Finally things are starting to heat up with the Hatch for 2017. With this recent mule spied without any heavy camo, it's sign we could be seeing something more soon enough. What do you guys think about it so far?

Those spy shots were posted May 4 in the Motor Authority web site:

I've been putting off getting a new car until the Civic hatchback is available, which looks to be another couple months or so. One of my concerns has been the length of the car, because my spot in our attached garage is pretty short. My 2007 Honda Fit has room to spare but anything longer than 174" really starts to squeeze the space behind my car, which is the path in and out of our house when not using the front door (which we almost never do). The article linked below states the length of the new Civic hatchback will be 4415mm (173.8"), which is about 8.5" shorter than the Civic sedan. I hope they're right.

(there's a nice rendering of the hatchback if you scroll down in the link)

I'm waiting for the hatch and this looks Meh to me. My hopes of something sporty is loosing steam. Looks a little like an after thought design thrown onto the sedan. Hoping it looks better when the skin comes off.

Does look very sedanish. B20Vtec's pics look very much different that Smith's pics at top of post. Even minus camo treatment. If they are the same car, that camo is really effective, because they just don't look the same to me.

Yea I definitely believe the other pictures I posted to coincide with the initial post is not the hatch. I got totally deterred because of the title of the article I got the pictures from. Terribly sorry guys, should have seen that on my own :(

A bit closer to the ground than a CUV but with a taller body, the rendering could pass for one. I think the spied pictures could be just a sedan and we're still waiting for the hatchback production model with a shorter rear.

When brexit happened my first thought was, oh no, will it effect the hatchback civics? In terms of sales here, i hope not, but it remains to be seen. With the Euro in such a bad way i wonder how this could potentially effect the pricing of the hatch.

Or, as stated by go cart, they could opt to ship more of the hatches here than originally planned to make up the likely sales dip in Europe
