It annoys me were not going to get that Civic saloon nor the Coupe, they both look superb and going by all the reports superbs cars too.
Guys skip to 8.52mins in the review video above, you can see the bodyshape of the Euro Civic I think, thats a hatchback body by the looks of it and the presenter says its the Euro body!
So the back end is basically the sedan back but without the boot.
good spot. so US gets coupe and saloon and Euro gets the hatch.. I think because Swindon is going to supply the Civic to USA the front 3/4 might actually be shared which means great looks and because Euro has lax rules for front crash as opposed to USA, slightly shorter nose as well... can't wait to see it.
It might just be wishful thinking but this could be to leave room for new Accord saloon and coupe.......
Come on Honda you know you want to.....
I wish I could be optimistic like you John, but can't see it happening anytime soon.
No it's not looking very likely is it @exec ?
There, there We shall not give up! Long live the Accord!
New Euro Civic will be prototyped next month at Geneva, can't wait
I just hope they nail the side profile as that could end up looking awkward with this design, much like the 9th Generation, loving the sketch image of the rear though
Feel like going to Geneva again for the motor show last year was good @DeviateDefiant ?
damn.. that looks heavily inspired the USA 2016 Civic which is a good thing although that might mean it is going to be massive. We all know Honda 'concepts' are usually very close to production so this looks very promising
Yeh its supposed to be similar looking since it is now a global model but I'm worried it might look a bit squashed and awkward without the sedan boot, still gutted that we won't get either the saloon or the coupe.
