After the arrival of design marks and spy photos last week, we now have a pretty good idea of what the next-gen Honda Civic will look like. In a pair of new renderings, KDesign AG takes this information and imagines what the new sedan might look like when it debuts in 2021.
The overall theme of the 11th generation Civic is to simplify the heavily crumpled look of the current model. Where the existing vehicle has arched headlights, the new one flattens them so that there is a distinct line along the top of the lamps and across the grille. There is a narrow grille under the Honda emblem and a cross member for the bumper separates it from another entry in the center of the lower fairing.
Although not visible in spy photos or trademarks, KDesign AG interprets the fog lights as being in the corners of the lower fairing. This is the most likely place for Honda designers to put them.
The rear of the Civic sedan highlights the flowing roofline of the new sedan. It gives the four-door a vaguely cut look from the rear. This variant has two separate tail lights, rather than a single lamp across the width of the tail, like what we see on the Civic hatchback.
The design mark images also show us what the dashboard of the new Civic looks like. The layout includes space for an infotainment screen at the top of the center console. Expect designers to locate the HVAC controls below. The lower section is a bit of a mystery as the hole looks too big to just be for storage.
The new Civic will debut in spring 2021 and go on sale for the 2022 model year. Honda is already confirming that there is an Si variant of the upcoming sedan, and spy photos show that the company is also developing a new Type R.
