The wait is almost over for Honda’s redesigned 2016 Civic sedan.
The company confirmed Tuesday that the 10th generation of its venerable compact car would debut on Sept. 16 in simultaneous events in both Detroit and Los Angeles.
But not everything will be disclosed that day.
There will be no details released on the retooled Civic's horsepower or torque from the 1.5-liter turbocharged VTEC four-cylinder engine, no fuel economy figures for that optional turbo mill or the base four-cylinder, and no pricing info.
Fans of the upcoming coupe, hatchback, Si and Type R models (with the expected 2.0-liter turbo four) will have to stay patient, too, as details on those models aren’t expected for many months.
September’s debut will just be a look at the production sedan’s interior and exterior. Details about the powertrain will be revealed in October ahead of its on-sale date later this fall.
