New Honda Civic: A close look

Recommended Posts

The new 11th-gen Honda Civic has been revealed for the North American market. It sits on an updated platform and has a wheelbase length that’s increased by 36mm. As for the styling, it's actually quite similar to the design of the concept that made its debut last year. 

The low-set dashboard features a rather clean and uncluttered look with a unique honey-comb pattern strip – which also hides the air-con vents – separating the upper and lower section. Honda says that the strip helps segregate the air-con and infotainment controls as well as adding to the uncluttered look of the dashboard. Depending on the model, the Civic is equipped with either an analogue instrument cluster with a 7.0-inch MID or a configurable 10.2-inch LCD screen.

Honda says that the chassis for the Civic is now more rigid than its predecessor’s, with the rear track also widened with a view on improving stability. Other changes under the skin include updates to the suspension to improve ride quality and handling characteristics, a re-tuned steering and the use of low rolling resistance wheel bearings in a bid to improve fuel economy.
