What I mean is improvements from the 9th to the 10th. From what I'v read around the 9th gen Civic had several detracting factors that led to the premature redesign...

  • Subpar interior materials
  • Ride and handling (soft?)
  • Vents
  • Center Stack Layout
Figure we can have one thread to hear from 9th gen owners on improvements they would like to see as well as outside perceptions from perspective 10th gen owners coming from off brand or off model...

I own a 13 LX coupe. Here is my wishlist for the 10th gen LX/EX models:
-fatter rear sway bar
- more power (my car is so slow!)
- more clutch and steering "feel". Doubt this will happen. Everything is electronic now.
- Lighter. Also doubtful due to current safety regs
- A hatchback Civic. Hey a guy can dream.

projector HID headlights
better upper dash layout (better use of area where fuel & mpg gauges are)
rotary volume dial for the touchscreen radio
mute button on steering wheel
upgraded Bluetooth system - the system in my '14 is far below what i had in my '11 sonata
HD radio across the board - does sound so much better
a bit more power (it's still a civic, considered a mpg leader in the segment)
homelink
led where ever possible (less load on engine and helps improve economy)
hatchback model
orange fire pearl available on more than the Si model (i just love that color)

Here is the 9th generation civic centre stack. I have to agree that it isn't the nicest thing that I have ever seen. So much black plastic and the lower half of it just looks incredibly poorly designed in both look and function.

My biggest issue is the dash, i don't like how it looks at all.
The need to get rid of the double dash look along with the driver focused look.

I'll agree with fear24 in that I would like to see projector HIDs for the 10th generation Civic. Even the Odyssey gets them so why not the Civic for once? I'll also be the catalyst for the ensuing hatestorm by mentioning rev hang. I think I'm the only one who never noticed it pre-FlashPro, but literally billions of Civic owners have complained about it.
