Honda Civic revealed in prototype form

2021 Honda Civic Sedan Debuts On Twitch With Whole New Premium Look

The sedan will make its transition to the 11th-gen after a run of 48 years in the global markets.

Honda is getting ready to unleash its 11th generation Civic and the "prototype" that you see here is a very clear indication of how the sedan version will look when it goes into production in 2021.

Honda has also provided a teaser image of the interior. The rest of the body, meanwhile, maintains the same athletic proportions and low ride height as the 10th-generation model on which it's based, but looks a touch smoother with new side detailing, a crinkled C-pillar (a la Cadillac), and more pronounced detailing both front and back. Honda has yet to confirm if the new model will be offered in the United Kingdom and Europe. The Civic cabin will have a "dramatic makeover" with the words "clean" and "uncluttered" frequently cropping up in its description. The redesigned interiors offer exceptional ergonomics and outstanding visibility and the modern styling elements and the technology add to the enhanced in-cabin experience.

Although the company hasn't revealed the interiors of the new Civic, it noted that the vehicle would get a modern dashboard layout as compared to the current model.

"The 11th-generation Civic will be offered in the hatchback bodystyle preferred by the majority of small auto buyers in Australia, including the performance Type R variant", they added.

Finished in a new exterior paint colour called "Solar Flare Pearl", the prototype provides a close preview of the upcoming production version of the sedan variant. Has it been sanitized a little too much, or is this exactly what the Civic needed.

What is more evident at the rear is the slightly wider track, while there are new taillights, boot lid with a trailing edge and two oval exhaust tips.

Honda has confirmed that the new-generation Civic will be offered in sedan and hatchback bodystyles once it does hit production lines. Following a long hiatus of six years, Honda brought the Civic back at the 2018 Auto Expo before launching it in March 2019 and it now leads the executive sedan segment. The 2021 Honda Civic will also have the first ever all digital instrument cluster. It's a sketch for now, but we can see that the dashboard sports a full-width honeycomb-mesh trim piece that integrates the slim air vents, and is part of a continuous line that extends into the door handles.

Honda has also mentioned the new Civic will get a raft of active and passive safety features, new airbag designs and driver assistance systems, but hasn't elaborated on any of them.

Dimensionally, overseas media report the Civic Prototype - and eventual, showroom-bound 2022 Civic sedan - will be similar in size to the current Civic, with around 25-30mm increases in overall length and wheelbase.
