All-New 2016 Honda Civic Sedan Set To Debut On September 17Auto News
In only a week’s time, the tenth generation Honda Civic Sedan will make its global debut, five months after it was previewed by the sporty Civic Concept during the 2015 New York International Auto Show back in April.
Scheduled to take place at YouTube Space Los Angeles, the unveiling of the all-new Civic will be streamed live on YouTube on September 16 at 6.15pm (local L.A. time). Converted to our local time, the reveal will take place on September 17 at 9.15am.
Details on the upcoming Honda Civic are limited at the moment although we do have a good guess what the final product will look like based on official patent images which were leaked online, revealing minor changes from the concept shown. Not too soon after that, we were given a first look at the Civic's all-new interior as well which showed a significant departure from the one found in the current ninth generation model.
The new Civic lineup will include the Civic Sedan, Coupe and Si models, along with the first-ever five-door Civic hatchback for the U.S. market, as well as an all-new, radically powerful Civic Type-R as the performance flagship of the Civic lineup.
In terms of powertrain, a new turbocharged VTEC engine featuring direct injection, with transmission options including either a six-speed manual or CVT automatic will be offered depending on the market the sedan is sold in.
