First-ever live Twitch car reveal
11th-gen Civic looks like return to past designs
Honda is just about ready to reveal the latest version of the best-selling car in the country. But this time they’ll be doing it via Twitch stream instead of the traditional reveal.
It’s the 11th-generation of the Honda Civic, and it’s always a big deal for the automaker. This time even more so since it’ll be shown in prototype form as the first-ever vehicle to debut live on Twitch, on the automaker’s Honda Head2Head channel.
Ready to go live on November 17th at 8 pm Eastern with a live performance by Grammy-nominated recording artists Cordae, and en extensive pre-show, the car itself will be displayed at 9:45 pm. While Honda calls it a prototype, when the automaker shows a prototype that’s usually exactly (or very close to exactly) what you’ll see in production form.
As far as the car, there’s a teaser video included that gives us a bit of a look at the new sedan. While the current 10th-gen car was a massive departure from Civics past and arrived looking a little bit too gimmicky for some, Civic 11 seems much more restrained. Almost Accord in appearance, especially in profile, with a short trunk lid that looks like it should be a hatch and a taillight design and badge placement that calls back to the 2013-2014 models.
We’ll see the whole car during the live reveal, with the new Civic expected to go on sale in late spring as a 2022 model year vehicle.
