The longer front end probably means a bigger engine? I can't imagine Honda dumping the turbo charged I4 so soon though.

It seems more likely that this is an Accord with a wing, maybe a LE that comes with a wing or something.

Ummmm. Why does the front end scream BMW?
for fucks sake, isnt it obvious enought?

because they taped off that section where the badge is, so its end up looking like a bmw

The Veloster N is not available in the European market.
yeah, I edited my post already

One thing to keep in mind. The camo and especially the padding they're using in certain areas can give the illusion of a different shape than what's underneath. Don't assume it's quite as bulbous and blocky as it appears.

As far as the interior, I personally hate the stuck on tablet look.

Looks like a BMW >_<
but a sticker that devides the grill, and most cars suddenly look like a bmw

Wow. 100% bmw vibes on the front end/headlights
wow, and 80% of the whole front is covered and it will look like 75% different without all the camo.


TBH, the cameo Civic looks more BMW than current modern BMW we actually see riding without camo on the road
:rolleyes:

So dont worry, its just a cameo, because it has a bmw vibe, it wont end up looking like bmw

cameo certainly doing its thing by reading 90% of the reactions here

No roof wind diffuser, but brembo brakes and recaro seats. Saggy rear suspension and dinky tacked on exhaust. Looks like experimental after thought.

Looks to have exactly the same proportions to the FK8 to me. Look closely at the distance between the edge of the front door and the wheel - it's basically the same. The camo tape makes it look like the front overhang is enormous, but the FK8 is the same. The 10th gen civic isn't a small car, but they did a lot of visual tricks to make it look smaller, particularly the front and rear overhangs.

The main difference I'm seeing is that the body line below the side windows continues to the front wind screen. In the 10th gen civic the front guards and bonnet hide the bottom of the windscreen. Or perhaps it is more or less the same and they have placed the camo tape over the side windows to disguise the body line.

By comparing the rear differential from the Acura RDX to this prototype, it has some similarities (see red circles). So this might be an AWD.
If we look at the license plate place on the tailgate (yellow square), it is only suitable for NA license plates.

10th gen Si owner sounding off, first Honda. Super excited that this exists at all. I'm sure the looks from the driver's seat on a sublime piece of road/track will be great. Hope this makes it in to showrooms given all the turmoil going on right now in the auto industry. It's a great time to be a Honda enthusiast in the NA market. 🍻

I want an Integra Type-R Coupe with a hatchback.



And a pony.

That kind of screams Acura then, doesn't it?

If you're familiar with the rear suspension on the current civic and Accord, those two bolts look pretty clearly to be the rear lower control arm inner mounting bolts. I do not see any sort of differential in that spy shot.

Looks like the expected rear subframe.

Hoping it’s a refinement all around. Though the drivetrain, interior, performance and tech of GenX is impressive the exterior styling in my opinion is quite confused, cluttered with to many odd angles, cut outs, creases and fake vents. Looked like a transformer that never quite fit back together correctly.
