It's the first close up I've seen of the front door handles. They thankfully look more sturdy than the current ones. Mine are always jamming and will not open from the outside.

Complete new design to compete with the Golf.
Honda listened to current civic owners: more comfort, less noise and better fuel economy
2,5cm shorter wheelbase for better handling in the city
3 engine (like the current EX model)

Inside Spacy (which you must like)
enough room in the front, but the version with glass roof is headroom just enough
Headroom in the backseat is worse, the middle passenger must bend his neck to avoid his head hitting the roof! Not great
Boot measures 450 liters (size of a space shuttle), easy to expand by folding down the backseats

Dashboard is futuristic like a space-shuttle and all the buttons are logically placed an easy to reach.
Loads of places were you can put stuff in (arm rest, middle console)

This new Civic did not lose any sportiness while they managed to keep the ride comfortably. A good compromise.
Direct and very light steering but very precise.
View to the back is like the current Civ
Nice engine with precise and good shifting gearbox, a quick car.
Passed the 'Elandproef' (you know where the Benz A tiped over) with A+ due to the great suspension.

Conclusion:
Great design, CW value 0.27 (which is great in his class)
Suspension comfort did improve, but still a sporty drivers car
