In all her official glory. Civic Nation is back!

As we knew, Civics in regular trim will make use of two all-new four-cylinder engines, a 2.0-liter and a 1.5-liter turbo. The turbo can be found in EX-T, EX-L and Touring trims. Leaving the 2.0 doing its duty solely in the LX.

That long fastback shape contributed a 12% gain in aerodynamic efficiency which Honda says should be good for 40 MPG on the highway.

For the Starbucks chicane the Civic brings front strut suspension and multi-link out back. The body is said to be 25 percent stiffer, lighter too. Both front and rear stabilizer bars have grown, while 4-wheel disc brakes and ghetto but great brake-controlled torque vectoring all come standard.

Once again Honda works their magic inside, the 10th gen Civic gaining 3.7 cubic inches of passenger space, tangibly a 2 inch gain in rear leg room. You can heat their bums too with optional heated rear seats. Cargo capacity is also up 2.6 cubic inches.

For the gizmo driven Apple CarPlay or Android Auto are available on a 7 inch Hi Def touchscreen. Honda Sensing features crash avoidance lane departure and adaptive cruise allowing you to text and drive or at least dunk your donuts.

Thats all we have for now, Honda will release more details closer to the 10th gen sedan hitting dealers this fall. As for the good stuff, just be patient the Coupe, Si, Type R and hatch will be with us shortly.

Stay tuned sports fans.

1 inch lower
2 inches wider
Digital gauge cluster
158hp 2.0L base engine
173hp 1.5T upgrade engine


All the right things :D
It looks spectacular. The silver looks so much better than the dark gray of the car that was seen a couple days ago in MI.

Wow, that's way more HP from the turbo than I was expecting. I bet its pretty fun with a manual, plus it more than likely takes regular gas. Might get the EX coupe instead of the Si.

With the new turbo and lighter weight, this civic is going to be nearly as fast as the base accord models which i believe do 0-60 in about 7.4 seconds. That's lightyears better than the current 8.7 0-60 of the civic. My guess would be the 2.0L doing 0-60 in about 8 seconds flat and the turbo at about 7.7 which are both pretty much class leading. Now, lets hope they got the handling class leading too. top leaders pull .87-.88 on skidpad tests. Granted, handling is more about feel than actual numbers.

If the Sedan is going on sale this fall the build page should be up soon. It would be nice to have Honda's sensing features as standard.

Yea but there's big money in safety. Stoke shoppers into a frenzy that they're likely to die when they drive because they're not good at it, turn around and sell them a couple grand of keep me safe technology...

I'm curious about brake vectoring. Brake based systems are typically inferior...but its honda so I won'tdoubt it just yet...

Is anyone else wondering why the Civic didn't just debut in Frankfurt? I would get it more if they did the solo reveal when there wasn't an auto show going on at the same time. Doing it during Frankfurt somewhere else just makes me think that they might be getting less attention because so many resources are in Frankfurt right now.

To me it seems they didn't see frankfurt as the type of show that would be appropriate for the Civic, since it seem to be more reserved for higher end vehicles for the most part.

Plus this could be a way to help them stand out even more.

LOL you must be kidding right?

Honda DOMINATED the news cycle this morning, the only thing anyone had to write about was the new CIVIC. They were brilliant frankfurt debuts all happened on the 15th, by the time last night rolled around most frankfurt coverage was already exhausted. The regular civic sedan would of got lost among all the porn... besides, most publications have more then one staff writer ;)

It'll be interesting to see what honda decides to do with the coupe debut in a month or two. I know there are some auto shows coming up that would be in line with the coupe debut, or if honda will do another live streaming event for it.

I could definitely see the Si getting a huge live event, same for the Type R. So all lights are on them and nobody else.

Honda wasn't kidding when they said this would be the best Civic yet. The sedan looks great! I just hope the Coupe doesn't disappoint.

do you think the base 2.0L is the same engine in the type R? (ofcourse its not 100% the same, proabably different head / same block)

When is SEMA? I assume the base coupe will debut before that if the Si variants use the SEMA show.
SEMA November 3-6. LA show doesn't go until November 20.

I'm wondering if they might actually debut the Si and Coupe at the same time... especially if Si will be top trim like touring is to the sedan...

Well they'll still offer an Si Sedan... and we don't know if there won't be a touring coupe. But yea, i could see them showing them both at the same time.

No ones really sure if its a K20 or an R20 in there... The CTR uses a Turbo K20... from what I've read the R20 is the cheaper engine to build and its oversquare which is supposed to be better for fuel econ...

yea I know, but I'm thinking touring will still be the top trim in terms of cost for the sedan... I'm assuming the Si won't be bogged with quite so many wizard gizmos...
