American Honda's rollout of the Civic is already in full swing, you may not be able to get your hands on one yet, but some already have. TorqueNews teases us from one of AHMs national press events.
We know you want all the dirtiest details available, but drive impressions, final specs and MSRPs are strictly embargoed until October 19th. Luckily for us TN plays a little fast and loose with the embargo.
First up on the pricing front, a base 2016 Civic Sedan is within $200 of the 2015 Civic EX sedan, Hondas aim to be class leaders also applies to value and content it would seem.
Some of you will be pleased to hear Honda is now bringing power seats to the top trimmed Civics.
They also claim that the 2016 Sedans are using suspension and engine components derived from the Type R, there wheres and hows are conspicuously missing.
A dance is done around drive impressions, but there's enough to whet your appetite. For example, "Take our word for it, seasoned Civic fans and Civic newbies alike will be giddy when experiencing the new found power and drive characteristics of Honda's next best seller."And even more encouraging, "the drive performance, standard and optional safety features, epic! Handing a collective ‘high five’ to Honda design and engineering."
At this point its difficult to figure out where Honda PR Machine ends and the journalists pen begins, but its not often that a C-segment sedan is anointed the "wake up call for the automotive industry."
Press impressions and pricing will be available October 19th and cars should be at dealers by the 26th. What do you think about the ~ $21K MSRP?
