When it comes to the next generation Honda Civic, we’ve been getting a lot of previews. We’ve seen a concept and we’ve seen patent drawings, but the interior has been a question mark so far. Not anymore – here’s a first view at what the interior of the next generation Honda Civic will look like.

It looks like Honda will be abandoning the Honda Civic’s two-tiered dashboard design used in the previous two generations. Honda isn’t quite abandoning the idea – it’s used in other cars like the Honda Jade, but it appears that the Civic’s global clientele want a more traditional dash layout instead?

The new Civic’s instrument panel is now covered by a single, sculpted hood. The simple centre stack arrangement meets it in a way similiar to the Honda City. We can see a large storage area below the centre stack. A relatively short shifter knob is used, which the Civic has been employing the past two cars. The shift pattern looks like a CVT gearbox. No hand brake lever here – it’s been replaced by an electric version.
