TOV Exclusive! 2006 Honda Civic Sedan and Coupe Spied!

Participate in our Civic Styling Opinion Poll

Hot on the heels of the '06 Accord spy photos, sharp eyed TOV readers managed to capture these slightly disguised '06 Civic test mules driving on I-75 through Georgia. Special thanks to Pannone/Scott/Eaton for these exclusive pictures. While the coupe should be familiar looking, these are the clearest shots we've seen of the '06 Civic Sedan yet. Unfortunately the photographers were unable to get a good clear shot of the front end of the car. The one shot we have here was heavily cropped and retouched as it came from a photo where the car was very distant.

*The Temple of VTEC has PAID for the exclusive rights to these spy photos from Pannone/Scott/Eaton. Please do NOT copy/hotlink any of these photos or text. Please simply "copy & paste" a link to this news story*"

Here's a reminder of what we know about the '06 Honda Civic so far:

  • at least 200hp, a 6MT, and a limited slip differential for the Si
  • retain a strut setup up front, though the rear suspension is said to be slightly revised.
  • expecting 17" wheels standard on the Si with 215/45-17 high performance "summer" tires
  • base models get a new 1.8L 140hp SOHC i-VTEC motor
  • upper models possibly getting 155-160hp versions of the same motor
  • automatic climate control will be offered in upper models (including Si)

Announcement:

The Temple of VTEC recently submitted a proposal to Honda requesting a Civic Si to build up as a project car. We've recently learned that the proposal was approved and we should be receiving our car some time in early August. The TOV Project Si will make its world debut alongside the production Civic Si models at this year's SEMA show in Las Vegas. Watch for updates this fall!
