The 10th Generation Honda Civic Revealed at the New York Auto Show

Honda has quite a bit of positive buzz around it right now. A new partnership in Formula 1, the upcoming release of the highly anticipated Honda HR-V, and now something new. You wouldn’t expect the 10th generation of the Honda Civic to make waves at an auto show that features a plethora of exotic Lamborghini and Koenigsegg supercars, but Honda has made it happen.

Honda dramatically unveiled the new Civic concept on a rotating platform in  striking green color. The coupe has great lines and, if the production model stays true to the concept as Honda’s have for the past few years at least, this will be one of the best looking generations of the Civic. The coupe has a longer look than the previous generation and resembles a smaller version of the current generation of the Accord coupe moreso than a Civic. The coupe has more of a sports car look than any previous Civic with aggressive lines on a low chassis. The front fascia of the Civic has a meaner look than any of the previous happy-go-lucky designs and the look has been compared to everything from Porsches to Nissan Z’s.


Honda’s New Turbocharged Engines

Under the hood is one of the first examples we’ve seen of Honda’s  new line of turbocharged engines. The Civic coupe is packing a turbocharged 1.5L 4-cylinder VTEC engine. Honda did not disclose how much horsepower it produces but we can assume it is less than the other turbo Honda engine we’ve seen in the new Type-R, which produces 306 horsepower. The new Civic is designed for everyday efficient and fun driving but we’re sure the new Civic Si will be no slouch. Without a doubt, all of the Civics in the new generation will maintain the line’s fun to drive engineering.



Honda Adds a Civic Hatchback to the Mix

In addition to the coupe seen here, Honda has promised the U.S. market a new iteration of the popular Civic sedan as well as a 5-door hatchback version of the akin to the European hatchback Civic. This new hatchback model will help the appealing Civic to catch the eye of even more shoppers as hatchbacks grow in popularity, especially around Colorado.
