A lot of drivers around Billings and Lockwood have been asking: “What will the Honda Civic Hatchback Prototype offer?” The upcoming follow-up to the wildly popular 2016 Honda Civic and 2016 Honda Civic Coupe has generated plenty of attention among automotive enthusiasts, and rightly so — it seems to have been made with exactly them in mind. Here’s everything we know so far.

Civic Hatchback Prototype Power

The Honda Civic Hatchback Prototype has clearly been designed with a focus on performance. Anyone who isn’t convinced of that by its sporty exterior is likely to lose all doubt once they put the pedal to the metal — every Civic Hatchback Prototype will be powered by the same cutting-edge 1.5L DOHC direct-injected Turbo engine.

A CVT will be available, but the Civic Hatchback Prototype’s agile nature is a great fit for the quick-shifting 6-speed manual option. With turbocharged power beneath the hood and two sophisticated transmissions, this hatchback should provide a stunning ride.

Civic Hatchback Prototype Design

We can now confirm that the Civic Hatchback Prototype is being built on the same world-class platform as the 10th-generation Civic Sedan, but it brings its own character to that design. Daisuke Tsutamori, chief exterior stylist for the 2017 Civic Hatchback Prototype, remarked that “This vehicle represents a marriage of distinctive and sporty design, rewarding driving dynamics and versatile practicality.”

The Civic Hatchback Prototype displays larger wheels and tiles for an assured, ready-to-pounce stance, short overhangs and a sleek cabin area help create a dynamic feel, and LED headlights and daytime running lights ensure that the model looks bold and thoroughly modern. Sleek and swept-back body lines convey an attitude of lean power while promising swift, aerodynamic performance.

Ultimately, the Civic Hatchback Prototype looks like exactly what it is: an evolutionary step towards a more performance-orientated Civic.

The Honda Civic Hatchback Prototype Showcases Great Things to Come

This model will mark the next step in the 10th-generation Civic lineup, which has garnered critical acclaim in addition to capturing the hearts of drivers around Billings, Lockwood, and across the country. If you thought this intense popularity might be approaching its peak, the Civic Hatchback Prototype is proof that you’re wrong.
