Before the launch of its 10th generation Civic, Honda had announced they will be launching the car in various body styles, including a hatchback. Now according to latest reports, photos of new 2016 Honda Civic hatchback concept have been leaked on the internet. The concept car was scheduled to be revealed at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show 2016. The leaked images were made available thanks to Carscoops.
The 5-door 2017 Honda Civic hatchback European model will be launched with the smaller 1.0-liter 3-cylinders turbocharged VTEC engine. The front end of the concept vehicle is quite similar to the current 2016 Honda Civic sedan.
