Arriving with the Clarity Fuel Cell at the 2015 LA Auto Show, the 2016 Honda Civic Coupe is ready for its close-up as the co-star to the 2016 Civic Sedan.

The second of five models in the 10th-gen Civic lineup to arrive within the next 18 months, the Coupe will ride upon the same “athletic” platform as the Civic Sedan. Design cues include sportier lines and an intimate high-tech interior.

Power forecasted for the Civic Coupe is set for two all-new engines, including a first-ever turbocharged unit for U.S. market Civics. Few other details were given at this time, though Honda says to expect the Coupe to be as sporty, quiet and refined as the Sedan; the latter will enter U.S. showrooms November 12.

    The green one in the photo is the "concept" already shown a few weeks ago, right? That preview, with the same corrugated wall in the background, included a license plate with the word "concept" on it. Honda's production cars commonly closely resemble their previously shown concept models, but even so, there is some possibility that the final version will be toned down a bit.

    At least the gimmicky, ugly bi-level dashboard is gone, but the rest of this thing is so ugly few will buy it. Then Honda will sound like GM and say nobody wants coupes anymore so they will kill the coupe. It's a home run though, if you like the "ricer" look. Maybe Honda will offer a matte grey finish option.

      @NewLookFan: It’s a home run though, if you like the “ricer” look. Precisely one of the reasons I steer clear of Hondas - to avoid being associated with the "VTEC Just Kicked In YO!" clientele.

    Love that color! Of course even the new Civic is probably too small for me, so I will still have to lust after an Accord coupe instead.

    Funny you all hate it, this is the first Civic that looks good to me

      I'm surprised everyone hates it too. I think it's the best looking Civic since the conservative, but sharply styled 2001 version. Everything since then, and until now, has been a weird blob that looks like the pile of gummi bears I accidentally left on my dashboard last summer.
