For the time first time ever, Honda’s North American design studio is the lead for the development of this new global platform. While the styling overall is evolutionary, there are more than a few styling elements that give it a fresh new approach. It begins in the front with Honda’s new corporate face with a deep sculpted air dam and LED integrated running lights with jewel like headlights. Prominently front fender arches lead the way to strong JDM inspired sculpted sides, but toned down just enough to not be too garish. The strong fastback roofline ends sharply in what looks like a hatchback but is actually a coupe with fantastic rear detailing and impressive wraparound LED tail lights.

Speaking of hatchbacks, Honda has confirmed that for the first time ever the 5-door hatchback will be offered in the North American market along with the coupe and sedan body styles. That wasn’t the end of firsts for the new Civic however. Honda also revealed, much to the excitement of enthusiasts, that the Type-R will also be available. Another first, will be the newly available VTEC Turbo 4-cylinder; both a first for Civic but also the first of Honda new Turbo engine family here in the states. It will be available on upper trim levels, while lower trim levels will use a new DOHC VTEC 4-cylinder. Both engines will be mated to either a six-speed manual or CVT transmission.

The new Civic goes on sale this Fall with Honda promising more info and specs as we get closer to that time. Pricing is estimated to remain largely the same even with new equipment levels. Although upper trims could edge into the high $20’s with new options like Honda Sensing. The coupe, sedan, and the Si will go on sale first, followed by the hatchback and Type-R sometime in 2016.
