First glimpse of The New Honda Civic
Honda line-up at the 2011 IAA Frankfurt Motor Show
August 31, 2011 - The new Honda Civic will be launched at the 2011 IAA Frankfurt Motor Show in September. Developed specifically for the European market, the new Civic will be offered exclusively as a five-door hatchback and will compete in the C-segment. It will reach European showrooms in early 2012.
The refreshed design of the new Civic features a rear combination light that works as a spoiler. The aerodynamic design of the spoiler manages the air flowing over the top and the sides of the car; this is just one example of how the new Civic has been refined.
Nearly all the body components have been redesigned with particular focus on ride and handling, reduced CO2 emissions, interior quality, while preserving the class-leading cabin and boot space and flexible practicality.
Another highlight will be the 2012 model year of the Honda Insight, which has received a facelift - more information about this model will be provided in due course.
The exhibition of cars will be completed by the display of the CR-Z, the CR-V, the Jazz and the Accord.
In addition, Honda will show a selection of its latest motorcycle and power equipment products.
The future according to Honda will be portrayed by showing the Honda EV Concept and the EV-Neo - Honda's electric vehicles on four and two wheels, as well as the FCX Clarity fuel cell electric vehicle and the Plug-In Hybrid Vehicle platform display.
