Still would like to see the coupe with the trunk open just to see how hard it would be to get a bicycle in there.
I still don't understand why they didn't make it a liftback like the old RSX and Integra. It's so much more practical.

Shralper, my thoughts exactly. I've been looking at the new Hyundai Ioniq which has not been officially "revealed" and from all the photos you'd swear that the trunk line is below the rear glass making it a sedan. But no. Watch the hatch in action at the end of this teaser video:


Maybe there's still a surprise for the Civic Coupe.

They should show the car with touring wheels. Accessory wheels don't match this car at all. And is it just me, or does the car's rear end look way too short from the side profile?
I was thinking the exact same two things.
Hate those wheels.
And wow, the rear wheels look like they're pushed way far back. I can live with it though, especially if it rides better. But if I wasn't used to seeing the Scion Tc (with a similar look), it would look bad to me.

I wished they would have used the coupe tail lights on the sedan. I like the way it goes all the way across the trunk.
I don't think the whole thing lights up does it? In the video someone posted of the coupe on the street in Canada, it didn't seem to when it braked, so I assumed the middle portion is a reflector. But it was in the day, and not a great video.

You would think that they would of brought another color by now. Coupe looks great. Si is going to be smoking hot. Curious to see if coupe weighs 100 less.

The rear lights are awesome, no doubt. From the side though, the rear fender area looks "off" to me... too short maybe. Or, maybe it's that wavy crease in the metal, I'm not sure. Overall I think the proportions look a bit better on the sedan. It will be really interesting to see how the hatch turns out.

So I know they lowered the roof line on the coupe but does it sit lower on the suspension as well? I'd love to put 18" wheels on one of these but if the accessory wheels shown are 17", larger wheels seem like they'd be an awful tight fit.

Interesting it doesn't look like it has a leather steering wheel but rather molded plastic (ewwwww). Strange since the seats seem like leather.

Does seem to have the full leather interior and shift knob but the vinyl steering wheel. You'd think they'd want a leather wheel for the show circuit. Pretty strange.

May not be a touring. Don't see the lane keep button. Leather steering wheel should be on touring.

Would probably have LED headlights if it were a touring. Just strange they'd give the coupe a full leather interior including the shift knob..but not the steering wheel like the ex-l sedan. Even appears to have the auto dimming mirror of the ex-l as well.
