The 2016 Honda Civic Coupe has been revealed with sexy new curves.

While much of the mechanical gear remains the same compared to the Civic sedan, the Coupe offers a sloped roofline and new proportions to make it the sexy option in the Civic lineup. The Coupe has a wheelbase that is 2.9 inches longer than the sedan, a 1.9 inch wider body, shorter overhangs and sits roughly one inch lower than the four-door car.

In the rear, a new rear tail light that sweeps across the entire deck lid has been included, while inside, space grows by 8.4 cubic feet compared to the previous car, while rear seat legroom is increased by five inches.

Just like the sedan, the 2016 Honda Civic Coupe will offer two engines, a 2.0-liter four-cylinder with 158 hp and 138 lb-ft of torque along with a new 1.5-liter turbocharged four pot that makes 174 hp and 162 lb-ft of torque. Fuel economy for the turbo engine is pegged at 31 mpg in the city, 42 on the highway for a combined 35 mpg, while the 2.0-liter engine should get 31 mpg in the city and 41 on the highway for a combined 35.

Honda still has a few Civic variants under wraps, including the hatchback, Si and Type R models, which will be arriving sometime in the next year or so.

    With every model, they grow bigger, heavier, and further from why the company became popular in the first place. Still though, fat and bland is custom-made for the US market.

    Honda, never again. Bought Honda, on the 3rd year engine cracks. I got a new engine ONLY because I researched and found the bulletin explaining how SOME Honda 2006 -2009 could have a defect on the engine coating causing them to crack. Then my paint peels off within months of buying it. They sent out letters but since I was the 3rd owner, too bad, so sad. My car looks older then my 1999 Mercury.
