2012 Civic Sedan Interior Spied!
 Date: September 20, 2010 10:56
 Submitted by:  JeffX
 Source: Brenda Priddy & Company
 Credibility Rating: Not Specified


Brenda's crew finally grabbed photos giving us our first peek at the 2012 Civic's revised dashboard. As you can see, the two-tiered design theme makes a return, but basically everything has been completely redesigned.



SPIED INSIDE & OUT: '12 Honda Civic!!

Honda engineers had been trying very hard to hide the interior of the 2012 Civic from us, but today we got lucky and can REVEAL the next-gen interior!

Our photos show that the center stack now appears more oriented towards the driver. We can also see the dual-pod setup on the dash has undergone a redesign. Almost all the audio and HVAC controls are new as well as the air vents and the steering wheel.

Originally, the 9th gen Civic was set to debut in the Summer of 2010 as a 2011 model, but once CAFE regulations changed and the auto industry hit hard times in 2009, Honda had to rethink things. Rumors stated Honda originally wanted to make the Civic larger, but as you can see from the photos, the overall size of the 2012 Civic will remain largely unchanged.

While the camouflage is pretty heavy, we can see peeks at a new grille and headlights. The front end looks more upright overall as well. The doors also have some fresh character lines.

The current Civic has a 1.8L 4-cylinder, however, rumors are floating around that the base motor may get bumped to 2.0L. No rumors yet on what might be lurking under the Si's hood.
