The Honda Civic has remained completely unchanged ever since 2005, but things are going to change. The change will begin with the next generation that will be revealed at the end of 2012 and will go on sale as a 2013 model. With the next Civic, Honda will focus on reducing consumption and emissions while improving the current details of equipment and interior finish, all without harming the sale price.
Honda engineers are already testing the future generation, but the car is well hidden under the body of the current model. Even so, it is known that the 2013 Civic will get a CR-Z inspired exterior design although it will keep the same dimensions as the current generation.
Under the hood of the next generation of models will show off the new 3-cylinder eco-friendly engines and hybrid power unit that combines a 1.5-liter gasoline engine with an electric unit. The total capacity of the hybrid engine will make 124 hp.
The exact date of the premiere of the new generation Honda Civic has not been revealed.
2013 Honda Civic Release Date
The 2013 Honda Civic should go on sale by September 2012. Honda builds about 90 percent of the Civics sold in the U.S. at assembly plants located in North America
