2013 Civic styling honed to make the segment’s best-selling car even better
TORRANCE, Calif., Nov., 12, 2012 – Honda today revealed the first
look at the much-anticipated 2013 Honda Civic Sedan, in advance of its
debut at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show on November 29. The refined styling
of the 2013 Civic Sedan, which goes on sale at Honda dealerships on
November 29, will encompass a host of safety, feature, comfort, chassis and
interior styling enhancements that will further define the top-selling
Civic as the best car in the compact class.
The more upscale and premium styling of the 2013 Civic Sedan’s front
end includes a new open-mouth lower bumper with a horizontal chrome accent
and a sportier, black honeycomb mesh grille, anchored by new integrated fog
lights on upper trims. The grille is flanked by new clear-lens corner
lights to provide a more premium look. The 2013 Civic’s more sculpted front
end flows into a new, more deeply faceted hood, complemented by a
collection of sharp new wheel designs.
In back, a new rear bumper design and new rear trunk lid are capped
by a clean, horizontal chrome trim piece. The all-new design of the
jewel-like taillights now carries into the trunk face, providing a more
finished and upscale look. The rear bumper features integrated reflector
treatments and a new lower diffuser panel finished with a honeycomb mesh
“The 2013 Honda Civic exterior refinements infuse Civic with a more
youthful, premium style. Coupling these with additional changes beneath
will ensure that Civic maintains its top-ranked status,” said Vicki Poponi,
assistant vice president of product planning for American Honda.
Heading into 2013 with styling and content additions, the Civic’s
fun-to-drive nature and core attributes of safety, spaciousness and fuel
efficiency remain intact. As the compact segment’s retail sales leader, the
Honda Civic continues as the benchmark for consumers looking for the smart
purchase in a very competitive segment.
