2016 Honda Civic Spotted Uncovered Before its Official Debut

Thanks to CivicX, we now have our first glimpse at the 2016 Honda Civic sedan just days before its official unveiling. The model was first spotted parked on the streets of Ann Arbor, Mich., in plain sight.

Although it's not a huge departure from the styling norms of today's small sedans, this new Civic could actually be considered radical for a conservative automaker like Honda. The pictures reveal a flatter grille as well as bold C-shaped taillights, a short rear deck, and a sloped roof. The new model also looks considerably longer than its predecessor.

Honda surprised everyone last spring when it unveiled a radical Civic Concept at the New York auto show. We see a little resemblance in this sedan, with the taillights using a similar design despite not spanning the full width of the trunk. We'll have to wait and see if the concept influenced the production Civic coupe.

Either way, the Civic lineup promises more excitement for its tenth generation. Honda will add turbo power and will introduce new Type R and five-door Civics for the U.S. market. Meanwhile, Honda has axed the hybrid and natural gas Civics, placing a greater emphasis on the car's sporty new character.

We'll learn more about the Civic sedan next week when the model makes its official debut on September 16. After that, the Civic sedan is expected to go on sale this fall, followed later by the hatch and the coupe.
