2017 Honda Civic spotted – first spy pictures
Source : 2017 Honda Civic spotted – first spy pictures
Next-generation Civic will be based on a brand-new platform as well as will take styling inspiration coming from brand-new York concept car
These are the first spy pictures of the brand-new Honda Civic, which has been spotted testing ahead of a planned launch inside UK in late 2017.
Previewed by the Honda Civic coupé at the brand-new York motor show back in April, the next-generation Civic will be based on a brand-new global platform which will also yield a all 5-door hatch as well as brand-new Type R, as well as the four-door saloon spotted here.
Although the item has yet to be confirmed by Honda, a brand-new Tourer variation will be also likely to join the range.
While these spy pictures give little brand-new away on the automobile’s design, they do show the next Civic will get an all-brand-new Internal, with an updated instrument cluster as well as dashboard design seen here.
Currently in development in Japan, the US as well as UK, Honda UK boss Philip Crossman has already hinted of which a hybrid variation will be offered on the next-generation Civic. Speaking to Autocar at the brand-new York motor show, he said: “We’ll come back using a class-leading hybrid powertrain inside next all 5 years,” said Crossman, “as well as the item’s likely to make as much impact as the VTEC valve system.”
Crossman admitted of which Honda has fallen behind with hybrids, despite being the first a new to launch one, with the Insight coupé.
Honda’s Swindon plant will build the all 5-door Civic for all markets around the planet, including the US as well as Asia, where demand for the hatchback variation will be rising.
