LOS ANGELES – The 2016 Honda Civic Coupe will make its world debut next week at the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show, American Honda Motor Co. said on Tuesday.
The highly anticipated Civic coupe, which is expected to arrive at Honda dealerships soon, takes on such competitors as the Kia Forte Koup, Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ.
“Like its sedan counterpart, the new Civic coupe targets world-class levels of sporty performance, ride refinement and cabin quietness along with class-leading fuel efficiency and safety performance, powered in part by two all-new powertrains, including a first-ever turbocharged power plant for the U.S. Civic,” the automaker said in a statement.
Pricing was not announced.
This is the second in a series of new Civic models. They include a sedan, coupe, high-performance Si models, a five-door hatchback and the Civic Type-R.
In addition to the Civic coupe, Honda will roll out the U.S. version of the Clarity Fuel Cell vehicle, the successor to the Honda FCX Clarity. The Honda Clarity goes on sale in the U.S. following its Japan launch in March 2016.
No pricing, sales or leasing information for the U.S. market has been released yet.
Honda said the Clarity will have a “more than 300 miles” U.S. driving-range estimate.
The five-seat Clarity competes with the four-passenger 2016 Toyota Mirai sedan, which has a 312-mile range.
Edmunds says: Honda is poised to grab the spotlight at the L.A. show with these two key vehicles.
