Honda Civic Hatchback Teased Ahead of 2016 Geneva Debut

Prototype will reveal new variant’s exterior styling.

Honda has released the first teaser for the Civic hatchback, which will debut at the 2016 Geneva auto show. Though Honda calls the car a "prototype," the car is essentially a near-production concept. The exterior-only concept will preview the production Civic hatch, which will be built in the U.K. and exported to global markets including the U.S. This will mark the first time Honda offers a Civic hatchback in the U.S. market since the seventh generation, which was sold between 2000 and 2005 model years.

Based on the lone teaser, the Civic hatch features the same C-shaped taillights first seen on the Civic sedan. However, they don't continue across the rear like in the Civic coupe. The lower part of the rear fascia features two large, centrally positioned exhaust tips and an exaggerated rear diffuser that nearly reaches the taillights.

Last year, we caught a Honda Civic Type R prototype in hatchback guise testing in the Nrburgring wearing full camouflage and a large rear wing. Unlike the usual two-box hatchback design, the camouflaged Civic Type R prototype's hatch was more of a liftback like the one found on the departed Honda insight. The Civic Type R will go on sale in the U.S. for the first time after it debuts in 2017 as a 2018 model.
