10G Civic launch (First impressions)

I know quite a few people on here have been invited to local dealerships for the 10G civic launch in February (myself included). I thought it would be good to have a thread just to compare initial impressions and answer any questions that may have been ambiguous prior to the launch.
So, who's been invited then?

Here in Holland it was last Saturday by my local dealership,

I thought before I went I didn't liked it. But in real it is okay... I need to get used to the new look. After a hour walking around it I quite liked it. Only thing that's negative are the magicseats, the glass roof (no more roof racks) and the buttons on the steering wheel(cheapish) I really like the exhausts

Some pictures of last Saturday:

10G Civic launch (First impressions)

Anyone else that gets to see the Europe spec car, can they check the following please?

1) The rear door card on the US hatch is mostly hard plastic compared to the nicely trimmed front door cards (for cost cutting). Is it the same on European models?

2) Undamped and unlined glovebox. So far, only Malaysia saloon gets a damped (gas strut) glovebox. Will Europe spec get a damped glovebox?

Hello everyone,

I registered to show you the images I took in the presentation of the Civic 10 in Valencia (Spain) on December 28.

There is a photo showing the steering wheel buttons. There are people who say the same thing as @Xa4cornelis (the buttons are cheap). But I like it, and there are the buttons for all Honda cars in the near future (including the new US CR-V).

I also felt the steering buttons here in Thailand, in the saloon version. I think they really have a cheap feel. I prefer the old ones. By the way great looking car the 4 door saloon!

Anyone comment on the headroom in the back? The 9g hatchback sloped down severely. Also any pictures of the boot?

I can only find the US brochure for the hatchback. I guess we'll have to wait until February for the European brochure...

If you can speak German, the Austrian Honda site has a Flash-based e-brochure:

Thanks for checking. It's very much appreciated.

The attention to detail (or lack of) can make or break a potential purchase.

Now that the headunit seems sorted (from crashing) my main concern now is CVT. I'll need to test drive it and wait for the real owner reviews here.

I'm also interested in exactly how the electronic handbrake works as I refuse to sit stationary with my foot on the brake pedal, bad driving.

I've yet to see a good CVT review on any car. They may be OK round town but dual carriageway acceleration can apparently be a very noisy and unrefined experience.

Autocar advise to avoid the Jazz CVT for example.

The "brake hold" button eliminates the need to have the foot on the brake in stop / start traffic. When activated, the brakes automatically engage when you come to a complete stop. Once you press the accelerator, the brakes automatically release. The brake hold feature needs to be re-enabled for each trip. I'd say the brake lights would be illuminated whilst the foot brake is electronically activated in "brake hold" mode. Have tried this feature in the HRV and thought it was convenient.

Also IIRC for starting on new journeys, as long as the driver seatbelt is engaged, pressing on the accelerator will automatically release the parking brake, assuming the transmission is in gear.
