Click above for gallery of the 2009 Civic Coupe

Just last week we revealed official images and specifications for the updated 2009 Honda Civic in sedan and hybrid body styles. Lest you coupe fans feel left out, we've finally found information on Honda's newish two-door in DX, LX, EX/EX-L and Si levels from a PDF brochure and the brand's U.S. website. As with the sedan, the front and rear of the Civic Coupe see the most change, though it'll take a trained eye to spot the differences out back. The front grille, though, looks more aggressive and sports a new honeycomb pattern, and the lower bumper has been redesigned with new air intakes. We likey. Also of note are the new clear turn signal lenses. On the inside, the available navigation system flips down to reveal a slot-loading CD player and inputs for digital audio cards, whatever those are. There's also a new USB music interface in the center console so you can just plug a flash drive full of tunes into the dash. A 140-hp, 1.8-Liter i-VTEC® engine powers the standard coupe and offers up to 36 highway mpg. Honda hasn't released any of this information through its media website, and the consumer website still isn't showing any 2009 Si models, so expect the big H to release more information on its '09 coupes in the coming weeks. In the meantime, take a look through our gallery below to chart all the changes. Thanks for the tip, Ricky!

      Am I missing something? All these "new" cars look the same.
      An AMG Mercedes passed me several weeks ago and I thought it was a large Honda,until I noticed the AMG badge on the trunk lid.
      WTF, doe nobody know how to design a car anymore?

      I have an 08 for a daily beater and I like the changes. Of course, your getting a 17,000 or so car, so I have always said its a good car for the buck. Resale, gas mileage, reliability, decent looks. Not much here worth complaining about really.

      Liked the old grill better. Hope they did something about the aluminum shift knob in the Si, that thing gets way too hot/cold.
        • 6 Years Ago
        I have the same sorta shift knob in my RSX type S. I know it gets hot or cold, but I love the grip and weight on it.
        • 6 Years Ago
        no way they old grill is @SS. I hope we are finally getting away from the chrome mustache grill. Every freakin car has it these days and it looks horrible. Everything from mazda6, to last gen accord and civic, to saturn, even the freakin WRX STI has that stupid mustache grill. I cant say how much i hate that styling trend. glad to see it go on the civic, please shave teh mustache on every other car.

      figures they change the front which was fine and leave the back which needed work, the coupe front with the sedan back would've been nice.
      • 6 Years Ago
      My buddy of mine was just in the market for an Si, and I instructed him to get the Sedan, as the coupe looked way to girly... this one definitely looks alot better.

      I've hated Honda's split instrument pod from day one, and I still hate it. It's the one thing that kept me from even considering a Civic when I was looking for a new car. Fix that and I'm sure they'd sell even more of these.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Love that they got rid of the grill thingy on the front. I mean, I know Si's don't have chrome ones, but this looks cleaner.

      I guess I'll get one of next year's instead of the previous ones...can't wait :)

      (Looking at picture #37):
      Who the heck carries their music on a PCMCIA card? Guess the top level execs at Honda have been living under a cave.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Using a PCMCIA card slot allows for flexibility of adapting any of the various SD or CF cards out there without having a whole bunch of ugly holes in the head unit.
        • 6 Years Ago
        its a PCMCIA card so you can get an adapter.

        that way it can use any thing like CF, SD, microSD etc.

        Its the same way in other cars (mercedes C class with command is like that)

      Those wheels look horrendous!
        • 6 Years Ago
        Those wheels are gorgeous in comparison to the fugly wheels on the Civic Hybrid.
      • 6 Years Ago
      bleh....give me a GX with all the options of an EX.
        • 6 Years Ago
        This thing look horrendous. ewww booo
        I usually like civic, but this model killed it for me.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Leak of LEAKS! I TOTALLY know what the next Civic looks like now. Those idiots and their premature brochure pictures! They need to keep those under wraps until the car comes out so the world can be shocked and awed at the sheer scope of the change.
