2012 Honda Civic Teased

Honda officially teased the new generation Civic with some camouflaged picture of the car in testing sessions in the UK.

The ninth generation Civic will be unveiled at the IAA Frankfurt Motorshow in September, introducing a host of new features. Based on the first details Honda has released, the car will have a smoother ride than the previosu model thanks to a fancy new suspension system which also gives it good handling.

The looks of the car are still a well-kept secret, but Honda says the 2012 Civic will be roomier and more practical, setting new standards in terms of space in this class. We will soon find out more about it, so stay tuned.


More details on 2012 Honda Civic in the press release below:

Ninth generation hatchback for Europe to make world debut at Frankfurt Motor Show

A new Honda Civic that’s more confident, clever and versatile makes its debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September.

The ninth generation Civic hatchback will offer stand-out looks combined with class-leading space for passengers and luggage – and will continue to deliver peace of mind with low running costs, through Honda’s famed and unparalleled reliability.

Quality and comfort levels have improved dramatically over the outgoing model.

Honda’s new small family car has been designed exclusively for Europe and has been extensively tested on the region’s roads. It goes on sale during 2012.

Smoother Ride
Honda engineers concentrated a huge amount of time and effort improving ride quality and handling of the Civic, and through significant changes to the suspension set-up they have enhanced both comfort and body control.

To give customers the biggest cabin and boot space in the C-sector, the Civic retains a rear torsion beam suspension system – but the latest set-up uses clever fluid-filled compliance bushes to improve overall ride performance and handling. It has also been strengthened to give better stability, particularly at high speeds.
