SPIED: Next-gen 2016 Honda Civic Spotted in Michigan

Photos of the 2016 Honda Civic have popped up online in Civic forums, ahead of the car’s official reveal on Sept. 16.

The photos follow closely the Civic Concept we saw in New York, including the taillight array (although it doesn’t go all the way across the trunk.)

The Civic will be powered by a 1.5-liter turbocharged four with direct injection mated to a six-speed manual or CVT.

The sedan is likely to hit showrooms sometime soon with the coupe, hatch and Si models to follow soon. The Type R hatchback model will likely be powered with a 2-liter turbo four producing 300 horsepower, instead of the smaller mill.

    It looks like the windshield is more vertical than on the current model, resulting in the base of the A-pillars being moved back. This should be an improvement over the pedestrian-obstructing pillars of the current generation. As others have mentioned, the slope of the roofline suggests that rear seat headroom and ease of entry might be iffy.

      Good eye with the A-pillar angle. Dare we hope for others to follow?

    I feel like an old man for saying this, however...It's definitely a sharp looking car, and despite some similarity to Mazda elements it doesn't come across as derivative. Unfortunately, that fastback roof must cut headroom in the backseat, and that trunk lid won't help on trips to Costco. Remember, for some buyers, this will be the family car

    I love my new compact, light, and responsive Civic! Says absolutely no one ever again.

    I wonder which print magazine in Ann Arbor left it sitting on 5th. I'm guessing the pompous Automobile bunch. Only because I would like to see how glowing a review it gets to keep in the American Honda Motor Co. good graces.
