Honda’s best selling Civic is set to get a few mild tweaks to its styling in a couple of months. According to Honda’s engineers, the design itself is so futuristic, that they saw little need to tinker with it. The detail changes, though small, contribute to make the Civic that little bit more dynamic to look at.
To start with, the nose has been tweaked, with the grille now sporting a five-sided geometric edge instead of the earlier ‘smiley’ outline, and the front bumper has re-profiled edges and fog lamps.
At the rear, the tail-lamp elements retain the ‘after-burner’ look, albeit with squared-out edges instead of the earlier round elements.
The refreshed Civic is expected to sell at a slight premium over the current model when it goes on sale here, and will be a typical Honda mid-life tweak before an all-new model expected in 2011.
