That's right, you can thank the great state of Ohio, "The Heart of it All" and "The Birthplace of Aviation", for the Gen Y/X design of Honda's new Civic Coupe and Si. A team of 20- and 30-somethings was assembled at the company's research center in Raymond, OH to design the body styles, while the sedan was apparently developed by, who knows, stodgy old farts in Japan? Actually, we're totally down with the look of the Coupe and Si, the styling of which isn't of the over-the-top tuner variety. (Ahem, SRT-4, cough, cough) Whoever designed the off-beat interior with the two-tier gauge pod, however, needs his/her head examined.
