2017 Honda Civic Hatchback in pipeline, Geneva launch soon

Civic Hatchback Prototype

Honda is working on plans to showcase the new Civic hatchback at 2016 Geneva Motor Show after putting out the sedan and coupe body styles last year. The Japanese brand has given us a peak into the 2017 Civic in the pipeline for Europe.

The teaser image released shows the rear of the 5-door prototype. The boomerang tail lamps inherited from the Civic family gels well with the design. Unsurprisingly, the total design language is steeply inclined towards sportiness. The squarish cuts and creases on the rear along with the centrally placed twin tail pipes and the hunky bumper accentuate it’s sporty existence. This new Honda’s production will be handled by the facility in Swindon, UK and it will be shipped to various markets around the world.

The power for the Civic, as announced by Honda earlier, will come from a 1.0-litre 3-cylinder turbocharged unit good for 127 hp and 200 Nm of torque. This will be hooked up to a 6-speed manual transmission. A beefier 1.5-litre turbo petrol unit is also expected to make its way into the Civic’s engine bay. In 2017, the 6-speed manual may get attached to the 1.5 which currently comes exclusively with a CVT transmission.

What do you think?



  1. DId they use pipeline to transport

  2. looks like a Hyundai veloster

  3. Hope they bring the Type-R here. Pretty much the only worthy opponent to the Focus RS; aside the Golf R of-course.

    • I check with the dealer why they don’t bring the type-r over here. When people see the car, the first question they ask is “is there one with automatic?”
