Everybody’s favorite schadenfreude victim got a minor refresh intended to stave off the critics and ensure its continued dominance in the best-seller ranks. Did it work?
The changes to the 2013 Honda Civic aren’t exactly earth-shattering, and to be honest, we’re hoping that the interior gets the brunt of the cosmetic work, since it needed it the most. Powertrain and other mechanical details weren’t revealed either. We’ll have to wait for the L.A. Auto Show in a couple weeks time to get those sorted out. The 2012 Civic, even with its supposedly crappy interior, boring styling and forgettable driving dynamics, is still the 4th best selling car in America. The critics may not have liked it, but my Grandma sure did. And it’s her, not them, who are handing over the money.
