The all-new eleventh-generation Honda Civic has taken shape, albeit in concept form. Revealed today via live streaming on Twitch, the new Civic debuts a striking new colour called Solar Flare Pearl and showcases a fresh, sporty and upmarket new look.
While the new Civic is a prototype for now, Honda was quick point out that the production car – which is due to arrive in early 2021 – will look almost the same as the concept. The all-new 2021 Honda Civic line-up will initially launch with the sedan, followed by the hatch and later the high performance Type R variant.
With the current 10th-generation Civic bought by mostly young drivers, the new 11th-generation Civic will build on that sporty appeal, promising a fun-to-drive new chassis, teamed with more powerful and fuel-efficient powertrains. There will also be multiple new Civic-first features and technologies, and further advances in active and passive safety features and performance.
The all-new Civic will get a dramatic interior makeover as it reimagines the clean and uncluttered lines of earlier generations of Civic, and advances well-known Civic values of excellent ergonomics and visibility, all while incorporating modern design elements and technology.
The 11th-generation Civic will also introduce a fully digital instrumentation cluster and a new 9-inch full-HD infotainment touchscreen display mounted atop the low-set instrument panel.
While Honda has remained tight lipped on powertrain details, we can expect the new range to include a turbo petrol model and a petrol-electric hybrid variant.
