mockup of 2016 honda civic spec sheets fools autoblog

[UPDATE: Autoblog owned up to its mistake with the following:Alright, we made a mistake. Turns out this “leak” was actually just a mockup done by a CivicX forum member, and we totally went along with it. Sorry, folks. You’ll have to wait a little longer for your hot Civic pricing news.” – CA]

Earlier this morning, Autoblog published a leak regarding the pricing of the 2016 Honda Civic. In its rush to be first, however, it forgot to confirm.

The specs sheets were originally pulled from a CivicX forum around speculation of the upcoming compact’s pricing and other features. Those sheets were a mockup from member RobbJK88, a graphic designer who wrote the following about them:

I just did this for fun, i was bored at work. It’s in no way official, just speculation based on what we know about the civic already, the current civic, and what honda has mentioned in various interviews. I based most of the standard equipment listed on the features for the current civic while moving a few things around based on Honda’s promises of more standard equipment and such. Any speculation on what we might see, or would like to see that i may have missed?

RobbJK88 adds that he pulled the specs from from the Civic models currently listed on Honda’s website, then tweaked them and the prices to match up with speculation.

    No point in beating up Autoblog; they do a pretty good job.

    I was suspicious when they spelled "brakes" as "breaks". ;-)

    My comment has nothing to do with this article, but that Civic looks awesome.

    Since this is a Civic, we can predict with 90% certainty: 1. Ugly as sin, specially the SI. 2. Less torque than a John Deere lawnmower. 3. Numb electric steering borrowed from Pilot or similar. 4. Still 90% good as an Acura ILX, while costing 5 grand less.
