The New Honda Civic Hatchback, due to be launched in early 2017, has made its world debut at the Geneva Motor Show. The new Civic Hatchback is the latest new Civic since the release of the popular Honda Civic Type R, which also made its debut at Geneva in 2015.
The exterior design prototype is a departure from previous incarnations of the Civic. The new larger and wider wheels of the prototype give the Civic a confident stance and the sleek, strong body-lines show the Civic’s sporty, dynamic style.
Speaking of the design, Project Leader Daisuke Tsutamori, said: ‘The result is a marriage of distinctive and sporty design, rewarding driving dynamics and versatile practicality.’
Three new powertrain options will be available in the new Honda Civic – 1.0 litre and 1.5 litre VTEC TURBO petrol engines and a revised 1.6 litre i-DTEC diesel unit. The petrol engines offered feature a completely new engine structure and newly developed turbo systems. The 1.6 litre i-DTEC diesel engine has also been revised to be more lightweight whilst still ensuring high durability levels.
The current multi-award winning Honda Civic has proven itself to be a high performance, reliable and stylish car with impressive attention to detail.
