Even before it’s big reveal, a photo of the 2016 Civic sedan has been leaked online.

The car was reportedly spotted in Ann Arbor, Michigan without a camouflage, as is custom with vehicles that have not been released in the market, reported Christian Today.

Based on a report by Digital Trends, the new 2016 Honda Civic has chrome-grilled wheels and LED headlights, adding to its upscale and high end look in comparison to previous models.

Among the features of the new Civic is that it will be powered by 1.5-liter VTEC Turbo engine that has become a standard for 10th-generation Civics.

According to a report by Autoguide, there will also be a 2.0-liter four cylinder engine version, which will lead the path in terms of power and performance.

The turbocharged engine will also come in EX-T, EX-L and Touring trims of the Civic. Meanwhile, the two liter engine found in the LX Civic has claimed that it will be the most powerful base engine for a Civic.

The 2.0-liter engine would reach up to 158 hp while the turbocharged 1.5-liter unit will reach 174-hp.

In terms of fuel economy, it is expected to reach an excess of 40 mpg on the highway, owing to the 12 percent improvement in aerodynamics.

Also expected from the new Civic is wider space, and more choices as it will be available in sedan, coupe, and five door hatchback. Honda will also reportedly offer a Si model for the first time and Type R model, according to Autoguide.

The new Civic will also have a front strut suspension and multi-link rear end design as well as variable gear ratio steering, sturdier front and rear stabilizer bars, 4-wheel disc brakes and handling assist brake-torque vectoring.
