<span class="quoteStyle">The 9th generation Civic never really seemed to get it right.
Class average rather than a class leader, the 2012-2015 seemed to have lost some of that MojoHonda compacts are world famous for.
Well, for 2016 it appears that the Civic is back. Rebuilt from the ground up the new 10<sup>th</sup> generation Civic is nothing like last year’s model.
Honda claims this is the biggest complete redesign the Civic has ever received. The goal with the 10<sup>th</sup>generation car is to recapture some of the sporty character the Civic used to be known for, but was lacking in the last generation. It’s two inches wider and one inch lower, built on a 1.2-inch longer wheelbase.
The new look has a lot of 2016 Accord up front and a blend of Insight, Crosstour and FCV Clarity in the back. Sitting ahead of the large front fender flares are available LED headlights, much like Acura’s jewel eyes. As well, LED daytime running lights and LED taillights are standard.
Trying to remind us that it’s not all about family sedans, Earth Dreams, Magic Seats and crossovers, Honda has pulled the wraps off its wild Project 2&4 Concept, an open-air vehicle that combines a motorcycle with a car.
The Project 2&4 Concept made its public debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show and it has a car chassis but is powered by a 999-cc V4 engine lifted from a superbike that revs to 14,000 rpm. Take a second to take in how epic that is.
That engine pumps out 215 hp and 87 lb-ft of torque and power makes it to the ground via a six-speed dual-clutch gearbox. The engine is mounted mid-ship, which helps give the concept a low center of gravity and fantastic responsiveness.
As Honda’s answer to something like the KTM X-Bow, the car has a floating seat and doesn’t have a cabin or windshield. More importantly, it weighs just 893 pounds, so chances are this thing will drive like a go-kart on steroids. It’s only 120 inches long, 72 wide and 39 high.
This concept is the result of an annual global Honda contest that encourages its design teams to go wild.
There’s very little chance that this concept will ever make it to production, but that doesn’t stop us from really, really wanting one.
The 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show is next week and there’s a lot to be excited about.
Dozens of world premieres and debuts will take place in Germany, but some are more exciting than others. Best of all, not all the automakers have spilled details on what they’re bringing, so we can expect some surprises once the show floor opens to the media.
For now, here’s AutoGuide.com‘s pick of the top 10 most anticipated debuts from the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show. Although some cars have already been exposed or revealed online, we’re still excited to see them in person once the automakers lift those pesky car covers.
