Spied on the street: 2012 Honda Civic

Brenda just sent in her first batch of 2012 Civic sedan spy shots and this is what she has to say:

The 9th generation Honda Civic has just begun testing in the desert and we've been shooting photos of a prototype all day!

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.

While the current Civic has a 1.8L 4-cylinder, rumors are floating around that the base motor may get bumped to 2.0L.

Thankfully, we hear the "Si" models will continue. Watch for production of the new Civic to start in the Spring or Summer of 2011.
