The Honda Civic has been a staple of the North American tuning and customising scene, and Honda’s display at the 2016 SEMA showcase will further cement that fact, with five customised examples to be seen this year.

First is the yellow Civic Coupe built by SEMA regular TJIN Edition, with aesthetic and mechanical changes applied. The front lip spoiler is by Apollo Top One Auto Part, while the side skirts and rear bumper are Honda Factory Performance Accessories.

Under the skin, the Civic Coupe’s lowered ride height comes courtesy of BC Racing BR Series coilover suspension, rolling on Rotiform OZT wheels with Baer brakes behind them. Inside, Katzkin leather and suede trim continue the yellow-and-black theme.


Mad Industries took an approach similar to TJIN’s with their own Civic Coupe (blue one above) in focusing on handling and appearance, with carbon-fibre kit from Carbon 2 Carbon, and a specially crafted rear bumper with a single, centrally-exiting exhaust.

Suspension features Eibach Pro Kit springs, while Toyo T1R tyres are mounted on Rotiform QLB wheels. On the interior, the dashboard receives select pieces of blue trim, while black leather and suede seats gain blue stitching.

The sole sedan in the line-up here, Meguiar’s Civic X Concept also gets the wheels-and-lowering treatment. Coilover suspension has been installed and the car rolls on SSR mesh wheels, while a carbon-fibre bonnet replaces the standard item with black accents on the mirrors and door handles to complement it.

Inside, black and red Alcantara features on the interior, while an upgraded sound system comprises mulitple amplifiers and subwoofers – check out the Honda logo-shaped enclosure. Engine mods courtesy of Greddy are to be found as well, with a front-mount intercooler visible through the front bumper. No engine details are available though.

Racing isn’t far from Honda’s mind, as evidenced by the race-prepped Civic Coupe that will be eligible for race events in America and elsewhere in the world. An FIA-certified roll cage is installed, as is a very large rear wing.

This car will make its racing debut at the 25 Hours of Thunderhill in December, while race-specification bodywork, engines, transmissions and more will be made available to racing teams via Honda Performance Development (HPD).


Rounding off the group is a Civic hatchback installed with the full range of products from the Honda Factory Performance range, which includes a bodykit comprising front and rear bumper lips, side skirts and rear wing. Also included are new 19-inch wheels and new brake discs behind them, with HFP badges to go with the components installed on the car.

The SEMA Show takes place this week at the Las Vegas Convention Center, from November 1 to 4.
