2025 Honda Civic Hybrid confirmed along with new small Acura crossover

Honda made several announcements Thursday regarding both its core band and its premium subsidiary, Acura, giving us a taste of what to expect from both brands in 2024. The biggest news is that Acura will add a new small crossover to the lineup, slotted alongside the Integra sedan. We can also expect updates to the Honda Civic — most notably among them the introduction of a 2025 Honda Civic Hybrid model for the new sedan and hatchback — and less significant updates here and there throughout both lineups. 

We know little about this new baby Acura crossover apart from what it isn’t, and that’s a direct import of the CDX sold overseas. Scratch that notion from your mind entirely. Honda wouldn’t comment further, but we suspect the small CUV’s fundamental architecture will be shared with the Honda HR-V, though we wouldn’t be surprised to see it benefit from a powertrain upgrade. This is not to be confused with the Acura ZDX, which is the all-electric crossover due to arrive just about any day now . The ZDX is larger and shares its underpinnings not with anything of Honda’s, but rather GM’s Ultium platform. Elsewhere at Acura, we can expect a thorough interior and exterior update of the MDX and “upgrades” to the RDX. 

Over at Honda, the long-expected Civic Hybrid is now officially go. It will launch this year as both a sedan and hatchback alongside a broader update that will include new styling elements (teased above) and interior upgrades; expect more closer to launch. Honda said the Odyssey will receive updates for the model year too, but did not elaborate on what to expect from the effort. We expect more on that later in 2024.
