I did have a lok at this newish kind of trunk cover at a motor show(well it ain't a parcel shelf), to me it is a bit of an answer to a question nobody asked. In a hatchback with a rather fast profile like the Civic a normal parcel shelf makes more sense to me, as you normally don't load to the roof unless you fold the seats flat, as the rather shallow space between head rests and rear window gives little extra room. in A CUV or estate this roll out things are good, as you regularly can leave it "open", and the I must say I don#t care if it is built in traditionally or turned by 90 like here....

I've always found parcel shelves to be extremely annoying and finicky. It's a pain to fit them back in and attach them correctly. This solution seems to help by flipping the assembly to a more manageable width. Looks easier to me.

Whether it's very useful in the Civic hatch itself is a question, but the contraption can now be applied elsewhere.

What he said^^. I have no cargo cover, and I'd love one for my Fit, although you can hardly see through the tint.

Who could have imagined that someone would find a way to make the Civic look even more busy and annoying looking? The Civic begs for a styling redo that gets rid of all the Pontiac-worthy surface excitement. It has a wonderful shape that is damned by ugly detailing.

there's no accounting for poor taste and why the Mazda 3 isn't a better seller is a mystery to me.

I don't see the deals -but in Canada, Civic is the best selling car, so it could be that Honda Canada doesn't feel the need to deal.

This said - strange that they're dealing Civic but not Accord - which is struggling, and this board felt they were un-competitive on lease rates.

The Civic isn't terrible - but that's hardly how I'd describe a car that I'd want to buy. Can you imagine saying 'I bought this because it isn't terrible' lol
