The Honda Civic moniker has been through the ups and downs in its many faces—from ordinary sedan, coupe, hatchback and futuristic-looking vehicle way back 2006. Surmise to say, the drama of this moniker has been healthy enough to sustain its position in automobile commerce. Now on its 10th generation release, what can we really expect?
The handsome 3D tonal –gray made the latest Civic particularly handsome, enough to declare ‘grey’ as one of the sexiest tones this year. The front fascia is somewhat a reminiscent of Robocop with its squinted LED headlamp connected to the upper center of the bumper bearing the Honda emblem. It will be offered 5 trims: sedan, coupe, 5-door hatchback, Si, and Type R.
You have to watch out for its Honda Sensing safety package which includes Honda Lane Watch, Lane Departure Warning, Multi-Angle Rearview Camera, Forward Collision Warning and Adaptive Cruise Control. It also comes with 7.0-inch touchscreen dashboard display with an integration of Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
With this offer, we can only think of one thing: Honda has set Civic to dominate the mass with the 2016 model’s fine features and affordable price. As for the US Honda enthusiasts, you can rejoice as Civic will hit the shores one trim at a time starting at fall with the sedan, winter with the coupe, and to be followed by the hatchback and two others by early 2016.
