If we never venture into the unknown how do we get anywhere new?

After all, treading along a common path will never lead to something new or innovative.

That's why when pursuing a new and improved Civic the Honda engineers had to embark on a journey into 'the unknown'.

When designing the interior of the new Civic, the Honda engineers realised they needed 'Happiness' to be their guide.

For them it was the image of a 'Happy Dog' in the back seat of the car which made them keep the magic seats.

So play the 'Follow Happy game' and see for yourself - and if you have a microphone, make sure it's on before you hit play!

Also don't forget, the new Honda Civic will be used next season in the MSA British Touring Car Championship by both Honda Racing's Matt Neal and Gordon Shedden and Pirtek Racing's Andy Jordan and Jeff Smith.

They're sure to be Happy!
