Honda Civic will get a refresh for 2011

The Honda Civic is the latest car to receive a refresh for the new year.

Updates include minor styling tweaks, new alloy wheel designs and interior upholstery improvements.

Exterior enhancements for the 2011 Honda Civic are limited to a new grille design across the range, which is influenced by that fitted to the recently discontinued high performance Type R model.

However, alloy wheels are now standard, with the design and size varying by model. Meanwhile, 1.4-litre three-door Type S models now boast body-coloured side skirts, and a new ‘Ionized Bronze’ paint finish is now available.

On the inside there are new trim finishes. ES and SE gain half-fabric, half-Alcantara upholstery, while the Si now includes half-leather and Alcantara, plus heated front seats.

There are no changes to the engine line-up and pricing remains the same, with the entry-level 1.4-litre Type S starting at £13,995.

New Civic available soon

Production starts in Swindon this November, so you can expect to see the new Civic in showrooms soon after.

Honda is currently running a range of offers aimed at tempting people into showrooms. These include three years’ servicing and car tax at no extra charge on all Civics until the end of the year.
