It really hasn’t been much long since Honda gave us the new-gen Honda Civic, which didn’t quite look all that new-gen to be very honest. The new car hasn’t even made it to India yet, and the Japanese carmaker is already testing a facelift. You heard it right, the lukewarm response to the car’s exterior styling has made Honda get proactive and restyle the car in an early stage of its life.
So what’s new? Well, we don’t expect much to change under the bonnet, but the car features some cosmetic changes. Some touching up is evident at the grille, with the head-lamps now looking somewhat Accor-dish. Honda have further tried to remove the annoying resemblance with the Civic’s earlier version with new tail-lamps and some new treatment done to the boot-lid.
The new gen Civic turned out to be as much a lullaby as its previous generation car was a rock song. We are not sure whether Honda is making any changes to that driver biased console or any other bits inside, but the exteriors are being worked upon for sure. And knowing how disappointed we were with the new-gen car upon its debut, it really cannot be a bad thing. Watch this space for more updates on the car as they emerge.
