Honda dusted off concept versions of the ninth generation Civic Coupe and Sedan at the 2011 Detroit Auto Show today, and the automaker says that along with mildly updated exteriors, both vehicles will wear improved interiors compared to the current-generation Civic. Judging from the history of Honda concepts, there's a good chance that the production versions of both the four and two-door Civics will be very similar to the vehicles you see above. That means that the Civic Coupe will wear styling influenced heavily by the current Accord Coupe.

Meanwhile, four-door buyers can expect an exterior design very similar to the 2011 Civic. Though the sedan's front-fascia wears a little bit more menace than the current design, the carried-over grille and headlights are more than a little familiar. Out back, new tail lamps and a re-sculpted trunk deck dominate the view.

Honda says that for the first time, buyers in all 50 states will be able to get their hands on the natural-gas Civic. Previously, the green machine was only available in select markets. Additionally, the Civic Hybrid will now boast lithium-ion batteries as opposed nickel-metal hydride. Hit the jump for the full press release.

Not bad looking, but doesn't make me want one. The rear end looks kind of Toyotaish to me.

On the coupe, from the A-pillar back it looks Toyota Solara-y

I like the interior on the current Civics, it isn't trying to riff off of anybody elses interior.

I saw a sedan driving near a dealer today. Looked the same as last generations basically.

I didn't see any on the lot so they must be doing PDI or something. It did have the stickers for sale price and everything on it though.

why is it so tall, especially the ass end? so you can blind people with the tail lights?

It's not that tall. I don't know who could be blinded by tail lights lol.

I went to the dealer today to check it out. It's uglier in person but it'll grow on me sooner or later.

It's an illusion in the pictures. The crease along the side gives the impression that the backend sticks up really high.
