2016 Honda Civic 2 Door Coupe
Leaked photos from an apparent Honda patent filing have revealed what the eventual production version of the 2016 Honda Civic Sedan and Coupe. Honda hasn't come out to officially say that these are indeed from their patent filing, but they look pretty real so let's assume that they are.
The patent renderings show us that the production Civic will have its styling toned a bit, but will still stay pretty true to the styling that the concept presented. The toned down styling can be seen in the removal of the deep front and rear air dams, the rear spoiler, the oversized wheels and the tiny side mirrors. Another area where the toned down styling can be seen is the switch from the concept's all LED headlights to something a bit more conventional.
On the bright side, the very popular tail lights have been kept for the production version. On the coupe version the tail lights span the entire rear end of the vehicle, while the sedan version ditches the light bar going across the trunk.
The sedan and coupe version of the 2016 Civic have the same front end. It is at the rear 2/3s of the vehicle that changes are made to adapt to the expectations of the particular body type. More sporty for the coupe, and more practical for the sedan.
Though there are no patent renders here of it, the patent filing also reveals that a 5-door hatchback is planned.
