Next-gen Honda Civic Debuts As A Prototype
A few weeks back some patent images unveiled the design of the 11th gen Civic. Now, the carmaker has officially unveiled the new-gen sedan as a prototype ahead of its debut in 2021.
The Civic prototype looks almost identical to what we have seen in the patent images. The 11th-gen Civic is a big departure from its predecessor as far as design is concerned. While the 10th-gen Civic looks aggressive with sporty and sharp lines and coupe-like silhouette, the new Civic looks more sedate and more conventional. Upfront, it gets sleek new headlamps flanking slim grille. The bumper is also new featuring a large central air dam flanked by C-shaped air vents.
The side profile looks clean with a shoulder line running across the length of the sedan. Coming to the back, it features wrap-around tail lamps, integrated rear spoiler and a dual exhaust setup.
Honda has not yet revealed the interior of the sedan but has revealed a sketch of the interior. The cabin layout looks clean with connected AC vents running across the entire width of the dashboard. It also gets a free-standing infotainment screen sitting at the top of the central console which features just three dials as far as buttons are concerned.
The 11th gen Honda Civic is likely to make its global debut by early 2021 and it is expected to go on sale by mid-2021. Since the Civic is not doing particularly well in the Indian market, Honda won’t be in a hurry bring the new-gen sedan to India. So, don’t expect the new Civic to land in India before 2022 if it ever goes on sale here. Currently, the Civic is priced from Rs 17.94 lakh to Rs 22.35 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). It is available with both and diesel engine options and it rival likes of Hyundai Elantra and Skoda Octavia.
