Months after showing the concept for the next-generation Civic, Honda now gives us a glimpse at the production model that will be unveiled later this year by showing – one image.
They’re only teasing us with a front-quarter shot. It’s frustrating, but the good news is this production model isn’t too far off from the concept that was released earlier. There were no changes done on the body, it’s still this low and long sedan with the body panels extending to the front grille, and a honeycomb intake below it.
What’s different for this production Civic are the fog lights and new wheels. Instead of the all-black 10-spoke we saw from the concept last November, the production Civic has two-tone rims that further emphasizes its executive appeal.
Honda took a 180-degree turn with the 11th-gen Civic’s aesthetics, departing from the loud and sporty design of the current model and going for a timeless look and ‘human-centered’ touches like the Civics of the past. In this real world backdrop, I must say it worked greatly in elevating the appeal of their iconic sedan.
More information will be released later this month once they start with their online Honda Civic Tour. As for the release, it’s slated to be unveiled in the third quarter of the year, but it remains to be seen when it will arrive in our region and in our country.
