2014 Honda Civic Release Date
There is some good news for all of the Honda Civic lovers who have been digging deep for information on the new 2014 model. As you have probably discovered after countless hours of research, Honda has been pretty tight-lipped about the specifics of the compact. However, the wait for information is almost over as the manufacturer has just announced that the new model will be unveiled on Nov. 5, during a press conference at the 2013 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show in Las Vegas.
It’s unfortunate that the Civic is always one of the last Honda models to be released, because the suspense always kills us. Last year we heard that the compact would be getting major improvements, but the manufacturer never gave specifics until the 2013 model was officially released. The same goes for the 2014 model which will also get some upgrades. We don’t know specifically what those changes will consist of, but Honda announced last Friday in a press release that they will “further its segment leadership again with new enhancements to the Civic lineup for 2014.”
The SEMA Show should also provide a better timeline for the 2014 Honda Civic release date. Last year, the first 2013 Civic model to hit showrooms was the Civic Sedan, which was released on Nov. 29. The other six models had staggered releases over the following two months. If Honda has the same time frame in mind for this year, it means that we could see the next generation Honda Civic in San Antonio by early December.
As Honda said that the new Civic will “further its segment leadership,” it’s likely that the 39 mpg highway fuel economy rating could get an increase. A lot of the new 2014 models have implemented a Honda Earth Dreams engine, and it’s likely that the Civic will as well. That could push the compact over the 40 mpg highway barrier which would no doubt put it at the top of its class. As the spacious Civic already leans more towards a mid-sized car, it’s not likely that the upgrades will include a size increase. However, with almost 100 cubic feet of passenger space in the 2013 model, the size doesn’t really need any adjustments anyway.
To find out more about the 2014 Honda Civic, be sure to check back on our blog. As the SEMA show is taking place next Tuesday, we will likely have updates posted on Wednesday. Although we will not be in attendance, Honda is sure to release some information after the event. Hopefully the update will include pictures so all of you at home can get a glimpse of what’s to come.
