But is it really any better than before?
When the redesigned Honda Civic debuted for 2012, it was nothing short of a disaster. The car didn’t even come close to meeting expectations in numerous ways. So a significant refresh was ordered and the 2013 Civic was a major improvement. Honda has yet again updated the Civic, this time focusing solely on the Coupe and Si Coupe. Debuting at SEMA in Las Vegas, the 2014 Civic Coupe features a restyled front end with a new grille, headlights, bumper, hood and fenders.
Out back the taillights lenses and rear bumper were restyled. There are also new side mirrors and wheel designs. The performance oriented Civic Si Coupe was also treated to an unexpected refresh with more aggressive styling. It’s impossible not to notice the overall more aggressive styling tone with the lowered front bumper, larger decklid spoiler, and new rear bumper with a diffuser. Those 18" wheels are also new along with larger fog lamps. We still think the overall look is a bit polarizing. Fortunately, the Si receives an extra four horsepower, bringing the total to 205. Honda says more Civic and Civic Si details will come in a few weeks at LA.
