    Uncovered! 2016 Honda Civic


    • Someone Caught the Honda Civic with no camouflage

    Someone at Honda is going to be yelled at. An eagle-eyed member of the CivicX forum caught the next-generation Civic parked outside of a building in Ann Arbor, MI.

     

    Compared to the Civic Coupe concept shown at New York, the production sedan retains a number of details such as the fastback shape and bold front end treatment. We have to admit that the Civic is quite the looker.

     

    We'll have more information and pictures when Honda officially introduces the next-generation Civic on Wednesday.

    I remember a Honda Civic when it was  sooooo small, it would have probably fit between the front and back wheels of this 2016 version.

    Also, the side profile reminds me of the side profile of a Nissan Maxima

    And my final thoughts...

     

    I never really liked a Honda Civic...ever.

    Well, that's the concept Maxima, not the production model.

     

    Yeah...its the Nismo I think.

     

    I couldnt find a decent side profile pic of a regular trimmed production Maxima.

    And I was desperate to show some sort of proof as to why I think the way I do...so...Voila! Nismo concept it is.

    I am not averse to chromium, but WTH is that giant block of it across the front of the new Civic?  Not bad otherwise, imo.  Makes me want to see the EX coupe.

    Looks ugly, and of course it has "4-door coupe" styling, which every car does not, it is so overdone.   It does look really big, I don't get why these cars keep growing.  Like Ford has made the Focus and Fusion grow to make room for the Fiesta, not the Taurus might be phased out.    So here the Civic is like becoming their new mid-size, if the Accord gets any bigger it will be a full size car, then they'll need a Fit sedan to fill in for where he Civic was 10 years ago.

    I'll admit that I am happy with the new Civic in terms of the looks. What I worry about is the interior and what powertrains will be available.

    At least we won't have to wait long to see it.

    FAIL and they say software is bloated, the auto companies are on the 70's-80's attitude of growing every auto, we now have 

     

    AUTO BLOAT!!! :metal:

     

    The Civic needs a diet in the worst way possible along with getting ride of the Metal Mouth front end.

    How can this be?

    So will the Fit grow next too?

     

    Probably. The Spark just did.

    Yup. Every car grows. Except maybe the Miata. But can anybody name a car that has shrunk in the past 5 years? That's just "how it goes".

    No Problem Olds :)

     

    I have always wondered why companies feel the need to grow an auto from one class to another besides the jones jones race of others added a few inches so we must also. Yet then they end up having to introduce a new auto when the existing one no longer fits in that segment and they need one to fit.

     

    We saw how in the 70's and 80's they grew and bloated auto's and ended up having to kill off the car. 

     

    So the new accord grows to become from mid to full size, the civic grows and goes from compact to mid size and the fit goes from subcompact to compact. So what will the new "FIT" subcompact car be?

    Yeah...I was just clicking randomly on the mouse, for fun I guess  :stupid: ..when the pointer drifted on the voting box thingy...

     

    I was trying to find an explanation why manufacturers grow their cars bigger and bigger...and came up with a theory, then I realized all that I was saying was just...jibber jabber :XD:

     

    I have no clue as to why they do...

     

    CCAP's explanation IS the best..."its just how it goes"

     

    I prefer to use the cliché that I ALWAYS use outside of the internets...It is what it is!

     

    (high lighted in blue and silver..just to kick off the 2015 NFL Football Season!)

    one reason models grow one class or whatever, their original demographic gets older and the class of car grows with it.......

    That would tend to go against marketing then of having customers move up as they grow up themselves from a basic compact to mid size to full size and pay more for more luxury. So I cannot go with the car grows up with the customer.

      We're just only month away before the Detroit Auto Show kicks off and automakers are beginning to tease out what they'll be showing. Today, Lexus has announced that the next-generation LS will debut at Detroit. Not much is known about the next LS aside from it using the all new Global Architecture-Luxury (GA-L) that debuted on the LC coupe this year. It would not be surprising if we see the 5.0L V8 (473 horsepower) with the 10-speed automatic and hybrid powertrains from LC being used in the LS.

      New Lexus LS Flagship Sedan to Make Global Debut at the 2017 NAIAS
      TORRANCE, Calif. (December 8, 2016) -- Lexus announced today that the all-new, fifth-generation LS flagship sedan will make its world debut at the 2017 North American International Auto Show next month.
      The introduction of the LS 400 in 1989 in Detroit made automotive history as a world-class car for the United States. Not only did the vehicle make its mark by offering the drive performance, quietness, and luxury that consumers expected from a premium vehicle, but its unveiling also heralded the birth of the Lexus brand.
      Now, 28 years later, the all-new LS sedan will be a world-class car for more than 90 countries around the globe, boasting a bold new look with a coupe-like silhouette. Built on the company’s all-new global architecture for luxury vehicles (GA–L), the premium rear-wheel drive platform—an extended version of that used in the LC 500—will offer a more dynamic experience on the road.  Inside the spacious cabin, luxurious appointments and visionary technology will provide drivers with the luxury experience they expect from a global flagship sedan.

      It has been a long time coming. But we knew sooner or later, we would get our first glimpse at the upcoming Opel/Vauxhall Insignia (also Buick Regal and Holden Commodore) minus the camo. That day has finally arrived as the Insignia sedan and Sport Tourer have been caught uncovered. 
      The front end reminds us a lot of the current Mazda6 - a flat nose with a pentagonal grille and slim headlights. Along the side, there has been some sculpting along the lower part of the doors that add some sharpness. The back end features similar styling to the Buick LaCrosse with a similarly shaped trunklid and taillights that extend into the rear fenders. The Sport Tourer features a more distinctive character line and a steeply raked rear tailgate.
      Both models are the top-line OPC trim which means a number of sporty touches to the exterior, 20-inch wheels, large Brembo brakes, small spoiler, and dual exhaust tips.
      The second-generation Insignia is 2.1 inches longer and rides on a wheelbase that has been stretched 3.6 inches. This should help one of the key issues of the current Insignia and its brethren, a tight back seat. The new Insignia has also been lowered by 1.1 inches to give it a sportier stance.
      Motor1 reports that Opel and Vauxhall will reveal the next-generation Insignia later this month online, followed by a debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March. The Sports Tourer expected a few months later.
