S. Vice President John Mendel said, “We are highly confident about the upcoming 10th generation Civic which is one of the most ambitious redesign we have ever done. With this launch, we aim to target a completely different strata of people and introduce our most popular model to people who may be interested in switching over to it, after going through what we have to offer”.

There are multiple variants to choose from in the Civic line-up. It’s not just a sedan but there is a coupe, the high performance, high speed Si models as well as the five door hatchback designed to accommodate an entire family. Above all, Honda is launching the first ever Civic Type-R to the U.S. market. If it succeeds, there might be more such launches in the near future.

The company has already revealed the Civic sedan this week and the other models in the line-up are expected to be showcased in the coming months. Two different engine variants will be used in the vehicles, including a 2.0 liter four cylinder engine with a six-speed manual transmission and a 1.5 liter turbocharged four cylinder engine.

The redesigned 2016 Honda Civic features a longer wheelbase with a wider body and has a fast back inspired tail. The manufacturer added that the body of the cars are at least 12 percent more aerodynamic and rigid than its previous models.

2016 Honda Civic – New Design, New Engine and Completely New Car

After a disappointing period from 2012 to 2016, Honda went back to the drawing board for the all new, 2016 Honda Civic. The previous version of the vehicle was criticized for lacking the “sizzle” that Honda has built a reputation on.

With that in mind, the company decided to completely redesign the Honda Civic and deliver a tenth generation of the popular sporty sedan.

Correcting the mistakes, Honda decided to use a new sheet metal for the exterior, giving the 2016 Civic an expressive profile.

Dimensions of the 2016 Civic don’t change much, as the sedan is two inches wider and has a 1.2 inches longer wheelbase. However, it is also lighter, as the sedan has shed 68 pounds. With the new dimensions, the sedan will offer more interior space and more legroom for the rear seats.

The new profile of the Civic features strong arches that go over the front wheels and a roofline that throws the current Civic out in the dust. The new roofline is almost fastback-like, giving the 2016 Civic that sporty, dynamic and aggressive look we grow accustomed to. Finishing the front is a new fascia with prominent chrome grille and LED headlights.

In the interior, Honda also has made several changes. Now with a new TFT display, Honda has clearly justified the promise they will bring much more technology and innovative thinking in the 2016 model. Aside from the TFT display, Honda leaves traditional gauges inside, but is finally getting rid of the multi-tiered dashboard that people hated in the previous version. Honda will play both sides and will allow both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto inside the Civic. The central touchscreen display is based on an Android OS, same as the new Pilot.

Under the hood, Honda is also making changes with bringing a new, 1.5-liter engine into the lineup. The 1.5 liter turbocharged engine features direct injection and is the first turbo engine by Honda for a US model. The engine will produce roughly 200hp in the highest trim. The second engine option is a 2.0-liter four cylinder engine that Honda says will produce the most power between base models. According to reports, the 2.0-liter engine might produce around 160hp for the base trimming model. All engines will be accompanied by either a manual or automatic gearbox.

Honda officials claim that the new 2016 Civic will be extremely fun to drive thanks to the changes in the interior and exterior, giving the car a sporty experience. However, we will have to wait and see whether the “most ambitious remake” of the Civic is actually worth the hype.

New Leaked 2016 Honda Civic Images Show Exterior Design Changes

Honda Civic and Accord are the most popular vehicles from the brand for many years now. The new model features some of the much needed changes that buyers have been looking forward for a long time now.

A person who is part of the CivicX community has managed to capture some close-up shots of the 2016 Honda Civic parked in the Ann Arbor region. The CivicX is one of the popular communities where everyone is a proud owner of Civic and love the model than any other variant from Honda. The people in the group are visibly excited by the fact that they have got the opportunity to look at their favorite car before it was officially unveiled to the world.

In terms of design, the 2016 Honda Civic is exceptionally similar to the Civic Coupe that the company showcased during the New York International Auto Show that was held earlier this year. The designers have added a lot of stylish features to the car including the curved, seamless tail lamps, an exhaust mounted in the middle of the body and the impressive accentuated lines that run along the sides.

Everything about the new Civic looks promising so far and if you have questions, you may have to wait a little longer. The official reveal is expected to take place in a day or so; while the company is also busy gearing up for their Civic Type-R launch this September. It is expected that the online event scheduled for September 16th will be the platform from which Honda will reveal their 10th gen sedan, a Coupe as well as the five door hatchback model in the Civic series.

The launch takes place at the same time when the Frankfurt Auto Show is underway in full swing. Honda is yet to talk about hybrids and electric cars, but almost every one of their competitors is busy showing concept cars. Tesla is the biggest player in the market at the moment and they have proven their mettle, whereas others, like Porsche, BMW, Audi, Chevrolet and Toyota are catching up.

Even though, a select group of customers show interest in opting for the fuel efficient, eco-friendly hybrid models, it may be years before people decide to ditch the hugely popular Civic series. Powered by gasoline engines, they are reliable, have the latest technology integrated into them and come from a brand that has strong patronage among the buyers around the globe.

2016 Honda Civic is Ready for US Launch on September 16

Since the introduction of the Civic in 1972 for the US market, the small car has been one of the top selling cars on the market. Now, in its tenth generation, the 2016 Honda Civic looks to take over the market once again.

The new Civic will be introduced on September 16 during a special event on YouTube. There are several changes and promises with the 2016 Civic, starting from the new look that should be sportier, more dynamic, aggressive and youthful. Additionally, the 2016 Honda Civic is the first car for the US market by Honda that uses a turbo engine.

The completely new 10th generation of the Civic Sedan will be revealed live on YouTube, directly from the Space office in Los Angeles. The event is scheduled for September 16 at 6:15pm. The 2016 Honda Civic will be the first car that will be revealed from the YouTube Space in LA. The livestream will feature special appearances from the design team working on the 2016 Civic, as well as a special performance by the music band Night Riots, an alternative rock band.

The current Honda Civic has been a top selling compact car in the US since its introduction in 2012, but the company believes it is time for a change in the design to appeal to the young and dynamic generation.
Honda promises an infusion of sporty details in the design for all the models in the range. And while we cannot say for certainty how the new small sedan will look, we can be sure that it will draw inspiration from the green concept that Honda revealed a few months ago.

The lineup of the 2016 Civic will include a standard sedan vehicle, as well as a coupe and five-door hatchback. Honda expects to add a Si sporty variant and the Type-R performance car to the lineup sometimes in the future, but not immediately.

We do not know the engine power of the 2016 Civic, but we do know that the car will feature a 6-speed manual gearbox for transmission. The standard equipment will also include backup camera, EBS braking, ABS, touchscreen for personal connectivity and electronic ride stability. Prospective buyers can add CVT transmission as an optional package for higher trims.

The bottom line is simple, the 2016 Civic will offer much more than the current models in the entry level four door sedan market. Standard equipment is enhanced and with added performance, utility and design, you have a great value car for a price in the range of $19,000.
