A CHANGE OF PARADIGM – The Honda is present at MIMO 2022 with the most recent models in its range, the latest of which is the new Honda Civic, offered in Italy exclusively in a hybrid version. A car that, compared to the previous generation, stands out for a cleaner and more elegant style. Peculiarity that also underlines Vincenzo Picardi, communications manager of Honda Italy with whom we exchanged a few words, who describes the new Japanese sedan as follows: “Until recently, the Hondas had a divisive design: either you loved it or you hated it. On the new models, on the other hand, it is much more balanced and of European taste. As in the case of the new Honda Civic, which compared to the previous one takes a significant step forward also in terms of perceived quality “.
Compared to the previous one Honda Civic, the width of 150 cm remains unchanged, instead the length increases with 455 cm (3 cm more) and the wheelbase with 273 cm (3.5 cm more); the overall height decreases which, with 141 cm, makes the new Civic the lowest car in the C segment, namely that of compact sedans. The style of the bodywork is also found in the passenger compartment, where we tried to maximize functionality. The dashboard is low and horizontally developed, the position of the side mirrors and the large windows improve visibility. In the center of the dashboard, the 9-inch central touchscreen is flanked by the 10.2-inch one on the dashboard.
