There are some changes in the foglamps area on bumpers, Check out they are bit camouflaged.

IMO, more than a face-lift, fixing the ground clearance/soft suspension problems is important. Civic is still a looker and interiors still has that panache

This is a ploy to increase prices. What facelift?

I tried my best but it was not enough to spot any facelift,
Yes its a ploy to bring attention back to civic and increase price as usual.

What is the point of a facelift wwhen one is hardpressed to notice the changes. It is better not to have changes at all rather than go in for something like this. It may however give Honda an opportunity to tweak the prices at a time when the car is losing marketshare to Carolla Altis and the Skoda Laura.

Looks like a half hearted attempt done to me. I guess the R&D engineers were hard pressed on time

Looks like the biggest change is the bigger H logo! It truly reflects their growing ego... . In the next face lift they may actually raise it over the hood like the merc!

Nothing exciting in the facelift but knowing honda, pricelist will definitely get excited.

I feel Honda's are headed for a Price lift than Face lift.

Red plates are for temp and trade certificates. TC is for them to use until registration.
