Aerodynamic Enhancements

The 2012 Civic Sedan and Civic Coupe are just as aerodynamically efficient as their appearance suggests, resulting in improved fuel efficiency, reduced emissions, improved handling at higher speeds and lower levels of interior noise. The improvements are the result of extensive modeling and testing conducted during the design process. Examples include:

A guide under the front bumper directs the flow of air into the engine compartment for cooling.

Lightweight plastic parts under the engine bay, the fuel tank and parts of the rear underbody enhance airflow.

Front spoiler and strakes ahead of the front and rear tires help direct air flow around the tires and wheel wells.

A new flat under-floor significantly improves aerodynamic efficiency by helping air to move over, around and under the vehicle - resulting in a significant 3.4-percent lower coefficient of drag as compared to the 2011 Civic.

Low-drag side mirrors reduce wind noise by minimizing turbulence (Civic EX and Civic EX-L models also include heated side mirrors).
