We love it when an automaker responds to the media and customers. In this case it's Honda refreshing the Civic a scant 18 months after a full redesign because of comments on styling and interior shortcomings. The strange thing is the Civic is killing it in the sales department so kudos to Honda for doing the right thing. The braver more angular styling of the 2013 Civic sedan's front end includes a new open-mouth lower bumper with a horizontal chrome accent and a sportier, black honeycomb mesh grille, anchored by new integrated foglights on upper trims. The grille is flanked by new clear-lens corner lights to provide a more premium look. The 2013 Civic's more sculpted front-end flows into a new, more deeply faceted hood, complemented by a collection of sharp new wheel designs. Now if we can only get Honda to bring over those 'forbidden fruit' JDM whips...all with Mugen editions.
