After display a well-received judgment chronicle this past open during a 2015 New York Auto Show, Honda suggested a 10th-generation Civic compact during an eventuality in Los Angeles.
The 2016 Honda Civic sedan will go on sale in a U.S. after this year, and will eventually be followed by coupe and five-door hatchback physique styles.
The prolongation automobile retains many styling elements from a two-door concept, including a bolder grille, and a sincerely neat roofline.
Helping to dress a pattern adult serve are customary LED daytime regulating lights and C-shaped taillights, and discretionary LED headlights.
The some-more streamlined new body–as good as a use of full underbody covers–also improves aerodynamic potency by 12 percent, according to Honda.
The 2016 Civic is also scarcely 2 inches wider and 1 in. reduce than a prior model, and rides on a 1.2-inch longer wheelbase.
And it gets dual all-new engine options.
Base models will use a 2.0-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine with Honda’s i-VTEC non-static valve timing system.
While it is not peaceful to plead specific figures, Honda claims a naturally-aspirated 2.0-liter will be a many absolute bottom engine ever offering in a Civic.
This engine will be offering with possibly six-speed primer or CVT involuntary transmissions.
Higher-level models will get a 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, with approach injection.
This is a initial time a turbocharged engine has been offering in a U.S. Civic outward a sporty Si model, according to Honda.
The Si will react a lineup during some destiny date, along with a chronicle of a some-more hardcore Civic Type-R formerly offering usually outward a U.S.
A CVT will be imperative for buyers selecting a 1.5-liter turbocharged engine.
Honda did not divulge fuel-economy total either, though says it is aiming for EPA highway ratings “in additional of 40 mpg.”
The association formerly pronounced it is discontinuing a Civic Hybrid–which is now rated during 45 mpg total (44 mpg city, 47 mpg highway)–in partial since potency gains by non-hybrid Civic models will make it unnecessary.
Fuel potency should be helped by a 2016 Civic’s lighter body.
Increased use of high-strength steel means that–despite a new Civic’s incomparable size–the unclothed unibody is 68 pounds lighter than before, Honda says.
Of course, some of those weight assets might be negated by a combined record facilities that are apropos requisite on new cars.
The 2016 Civic gets a new accessible infotainment complement with 7.0-inch touchscreen, identical to a one that debuted in a rested 2016 Accord.
It facilities Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, that concede drivers to entrance smartphone calm regulating a car’s built in hold and voice controls.
The Civic will also be offering with a Honda Sensing apartment of electronic motorist aids, including Collision Mitigation Braking, Road Departure Mitigation, and adaptive journey control.
