Refreshed 2014 Honda Civic Coupe to bow at SEMAFri, 25 Oct 2013 13:30:00 EST
Honda has announced plans to bring a refreshed, 2014 Honda Civic Coupe to the 2013 SEMA Show, set to kick off on November 5. Honda's struggles with the ninth-generation Civic have been widely publicized, and while the 2013 model year sedan has seen a significant overhaul, the two-door is now getting some additional enhancements for 2014.
Honda has released one teaser image of the Civic Si Coupe to go along with the announcement, but we can discern a few things. The Si Coupe now features a larger rear spoiler, along with a restyled, more aggressive rear bumper, complete with a diffuser. The taillights look smoked, and the wheels look larger than the current Si's alloys.
Besides those details, it looks like we'll be waiting until November 5 to see just what Honda has in store for the Civic. Take a look below for the full press release from Honda.
2014 Honda Civic to Once Again Raise the Bar with Coupe World Debut at 2013 SEMA Show
Mid-cycle refresh for Civic includes sharpened coupe exterior styling and Si performance enhancements designed to make the best-selling compact car even better
10/25/2013 - TORRANCE, Calif.
Just one year after major improvements established the Honda Civic as the clear compact segment leader, Honda will further its segment leadership again with new enhancements to the Civic lineup for 2014. Details and technical changes will be announced in the coming weeks, but the world will get its first look at some of the changes when the 2014 Honda Civic Coupe (http://automobiles.honda.com/2014-civic/) makes its world debut at the 2013 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show in Las Vegas during a press conference scheduled for Nov. 5th at 9:30 a.m. PT.
As one of the key vehicles sparking the original import tuner movement of the late 1980's and early 1990's, the Honda Civic has been the platform of choice for those seeking personalization potential and built-in performance coupled with unmatched reliability. The 2014 Civic Coupe will honor that proud tradition by making its debut among its most ardent fans, displaying multiple variations at the 2013 SEMA Show.
Along with the Civic, the Honda SEMA booth (24987) will feature an impressive array of personalized automobiles, motorcycles and the 133-mph "Mean Mower" (http://bit.ly/MeanMower) developed by Honda (UK) and their title-winning British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) partner, Team Dynamics.
Show attendees are also invited to register online for the Honda Industry Soiree, sure to be the unrivaled Tuesday night event, unfolding at 10:00 p.m. PT at Tao nightclub in The Venetian Las Vegas.
