Not exactly. What we have here and in most of the SE Asian countries is the "JDM" model. I dont think they can afford to have country-specific models such as IDM, PDM, MDM, TDM, etc

These countries get a JDM model. They are called JDM models because the model was designed and sold in the Japanese Domestic Market first. If the Civic gets an axe in the JDM market, there will no longer be a JDM Civic. So the next version to come out in other markets won't be designed for JDM. There are certain qualities in JDM designs that make it desirable. With that gone, we'll get USDM or much worse, Thai cars.

Of course, food for thought - the JDM Civic is the Acura CSX, a car designed and built by Acura Canada. It was adopted as the JDM Civic.

Hi Vivek, id still wait for the new civic. It may not be as revolutionary as the old civic, but it will certainly be newer and upgraded. The music system is similar to the honda city, which reads ipod data and isnt just a basic aux in. The info displays will be newer. The current civic will lose value very fast in the used car market.

I think its not right. Canada always had a entry level Acura (it was Acura EL before) based on Civic. Base version has 2.0L RSX engine. A Type S with Si's engine is available too.

One might think its JDM Civic based on the tail lights (they had to distinguish it from north american Civic). Its very nice to drive and interiors are at Acura level.

The sketch released by Honda does resemble to the spy-shots of the Civic posted earlier, atleast from the front. But, still the biggest gripe is the uninspiring rear-end design.

Guys the official unveiling of the New Civic Prototype (Sedan and Coupe) has been confirmed for the 11th and 12th of Jan, 2011 at the Detroit Motor Show. Finally we will get to see the car without any camo. Looking forward to Sid getting us the first images of the car. I simply cant wait

Honda design team did a tremendous job with the current city. They should not over do the design work.

Honda just add things that are important. Nice shocks, nice xenon headlamps, a great music system and comfortable yet sport seats. Afterall this is the car for the young guns. Dont convert the car from dude to dud.

well done sir. Ive been trying to logon to the webcast for so long. The sedan looks way too similar to the outgoing model ! Is it me or does it seem smaller? Im sure the JDM/Asia version will be slightly longer (bigger bumpers and grill)

WOW! the car looks hot in closeup mode. There is a lot of muscle on the car.

Looks like they were completely clueless on what to do after the last Civic. This one looks like a grown up City. Also the front looks like a Kia Forte. The rear looks so old school & ugly.

The plan, it appears, is to re-designate the City and charge Civic prices for it.

Much better than expected. Will take used to but this evolutionary design looks good. Expect a better looking rear end for ASEAN markets, a from me for the sedan. But that SI coupe looks dowdy with large rear overhangs.Pics taken from netcarshow.
