The Honda Civic has been carrying the same design for a while now. The new design of the car will be available worldwide soon. It is expected that the new changes that the vehicle has undergone will appeal to the millennial customers.

The new Civic has in it Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, HDMI and USB ports. The car has Bluetooth connectivity through its 7-inch Honda Connect 2 color touchscreen display. The top models also get a reversing camera.

Most of the functions are now easy to navigate through using the buttons that are mounted on the steering wheel. There is a slight issue with the navigation of the car as it uses a less efficient Garmin system which is slow to respond, reported Car and Driver.

The design of the new Honda Civic is totally different. The exterior has been styled well and the car is lower and bigger than before. It has been elongated by 148mm, widened by 29mm and lowered by 20mm. This does look appealing indeed than the typical hatchback look, reported Pocket Lint.

The car has got a very distinctive grille and sportier look with the LED running lights. The sweeping side flanks enhance the look too. The car has made some small yet good looking design enhancements like a shark fin-style antenna and gaping grilles behind the rear wheels. The car is designed to give a quieter ride as it is using the improved NVH (Noise Vibration Harshness) engineering.

The new Civic gives an option between a 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol and a 1.0-litre three-cylinder unit. Though it does seem a little less on efficiency, it manages to develop 127bhp and 200Nm of torque (at 2,250rpm).

It can be said that the car is a more practical version of its predecessor and works well on the pockets too. It is also economical when it comes to fuel usage. It is definitely good looking and smoother to ride on the road. This version of Civic makes one more excited about Honda's next release - the Type R.
