NAIAS 2011: Honda Civic Concepts

     Honda isn’t quite ready to debut the new ninth-generation Civic lineup yet, but that didn’t stop them from teasing us with mildly exaggerated coupe and sedan concepts. If you visually downsize the wheels, relocate the center exhaust tips and install an interior you’re looking at the 2012 Civic that will debut in a few short months.
     Our staff is split on the design direction, but Honda is planning a cautionary evolution to the current model instead of making any radical shifts that could endanger the Civic’s position as the company’s best-selling model. Officials wouldn’t talk powertrain specifics but did promise that all Civics will improve their fuel efficiency while announcing that the next Civic Hybrid will use a more powerful Lithium-ion battery pack.
