-Honda’s small family hatch has a new look
-New Type R-like nose and revised alloys
-Prices start at £13,995 for the 1.4 Type S
The most obvious change is at the front, where all models get a new nose, inspired by that of the discontinued Type R hot hatch. Sporty-looking Type S models also have colour-coded sideskirts, while a new colour – Ionised Bronze – is available across the range.
Every model receives new-look alloys, too – 16-inch wheels on the 1.4-litre and 1.8 SE versions, and 17-inch designs on the 1.8 Si.
Honda has also revised the Civic’s interior in an effort to make the car more comfortable. SE and ES models are now trimmed in a mixture of fabric and Alcantara, while Si models have a leather/Alcantara mix and heated front seats.
Despite the changes, there is no increase in cost, with the range starting at £13,995 for a 1.4 Type S.
