Honda will continue the rollout of its 10th-generation Civic compact-car lineup in Paris.
The production Civic hatchback remains faithful to the concept that appeared back in March at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, and shares styling cues with the existing sedan and coupe models.
It will get the same engines in the U.S. as well, including 2.0-liter naturally aspirated and 1.5-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engines. Both engines will be offered with CVT automatic and 6-speed manual transmissions, the latter being offered in combination with the turbocharged engine for the first time.
Honda will use the Civic hatchback as the basis for the next generation of the sporty (and not all that green) Type R model, which will be sold in the U.S. for the first time. The standard Civic hatchback goes on sale this fall as a 2017 model, while the Type R is expected to launch during calendar year 2017. Credit: Honda
