|Judging from these exclusive interior shots, it looks like the Honda Civic's two-tiered dashboard design will finally become a thing of the past.
With a concept coupe confirmed by spy shots, and further solidified by leaked patent sketches, the exterior look of the tenth-generation Honda Civic is not open to much debate. The interior, however, was still a complete unknown--until now. We just managed to track down a prototype for the all-new, tenth-generation Civic sedan, and caught him at rest just long enough to grab the world's first look at much of the all-new car's dashboard design. We see a new cockpit configuration with Civic's gauge cluster now covered by a single, sculpted hood, flanked angular hood vents that lead into a new, simple center stack arrangement. The fussiness of the current Civic's dual-level array of instrumentation gives way to something cleaner and sportier in its layout.
This prototype was outfitted with Honda's continuously variable transmission, while a new six-speed manual will also be offered, which should help to deliver on the company's promised return of the "fun-to-drive Civic." The center stack leads down to a cavernous storage binnacle, to the nicely placed shift lever, and on to another another storage spot. A long, fabric-covered arm rest appears to have room for additional storage below, making for what appears to be a space-efficient layout.
