    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!

    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 have been wondering what the next-generation Buick Enclave would look like and now we have a general idea. Automotive News got their hands on some new spy shots showing an Enclave test mule sitting at a gas station. It appears Buick has made the Enclave less bulbous than the current model. The front end features Buick's new waterfall grille that debuted on the LaCrosse and a set of slim headlights. For the back, there's a new set of taillights and dual-exhaust system.
      If the Chevrolet Traverse is anything to go by, the Enclave will get the current 3.6L V6 producing 305 horsepower hooked up to a nine-speed automatic. There is the possibility of a 2.0L turbo-four with 255 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque.
      The next-generation Buick Enclave is expected to debut at the New York Auto Show.

      Honda Clarity Kicks Advertising into High Gear!
      While on YouTube I discovered a whole new crop of videos to help sell the Honda Clarity Hydrogen auto. Interesting that they went again to PES a video man that has a reputation for stop motion commercials. This time they went with kids singing and the heads one has to figure represent the hydrogen molecules in the tank. Honda YouTube
      Additional commercials also made by PES for Honda's big push of the Clarity Hydrogen auto:
      As one follows the links from YouTube for the Honda Clarity it is amazing to see all the other videos too such as the one below on how a fuel cell works.
      As I learned from the RoadShow video, the Clarity is in essence an EV with a Hydrogen Generator to give you a 366 mile range. What I was surprised by is that both the Toyota Mirai and this clarity are lease only auto's with a stated value of $60,000 more or less and free hydrogen for the first 3 years.
      Makes one wonder WHY, WHY would you want such an UGLY auto with such a high monthly lease cost when there are far better options out there. I love my alternative auto's and EV's are rocking it more and more, so for an energy upside down auto, do we really need these?
      One Positive is that this is the first time I actually like the dash and the tablet interface for the auto with proper sized buttons to control everything else.
      Want to know more about Hydrogen Auto's, this is a great video that covers what some think is the future for the auto industry.

      The current Ford Focus has been with us since 2012 and it is getting somewhat long in the tooth when compared with the likes of the Chevrolet Cruze, Honda Civic, and refreshed Mazda3. But Ford is on the case as we have gotten our first look at the next-generation Focus caught by a spy photographer.
      It looks like Ford is planning to do some evolutionary changes in terms of the Focus' exterior to keep it in line with other Ford models. The interior looks to be taking some ideas from the new Fiesta and refreshed EcoSport with a similar center stack design. Reports say Ford will go with an all turbocharged engine lineup with the 1.0L three-cylinder EcoBoost being the base engine. ST and RS variants are expected down the road.
      We expect to see the next-generation Focus sometime next year.

      I have one co-worker who has been a thorn in my side for the past 6 months.... but I have to admit that when I need something done that is in his area of expertise, he goes after it like an angry rabid chihuahua and gets it done.
