New Honda Civic teased ahead of Geneva Motor Show debut

Honda has released a teaser image of a prototype design of the new Honda Civic, set to make its European launch in 2017.

The hatchback appears to take design cues from the US-spec Civic sedan and coupe, with angular rear lights and a sportier profile. The teaser also shows a centrally-mounted twin exhaust.

The new Civic will be produced At Honda’s Swindon plant in the UK, and exported globally – including the US.

Currently, the Honda Civic is built at plants worldwide, including Swindon for the European market and Indiana for the American market. The move towards making the Civic a global car will see production ramped up at Swindon – with a £200 million confirmed for the plant earlier in the year.

The 2017 Honda Civic will be powered by the same 1.5-litre turbocharged as the US Civic, with a three-cylinder 1.0-litre also mooted. A diesel engine will also be offered.

We’ll see the prototype Civic in the metal at next month’s Geneva Motor Show, where we’ll be reporting live.
