The first comment is that it’s far more subdued than the car it replaces.
It certainly has visual ties to the current Honda Accord.
And, little seems to have changed from the Civic Prototype that debuted last November.
Mid-way through November last year, Honda shared images of its 2022 Honda Civic Prototype. The short of the reaction to the Prototype was: Good job toning down the car’s design. Now, pictures of the final production version of the Civic have leaked on the web and the reaction is: It’s almost identical to the Prototype.
The 11th generation Honda Civic is expected to go on sale this spring meaning that its official reveal is possibly only a few weeks off. It is not inconceivable that the car that will debut then will be slightly different than the one seen in these images. Apparently, according to The Drive, this Civic is destined for the Chinese market. We suppose the markings above the left-rear taillights are the giveaway.
Speaking of the taillights, they are, much like the remainder of the car, nearly identical to the Prototype. This also applies to the front end’s brow that is reminiscent of that of the current Honda Accord. Like the Prototype, there’s a near-complete absence of brightwork and chrome-like touches. Clearly gone are the 10th gen’s excessive plastic inserts in the rear and busy light treatments.
Canada and the US are expected to once more get the sedan and the hatchback. They will be powered by the same two 4-cylinder engines. Importantly, the Si and Type R will also return.
