2012 Honda Civic Concept photos

Honda revealed its new 2012 Civic Si coupe and sedan concepts at the 2011 Detroit Motor Show. The re-design of what will be the ninth generation of the Civic will make the car smaller, lighter and more efficient. The new design offers a bolder, sleeker appearance than past Civics, yet still retains the style of earlier models. Buyers will have plenty of options when the new line of Civic becomes available in the spring. Along with the conventional sedan and coupe models, Honda will also offer “Si” performance versions along with hybrid and natural-gas variants. Hybrids will feature a new lithium-ion battery cell, and gasoline models will use Eco-Assist to help less-efficient drivers get better fuel economy.
