Honda’s new tenth-generation Civic has finally been revealed and Autocar has some exclusive images of a red version of the five-door hatchback before its debut at 2016 Paris Motor Show.

To be built in the automaker’s Swindon manufacturing facility, the hatchback will be offered with two turbocharged petrol power plants: a 1.0 turbo three-cylinder that’s good for 129bhp and 147lb ft of torque, and a 1.5-liter VTEC turbo that can bang out 180bhp and 192 lb-ft of torque. Both will come with the choice of a six-speed manual gearbox or a CVT auto.

There’s also going to be a diesel option later on and it’ll use a modified version of existing 118bhp 1.6-litre diesel. We may even see a hybrid powertrain under that body but, an all-electric civic is just not going to be possible.

Speaking of bodies, the Civic hatchback is going to be assembled using new processes. With a £200 million investment, the Swindon plan has been outfitted with new production technologies and processes which will be used in the production of the new civic. One such process employs a “high-efficiency joining technique”. The inner frame of the hatch is assembled first, then the outer frame followed by the joints. This new technique contributes to the 52% increases in the body’s overall stiffness.

The Civic hatchback will come first, followed by a Civic Tourer estate and the much anticipated Type R hot hatch. Prices have not been released yet so we may have to wait until the 2016 Paris Motor Show for the MSRP.

Looks great in red, although with us knowing there will be a Type R version, white is the best color to get this in. Then add some red pin striping and outlining for that Type R look, something great for all those black lower pieces.
must be the sport touring model since it has the center exit exhaust.
The regular Sport will have the same exhaust with regular headlights and a few other items but still bada$$
Think those fog lights will come standard?
I would hope so. Definitely need them to break up that huge vent a bit.

Fog lights are standard on all the Sport models, both touring and LX sport, as well as the EXL trim.
Perfect. It would look super weird without them lol
