Recently, Honda claims that Honda fit, Civic Coupe and Manual-gearbox-equipped Accord will leave the streets and they won’t be produced again. As this company decided to retire these products, it was so mysterious what is the real intention behind this decision.
Now all is clear. As the motor1.com published, in an official letter Honda confirmed the entering of the 11th generation Civic in the spring of 2021. It is so predictable that the new Civic is hatch-back but there is no more information available. Another new coming vehicle is HR-V by considering new necessities of market.
As Honda announced, by end of 2020, the Canada's site stops its Civic Si production line and new Civic will be born in Honda's North American facility in Indiana. The UK's site in Swindon, where the current location of hatchback’s assembly is, would be shut down next year and the Turkey’s factory Civic Sedan assembly will end its work next year.
These changes took so long to be taken. Their team with considering sales and its trends, made these decisions. They hope that by selling Civic hatchback and HR-V, would fill up the empty place of Fit and Civic Coupe. The changes on the R-V are new set of wheels and privacy glass for Sport trims. Meanwhile, Odyssey minivan would have mid-cycle refresh (it goes on sale in August). The new R-V with ultimate up dates could be 2022’s surprise.
Behind other models like Accord sedan and Ridgeline Pickup are some rumors too. They are in the list of announcements too but till now Honda doesn’t say any thing and gave no details. But some thing that so imminent is, is the facelift on these models. We should wait to see what would happen till end of 2020. Accord and Ridgeline would be on the market by the end of the year.
