Demonstrating the importance of the US market to Honda, the Japanese carmaker chose the last major car show in the US - the New York Auto Show - to unveil the concept in April.
Honda told us the concept previewed an “epic” next-gen Civic, and now the already-revealed US-sped sedan model will be joined by the production version of the coupe.
There’s no preview to the production Civic coupe besides the sedan and the concept we’ve already seen (pictured), suggesting that the road-ready version won’t stray too far from the concept.
Timing is also sharp for Honda, as the tenth-generation sedan, revealed in September, goes on sale to US customers from next week.
In the US at least, the coupe will share much of the Civic sedan’s running gear including 1.5 and 2.0 litre four-cylinder engines, matched with either a six-speed manual transmission or a CVT automatic.
A five-door hatch version for the US market is expected to follow the coupe’s unveiling, but timing has yet to be confirmed.
Honda’s new Clarity fuel-cell vehicle will also be on show in Los Angeles ahead of a US sales debut in 2016 (this follows its unveiling at the recent Tokyo Motor Show).
