Here is the look of the prototype of the new Honda Civic

Honda has unveiled a  prototype of the next Civic , which this time around looks cleaner and more mature. The 11th generation Honda was presented via Twitch in an effort to spice up the reveal of the traditional car and introduce it to young buyers. However, we believe that the appearance of the previous Civic likely appealed to Twitch audiences more.

The reveal of the prototype of the new Civic

Honda only revealed the sedan version of the Civic in prototype form, in an all-new “Solar Flare Pearl” color - and it's certainly eye-catching - but less traveled than the previous model. Think something closer to Honda's CRV and HRV models and the American Accord, and you're almost there.


Overall, the Civic looks simpler and more sophisticated, but it retains the grille, low hood, and healthy styling posture - although the former has been scaled back.

Honda hasn't posted any photos of the interior, but has revealed at least one sketch. The Civic's interior will receive a “radical makeover,” with the words “clean” and “uncluttered” appearing frequently in its description. The cockpit will be fully digital for the first time and a 9-inch high-definition infotainment screen will appear in the center of the instrument panel.

Our favorite part? A wide grille on the dashboard adds to the clean look of the Civic's new cabin, but also hides the air vents.

What about the Type R?

According to Honda, the production version of the Civic sedan will be unveiled late next spring, with the hatchback, Si and Type R models to follow soon after. What is less certain is whether the car will come to France and, if so, whether its Type R variant will join it.

The signs are not good; Until now, the Civic Type R has been very US-focused, from the sedan's reveal to the use of North American sales figures in all current communications.

What do you think of the next Civic? Was it a little too sanitized, or is that exactly what the Civic needed. Let us know in the comments.
