The New Civic

How do you feel about it compared to its competition? I'm actually kind of jealous...

I was up at the dealershio last night, they had a black sedan with some accessory rims that looked killer. I really think this car, even with its somewhat radical looks, is going to sell like hotcakes. Great advertised mileage, which means it probably gets better in the real world will help it a lot. The car seems like a solidly built piece, I was quite impressed.

I don't like the exterior, except for maybe the rear end of the car, and even then, it's just one thing on there that I like. The interior look's "Interesting"... but definitely far from beautiful.

Stylistically the last civic was already a step back. The 1997-2000 Civic was a good looking car. The coupe actually had a little bit of elegance to it. The 2001/2 cars sucked and ripped off the euro Astra BIG TIME in the front. Then in 03/04/05 they improved them a lot wiht just a subtle twek here & there. Now this new one looks terrible. I've always been a CRX fan and think those cars are coming bakc but if they make a new CRX wiht the coupe/hatchbacks front end styling it will look hideous! :puke:

Compacts bore me, especially ones with retro digital gauges, asymetrical interior trim pieces, and a faux HUD.

Agreed every word with Sixty8 on the 97-05 Civics. As regards the current one, I like the looks of the Civic Si coupe. I'd like to see a base DX model without the 18 inch alloys and spoiler and the like to see if it's still attractive. The sedans I'm not sure about - I'll need to see one in person before I'm decided. The design of the interior is a big step back IMO. It's just odd. Odd can be a good thing - I'm all for taking some chances stylistically. This is not one of those. Blech. The only plus is that they offer a Nav system - GM needs to do this, too. -RBB

Compared to its competition, though, this thing is amazing. Comes as a hybrid, good styling (almost love it or hate it), and it's made by Honda. Okay, minus the Honda part. But it's a good vehicle and should do very well..

Haha. Yeh because those things are beautiful. Definately better than the new Civic Si :P

Personally, I liked the Concept model more. Of course it wouldn't take much to make the production Civic Si look as good as it (minus the red calipers though). I would also go for gloss black rims with a polished lip, or a darker, more deep gunmetal like what came on the DC2 00-01 Integra Type R. These rims just look a little flat:

I finally checked it out in person... The interior is... I must say, not that bad. I still don't like the dual clusters, but the dash itself, I can live with. Same with the rest of the interior. The exterior looks even better in person. If I had the money for a new car... The Civic Si would be at the top of my list since there is no compact coupe available from Pontiac.

I think the odometer needle is especially retro.

They can definitely advertise the front end as "pedestrian friendly", it's sooo smooth. Overall, I like the car except for the dashboard and steering wheel. I want to see an EX coupe.

Haven't seen the car in person yet, so I can't say. But has anyone seen the commercial yet, it's great great advertising, and that song is awesome. Does anybody know what song and commercial I'm talking aobut? It mostly just has the car and two people in the car, but the song is perfect for Honda's target market, and then they talk about the hybrid version. It really hits the target audience well.

i dont mind the exterior. i think they botched the interior. digital gauges of any kind suck. the new dash is too bizarre, although it seems to fit the same theme as a hybrid prius. i think they styled the interior in a techie way to promote the civic hybrid.

Hehehe... brie?

Thanks Cspec... I went there last night and built a light blue EX coupe manual. I was wondering when the cars would hit the lots.
