More 2006 Honda Civic madness
More 2006 Honda Civic madness
Hondas next Civic translates better as a coupe. While we know that many of you are still undecided about the dash, these photos provide an even better angle of the layout. It does look a little goofy having the second instrument hood grow out of the top of the dash where it meets the window. It does seem very functional, because the speedometer is easily within the drivers line of sight. We wonder what will happen to the RSX now that the Civic has been redesigned. Obviously the Civic is moving up market and that Si looks like it could take sales away from the Acura RSX. Perhaps Honda plans to revise the RSX as well.

The unveiling of the Civic Concept at the 2005 Geneva Motor Show was no mistake.

It was designed to appeal to customers' emotions, with a wider and lower body that achieves a distinct sporty style.

Honda readies its pocket rocket Type R
Honda readies its pocket rocket Type R
The term 'hot hatch' is bandied about a fair bit these days, but perhaps only a few cars out there are worthy of the title. The V6 Renault Clio is one of them, as is the turbo-charged Starlet GT, though they only sell them in Japan. Well, let's add another to the list as Honda finishes work on the amazing new Civic Type R. The Honda Civic hatch hasn't been embraced by the general public as much as the previous models. This could be due to many things, but the styling is usually always the first aspect of the car to be critisized.
