In addition to the new appearance design,
the eleventh generation Civic introduced BOSE high-end car audio for the car series for the first time. Using Bose Centerpoint 2 and Bose Surround Stage digital acoustic processing technology to carefully adjust the interior space of the new generation of Civic, to provide passengers with a listening experience that is unmatched by cars in the same class.
Bose Centerpoint 2 is responsible for virtualizing stereo music as a multi-channel surround signal,
which is distributed to different speaker combinations throughout the body through SurroundStage, so that passengers can enjoy the emperor status no matter where they are in the car.
BOSE engineers have been stationed in the factory from the initial stage of the prototype to participate in the commissioning, and conduct a full-band test together with the car factory’s technicians to determine the best layout for the 12 speakers.
If the vehicle’s NVH is not up to standard,
no matter how good the sound is, it will be blinded. Honda claims that the new car is the strongest Civic ever, with its torsional rigidity increased by 8%, and bending rigidity increased by 13%. The solid body lays a good foundation for building up to the standard NVH index.
In addition to introducing non-branded audio for the Civic for the first time, Honda also tremblingly presented a full LCD instrument and a nine-inch car screen.
The former is exclusive to the top model and is said to be released to the Civic for the first time; the latter is not standard, and claims to be the largest screen in the Honda family (except Acura).
The appearance of the new Civic is more retro than the previous generation, the wheelbase is longer by 3.6 cm, the whole car is longer by 3.3 cm, and the A-pillar is back to create a slender front:
The new car has added three colors: meteorite, sonic white, and morning mist blue exclusive to the new Civic. All models are equipped with CVT transmission, no other options are provided.
The low- and mid-range Civic is a 7-inch car screen, but all systems support wireless CarPlay-say goodbye to the phone holder! Supplemented by BOSE car audio and Apple Music, the new Civic has no shortcomings in audio.
The top-equipped Civic also has a wireless charging board compatible with the Qi protocol, which can theoretically say goodbye to the phone line while driving.
In terms of road driving and vehicle safety,
Honda introduced the doughnut structure head restraint airbag for the first time in the industry, which can support and stabilize the driver’s head in the event of an accident, and avoid brain damage caused by uncontrolled movements; three-air chamber structure The passenger side airbag also has a similar effect, in which two air chambers bulge to control the occupant’s head swing.
The ACE body structure (Advanced Compatibility Engineering)
adopted by the new generation of Civic has been further enhanced to reduce the hazard to the passenger compartment when the vehicle collides with a large vehicle. The ACE body structure adopts a complex front body frame structure design, combined with a variety of materials to mix and match, trying to absorb, disperse, and deflect the collision energy, and guide it around the passenger compartment.
With a stronger roof, side members and B-pillars, doors, rear wheel arches and C-pillars, the new Civic’s side impact protection capabilities have been further improved.
The latest generation of Honda Sensing’s active safety and driving assistance system uses a new monocular camera, combined with a new version of software and a new processor with improved computing power. The system can identify pedestrians, non-machines, and vehicles faster and more accurately. And road markings.
The Honda Sensing system of the Civic consists of a monocular camera and eight ultrasonic probes.
It has added creeping assistance under congested conditions. It can also prevent false acceleration in both forward and reverse directions (ahhhh terminator?). Provide auxiliary braking under low speed conditions.
The improved Honda Sensing system uses a more natural braking action to perform active cruise control, and the vehicle’s direction adjustment action is more linear when the lane keeping function is turned on.
Attached with the US version of the Civic configuration table, it is clear at a glance whether to increase or decrease the configuration:
