Honda‘s new 2016 Civic sedan is the latest in a series of future models to be captured out in the streets naked before its debut.
Our first impression is that it’s one of the most interesting, perhaps even radical-looking, Civic sedans we’ve seen in years, adopting a striking sloped roofline and more dramatic designs for the front and rear ends – even if they’re slightly overdone.
The styling of the new Civic series was previewed by the lime-green Civic Coupe Concept at this year’s New York Auto Show in April, but the styling seems to work better here on the sedan body, especially without all the tuning references from the study.
Honda plans to debut the 10th generation of the Civic “on Youtube”, according to a company release, on September 16, before it brings it to the Los Angeles Auto Show in late November.
The sedan model viewed here will be followed by a Coupe body and the first-ever five-door hatchback for the U.S. market, together with a Type-R flagship wearing the same 2.0-liter turbocharged engine as the Euro model (read our first drive here) with around 300 horsepower.
