Honda unveils its completely revamped 2016 Civic

A notably overhauled Honda Civic model – the 2016 Honda Civic – was unveiled by Honda Motor Co in Los Angeles last week. The 2016 Honda Civic model is the tenth-generation Civic boasts entirely new underpinnings which will used in all new Civic models sold across the world.

The 2016 Honda Civic will be available in sedan, coupe, hatchback and two high-performance versions.

According to the details shared by Honda, the new 2016 Civic model will be 25mm lower than the old Civic models; and also 68 pounds lighter in weight, thanks largely to the ultra high-strength steel used in 12 percent of its construction. In addition, the new Civic will also be nearly 2-inch wider than its predecessors; and 1.2 inches longer between the wheels.

The 2016 Honda Civic will come with a new body which has been designed exclusively for the car’s new sporty engines. The car will be available two engine options --- a 2.0-liter VTEC inline-four engine; and a 1.5-liter turbocharged, direct injection VTEC inline-four engine. The car will also feature a fastback-style tail.

Describing the 2016 Civic model as “the most ambitious remake of Civic we (Honda) have ever done,” American Honda Motor’s Executive VP John Mendel said: “We are bringing more new technology and innovative thinking to Civic than ever before to establish a new benchmark for fun-to-drive performance, fuel efficiency, safety performance and refinement in the compact class.”
