Honda previews tenth-gen Civic with sporty concept

At the 2015 New York Auto Show Honda will give a glimpse of the next-gen Civic with a near production concept that showcase a sporty, athletic look.


The tenth generation Civic – America’s most popular small car – will be available in Sedan, Coupe, and 5-door Hatchback body types and will feature VTEC® Turbo engines – a first for the US market.

The model line-up will also include a new Civic Type-R as the performance flagship.

The new Civic has a longer wheelbase and lower, wider stance, with a longer hood, a shorter front overhang, a more set-back greenhouse and a shorter rear deck, which results in 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. Its sporty and expressive face is highlighted by bright new LED headlights flanking the “Flying H” Honda grille which is supported by deeply sculpted lower air intakes.

“Charismatic, connected and athletic, our goal was to create a design that is emotional and sporty yet with a sense of timelessness and simplicity,” said Guy Melville-Brown, Chief Exterior designer of the Civic concept, Honda R&D Americas, Inc.

“In this we set out to create a vehicle that goes beyond the superficial and embraces the very philosophy of what a true Civic should be; it’s a real game changer.”

The new Civic marks the first time that global development of both the sedan and coupe models is being led by a North American R&D team, with design led by a team from Honda’s Los Angeles design studio and development centered in the company’s Raymond, Ohio vehicle development center.
