Kelley Blue Book

In articles read by TheCarConnection.com, reviewers across the board rave about the 2008 Honda Civic Coupe's smart, futuristic looks.

In terms of styling, the 2008 Honda Civic continues to stand out from the crowd after a major face-lift in 2006 on its eighth-generation body style—a “smartly designed” look, according to Edmunds. Kelley Blue Book notes that while exterior style was once "considered the Civic's only weak point," it has become "one of the car's most appealing attributes. With its sharply raked windshield and low profile, the sleek Civic Coupe looks like nothing else on the road." Cars.com agrees, remarking that while in the past the Civic had been “vanilla,” the current car “took a serious right turn at practical and went right to the sci-fi section." Car and Driver says, “The Civic’s styling—the large, fast windshield, minivan-like front end, and UFO-style two-tiered dashboard—incites a bit of controversy, as these are all love-them-or-hate-them elements.”

Proving that the ultramodern looks of the 2008 Honda Civic Coupe are not just skin deep, the Civic's cosmic realignment extends to the cabin. Edmunds notes the "unusual" layout of the instrument panel, and Cars.com observes that the dashboard "is very deep, punctuated by a radical two-tiered display that's straight out of a Star Trek shuttle pod." Automobile observes “the digital readout with blue backlighting fits in well with the cars [sic] sci-fi ambiance.” Kelley Blue Book says the 2008 Honda Civic Coupe "features the most visually futuristic interior of any vehicle on the market," adding that the Civic's "appeal to younger drivers has put Honda back into the good graces of the tuner and aftermarket crowd."


The streamlined, futuristic style of the 2008 Honda Civic Coupe pairs nicely with the smart design Honda has built its reputation on.
