First details and disguised pictures of the new 2012 Honda Civic

The first deatils of the new Honda Civic are starting to emerge.

In the run-up to the car's official launch at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September, Honda is releasing a series of pictures and videos. The first - featured here - concentrate on the ride, handling and quality.

Honda says that the ninth generation Civic hatchback will offer stand-out looks combined with class-leading space for passengers and luggage – and will continue to deliver peace of mind with low running costs, through Honda’s famed and unparalleled reliability.

The company also claims that quality and comfort levels have improved dramatically over the outgoing model and that a considerable amount of effer has gone into improving the ride and handling.

The new Civic has been designed exclusively for Europe and has been extensively tested on the region’s roads. It goes on sale during 2012.
