The next generation Honda Civic has been in international motoring news more often than ever in recent days. After leaked patent images of exterior & interior, we now have clearer spy shots of 11th gen Civic than those appeared earlier, thanks to Motor1.
As evident from the images, the new Civic will be considerably longer & wider than the current generation model, as per reports it will sit on a completely new platform. Styling will be less overt compared to the 10th gen Civic we have now. There are new LED headlamps, a revised solid-wing fascia accompanied by redesigned bumpers and a flatter and longer bonnet. The central air dam is fairly larger than the current generation model.

Moving to the sides, the 11th gen Civic test mule retains the sloping roofline however having an extended trunk it looks less coupe-ish. Moreover the side mirrors have been relocated back to the doors (like 8th gen) instead of being mounted on the base of A-pillars as in the current 10th gen model.
As seen in one of the pictures from previous spy shots, the 11th gen Civic will have a redesigned dashboard with a floating touchscreen unit & new steering wheel as well. A better idea of interior and exterior can be had with the leaked patent images that appeared already. Although there is no official information about the powertrain options yet but the new Civic range is likely to get a turbocharged as well as a hybrid option as part of Honda’s plans to electrify its future range of cars.
The 10th generation Honda Civic went into production in September 2015 and was available for sale starting from North American markets in October 2015. The current product cycle for Honda models is 6 years which means the 10th gen Civic range is going to reach the end of its production run in 2021. As per reports the 11th gen Honda Civic will likely make its world debut somewhere in Q1, 2021. Stay tuned to CarSpiritPK for more information.
