Detroit: Honda shows off 2012 Civic concepts

Honda debuted the Civic Si concept coupe and Civic concept sedan at the North American International Auto Show, providing the first official preview of the upcoming ninth-generation 2012 Civic.

The exterior styling of both Civic concept models is very close to the actual production models that will follow within the next couple of months. The profile of the new Civic is quite similar to the existing version and I thought that the rear lamp combination of the sedan looks like the previous generation Camry. The coupe model features a more aggressive character thanks to the tapered rear roofline, more angular front fascia and several unique parts including a rear air diffuser and a centrally mounted exhaust outlet. Both concepts are fitted with 19-inch machined alloy wheels.

"The Civic is known for providing a balance of 'just-right' packaging, fun-to-drive character and outstanding fuel economy, at a price that even first-time buyers can afford," said John Mendel, executive vice president of sales for American Honda. "The redesigned Civic builds on this legacy and promises to be the best Civic yet."

Honda didnít reveal much about the production version but mentioned that the 2012 Civic will include sporty "Si" performance versions, as well as hybrid and natural-gas variants. The company added that the new Civic hybrid will be the first production Honda hybrid to feature lithium ion battery cell.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
