Honda gave a first look at the new Civic at the auto show in New York, which is to be launched in the USA in the fall. With a longer wheelbase, crouched posture and an aggressive modeled front, the near-series Civic study clearly sets itself apart from the competition in the compact class.
According to Honda, the tenth generation of the Civic should become one of the most efficient and sporty cars in the compact class thanks to a new platform and engines, including a 1,5-liter turbo four-cylinder. While it will debut in the USA in the fall, it will take some time before the compact comes to Germany. The first step is to launch the current version of the current Civic in the sports version: The Civic Type R comes to dealers in the summer at a price of 34.000 euros.
