Honda has revealed the 11th-generation Civic sedan, which is more conservatively styled than its predecessor.
But before we get too far ahead of ourselves, it’s worth reiterating the new Civic sedan won’t be sold in Australia, with the future local line-up to only consist of the hatchback body-style, including the Type R performance flagship.
That said, the sedan still gives us an idea of what to expect from the hatchback when it makes its debut “later this year”, according to Honda.

However, the brand has only release one image of the sedan thus far, a front three-quarter angle of its exterior, with a full reveal instead scheduled for 11.00am on Thursday, April 29.
In the meantime, we can see the sedan doesn’t look too different to last November’s Civic Prototype. In fact, they’re near identical, with their alternative trim likely linked to their differing specifications.
In a press release, Honda said: “Inspired by the timeless design and human-focused values of past Civics, designers and engineers prioritised Honda's human-centred design philosophy, which maximises the total environment for the driver and passengers while minimising the space needed for mechanical components.
“The goal is to increase the driver's ability to enjoy the car safely. The result is a sporty new look and an all-new simple and sporty interior that advances essential Civic values of uncluttered design, simple ergonomics and exceptional visibility.”
