NY Show 2015 Highlights: Honda Civic Concept
There’s a surprise from Honda. Without preview or just a teaser, the Japanese brand introduced Civic Concept. So, this is a concept car that previews the 10th generation of Civic that will be released this fall in USA. Looking at the green concept car, it might be the most dynamic and sporty Civic ever. Up front, the designers put aggressive ‘face’ accompanied by LED headlights, LED Daytime Running Lights, and black honeycomb grille. At the rear, we can see unique LED taillights that becomes a part (likely, it won’t be featured in production version). There are also rear spoiler, rear diffuser, and a single big exhaust that make the coupe more dynamic.
According to Honda, the production model will be offered with 1.5 liter VTEC plus Turbo that is mated to 6-speed manual transmission or a CVT. That’s a good news for the fans. And I’ve got another exciting news that the bodystyles of next generation Civic are not only sedan and coupe, but also 5-door hatchback! Moreover, American Honda said that they planned to release Si Coupe and Type-R Hatchback. “The New Civic will be, flat out, the most dynamic, the most technologically advanced, the most refined and stylish Civic we’ve ever made. In every way, this will be an epic Civic,” said John Mendel, Executive Vice President of American Honda. I can’t wait to see the latest Civic, then.
