I've read that the body is better but do you have a link?
Full press release is here

Specifics:
Stiffer Body Structure Improves Dynamics and Safety Performance
The 11th-generation Civic body structure is the most rigid in Civic history, with an 8 percent improvement in torsional rigidity and 13 percent improvement in bending rigidity versus the previous generation. The stiffer structure supports improvements in ride, handling and NVH.

The next generation of Honda’s Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) structure is designed to meet present and anticipated future collision standards while minimizing additional weight. This is achieved with the extensive use of lightweight materials, such as aluminum and various grades of high-strength steel, as well as an expanded application of structural adhesives.

The new, stiffer body also reduces the transmission of road and wind noise to create a more relaxed driving environment.

I'm looking forward to seeing if there's going to be a noticeable handling difference with a stronger body.
