2016 Honda Civic Concept Canada
The Honda Civic’s success in Canada has been well documented over the past two decades. With a trophy case full of awards and 17 consecutive years as Canada’s best-selling car, there are plenty of Civics from various years on the road. Soon, a new generation of Honda Civics will join that mix, as the 2016 Honda Civic is on its way.
Although the next-generation Honda Civic has not officially been announced, Honda did reveal the 2016 Honda Civic Concept at the New York International Auto Show. Entering its 10th generation, the 2016 Honda Civic is planned to be available as a sedan, coupe and 5-door hatchback. Additionally, the performance-focused Honda Civic Type-R will make its Canadian debut in the 2016 model year. While the 2016 Honda Civic is still in concept form, it looks as though Honda has some remarkable things in store for its 10th generation Honda Civic.
10th Generation Honda Civic to include new VTEC Turbo Engine
Naturally aspirated VTEC engines have been prevalent in the Honda Civic for generations, but beginning with the 2016 Honda Civic model, new VTEC Turbo engines will be available in select iterations. While those turbocharged engines will certainly show up in the Honda Civic Type-R, they may also be available in top trims throughout the 2016 Honda Civic Range.
Also new for the 2016 model year is the return of the Honda Civic 5-Door Hatchback to Canada. Although it has been available overseas for years, it has been a decade since it was available in Canada.
2016 Honda Civic Concept lays groundwork for 10th generation model
As the Honda Civic range gets a little more diverse and exciting for the 2016 model year, you can expect the Civic to continue its best-selling trend. In addition to new variations, the 2016 Honda Civic will offer preventative safety technology, including the entire Honda Sensing suite.
The popular 2016 Honda Civic Sedan, Coupe, and Si models will be manufactured in Alliston, Ontario, meaning many of them will never have to leave Canada before being purchased by Honda Civic lovers throughout the country.
