New Civic caught naked

By SYF77 on 13 Oct 2010

From the video above, it appears that the 2012 Honda Civic is ready for unveiling at any time soon.

Car magazine's Middle East outpost caught the latest version of the popular 4 door sedan undergoing desert testing, basically devoid of camouflage. The design of the new model doesn’t seem radically different from the existing one. Rather, it looks like an extensive facelift than a full redesign. As you can see in the spy video, the front and rear fascias are updated. A new grille and bumper appear up front. At the back, all-new taillamps will be the most distinguishing visual element on the 2012 car. The overall profile of the new sedan is clearly a carryover, however.

Likewise, the interior has been mildly tweaked with a new steering wheel and some updated trim panels, but it's basically window dressing over the passenger cabin recent Civic owners are familiar with. The bi-level instrumentation is still there with the radio, HVAC controls and air vents at similar locations as the current car. I prefer the cockpit of the current car as the layout looks more sleek and less bulky.

The powertrain changes is still unknown at the moment.

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.
