After four years, the Japanese car maker Honda has finally revealed the 10th generation of its C-segment popular vehicle. The 2016 Honda Civic was announced just weeks ago and we are not getting some of the details about the popular hatchback.
For starters, we now finally have the full palette of colors for the exterior and the interior. And while the interior color choices are somewhat boring and predictable, the exterior brings more fun.
For the exterior of the 2016 Civic, Honda is offering nine paint colors, including five new. The carryovers are Taffeta White (which is limited only for the basic 2.0-liter model), Crystal Black Pearl, White Orchid Pearl and Modern Steel Metallic. All of these four colors are carryovers from the previous Civic sedan. Another carryover is the Rallye Red paint color for the exterior, which was previously seen on the two-door coupe version of the Civic.
As for the new additions to the color palette, we have the Aegean Blue Metallic that Honda borrowed from the Fit, as well as the Lunar Silver Metallic that was previously seen on the Honda Accord. The 2016 Honda Civic will also be available in Burgundy Night Pearl and Cosmic Blue Metallic. Aside from the Taffeta White, all other colors will be available for every trim of the 2016 Civic.
The exterior colors can be paired with an appropriate interior color, giving you lots of options to choose from. Interior colors of the 2016 Civic include black, ivory and gray.
The 2016 Honda Civic is the 10th generation of one of the most popular vehicles in the US and the world. And color options are not the only “new” aspect of the Civic. The Japanese car maker has also remade the design of the popular hatchback. Some of the design changes include addition of LED lights for the headlights, new chrome grille on the front, boomerang style taillights, as well as fastback style profile. All in all, the 2016 Honda Civic looks sportier and more dynamic than the previous, boring ninth generation.
Another innovation has been done in the engine section. The basic engine option is the 2.0-liter engine with four cylinders. However, Honda will also offer a new and innovative 1.5-liter gasoline engine with turbocharging.
