Honda will unveil a refreshed version of its Civic compact later this month at the Los Angeles auto show. The 2013 Honda Civic promises a number of safety, comfort and styling enhancements.
The result of widespread complaints about the Civic's styling and generally cheap-feeling interior, the 2013 Civic will arrive in LA with heavy updates both inside and out.
The Civic will adopt new front-end styling for 2013, with the compact sporting an updated lower bumper with chrome accents, black honeycomb mesh grille, clear-lens corner lights and a more sculpted hood. Upper-trim versions of the 2013 Civic receive new integrated fog lights.
Out back the 2013 Civic gets a new-look bumper as well as a lower diffuser panel with a honeycomb mesh vent.
Honda says the 2013 Civic will boast an improved interior and more comfortable ride, but the Japanese automaker is holding off on revealing full specs until the LA show.
"The 2013 Honda Civic exterior refinements infuse Civic with a more youthful, premium style. Coupling these with additional changes beneath will ensure that Civic maintains its top-ranked status," said Vicki Poponi, assistant vice president of product planning for American Honda.
The revised 2013 Honda Civic is scheduled to arrive on dealer lots on November 29.
