Default Honda debuts the 2013 Civic that will fix everything

Filed under: Budget, Sedan, Honda, Design/Style

Honda has officially unveiled the 2013 Civic at the 2012 LA Auto Show, complete with its substantially revised interior and exterior, which the Japanese automaker hopes will stem the tide of criticism levied at the completely redesigned 2012 model. Designers did away with the short-lived front and rear ends found on last year's ill-received Civic in favor of a look that borrows heavily from the attractive Accord line.

Buyers will now find Bluetooth hands free calling and streaming audio as standard equipment alongside a rear-view camera, USB port and redundant controls on the steering wheel, among other goodies. The price will jump by $160 across the line, however, which means the 2013 Honda Civic carries an entry MSRP of $18,165, plus a $795 destination fee.

The option sheet has bulked up a bit as well, with safety tech like lane departure warning and forward collision warning systems now part of the party. Unfortunately, it doesn't look as if the trick LaneWatch blind spot camera from the new Accord will make it to the mix.

Inside, designers gave the cabin more soft touch materials than before, though the dash still appears to suffer from a disjointed design, complete with multi-tier displays and a smattering of vents. Honda also claims its engineers took a crack at sharpening up the steering and suspension for a little more precision. Check out the full press release below for more information.Continue reading Honda debuts the 2013 Civic that will fix everything
