The upcoming Honda Civic Hatchback is set to be revealed at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show but someone has managed to snap a few pictures of it while the car was being tested on public roads under camouflage.
Word from autoguide.com is that this prototype is actually the production ready version Civic Hatchback and it looks very sporty. Like the Civic Sedan’s front, the Hatchback seems to be sporting that 10th gen mask like facia with a set of LED headlights and the only difference is an extra lower splitter. Even the rump is similar with its rounded shape but with a new center mounted twin exhaust.
Under the hood could be a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine with an output of around 200 horsepower or a naturally aspirated 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, similar to the rest of the new Civic lineup. Let’s not forget that Honda is working on a turbo/manual pairing for the Hatchback too so you could be seeing a manual 1.5-liter four-cylinder turbo in the future.
Its Europe launch is set for early 2017 and then the U.S. launch will follow. Until then, we’ll most likely hear more once the concept model has been revealed at the 2016 Geneva show.
