second picture down was a great capture of all 3 models which at this point goes a long way in pointing out the differences between them, especially with the sedan and hatch.
thanks for posting these.

Last picture, also included below, is the best look at it which at the same time is a horrible look, not much to make out of it.No problem!
I wonder what the tail lights will look like on the hatchback version. Will it get a light bar across the back? I'm thinking no.
I guess you have a point with that, we'll have to wait to see the specific name they give it whether that be 'Crosstour', like the Accord or something else.the middle one *in the picture of all 3* can not be a hatchback.
can't even use the word hatchback to describe that, at best its a fastback.
because a hatchback = space to put big bulky stuff.
that thing starts to slope down way too early. it needs another foot....then it can start sloping down.
These pictures are of test mules pieced together from various cars, and the first one in the thread is a sedan, not a hatch. We don't really know what the hatch will look like other than it will share the front end with the coupe and sedan.Ok I'm a huge civic fan but didn't Honda learn from the accord crosstour that it didn't sell so my question is why cant the civic get a normal hatchback shape because the spy photos show more of a lift back design than conventional hatch in other renderings i saw from honda
The biggest deciding factors in that is what honda thinks will sell in europe and asia. Because this is a global car now it has to have very wide appeal. The coupe and sedan only really have to appeal to the Americas. But the hatch has a much wider audience.oh ok well lets hope it's a conventional hatch especially if they want to make an r version
Definitely, by importing a somewhat limited number of hatches from europe where they know they'll sell they aren't taking as big a financial risk.Plus side to the hatch is with it doing well in the markets its already in and have been for a while, it probably gave them some justifiable reason to plan to off load some to the american market, acting as a great way to 'test the waters'
Those were the days.bring back the bubble back, bring back the bubble back...
I still have a soft spot for my first car, my 95 Civic sedan. It wasn't fast and it was loud as ****, but it hugged the corners, was super reliable (over 200k miles) and had great MPG. (better than some of my newer ones at times).Those were the days.
These days a hatch Honda would come out with wont even be close to what those were like.
With how cheap those 90's hatches and their parts can be had for it'll make for a nice side project.
