Honda New Civic Concept Design Sketch image

Honda revealed a design sketch for the next Civic concept, which will make its debut at the Detroit auto show in January. The production version of the ninth-generation 2012 Civic, based on the revealed concept, will go on sale in the spring.

The American version of 2012 Honda Civic concept will be slightly different from the global version of the car. The 2012 Honda Civic that is likely to be available in both coupe and sedan variant is likely to be sportier than its existing model.

The new Civic will face competition from a redesigned Ford Focus, which also goes on sale early next year, and an all-new Chevrolet Cruze, which arrived in showrooms a couple of months ago in the United States.
