The iconic Honda Civic is set for a full-model change next year and Honda certainly are shouldering quite a burden with the expectations that would follow on a model like this. Though the shots here are from models being delivered to dealerships in America, the current Civic we get here is very similar to the ones over there, albeit with a few cosmetic changes to the exterior and of course powertrain options.



Nonetheless, this could be a very good indication of the new Civic that would be coming our way. Snagged by the guys over at 9thCivic.com, the shots give an all-around look of the car as well as engine bay and interior views.



First impressions leave us feeling that the ninth iteration of the Civic will be losing some of its sporty exterior appeal in favour of a more subdued and matured facade. The interior looks to retain the double-tiered dash with some styling cues that progress from the newer generation of models design language. It's interesting to note too that the dash is more driver-oriented now.



Still, the million-dollar question remains, will the new Civic retain any of the enthusiastic driving traits that its predecessor benefitted from? Granted, it wasn't an all-out point-and-shoot weapon but the Civic did always seem to handle a little better that its peers.

It's quite a big shoe to fill coming from FD as it's predecessor
Should be the same when ES came out to replace EK...

Nevertheless...... I still agree that the styling ques are a bit more subtle
Much like the present Honda City

Looks like a Hybrid to be honest.
Honda is moving into GREEN... the cost of petrol increasing.
Honda cannot afford to build CIVIC EK or FD type that can last 10years in terms of looks and design.

Nowadays trend for manufacturer is to come out with new model design every 5 years. Therefore manufacturer will profit with new sales and consumer will change their vehicle in order to follow the trend and upgrade their status as well.

Take Toyota for example, see where they're today with their strategy and we cant blame Honda by following them.
