2012 LA: 2013 Honda Civic gets a new butt, standard rear-view camera and Pandora

As promised, Honda moved very fast in upgrading its Civic for the 2013 model year following negative reviews from critics for the 2012 model year version.

“Our industry has never been more competitive or fast changing, and a significant refresh of Civic, America’s best-selling compact car, just one model year after its debut as an all-new model shows true speed to market,” said John Mendel, American Honda executive vice president of Sales. “Our corporate direction is to provide our customers with great products with speed, affordability and low CO2 emissions. There is no better example of this direction than today’s introduction of the 2013 Honda Civic.”

The 2013 Honda Civic Sedan receives a bunch of new design changes including some subtle changes to the front to some extreme redesigning at the rear. On the inside, the 2013 Honda Civic gets softer touch materials, a new host of standard features including Bluetooth, rearview camera, Pandora, SMS text message feature, and steering wheel audio controls.

Prices for the 2013 Honda Civic jump up an average of $160 dollars with prices starting at $18,165 for the Civic LX Sedan.
