If Honda kept the coupe for the 11th-generation it could look something like this.
If Honda wants to go big they could bring resurrect the S2000 to rival the Supra and 400Z. Supposedly there's been rumors of it happening.I will miss the coupe... it's a shame it had to go... but at the same time the more mature styling of the 11th gen doesn't really fit the coupe character anymore either.
Honda would be better served to introduce a new coupe model that can break away from the economy car roots of the civic, focus more on performance and less on convenience, and take a slightly wilder styling direction... Honda did re-purchase their trademark for the CR-Z name last year (after letting it expire in 2017), and with their electrification/hybridization goals over the next few years, I wouldn't 100% rule out seeing the CR-Z make a comeback as a sport hybrid coupe/hatch that competes with cars such as the Veloster, BRZ, and GR86.
I would fully support a RWD S2000 model revival. It would easily compete with the 400Z, Supra, Miata.If Honda wants to go big they could bring resurrect the S2000 to rival the Supra and 400Z. Supposedly there's been rumors of it happening.
WHAT? This is pretty amazing news. ""According to a source close to Honda," Forbes magazine reported, "the brand’s marketing gurus are seriously considering the launch of a next-generation S2000 that could surface to celebrate the coupe’s 25th anniversary in 2024." The news gets even better...www.civic11forum.com
I think this has changed for a few reasons. Ze Germans with their sport sedans. How much bigger all the interior spaces have gotten meaning that you have to redesign so much more of the car for a coupe without comically long doors than before the mid 90s. And the weight that comes with the new tech/safety equipment. The light small compact is gone, these new civics are accord from 30 years ago sized.I still remember the days when anything other than a two door was a family car. No one thought of 4 door sedans as sporty. (I still don't, but the choices are limited nowadays unless you buy true sports cars.). I still think there should be coupe versions of most cars.
That is the unfortunate truth.That looks decent but definitely, but with the market the way it is, even if they did make a coupe (which they won’t) it would be designed to maximize parts sharing, so I can’t image it would have unique headlights, a grille maybe. That back being the same is interesting, this would be the opposite to the 10th gen coupe that was exactly the same in the front half of the car, but had a different rear.
The civic version of the Corolla Cross is already announced. It’s the new NA HR-V. In other markets they already have a new version of it. But here, it’s a new civic based CUV under the CR-V.That is the unfortunate truth.
What's far more likely to happen is a Civic crossover, sort of like what Toyota did with the Corolla Cross.
