More spyshots of the upcoming 2016 Honda Civic sedan have surfaced on the Internet! Sourced from the CivicX forums, these photos were snapped at a petrol station in Texas and give us a slightly better look at what we should expect from the tenth-generation model.

The mule in question matches up to the patent images that we’ve seen before – there’s the mask-like front end, strong front haunches, sloping fastback-like roofline and C-shaped tail lights (we expect those to encroach into the bootlid). Interestingly, the prototype appears to be wearing LED headlights as seen on the concept; as our top-spec Toyota Corolla Altis already has LED items, could our Civic follow suit?

There was also a current-model Civic next to it, providing a great opportunity to compare the two directly; the new car certainly looks larger, more distinctive and more sophisticated than its predecessor. That’s great news, particularly as the ninth-gen Civic did not exactly have the strongest of starts – complaints in the US forced Honda to make quite deep-set changes only one and a half years into production.

Aside from the exterior of the car, we’ve also seen the interior in previous spyshots – from the looks of it, the Civic will ditch the futuristic tiered dashboard used since the eighth-generation FD for a more conventional design that takes more than a few cues from the City. So, what do you think – does Honda look to have a winner with the new Civic?
