5 door hb will be a good idea
They also say mid 2016 is likely...Now, there are a few caveats here, the largest of which is that when asked for comment, Honda told us that the Nikkei story is pure speculation, and that it has made “no announcements about Civic production for the U.S. market, relative to [its] European operations.” Also, whatever U.K.-built Civic is sent here, if it is at all, it won’t be sent here any time soon, leading us to believe we’re looking forward not to the current-generation Civic hatchback, but the next-generation model. Today’s Civic hatch wasn’t designed with North American regulations in mind—hence why we won’t be getting the epic Civic Type R—and rumor has it that the next-gen Civic will be a global product, meaning from California to Japan there will be Civics sold in more or less the same form.
Basically that is a "neither confirm nor deny" type statement. Only leads to more speculation.This is from Car and Driver:

Yes, and unlike a wagon it would have better chances at successA hatchback isn't like diesel or a wagon. It would be quite popular in the US, so I don't see why they wouldn't sell a hatchback Civic in the US.
Yes it is, they just call them CUV'sYes, and unlike a wagon it would have better chances at success
as many already know, America isn't hatch market.
Doesn't change the fact that actual wagons don't cut it, changes are needed, those changes that make them into CUV to then be able to be sold.Yes it is, they just call them CUV's
yes it does, because fundamentally there is nothing wrong with wagons, but the automakers spent years telling people that bigger is safer, but CAFE has constrained them from building bigger vehicles, so they took small compact euro hatches, put them on stilts and said LOOK SUV!Doesn't change the fact that actual wagons don't cut it, changes are needed, those changes that make them into CUV to then be able to be sold.
would make sense for the limited volume hatch imports, like OP wrote 02-05 Si...That Ep3 sure is beautiful. Thinking the Type-R will be hatch only.
