Honda News: Uncovered! 2016 Honda Civic

Recommended Posts

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.

How can this be?

So will the Fit grow next too?

 

Most likely, but that it so far out at the moment since Honda just released the current Fit last year.

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.

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.

      There was a number of people who were disappointed at the news that Ford wouldn't be bringing over the Ranger Raptor to the U.S. When you take into consideration that the current-generation model has been sold around the world since 2011, Ford decided it was too late in the lifecycle of the model to design a Raptor variant to meet various regulations. But there is the chance of the next-generation Ranger Raptor coming to the U.S.
      Road & Track has done some sleuthing into social media profiles for various Ford engineers and has uncovered some interesting information. The current Ranger has an internal project code of P375 and is expected to stick around for a few more years. The next-generation model, due in 2022, uses the code of P703. It is expected that the next-generation Ranger will be sharing a number of parts with the Bronco.
      How does the Raptor fit into this picture? In a recently posted project description, it mentions a chassis engineer has been working on a Ranger Raptor with the P703 code being built with North America in mind. The engineer has also worked on the current version of the Ranger (known as P375N) and the Ranger Raptor. Doing some more digging and speaking to some sources at Ford, the new Ranger Raptor is likely to be called “Project Redback” internally. Project Redback was the project name for the current Ranger Raptor.
      Road & Track doesn't have any information the powertrain, but speculates that North America would likely get a gas engine. Other markets get a diesel engine for the Raptor.

      At the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas NV, Honda is demonstrating a prototype of their new Honda Dream Drive infotainment system. The new system integrates both driver and passenger infotainment.
      For the driver, Honda Dream Drive offers an expansion of Honda's existing in-vehicle payment system.  It allows drivers to pay for fuel, movie tickets, food pickup or delivery, and parking. Additionally, the system can make restaurant reservations and share the vehicle location with family and friends. Originally exclusively through Visa, the payment system now include Mastercard and Paypal. 
      For passengers, Honda Dream Drive offers games, watch movies, listen to music, use travel apps, and explore points of interest along the route, all from the passengers' mobile device. 
      As this is a demonstration of a prototype, there is no official release date announced for Honda Dream Drive.

      The next-generation Mercedes-Benz S-Class is expected to arrive very soon, with sales beginning sometime next year for Europe. But we don't know much about it, until now.
      Autocar recently published a report proving some interesting details about the next S-Class. The big news is that Mercedes will only be offering electrified powertrains for the S, including mild (using an electric motor mounted in the gearbox) and plug-in versions. Engines are said to be variants of Mercedes' new inline-six in gas and diesel flavors, and the AMG-developed 4.0L V8.
      For the design, recent spy photos reveal that Mercedes will be implementing a new grille, tri-band LED multibeam headlights, and door handles that retract into the bodywork to improve overall aero. One change that may surprise buyers in Europe is Mercedes' decision to drop the standard wheelbase model and only offer the long-wheelbase variant. According to Autocar, the reason is due to the new E-Class coming close in size to the standard-wheelbase S-Class (193.7-inches for the E-Class vs. 201.7-inches for the S-Class).
