Honda’s interior designers hid an “easter egg” in the console of the 10th generation Civic that people are only now discovering.
The latest Civic (2016 – present) features a graphic design on the backside of its console mat. Simply open up the console, lift the rubber mat at the bottom and flip it over. You’ll see a cool graphic.
There are four U.S. variations depicting race cars , motorcycles, planes and other tech that pay homage to Honda‘s long and storied history as an innovator in the transportation industry.
