The Civic is a classic. Yes, we said it. For all its ubiquity, Honda's most popular car is a bar-setting automotive icon. Think about this: In many ways, the Honda Civic defines the c-class segment.
Of course, there have been potholes in the road to class leading status. Notably, a recent loss of interest due to perceived lack of innovation. The car didn't have youthful verve. That has changed.
A quick 2013 facelift, as reported, has given the Civic sleek new lines and a fresh new interior. You can see it here, in full glory, but we won't get complete details until November 29, when the car is officially unveiled at the L.A. Auto Show. Wildly, the 2013 Civic will also hit showrooms the same day. Call that confidence.
