Once a segment benchmark, the mighty Honda Civic has fallen on hard times. With increased compact sedan competition, the 2012 edition didn't win over as many buyers as hoped. So, emergency planning went into action. Honda has speedily given its most famous car a fresh new look. Will it work?

New tail lamps follow the Accord's aesthetic, and the new bumper has some more distinct curves than its older brother. Rumors also suggest the interior has been given an overhaul…important given the baron nature of the current Civic.
