Next-gen Civic delayed to refocus on efficiency

Honda Delays the Next Civic - Wheels Blog - NYTimes.com

Quote:
...the company decided midway through the development of the next model to rein in plans to make it larger, heavier and less fuel-efficient.

Instead, the focus will be on making the new Civic about the same size as the outgoing model and to put it on a diet that will yield more nimble handling and improved fuel economy.
This is good news. The Civic is nice, but I know they can build a much more efficient car if they make that a priority.

...submarines look like sharks in water.

...airplanes look like birds in air.

...but, cars don't need to look like boxes on the road!
