It's going to be prettier than the current model.
The Honda Civic is an exemplary machine. It's light on gas, spacious, reliable, and simply one of the best cars around. It's damn fast in Type R form too, but the one thing we don't like about it is the design of its bodywork. Fortunately, a leaked patent document confirmed that the new model will have a much more conventional look to it, although the finer details couldn't be seen on those images. Fortunately, we don't have much longer to wait, with Honda confirming that we'll see the new model's prototype on November 17. In the meantime, the company has released the below video as a teaser.
The reveal of the new Civic prototype will be a world-first, as this will be the first time that a live global debut of a vehicle occurs on a Twitch branded gaming channel. Honda Head2Head is the channel in question and the special episode will start at 17:00 Pacific Time with the actual reveal expected to begin at 18:45. The episode will also feature a performance by Grammy-nominated artist Cordae. But what about the car itself? Well, it seems that the render we saw last month was fairly accurate, which means that we'll no longer have any gripes with the way the Civic looks.
The stills we've captured from the above video allow us to examine some of the car's details a little more closely. We see a wheel design very similar to that of the lightweight BBS wheels on the Type R Limited Edition, as well as a molded trunk spoiler, dual exhaust exits on either side of a faux diffuser, LED running lights at either end of the car, and a new glasshouse with a flourish in the C-pillars that will likely become a styling accent on future Honda models too. We'll have to wait for the full reveal to judge the styling properly, but things are looking promising for America's best-selling car.
