10th Generation 2016 Honda Civic Officially Revealed
So the most awaited moment is here. The day everyone was looking forward to. Honda has officially released details on the world debut of the 10th generation Honda Civic at an exclusive event in Los Angeles USA. Honda event was full of lights & dance along with a live performance by famous music band “Night Riots” and it was streamed live on YouTube.
I had an opportunity to view the live stream as being on East Coast it was just after dinner for me and I watched it as a delicious desert.
For the launch video of the 10th gen Honda Civic, click here.
2016 Honda Civic was designed and produced by Honda LA design studio. This is the first time a Civic was designed outside Japan. The new car will be wider and lower and on Honda’s new global platform. Much quieter and smoother on road than previous generations. Compared to the current model, the 2016 Honda Civic Sedan is nearly 2 inches wider and 1 inch lower with a 1.2-inch longer wheelbase. First in compact class vehicles, LED headlights and tail lights are introduced for the first time. According to Honda, they wanted to give new generation a new bolder and dynamic styling with sporty proportions altogether; ‘It’s Civic Re-Imagined‘. As per press brief the new Civic will be initially available as sedan and later coupe while a SI sedan and Type R models will follow later.
At launch two engine options for US market will be available. A 2.0L naturally aspirated, VTEC 4 cylinder as well as first time a turbocharged 1.5L engine. A CVT transmission will be standard. As per Honda press release Civic Sedans in EX-T, EX-L trims and Touring trims will be powered by a 1.5-liter direct-injected turbocharged 16-valve DOHC inline-4 with power output of 173hp, mated with newly designed CVT while LX and EX trims will be powered by a 2.0-liter, 16-valve, DOHC i-VTEC 4-cylinder engine with power output of 158hp; which as per Honda is the most powerful base engine ever offered in a Civic. The 2.0L engine will be offered with either a 6-speed manual (LX trim) or continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT).
The 2016 Honda Civic Sedan will have tons of new safety features based on Honda’s Sensing suite of advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies, including Collision Mitigation Braking, Road Departure Mitigation and, for the first time in a Honda, Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow.
The interior is brand new for Civic line up. As we mentioned in our previous blogs; the split level cluster is no more but a new sporty TFT digital cluster will be available. A 7″ touch screen Apple Carplay/Android Auto is introduced with iOS or Play Store compatibility. Overall new Civic will truly inspire the Honda lovers due to its impressive exterior and interior design and features. John Mendel, Executive Vice president of American Honda Motor Co, Inc said :
“This tenth-generation Civic is quite simply the most ambitious remake of Civic we’ve ever done. We are bringing more new technology and innovative thinking to Civic than ever before to establish a new benchmark for fun-to-drive performance, fuel efficiency, safety performance and refinement in the compact class.”
For now please have a look at the new Civic. We will share more details as it gets available. No information on price as of now but expected to remain same as 9th generation Civic in USA. Click through the gallery for all the photos, below.

Shut up and take my money !
Wowwwwwwww !!!!! this is awwsome (Y)
I think Honda Atlas will launch this new shape in Pakistan by 2020,
keeping in view their lethargic performance in launching new Honda city in Pakistan
Well then finally Civic will have an edge over Toyota in terms of fuel economy.
Front fender and rear tail lights are oogliezzz!!!
I think you didnt use 9th gen.
2016 end for sure
This is great.. Only the rear looks a bit odd but will be able to jugde it properly once its on the streets..
well i am getting rid of corrolla now and getting this…
He means that 1.5l turbo will use less fuel than 1.8l grande!
1.5l will definitely have an edge.
The new angle lights would definitely edge this beauty on Grande.
what choice do we have apart from civic and corolla? there is no competition. i prefer civic coz it has immobilizer. atleast i have peace of mind when i park it somewhere that nobody will take it away unless he actually puts it into a truck. but that doesn’t mean i like local made cars. their making quality is shit as compared to their imported varients.
I hope Honda introduce the new models both of Civic and City before they lose the market
no worries people we well get the shitty plastic and metal and crappy suspension version, but man i love those honda designers.
only if the their engineers could fit a better suspension system!
Designer too has to take the blame. He/She has screwed the back.
Pakistan most likely won’t get the Turbo engine…they don’t run well on poor quality fuel. 87RON fuel will kill the turbo in no time.
wow! a piece of art
They have reduced ground clearance 1 Inch. Am I correct?
do u really believe Honda’s gonna give u all these features. Its Pakistan bro.
dont get excited bro. they wont introduce the turbo charged engine. As far as i guess 1.8l prosmatec will be launched.
grande still has n edge over this.
Turbo won’t launch here and. You are wrong. Turbocharged engines use more fuel. In city you would hardly get 8-9km per liter but 1.5 would come handy on highways as on highways you don’t need to accelerate more often so you would get good average. But it would be nightmare to drive in a city like karachi or interior Lahore.
cool car………Honda Atlas is requested to raise the car height once they launch it in Pakistan in 2016
I have had latest Toyota Corolla Grande for last few months, along with
an another GLi. Worst cars I ever owned. I sold both of them and got one
civic and one 1.5 city. I am much happier. I am going to buy this new
Civic for sure. Love the design and regardless of what we get here, I am
sure it will be a good car.
Has Honda Atlas made any statement of when it will launch in Pakistan. Not speculation but actual hard proof.
