For the first time since the early 90's we migth get some interesting looking designs for the Civic.

I see hints of the wildly sexy, small (by North American standards) Alfa Romeo's in these lines. This would definitely be a good thing.

It may be ugly but it's still better than a conversative design.
Go Honda!

100% agree!! There have been so many complaints about Honda's lack of style (less the S2K an Acura line) lately. I would much rather have them try to be different than be another Toyota clone. Who knows, maybe the fake lines are masking some good stuff?

Also, doesn't that look like side blinkers on the mirrors?

This is the right direction to go.... I am very excited.. Honda is shedding some of its conservatism.

Small cars should not be scaled-down big cars...

The 2 look nothing alike to me. The Alfa has a much lower roofline and the windshield is not as slanted, more vertical compared to the possible spy-shot Civic.

It is still a production version for testing purposes only. Don't assume though that this would be the actual one.


It's kinda weird looking because it has the headlights of an Acura TSX (Honda Accord JDM/Euro), the doors of a merc, the mirrors of a Smart Car and a rear that I don't know who built it.


Not bad but still could do better and be more original.
