2020 Civic SI Coupe. 2000 Honda Prelude (donated to charity).
For the last couple of generations, Civic has alternate between good looking and bland. 8th good looking, 9th meh, 10th good looking, 11th meh. This one is not as bad as the 9th though.

Thanks for all the pics and videos, and taking the time to respond to questions.

I'm now firmly convinced that this is a lame-o Civic design (at least outside - the screen inside doesn't help though) and I may just skip it entirely. The front end just looks *bland*.

Still pissed that Honda assassinated the 10th gen boomerang taillights.

Did we ever get a confirmation on the color of his demo. Is it the blue or the gray?

Curious to know where the Radar for Adaptive Cruise Control is. 10th gen Civic has it behind the driver side bumper, but I don't see a flat surface anywhere that can be housing the sensor. Nor does the Honda emblem seem to be hiding it.
I think I read somewhere that the 11th gen has just the one sensor for all Honda Sense, etc., in the windshield.
"The standard Honda Sensing® suite of active safety and driver assistive technologies uses a new single-camera system that provides a wider field of view than the previous radar-and-camera based system." - Source

An advantage of radar is the ability to "see" in low-to-zero-visibility conditions such as a blizzard, fog, heavy rain, smoke, and darkness.

A camera-only system will gladly run right into a stopped vehicle at full speed if it can't see.

Completely agree. Am eager to try it out during a test drive.
I would have preferred a combination of both radar and camera sensors to eliminate false triggers that was the biggest reason many owners simply turned Honda Sensing off.

You can thank the NHTSA for their vaguely worded safety standard that allows manufacturers to cut cost. There's nothing in the standard mandating operation in the rain nor even a "success rate".

The problem besides false triggers is Honda does not mention the on the fly override nor do people really learn of it. i.e. if cmbs kicks in falsely, just tap the brake and it'll let go immediately. So while annoying (and honestly rare for me to encounter it), you don't have to let it do something unsafe like stop ona highway.
