Excerpt:

Used to getting top ratings — and sales — for the Civic, Honda reacted quickly when reviewers, especially Consumer Reports, criticized the 2012 Civic for its less appealing interior and poorer handling than the previous version. The Civic on display today has a sleeker interior and exterior look and reportedly some suspension tuning and other changes to address the handling. Honda was not saying much about any other mechanical changes prior to today’s announcement. The new look borrows some features from the redesigned 2013 Accord midsize sedan, including a lower “open mouth” front bumper and more slender, tapered headlights. The redesigned Civic also goes on sale at dealerships today. 15 Photos Classic cars at the L.A. Auto Show Analysts who have seen the car ahead of the full announcement today reacted positively.

  • Aggregate Sentiment is meant to be an indicator of an individual’s overall sentiment.
  • The Mean is meant to be an indicator of an individual’s average comment sentiment.
  • The Standard Deviation, when there are enough quotes, will indicate an individual’s consistency of sentiment (i.e. a Standard Deviation of 0 would mean they were very consistent in their sentiment and 1 would mean they were very inconsistent).
