The Honda Civic has remained completely unchanged ever since 2005, but things are going to change. The change will begin with the next generation that will be revealed at the end of 2012 and will go on sale as a 2013 model. With the next Civic, Honda will focus on reducing consumption and emissions while improving the current details of equipment and interior finish, all without harming the sale price.

Honda engineers are already testing the future generation, but the car is well hidden under the body of the current model. Even so, it is known that the 2013 Civic will get a CR-Z inspired exterior design although it will keep the same dimensions as the current generation.

Under the hood there will be a new generation of the low emission three-cylinder engine and a hybrid version featuring the same powertrain as the CR-Z: a 1.5-liter petrol engine assisted by an electric motor that delivers a total of 124 HP and 131 lb-ft of torque.

That’s right, a much better compared to the first design.

Not bad, and never knew that it has a futuristic design, but I guess the interior design and technology in that car contains futuristic design.

When Toyota postponed the redesign of the Corolla for a year, I figured it feared the Civic and went back to the drawing boards. But when it finally came out, I was curious on what exactly they updated to make it competitive. Even so, they probably should have waited an extra year to fix the quality issues on the car. For this wait, the next Civic will have to be better looking, better driving, better performing, better quality, and even more fuel efficient. Otherwise, if Hyundai’s Elantra proves to be a better car than the new Civic, then that will end my faith and loyalty to Honda, in engineering and design.

Honda is supposed to be designing it’s cars in California, same as Hyundai and some others. But it seems lately that their cars are probably designed where they are built...Ohio. Seriously, the grille on the Crosstour looks like it came off a 70’s American car (not a good decade for ANY manufacturer, in my opinion).
