2016 Honda Civic Spied Inside and Out

11

A new set of 2016 Honda Civic spy photos have just rolled in, offering a glimpse at some of the car’s details. 

Inside, the new Civic appears to be heavily revised, with an entirely new center stack that gets rid of the current’s cars two-display setup. Leather and carbon fiber trim can be seen in the photos, along with a button for rear seat heaters. Storage is also not in short supply, with two large bins on either side of the shifter.

Pictures from underneath the new Civic show off the updated single and dual exhaust setups, while the tires being used on these prototypes are 15/50R17s on Firestone FT140 tires, and 215/55R16s on Hankook Kinergy GT rubber. Honda’s Lanewatch system is also present, which houses a camera in the passenger side mirror that eliminates blind spots by showing you what is directly beside your car.

Up front, new LED headlights that seem to mimic what we see on the new 2016 Accord are present. They were seen on the same model with the leather and heated rear seats, likely to be the top-trim Civic.

Honda says that this new Civic will mark the return of “fun-to-drive” to the brand’s cars. Part of this plan includes a new turbocharged four-cylinder engine that will be available with the Civic. A new Type R model is also coming to the U.S., though it may not arrive until 2018.

    Pleasantly surprised by the volume knob and physical buttons on the head unit. 🙂

    no more upper speedometer or I-Mid.. I’m excited to see the interior completely revealed, it seems a lot more classy then previously.

  • roundthings

    I was just about to say the same thing!
    They all need to bring this back. Ergonomics and safety.

  • roundthings

    Looks like they got rid of the ridiculous dual cowl finally.
    Buttons and knobs on the radio and HVAC=very good.
    The steering wheel controls look cheap, I prefer the toggle switches like on my Mazda 3.
    Should I assume the seats will be incredibly uncomfortable like on all Civics I’ve ever sat in?

    Have had two civics recently and loved the two-tier dash design don’t know what the problem was. They were so different and unique from everything else, seems like a step backward to mundane dashboard design that looks like everything else on the road. But I can see the overall redesign of the next generation Civic is going to look good!

  • almazing

    As boring as ever.

  • Mike

    Looks big and bloated. Not too exciting. Rear seat warmers….whoope!!! Kia and Hyundai already have that as an option in their El cheapo cars. Next.

  • Mike

    I agree. I like the current two tier dash. It definitely stands out.

  • Shiratori1

  • Brakehold is a nice add-on
