Marginal changes here and there. Atleast they did not spoil it.

Can somebody give me a lens to spot the changes? If I had seen this pic anywhere else I would have let it pass as the current Honda Civic!

Nothing so special on exteriors.I don't expect much from inside as well.
Just a minor facelift.

Oh man, that must be the funniest (and most pointless) facelist in history. The pics show that just the front grill has been changed. On a second look, they've camouflaged the tail lights so they look like the current ones. Look closely at the reverse lights and you can see that they look odd.

The front under spoiler that looks like the Type-R is missing. That is supposed to be standard in the facelift.

Actually since there is not much facelift, I suppose it is all about getting back the attention to the Civic. After the marketing starts 'New Facelifted Civic' that is.

Oh yeah, the headlights are blacked out from the factory instead of chrome.

There is a reason why they didn't even bother to camouflage the car!

The red no plates is the sign of a car under testing. so no chance of it being a modded car.
