Civic Suv...

Or mini Cr-V, who knows? Just happened to come across this image, it would be a lot better than the Auto Express mock up



A rendering of the possible back here. It should come out in 2013.

Looks OK and look like a real car... No a photoshop.


Edit: Actually, the more I look at it... it looks like a chop of the new CR-V (Bonnet line)

The car in the pic is clearly different... with a similar front end to 2012 Civic.

It's a rendering nonetheless but it's miles better than the crz+9thgen horrible mock seen on Autoexpress. It will probably have the 1.6 diesel and the 2.2. If Honda sorts out the niggles on the 9th gen, and gets the interior right, it may become an interesting player in 2014. Speaking of this supposed release date, it seems a bit too later, 2013 would be better.

Disagree

The Autoexpress mockup was fine. The front end on this looks like the old Ford Maverick. Ugly!

What I don't understand about this rumoured thing is that the CR-V already is a compact SUV. It is already based on the Civic. Honda invented the segment. In the later generations they have even made it more crossovery.

What is the point in a slightly smaller one?

Hmm, what niggles are they then? Had mine 5 months, zero niggles. Previously had two 8th Gens, multiple niggles! As for "gets the interior right", there's nothing wrong with it. In fact, i've yet to see a better interior in a hatchback than my EX GT.

Massive +1

I had 2 8th Gens too, and it's interior was good (Just rattled and squeaked).... Spend a few days driving a 9th and then you will see 'How Right' Honda got it and how much better it is

Sorry, I was referring to what doesn't work in the 9g interior for me. The lack of the box in front of the gear lever, the lowered roof on the back space, the cheap looking (and feeling) steering wheel. And then more in the user/driver experience: the absence of a native and proper infotainment system on par with the current tech (ie, the app-enabled Pioneer headunits, or an Android system, or one just like the new A-Class), the strange behaviour of the trip computer that requires you to stop to change the displayed info, and some more I can't recall here at work

Personally, I haven't found the trip computer to be an issue for me. Displayed everything I needed once I set it up.

There's plenty of storage space in the cabin without the box in front of the gear lever. The cabin has more storage than any other current hatchback I can think of. Overall, probably the largest cabin in it's class.

Steering wheel feels fine to me. Slightly thicker than the 8th Gen.

Sound system is better than the upgrade I had on the 8th Gen.

Added bonus of no rattles whatsoever after 5 months ownership.

Sorry, guess I just can't agree with any of the issues you raise.
