Honda unveiled the second member of its reengineered 10th-generation Civic lineup -- the 2016 Civic Coupe – at the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show. Jeff Conrad, senior vice president of American Honda Motor Co., Inc. and general manager of the Honda Division, describes the vehicle as the sportiest, most sophisticated and most tech-savvy Civic Coupe yet. Indeed, the Civic Coupe offers all these in an emotional rendition of the all-new Civic styling.
Safety, of course, remains a priority for the 2016 Civic Coupe. In fact, this vehicle makes use of Honda's next-generation Advanced Compatibility Body Structure (ACE) -- which when used in conjunction with advanced airbags and seatbelts as well as with the available Honda Sensing suite advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies -- provide a high level of safety.
With these safety elements, Honda is targeting to grab an NCAP 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and a TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).
Conrad remarked that customers will be surprised by what the new Civic Coupe can bring in terms of refinement, safety, efficiency and fun-to-drive performance.
With a scheduled launch in March 2016, the new 2016 Civic Coupe is the second in a series of new 10th-generation Civic models that is being launched in the 18 months -- Civic Sedan, Civic Coupe, Civic 5-door hatchback for the United States, Civic Si performance variants, and the new Civic Type-R for the US.
