People will just gripe about the lack of a volume knob, which i find redundant since it has steering wheel controls. Hope they added a mute button to the wheel controls tho...Can't see too much about the interior from these pictures, but I do like what I see from the centre screen. It looks quite simple, and I think that is a good thing.
That touch screen does look HUGE. How is that the 7 inch touchscreen? Maybe honda has a bigger one for even higher trims? OR maybe they just designed the dash to look that way with the touchscreen in place, while the usable area stayed at the same 7 inch. I can't see the civic having a larger available touchscreen than the Pilot or Accord.
Glad that i don't like leather, though i really like the 2 tone look (and hoping the cloth seats have some of those colored inserts we've seen on the sedan and this car) Also glad i couldn't care less about having the sensing tech. EX 1.5T with the CVT for me!
It's logical to assume that Honda would put their newly introduced 7'' screen for the Accord on the Civic, but judging from the leaked picture its just not possible. A 7'' screen has a width of 6.05'' and a height of 3.4'' according to a 16:9 aspect ratio. The dimensions of the screen within the bezel from the leaked photo has a width of 6'' and height that must be at least 6''. This wont fit into any standard aspect ratio that I know of. I went a bit overboard with the Tesla screen analogy, but the screen will look very similar to something like the one in this video, just not as tall.If you look at the closest shot of the screen you can see that it isn't all screen.... the current unit has a black surround which on the driver side contains the haptic touch buttons (volume, home, apps) and is about 2-3 inches wide. The screen does not take up the entirety of the unit, but instead floats inside the black boarder so it's not actually as large as it appears. Its definitely the 7 inch screen. Honda JUST got this unit into the Pilot and Accord... no reason to replace it already.
I've reconsidered and I think you're right. Although, the climate control will be part of the display under the 7'' display. Something like the sketch that I attached.Looking at photos on the steering wheel it looks like the volume button is also a scroll button? Seems odd in the design and to me looks almost like a touch scroll button.
I also see that there is adaptive cruise control on the wheel too which is a great feature and I cannot wait to own a vehicle with that. Glad to see that button!
Screen does not look unusually big to me, looking at other pictures from earlier with the non touchscreen version you can see how small that area on the dash is. With bezels a 7" screen looks about right to my eye.
I agree, if honda is throwing an all new larger screen in the upper trims it's going to incorporate the climate control along the lower portion, which means the actual infotainment area won't change much in size from the current 7" setup most likely. They probably did this instead of doing a two area setup like the HRV has for it's climate control, save a little on cost maybe.I've reconsidered and I think you're right. Although, the climate control will be part of the display under the 7'' display. Something like the sketch that I attached.
