Have you driven one? If you do, I bet the "boner shift" will fit perfectly in your hand as you work it up and down.

I would even consider buying one of those. I looks like the USDM Accord in the front, the roofline, side window, but overall, I think it's better looking than the Accord. Very nicely executed.

Your right it does. Which isn't a good thing. Luckily the NA version won't look like that.

Makes sense. Honda apparently accidentally posted the pics on their European webpage and later took them down.

The names of the pic links would lead me to believe it's an 07 model, but that doesn't sound right either. I guess I'll have to ask some folks at the show.

The pics certainly look like the Civic pics of a couple of months ago at the track in camo gear. Strictly Euro models.

Is it just me, or those the Civic Concept remind everyone of something that would be out of a Peugeot or Renault design book?

I say it's different from what the usual Honda design has been of late. I wonder how much the production design will tone down the concept.

Junkster, who thinks the next Civic has to be good

I really don't see Murano at all. Probably because of the orange color reminding us of the first pics of the Murano when it was new.

The headlights running across the front reminds me of some old Mercury models with the same design theme. The whole thing would light up at night.

I want to dislike it, but for some reason, I think it looks good.

From the front only view (shown in the first pic) it literally resembles a scaled down TSX . Considering TSX is marketed as the Honda Accord in Europe, I think this design direction is something Honda has been moving towards for a while now.

The back is just hideous... but maybe thats the way Europeans like it

There are plenty of other cars that had orange when it was making protype rounds on the internet (Acura MDX concept, Acura CL). But the Civic and the Murano have more in common than the Z and the Civic. The biggest being the bulbous hatchback rear end, which most people are probably using to tie the two together.

You can't just disprove what I'm saying by listing any old orange colored car.

I never DROVE it, but I sat in one and rowed through the gears.
I felt that in 3rd & 5th gear my knuckles got uncomfortably close to the console and I’d probably hit them on occasion.
This has been mentioned in numerous professional reviews so I’m not the only one who doesn’t like the design.
And it looks horrible.

Spy Shots: 2006 Honda Civic Sedan - - by Brenda Priddy - - Source: The Car Connection






Sometimes it just doesn't pay to save space on your digital memory card for those vacation pictures when something big is passing you by. And that's exactly what happened during this spring break fling. These pictures, taken by college students on their way to their vacation destination, was obviously shot in the low-megapixel mode, but grainy or not, these are the very first pictures of the upcoming Honda Civic sedan.

There will be many differences between the sedan and coupe, but even so, one can easily see the similarities between the sedan shown here and the Civic Si concept shown in Chicago. Most noticeable is the sweeping roofline and A-pillar, which goes right into the hood for a dramatic look. The windshield, side-view mirror treatment, and front-side windows, as well as the rear fender creases and trim, all match closely with the Si concept as well.

I see a second hump in front of the driver - it seems to follow the European econobox mantra of puttting some stuff away from the traditional gauge cluster area.

Gotta see some more pics to get a better feel for it.

The thing is only about 3 months from production.

Yeah, I see the hump. Like a secondary info display. Seems like it'll be one of the first times the concept of the double hump will be applied here; if not the first. I wonder how the final production interior will look.

I really doubt the Corolla has a thunder. Its just better than the Civic and the better deals also help make it a better seller. The 3, definently has thunder.

It looks like the cabin was made bigger while the overall exterior size remains the same (notice how the A-pillar literally connects with the hood, as opposed to having the hood jut out from the cabin).

I just hope the link to College Hill Honda about the optional tires is correct, the wheels in these pic look so tiny compared to the body.
