A recent report about the Honda Civic from 2016 Cars Reviews stated that the new generation of Honda Civic will be "even greater than you thought". There are reports that the 2016 model for one of Honda's most popular cars is going to be improved, refreshed, and redesigned. This is what is currently known about the Honda Civic 2016 Release Date, Specs, and Price for the LX, EX, EX-T, EX-L, and Touring editions.
Honda is planning a lot for the 10th Generation model of their Civic, and it has been "redesigned from the ground up". Some of the improvements include a new modular platform, lots of new technology, as well as a whole new upscale interior. If you go to Honda's website, you will find a lot of information on the 10th Generation of Civic, you will find that "The Future of the Civic Family" is in shadows, but it does give details about several models, which are still being called "Concept".
