Honda’s most successful model in the lineup will be receiving a few updates for its European version in 2011. The Honda Civic will not only get some exterior modifications, but it will also get some tweaks for the interior.
The first addition to the exterior of the Civic is a new front grille inspired from the iconic ‘Type R’ model. The grille is followed by a range of new alloy wheels fitted as standard with individual designs and sizes dependent on the variant chosen. The five-door range in the 1.4L SE and Si, as well as the 1.8L SE trim level, will get new 16-inch rims. The five-door 1.8-liter Si now wears a fresh set of 17-inch boots. Also for 2011, customers will have another exterior color to choose from: Ionized Bronze.
For the interior, Honda will offer a series of new interior finishes. The SE and ES trim gets half fabric and luxurious Alcantara, while the Si is now half leather and Alcantara with heated front seats.
The new Civic will go on sale in November at a price of £13,995.
Press release after the jump.
The British-built Honda Civic has been given a refresh with a range of cosmetic enhancements for 2011. The updates and additions are designed to enhance the striking appearance and passenger comfort of the car at no extra cost to the customer.
Production for the 2011 Honda Civic begins at the Swindon manufacturing plant in November 2010 with prices starting from £13,995 for the 1.4 Type S.
Eyes are immediately drawn to the new front grille, which has taken inspiration from the iconic ‘Type R’ model, creating a smarter, more upmarket face for the popular hatchback.
Exterior updates also include a range of new alloy wheels now fitted as standard, with individual designs and sizes dependent on the variant chosen. New 16-inch rims feature on the Civic five-door range in 1.4-litre SE and Si, plus 1.8-litre SE trim levels. While the five-door 1.8-litre Si now wears a fresh set of 17-inch boots.
On the sports-inspired Type S model, the 1.4-litre Civic now benefits from colour-coded sideskirts and revised 16-inch alloys. The other news is a dynamic new exterior colour - Ionized Bronze, which is available across the Civic range.
Keeping the driver and passenger comfortable is also part of the 2011 Model Year upgrade package, with a series of new interior finishes. SE and ES trim gets half fabric and luxurious Alcantara, while Si is now half leather and Alcantara with heated front seats.
