The 2016 Honda Civic Sedan was officially revealed in the US last month and it looks like media in the region are starting to get their hands on the tenth-gen car. Here, gives us a walkaround of the Civic’s exterior and interior, with a demo of the head unit and instrument panel.

Yes, this is the new Civic Sedan despite the unfamiliar fastback shape. There’s still a boot, even if the lid is extremely short. LED headlights with LED daytime running lights flank a grille with a thick chrome bar, and the wheels look pretty similar to the City’s alloys in design. They’re not the same items though, with five lugs and measuring 17 inches in diameter.

The rear end is dominated by those distinctive C-shaped LED tail lamps, and there’s a prominent integrated spoiler with a slim lip on it.

The new Civic is 51 mm wider and 25 mm lower, with a wheelbase that’s longer by 30.5 mm. Here, we can see the enlarged boot (by 74 litres) and the rear quarters, where legroom is said to have been increased by 51 mm. The cabin is 105 litres larger.

Up front, the video shows us the Civic’s new digital instrument cluster, which features a central rev counter with a a digital speedo within. It pans to the steering, which has buttons for phone functions, adaptive cruise control and lane keeping assist. The volume control is a departure from the norm; is that a button or do you slide your thumb on it? The latter, perhaps.

The seven-inch HD touchscreen head unit is familiar in design, but it incorporates feed from Honda LaneWatch here, and has Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatability. Also seen is the gear lever area, which has an Econ button and an electronic parking brake. Auto air con, too, with seat warmers for the US.

This new generation will spawn coupe (previewed by that green NYC concept) and hatchback versions, and possibly a wagon for Europe, but this is the car that Asean will be getting in the near future. There will be a Type R variant for this bodystyle, too. What’s your impression?
