The 11th generation Honda Civic is said to make its official debut in the second quarter of 2021. However, leaked images and information about the car have already been circulating online. The latest leaked info about the all-new Civic is the possible color options.
The prototype version of the 11th generation Honda Civic
The said color options were posted in the forums of CivicXi.com by someone with the TigerEyeJazz username. Of note, the leaked color options posted in the said forum are not yet official, and there’s a chance that it might not be 100 percent accurate. As such, take this news with a grain of salt.
The color options for the 2022 Honda Civic reportedly include the following: Aegean Blue, Rallye Red, Platinum White Pearl, Lunar Silver, Crystal Black Pearl, and Sonic Gray. The said exterior paints are also available in the outgoing global model of the Civic.
The report added that there will be two new exterior colors for the 2022 Civic, which are Meteorite Gray and Morning Mist. The said new colors don’t sound too exciting but that perception might change once the 2022 Civic is officially launched.

To put things in perspective, the Philippine-spec 10th generation Civic is available in either of the following: Cosmic Blue Metallic, Ignite Red, Platinum White Pearl, Modern Steel Metallic, and Lunar Silver Metallic.
The prototype of the 11th generation Honda Civic was introduced globally last November 2020. It features a sleeker and a more mature styling as compared to the aggressive look seen on the 10th-generation Honda Civic.
The leaked images of the production version of the 11th generation Honda Civic surfaced online this month. The said images came from China, and it basically confirmed that the final production version looks similar to the prototype model. The prototype and the production version look similarly alike with subtle design changes. But the overall look of the 2022 Honda Civic resembles the prototype model.
