Honda announced some major changes for the current Civic on Paris Motor Show occasion. The compact car will benefit from subtle exterior changes, applied also to the Civic Tourer version.
The list of redesigned accessories start with headlamps, that have integrated daytime running lights, and with a new sleek front bumper. The rear bumper is also new as the side skirts, the rear spoiler finished in black, and the LED rear combination lamps.
Inside the cabin, Honda introduces new seat fabrics and stitching on the headrests, new door trims with chrome door handles and a control panel finished in a metallic black.
Along with this aesthetic changes, Honda offers Connect in-car audio and information system, that includes AM/FM, DAB and Internet Radio, Bluetooth connectivity, internet browsing, satellite navigation and rear-view parking camera. All the functions use a 7-inch display mounted on the dashboard, on which clients will find Android 4.0.4 and functions that swipe and pinch as any other smartphone.
The Honda Civic safety systems found inside will also include the Honda City Brake Active (CTBA) system as standard. Specifically designed to help avoid or mitigate low speed accidents, the system uses radar technology to scan the road ahead, automatically applying the brakes if an imminent risk of collision is detected. The system is engineered to operate at speeds below 30 km/h (18 mph).
