Honda previews 2013 Civic

Honda has revealed the 2013 Honda Civic Sedan, previewing the new car ahead of its official debut later this month. Promising to be both "more youthful" and "premium" than its predecessor, the 2013 Civic gets bigger front grilles, clear lens corner lights, and sharper hood creases, flowing back to chrome trim across the trunk lid, "jewel-like" rear lights, and honeycomb-mesh diffuser mesh.

There's matching mesh in the front grille, along with a newly redesigned rear bumper, integrated reflectors, lashings of chrome, and a set of new wheel selections (though so far Honda has only shown us one example). The belt lines have also crisped up, though the airbrushed silver of Honda's graphics helps emphasize them.

Unfortunately, there the details dry up, and Honda has only provided the two photos of the new Civic. The interior as well as the safety, drivetrain, and other features have also been refreshed, as you'd expect, but we'll have to wait until November 29 and the Los Angeles Auto Show for all of the information.

One possibility, however, is the car company's HondaLink cloud-based infotainment system, as will debut on the 2013 Accord. That includes Bluetooth streaming, Pandora internet radio, Facebook text-to-speech, audiobooks, SMS messaging, and personalized restaurant services, all controlled by voice.
