Honda Civic Hatchback Clear Pictures Leaked Ahead of Geneva Motor Show Debut

The news that Japanese carmaker, Honda, is working on a hatchback version of its popular sedan Civic has been around for quite some time now. A concept version of the car is supposed to be showcased at the Geneva Motor Show 2016 next month. But lucky for us we won’t have to wait that long, because recently some new images of the Civic hatchback concept have popped up on the internet ahead of its official debut.

The new Civic hatchback is based on the latest generation of Honda Civic sedan and carries the same aggressive characteristics of the latter. While it is claimed that the prototype seen in the images is just the concept version of the car, but one cannot help but notice that it looks more like a production version with a sporty body kit. The new 5-door hatch displays the same character lines of the Civic sedan along with a well sculpted bonnets, sleek LED headlamps with LED daytime running lights and the sharp metal finish of the grille.

At the front the concept version gets a massive sporty bumper with large air intakes and lime green accents. The flared wheel arches hang low over the new stylish alloy wheels and are complimented by sharp ORVMs and side skirts. The rear section on the other hand looks very busy and quite aggressive. The car gets two spoilers – a roof mounted and a tailgate mounted, along with a well-sculpted hatch and C-shaped LED tail lamps. Although it all looks futuristic, designers at Honda seems to have gone a little overboard with the aggressive quotient, especially with the rear bumper that comes with large air intake-like elements and dual nozzle exhaust system.
