Our spies have caught on camera the next generation Honda Civic Coupe and thankfully they were able to capture the interior cabin as well.
Honda surprised everyone at this year’s New York Auto Show where they unveiled a stunning Civic concept previewing the tenth generation set to go on sale this fall in United States. The concept took the shape of a coupe and today we get to see how the design will morph to the production car. Although the prototype was wearing an extensive amount of camouflage, it’s easy to notice the car will look significantly different and will adopt a sleeker shape.
Courtesy of some leaked patent designs, we already have a clue regarding the car’s exterior appearance and in this latest batch of spy shots we also get to see the interior cabin with a dashboard that boasts a more conventional layout. This particular prototype had a two-tone upholstery and was most likely a higher specification model judging by that generously-sized touchscreen display. Other noticeable features include an electric parking brake, sliding armrest, three-spoke steering multi-function steering wheel along with metallic accents and some large buttons below the infotainment system.
The tenth generation Civic will officially premiere on September 16, but it’s not known at this point whether Honda will show the coupe as well or they will just unveil the sedan. We do know for sure the hybrid and CNG versions have been axed as Honda believes the newly developed 1.5-liter turbocharged gasoline engine will be efficient enough and will work with a short-shift six-speed manual gearbox and an optional CVT.
