Honda Civic Concept previews all-new 2012 remake
While offering no mechanical details, Honda has provided this early look at what we can expect to at least see in the all-new 2012 Civic. The automaker says this teaser sketch of a Civic Concept that it will formally reveal next month in Detroit indicates the "styling direction" to be found in the production model that's set to arrive at dealers here in the spring. Its bolder lines and more aggressive bodywork details display a clear CR-Z influence, a factor that should help raise the 2012 Civic's profile among more youthful buyers in what has become an ultra-competitive market segment. We'll just have to wait to see exactly how much of that newfound flash actually makes it to the volume-build product, which is expected to continue offering both coupe and sedan body styles.
