Right now, the facelifted ninth generation Civic is unveiled to set the wrongs to rights, and it seems like the changes has been done at the right places! New alloy wheels design is spotted. The once 'clean and tidy' front end is added with some flairs, this time with chrome bar and honeycomb grille that flow into the more curvaceous hood. The redesigned front bumper is a welcome too. Chromes definitely provide some upmarket feel to the Civic itself.
At the back, the biggest change must be the redesigned taillights. Gone is the tall-ish taillights with the awkward strip that extend from the taillights into the boot lid. Facelift expands a larger part of the taillights into the bootlid, making a L-shape, thus giving a more stable look for the rear end. New rear bumper with diffuser is also a part of this facelift exercise.
There's no information announced on whether there are any changes done on the performance or handling part yet.
