For those awaiting the new Civic, my humble suggestion, just pick a CITY!!!!!
Honestly, this car isn't worth the wait, and present model Civic reborn is gonna last well into the next 5-7 years, if this is the piece that's gonna roam the Pak streets from next year or so!
My observations, whether agreed upon or not:
1) The rear is very much "CITY" like!! Raised with a heavy bumper and tail lights just like the 2005 City! You gonna have to look carefully for the "CIVIC" logo plate to distinguish!!
2) Front side looks are neither impressive! Someone here on the site mentioned somewhere that present model reborn looks like a "fat *****"! Well, perhaps, but this one looks like a smiling old "Baba", retiring in a rocking chair !!!! I feel, the front profile change is kind of switching away from original Honda lines.
3) Interior dashboard/console re-adjustments are despicable, at the best!!
Remember, more than the front passenger, it's the damn driver who needs the most space!!
Here, with the cramping up of the console with an angular twist towards the driver side, the front passenger may find more ease and space, whereas the driver himself will get cramped up, relatively, and especially in contrast to present model Civic.
May I add, it's cabin, not a damn cockpit, and this angular twisting wasn't really needed here, for this "sci-fi" kind of outlook, I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be feeling very comfortable with an angularly twisted kind of look of the interiors in front of me.
We all have our own choices/preferences, but humbly, present model Civic is way better looking, sportier and more of a "Honda" than what's coming up, and may I just add, I'm no Honda owner, so my impressions should not be considered as biased.
My suggestion, take more of Reborn, it's gonna last for another 5 year period, no doubts.
Finally congrats to the owner brother above, let's hear more from you on the actual drive.
