SEMA is the show where anything can happen and modded Civics has been a staple for years and this year is no different. Honda partnered with three outside companies and had them produce their version of the new Civic, the manufacturer even came out with their own racing version.
Autoblog has the low down on all four models and firs up is a TJIN Edition yellow Civic coupe. This isn’t the first time TJIN has appeared on the SEMA scene as this tuner came out with a Civic SI a few years back. For 2016, they’ve given the coupe a Apollo Top One Auto Part lip spoiler along with Honda Factory Performance side skirts and rear bumper. BC Racing BR Series coilover suspension brings the body closer to those Rotiform OZT wheels paired with a set of Baer brakes. Of course, there’s the yellow paint that extends to the Katzkin leather and suede seats.
Another modded coupe came from MAD Industries and they gave the Civic a single center exhaust and some carbon fiber ground effects from Carbon 2 Carbon. It’s also sitting on Eibach Pro Kit springs with a set of Rotiform QLB wheels and Toyo T1R tires. Matching the blue exterior is some splashes of blue on the dashboard and blue stitching in the upholstery.
Meguiar's Civic X Concept went in a different direction and worked on a Civic sedan instead. Like the two coupes, it’s been lowered onto some SSR mesh wheels with a coilover suspension. The whole bonnet has been replaced with one made with carbon fiber and there are matching black accents on the side mirrors and door handles. The cabin is sporting red and black Alcantara and an upgraded sound system. Aside from exterior changes they’ve also made modifications to the engine bay, but specifics have not been released yet and all AutoBlog saw was a front-mounted intercooler.
As for Honda, they revealed a race ready Civic hatchback that will debut at the 25 Hours of Thunderhill in December this year. Bringing it up to code is an FIA-certified roll cage and a huge wing. Changes have also been made to the transmission and engine, but this information has not been released yet.
Rounding out the group is a Civic hatchback decked out in Honda Factory Performance accessories that the average owner can purchase including ground effects, rear wing, brake rotors, 19-inch wheels, and more.
