Honda Japan has recently announced that it would be stopping the production of its popular Honda Civic in its home country. However, the brand has stated that it will still be making the vehicle for other countries that Civic still has a strong market in. With that said images have recently surfaced from kurdistan_automotive_blog on Instagram that indicates an 11th generation Honda Civic is already undergoing testing.
While the images do show a camouflaged sedan it does share in the similar styling cues seen in photos of the next-generation Honda Civic Type-R that also has been spreading around the internet. The new photos show that the possible all-new Civic now comes with a much broader front face sharing in the same design language as its bigger brother the Honda Accord. Judging from the photos the next-generation Honda Civic could also come with a newly-designed grille along with a new set of sleeker-looking split LED headlights. Unfortunately, there are no rear photos of the vehicle and as such we can not determine if Honda has done something to change the back of the vehicle for its next model year.
Moving over to the side of the Honda Civic it does still retain a similar silhouette to the current 10th generation of the popular Japanese sedan. While still uncertain, the photo does indicate that the 11th generation Civic may come with a new set of taillights that are smaller and sleeker than the ones found on the current generation. This may indicate that the Japanese brand has opted to go with the design language found on the 2021 Honda City that made its debut in Thailand.
Not much else is known about the next-generation model apart from what is seen in these photos. However, considering Honda’s track record for continuing to innovate its vehicle lineup this 11th generation Civic may be geared up to bring a more sporty feel into the Japanese automaker’s lineup. If the Japanese brand will follow the current automotive trends then the next generation vehicle could very well come with a new turbocharged engine, a CVT, or a hybrid-electric drivetrain.
