11th-gen Honda Civic patent images leaked

The new Civic looks less funky and borrows design cues from the City and Accord.

Patent images of the eleventh generation Honda Civic have surfaced online revealing the sedan's updated exterior design.

The new Civic borrows a lot of design cues from other sedans in the Honda line-up including the fifth generation City and the Accord. The car features a similar front fascia with slim LED headlamps. The funky rear end with its C-shaped tail lamps has given way to a more conventional set of wraparound tail lights. It has a coupe-like roof line and the prominent shoulder line is reminiscent of the City.

The 11th generation Civic would also be offered in a hatchback body style, but it is the sedan that will arrive at our shores.

The current generation Civic is available with a 1.8-litre petrol engine producing 139 BHP and 174 Nm paired with a continuously variable transmission (CVT) and a 1.6-litre diesel engine producing 118 BHP and 300 Nm. The diesel engine comes mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox.
