TORRANCE, California — The 2013 Honda Civic sedan, which debuts at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show, gets a "more youthful" makeover, the automaker says.

Honda released two images of the refreshed Civic sedan on Monday. The 2013 Civic sedan takes aim at the 2013 Ford Focus, Toyota Corolla and Hyundai Elantra.

Details include a new "open-mouth" lower bumper, a black honeycomb mesh grille and a new trunk lid. The front end of the Civic is more sculpted and features a more deeply faceted hood.

Honda promised a "collection of sharp new wheel designs," as well.

The 2013 Honda Civic sedan goes on sale November 29. Pricing and full details about the car will be announced on November 29, Honda said in a statement. The 2012 Honda Civic DX sedan starts at $16,745, including a $790 destination charge.

"The 2013 Honda Civic exterior refinements infuse Civic with a more youthful, premium style," said Vicki Poponi, American Honda assistant vice president of product planning, in a statement.

Edmunds says: Looks are as important as pricing and fuel economy in the small-car segment. Are the changes to the 2013 Honda Civic sedan compelling enough to bring more buyers into the fold?
