The new 2017 Honda Civic Coupe has been the subject of many rumors. One rumor that is doing the rounds is that a 1.5-liter turbo 4-cylinder engine is going to power up the Civic Coupe. A second rumor doing the rounds is that the Civic will get a very European body style. Some even say that the Civic Coupe will ride on an overhauled CR-Z platform. The simple truth is that the new Civic Coupe will be a vastly changed vehicle. Both the interiors and exteriors are going to undergo some modifications. Also, the carmaker will use an engine that delivers good fuel economy as well as top performance. Buyers are certainly going to be impressed with the engine and its superb performance.
2017 Honda Civic Coupe Engine Specs
An Earth Dreams engine will be installed under the hood of the new Civic Coupe. The carmaker also plans to introduce a hybrid variant sometime in the coming years. This variant will be powered by a couple of engines including a petrol engine as well as an electric motor. One engine option to be offered is the 4-cylinder 2.0-liter engine that will be capable of producing from 280 horsepower to 300 horsepower. In all probability, this 2.0-litere engine will be used as the base engine in the Coupe. We expect that the carmaker will offer more engine options. Whatever engine is used, it will be mated to a CVT for both the front-wheel as well as Four-wheel drive variants.
2017 Honda Civic Coupe Exterior and Interior
Till now, Honda has not provided any details regarding the looks of its new 2017 Honda Civic Coupe. However, we do think that Honda will maintain its tradition of offering a car with boldly styled exteriors. So, expect the Civic Coupe to look very bold. Also, the carmaker may make some other changes like introducing contemporary curves as well as improving aerodynamics, and it will also give the body a very sleek design. Some of the changes to the Civic Coupe are similar to the changes the carmaker made to the Type R though the changes that are made to the Civic Coupe will be new and fresh. The interiors as well as the exteriors will undergo a number of modifications and the car may also ride on a new FWD platform.
Since the Coupe has always been a bestselling model for Honda there is strong likelihood that the carmaker will willingly offer more number of trims as well as more number of powertrain options.
When we got a chance to look at the new 2017 Honda Civic Coupe, it was heavily camouflaged. We were not able to determine what kind of roofline the car has but in all probability the roofline of the car will incorporate a fastback style. From the glimpses that we got of the Coupe we were also able to determine that the Coupe is designed to look like the Accord. This means that the overall looks of the new Civic Coupe will be rather conservative.
