Honda refreshed its Civic sedan for 2013, with a focus on exterior changes; the automaker is concentrating on connectivity systems on the updated 2014 Civic. It announced two new features that will debut on the sedan: the Display Audio touch-screen and the next generation of the HondaLink application-based platform.
Honda says the Display Audio touch-screen, which we got a close look at during the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show, offers the largest screen in the class and brings smartphone-like functionality inside the vehicle. Drivers use phonelike pinches, swipes and taps to access audio, phonebook, media, vehicle information and navigation features. Pandora internet radio is built into the interface, and functions like giving a song a thumbs-up or viewing the album art can be done via the screen.
