Time for a facelift already? Sure, truly. Immediately’s Eleventh-generation Honda Civic was revealed within the US in April 2021, earlier than occurring sale there two months later. Which means it’s shut to a few years previous in that market, which is minor mannequin change time. The Civic FE was launched in Malaysia in January 2022.
That is the US-market 2025 Honda Civic Hybrid within the nation’s high Sport Touring trim degree, uploaded by American Honda in its 2024 enterprise outlook launch. North America will now get a Civic Hybrid for each sedan and hatchback bodystyles, and the electrified variant will comprise about 40% of the Civic gross sales when it launches this summer season.
For us, it offers us a great first have a look at the 2025 Civic facelift. We’ve seen it already truly, simply that we didn’t know. The entrance finish of the automotive you see right here matches the Civic RS Prototype that we confirmed you from Tokyo Auto Salon 2024, that includes a thicker grille that reduces the FE’s distinctive giant ‘brow’. Honeycomb mesh replaces the present traces, matching the decrease grille.
Talking of that, the ‘mouth’ seems to be extra protruding, however it’s actually wider, and the facet fog lamp housings aren’t any extra, changed by a vertical vent on the fringe of the bumper – the latter offers it a extra Sort R look. These seven-spoke two-tone alloys look actually massive – 19-inch maybe?
We additionally get an in depth up shot of the rear, which appears to be like to have revised LED signatures. Honda’s US arm didn’t launch any picture of the inside, which might in all probability be left largely intact because the design is contemporary, and good. How would this facelift appear like as a hatchback? The TAS 2024 Civic RS Prototype is a hatch as there’s no sedan there.
So, when will we get the Civic FE facelift right here in ASEAN and Malaysia. In case you comply with the timeline of the pre-facelift, we ought to be getting it half a yr later, which factors to early 2025, or late 2024 on the earliest. What do you consider the Civic’s new face?
