Honda Civic’s new ‘sport’ concept gets ‘Sporty’ new paint scheme
Honda’s newest vehicle is the newest in the company’s sporty design philosophy, and that means it’s getting its new “sporty” paint scheme.
The Honda Civic, with a starting price of $22,700, was unveiled on Thursday at the Tokyo Motor Show, a show for cars, trucks, SUVs, and motorcycles that features an emphasis on design.
The Civic will be the latest Honda vehicle to get a new “Sporty Car” moniker, according to Honda.
It joins the likes of the CR-V, CR-Z, and Civic Hybrid, and the “Sprint” nameplate that’s been applied to other models like the Fit and Accord.
While the Civic’s sports car look is based on the popular Honda Civic GT, the “sprint” moniker will be applied to the Civic as well, according a Honda press release.
The Civic Sport Concept, which is scheduled to debut in 2019, will feature a sporty and sleek appearance, and features a “Sway-Shifting” “G-Bar” and “Swing-Shifters” “L-Bar,” according to the release.
It’s also designed with more aerodynamic “sparcage” at the front and rear, as well as a “thumb-shaped” hood.
The design will be similar to the Honda Fit, a sedan that debuted in 2019 and is expected to be the next-generation Honda vehicle.
