The tenth generation 2016 Honda Civic sedan will be unveiled on September, says a report from Automotive News. The compact sedan would be unveiled during simultaneous events in Detroit and Los Angeles in the USA. This will merely be a preview though, as complete details or pricing won’t be released at these events.
According to the report, specific details like how much power and torque the new 1.5-liter VTEC turbocharged four-cylinder gasoline produces, fuel economy figures, pricing, etc. will be released later. Honda has confirmed though, that transmission options for the 1.5-liter turbocharged engine will include a short-shifting 6-speed manual transmission, and a new, sportier and more efficient continuously variable transmission (CVT).
Details on the coupe version, the sedan & coupe versions’ Si variant, as well as the hatchback and its Type R variant won’t be out before next year, suggests the report. The sedan’s unveiling in September will be simply about the exterior and interior, while the powertrain details will be announced in October before it goes on sale this fall.
The North American-spec 2016 Honda Civic sedan will be built in Greensburg, Indiana in USA, and in Alliston, Ontario in Canada. The Coupe version and the Si variant in both bodystyles will be built in the latter location.
