Don't forget crappy styling is the main weak point of the 2012 Civic. It would be absolutely stupid of Honda not to do anything about it. I really hope the change is something similar to the refreshed TL. They turned it from a butt ugly car to a really good looking one with just some minor styling changes.
Styling was criticized but it wasn't the number one issue with the Civic. Interior material quality, soft chassis dynamics and reduced tactile performance are the main issues and have been widely criticized by many publications.
Actually, only the interior finish is the issue with the Si.... the engine is powerful enough and the handling is quite good.
