2013 USA Honda Civic to be launched in Los Angeles
The styling of the Honda Civic Sedan has been refined for a re-launch in the USA in 2013. The new-look Honda Civic will launch at the Los Angeles Motor Show November 29 2012. The new model will include updated safety, feature, comfort, chassis and interior styling enhancements. Contact your local Mekor Honda dealer for details of the Civic range in South Africa. (South Africa is unique in the sense that it is one of the few countries in the world that sells the Civic 4 door sedan, as well as the Civic 5 door Hatch).
The front end of the USA Honda Civic Sedan has been redesigned to feature a new open-mouth lower bumper with a horizontal chrome accent and a sportier, black mesh grille, with new integrated fog lights on upper trims. There will be new corner lights to provide a more premium look. The 2013 Honda Civic also has a new hood and wheel designs, to bring the design more in line with the USA type 2013 Honda Accord.
At the back, the bumper and rear trunk lid have been redesigned and capped by a clean, horizontal chrome trim piece. The all-new design of the jewel-like taillights now carries into the trunk face, providing a more finished and upscale look. The rear bumper features integrated reflector treatments and a new lower diffuser panel finished with a honeycomb mesh vent.
The 2013 Honda Civic exterior refinements infuse Civic with a more youthful, premium style. Coupling these with additional changes beneath will ensure that Civic maintains its top-ranked status.
Heading into 2013 with styling and content additions, the Civic's fun-to-drive nature and core attributes of safety, spaciousness and fuel efficiency remain intact. As the compact segment's retail sales leader, the Honda Civic continues as the benchmark for consumers looking for the smart purchase in a very competitive segment.
The Honda Civic remain the best car in the premium compact class in South Africa – with a sedan & hatch to choose from – and available in 1.6 i-VTEC, 1.8 i-VTEC (sedan), 1.8 i-VTEC and 2.2 i-DTEC (5 door).
New Civic Earth Dream Technology (EDT) expected soon
The long awaited Civic 5 door, equipped with the brand new 1.6 i-DTEC Earth Dream Technology engine is expected in South Africa soon. Power figures are expected at 89kW and 300Nm – which will place the new Civic in ground breaking territory. (Watch this space)
