2014 Honda Civic Coupe Revealed at SEMA

The 2014 Honda Civic Coupe gets a fresh look this year, as images of the new car’s mildly revised exterior sheetmetal were presented at the opening this week of the SEMA show in Las Vegas.

The new Civic Coupe maintains its unique profile, yet it also sets itself further apart from the 2014 Civic sedan with a new front fascia plus a stronger character line for the front fender, which together give the car a more aggressive, wedge-style look.

Honda has also announced that the 2014 Honda Civic Si Coupe will have fractionally more power. The 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine makes 205 hp @ 7000 rpm and 174 lb-ft of torque @ 4400 rpm, an increase of 4 hp and 4 lb-ft thanks to a freer flowing exhaust system.

More Details To Come

All the information about the 2014 Honda Civic Coupe will be presented at the Los Angeles auto show on November 20. We’ve already had a close-up look at the new Civic Coupe, and while the changes are minimal in detail, the total impression makes the car noticeably more sporty.

At the front, the hood dives down to more dramatic grille opening, which gives the car a wedgier look, while a thinner central duct in the fascia is flanked by two larger cooling ducts. Meanwhile a round character line for the front fender appears at the base of the A-pillar.

At the back of the Civic Coupe, the rear fascia introduced last year now has some character lines of its own, while the taillight treatment is slightly different.

The 2014 Honda Civic Si Coupe has a few unique bits, including a slightly different grille, more aggressive front bumper, an aero diffuser-style element for the rear fascia and a modest rear wing on the deck lid.

Naturally there’s a range of new wheels for 2014 car. The Civic Coupe EX has a different 16-inch cast-aluminum design, while the EX-L now has a 17-inch wheel and the Si comes with an 18-inch wheel.

What Does It All Mean?

Hey, this is Honda, so sometimes you have to look hard for the new stuff. It’s not like the 2014 Honda Civic Coupe has been reinvented.

Nevertheless, it’s worth remembering that the Civic Coupe is one of the very few small, two-door cars on the market, and it continues to out-sell (in respective order) the Hyundai Veloster, Scion tC, Scion FR-S, Subaru BRZ, Hyundai Elantra coupe and Kia Forte coupe by a substantial margin.

The 2014 Honda Civic Coupe finally puts to rest the fears that Honda has lost passion for this car, and indeed the car is becoming sportier. We’ll see what the sum total of the car’s 2014 update comes to later this month.

I agree with you John,sometimes Manufacturers just need to leave well enough alone. Option some new colors, two-tones, three-tones, I love the color schemes of the car designer, Delahaye.

John Lopez
Hurry and get the 2013 model before the 2014 arrives!
John Lopez
Unfortunately, a lot has changed and not in a good way. The last version was balanced and tasteful. I can't say the same for this one.
Timothy Alba-Wright
Hey Honda! Have you seen the new Mazda 3? Whoa baby!
Angie Ferrannini Nielsen
I thought the Civic got to its ugliest; I was wrong...
Raj Jk
Sucks..... :-P
Matt Simmons
Can't tell anything changed.
John Boho
We want hatchbacks! Not fat Civics compensating with bigger displacement. Honda needs to compete with the Cooper S, Sonic RS, GTi, Focus ST and Fiesta ST -- all of which are much better alternatives.
Robert May
European crash safety standards have ruined all cars' front ends. They all have a huge, bulbous nose starting low and end up with a high meeting point with the windshield. In the middle, the hood is pushed up, ballooned, and rounded a few inches higher than normal. All this, just so "pedestrians" in Europe, and now the rest of the world don't get hurt as easily when they get hit by morons. Thanks legislation!! Just one more thing you've done to ruin cars.
Doug Maxwell
wheres the "refresh"??? Looks the same..
Chuck KidneyStone
I'm not sold
Dean Gademans

Ugly. I loved my '06 SI. It went downhill fast after that.
Joseph Whiskey Beale
Less ugly, still ugly as hell, but less so.
Greg Lane

Lee Klein
Ugly. Bloated, yes.
Louis Severson
Looks like a Kia
Aaron Palmer
I think it's be suitable without that pinstriped bar in the grill. It's just enough to make it feel like there is too much going on.
Tobias Rollinson
I can't even tell whats changed? Regardless it looks way too swoopy & bloated. Bring back the hatch!
Justice Edwards

2006-2011 Gen Eight STILL looks better.
