Honda has taken the wraps off the 2015 Civic Concept at the New York Auto Show this week. It serves as a sneak preview of the tenth generation Civic scheduled to go on sale this fall in United States where it will be available in the following guises: hatchback, coupe, sedan, Si and Type R. It will be equipped with a newly developed VTEC Turbo 1.5-liter direct-injection gasoline engine teamed up with a short-shift six-speed manual gearbox or a new continuously variable transmission (CVT). The model will also benefit from a longer wheelbase granting a more spacious cabin and it will get a plethora of safety & assistance system.
As far as the 2015 Civic Concept is concerned, the concept adopts a “Flying H” front grille and sleek LED headlights while the body is much wider and sits considerably lower. Honda says they have shortened the front overhang and rear deck along with installing more pronounced fender arches as well as connected LED taillights and a fixed rear wing which hosts the third brake light. The new exhaust system ends with a hexagonal single tip mounted in the middle.
