Honda unveiled the new Civic Concept during this year New York Auto Show. The concept anticipates the 10th generation of the compact car, ready to be launched in the US.
The new Civic lineup will include Civic Sedan, Coupe and Si models along with the return of the Civic hatchback, followed by the launch of a new Civic Type-R as the performance flagship of the Civic lineup. The new Civic also will be the first U.S. model to apply new VTEC Turbo engines from the company’s Earth Dreams Technology powertrain series.
The Civic Concept provides a longer wheelbase and lower, wider stance, a longer hood, a shorter front overhang, a more set-back greenhouse and a shorter rear deck. Its sporty and expressive face is highlighted by bright new LED headlights flanking the "Flying H" Honda grille which is supported by deeply sculpted lower air intakes.

The concept is also the benchmark for Honda Sensing advanced safety technologies, including Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Warning, Multi-Angle Rearview Camera, Adaptive Cruise Control and Honda LaneWatch, along with Honda’s next-generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure.
