Honda have dipped their toe into the pre-Paris hype again with the first pictures of the newly facelifted Honda Civic.
It’s definitely a refresh rather than a re-imagination, we had to take a minute to spot the differences but they are there.
Up front we get a new, more aggressive bumper, with redesigned air intakes and new, round foglights. The headlights have also been refreshed, with LED’s arrived to ring the lower half.
At the back the long strip of red that stretched across between the lights has been replaced by a metal one that matches the body colour, and shrouds a more traditional middle brakelight cluster.
Either side of that the lights have been given a refresh and there is a new bumper below including, at least on the release, a faux-diffuser.
Inside you will also struggle to see a difference, but the 2015 Civic will contain Honda Connect in-car audio and information system, which is housed in a touchscreen that runs Android.
More info will appear when the show kicks off in Paris.
