Next Gen Honda Civic Teased, Full Reveal on Twitch
The 10th generation Honda Civic is one of the most successful sedans in its segment, but it has been around since 2016. The time has come for its successor, the 11th generation Civic to make an appearance. We already got a look at the shape of the new sedan and hatchback Civic through leaked patent documents. And now Honda say it’s time to show the rest of the car off in a teaser of the prototype.
On a twitter post, Honda shared that they would be making the 11th generation Civic prototype’s debut on Twitch, of all places. The reveal will happen on the 17th of November 2020 8pm Eastern Standard Time, or 18th November 9pm in Malaysia.
Based on the teaser video they shared on Twitter, the patent drawings were accurate. Take a look for yourself.
We only got fragmented glimpses of the new Civic, but from what we can tell, it’s a little more conservative than the outgoing model.
The LED front daytime running lights also match what we see in the patent drawings as the does clamshell hood. Compared to the 10th generation Civic it’s definitely a more mature look with longer headlights and a more intricate bumper design.
Honda maybe looking to go upmarket to catch up with the likes of the new Mazda3. But if the success of the current Civic is anything to go by, it may be that Honda customers want a product that is a little less mature looking. Only time will tell, we’re sure Honda has done their research on market trends in this particular segment. Time will tell.
Perhaps the only surprise here is that Honda are using Twitch to broadcast the reveal of the new Civic. Twitch is an Amazon-owned video streaming platform that’s skewed towards video game streaming but does stream non-video game related content too. It looks as if Honda of America are trying to capture the attention of the youth market. It’s definitely worth a try. They can always simultaneously stream it on Youtube or upload the footage there later, as most car companies end up doing anyway.
