11-12-2012, 12:50 PM
When the redesigned-for-2012 Civic received a so-so reception from critics, Honda decided to make a most unconventional move: Attempt to address the criticisms head-on with a hurried refresh, the results of which you can see above. The car pictured here is the updated 2013 Civic sedan, which Honda is previewing ahead of its debut at [...]

I think it looks pretty nice, except the rear tails. I'm curious to see how they fixed the interior though.

one simply does not "leak" cad drawings...

Looks a little better up front, and still way too Camry out back. But Honda neutered the Civic years ago, so the world should be used to it by now.

It looks like Corolla, that looks like a Sentra, that looks like a Impreza and so fourth... IMO

I like it. But I don't really like that the tail lights go under the trunk also.
11-12-2012, 03:53 PM
I really liked the '12 tail lights. I will like to see the new 2013s in person though.

I don't know since the 2005 model and up I have been iffy about the civic
11-12-2012, 04:15 PM
It's like they've been ashamed to show off that it's a Civic lately, and give it hackneyed design cues. At least this one has interesting wheels.
11-12-2012, 04:23 PM
It doesn't look too different to me. Some changes but nothing impressive. Honda has become quite unimaginative.
11-12-2012, 04:34 PM
Doesn't look to different. Still a pretty boring looking car to me.

Marysville has not put out a Civic I have liked in 20 years. Now the e-spec ones are pretty darn nice.

I'm trying to contain my enthusiasm.

Looks like a miniature accord lol

honda civic in front... scion TC in the rear????[giddy]
11-13-2012, 08:42 PM
Still looks like a noisy mommy car.
11-13-2012, 08:45 PM
looks great, if the SI version adds a bittttttt more coolness factor, I might trade my GTI in for one, especially since Ford hasn't given us any new info ont eh Fiesta ST

Just another cookie cutter ricer.

Just another cookie cutter ricer.
More or less. It just looks the same as everything else.

11-14-2012, 01:03 PM
not bad but the Tail lights [thumbd]

Its the same thing that happened when Ford released the 2008 Focus. A lot of people responded that it was too ugly so in 2009 Ford updated the design with coupe styling options and got rid of that awful chrome vent. Anyone remember the over-advertised announcement of the 2009 Focus on American Idol? (http://www.at.ford.com/news/cn/ArticleArchives/27129.aspx)
Honda realized that the 2012 Civic wasn't hitting the right buttons with customers so they have made some minor changes. I think its a successful change that translates better within the current offerings of compact cars.

The front end doesn't look to bad but the rest looks like it could have been made by Frigidaire.

The civic is ok haven't seen a good design in a while. I haven't been a fan of honda design for a while actually. I will admit the 2013 accord don't look too shabby. I bank at honda and the bank is on honda of marysville property. This was parked next to me with mfg tags, when I came out a couple of weeks ago.

At least Honda is responding to criticisms. That shows hope for the company IMO. On the subject of the new Accord... I do not like the LED running lights. I'm really sick of LED running lights. Audis are a dime a dozen here in NorCal and now other car companies are aping the Audi look. The LED DRL lost its novelty quickly.
11-19-2012, 01:19 AM
LED running lights are the best solution because they require very little power and the visibility/safety is so much improved over traditional DRL.
Get used to it.

I know it makes practical sense for the manufacturers. Doesn't mean I have to like it.
