Tailored tail
gallery 2012 honda civic vs 2013 rear 2

All around the car, the sheet metal is pretty much the same but check out that new rear end. Actually, it's not new, it's just a new pair of taillights. But a like a nice piece of jewelry or a fancy new necktie, it brings everything to a whole new level.

A local Honda dealership, Paragon Honda in Queens, provided a 2012 Civic from their remaining inventory for us to compare directly to the new 2013 Civic that Honda provided. Besides the cosmetic changes, I found out, Honda's engineers were as clever as the designers in making the most out of a few little changes.
