  2. Looks a very exciting prospect.

    Bye bye wallowy cornering.

    Home DiYers may be pleased to know it also has a front jacking point. The lack of this on some recent Hondas is a deal-breaker for me.

    I hope the electronic parking brake works better than Toyota's version.

    Yeah Honda has been making cross members across the board for no front jacking. we may have to fabricate a lift arm for jacks.

    I am not so keen on large black plastic panels around fog light areas on new 2017 Civic & same at back. Honda have also incorporated then for some reason on back of new Jazz, on which they seem to have no purpose.
    The 2017 Civic Type-R is likely to look less dramatic than the current model which is why I recently got a one year old current model.

    Type-R looks better with large wing that was not shown in some reviews which instead showed a small wing just below rear window. However, still not keen on large black honeycomb panels back & front.

    I have advised @Ichiban that I will make posts, & add car, if a separate section is created for Civic Type-R's as they are so different to the standard Civic. There is a section for S2000's, albeit not correctly sub divided by series of which there should be 4 not 2, so lets have a separate Type-R section.

    Having seen a couple of 10th Generation Civics here in Dubai whilst in traffic, its quite eye-catching how big it really is.

    Obviously I have no measurements, but on first appearance, its not that far off (visually at least) from what an Accord is like. Makes you wonder then if the UK will ever see the Accord again!

    If it is a bigger car - and it does look to be from those I've seen on car transporters here - then a four door saloon version might fill the gap left by Accord.

    Whether it will sell in our German vehicle fascinated country is another matter, regardless of how good it is. Mind you, that may change post-Brexit when EU manufactured cars are likely to become more expensive. We can but dream...

    Unfortunately the 2017 Civic will not have magic back seats which I think is a mistake.

    Agree on paper but let see the car to see if that was a real mistake.,

    Many dog owners like magic seats, HR-V would be good alternative to 2017 Civic if only Honda would put new Turbo petrol in the HR-V.

    I have tourer no need for magic seats, had the milk float they were good for tall items.

    My wife has CR-V but like many dog owners we like dogs to be in the car as it is both safer for them & easier for dogs to get in/out of car. Dogs have harnesses with seat belt ends that go into rear seat belt clicker fittings.

    My dog loves the back of my CR-V he gets in lies down and then gets up when we arrive wherever we are going.
    No need for him to be on the seats which he could put his leg between and injure himself. There's more scope for him to get injured sitting on the seats than being in the large back of the CR-V.
