Post 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback Prototype Unveiled





Quote:
The 10th Gen Civic Hatchback's prototype is making its global debut at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show and we have all the juicy details for you right here.

Sitting 20 mm lower than the current generation and with a 30 mm wider and 130 mm longer body, the new Civic Hatchback?s long wheelbase and short overhangs will provide you with engaging driving dynamics.

The Hatchback facia features large aggressive air intakes, LED headlights and daytime running lights which flows under the sculpted bonnet with the front fender curves to accentuate the wheel arches. That sweeping line from the front continues along the side, cutting through both door handles and continuing onto the C-shaped LED rear lights in a sleek line. A second line underneath it starts from the front wheels and moves upwards as it progresses along the two doors until it connects with the rear wheel arches. These lines were designed to emphasise the Hatchback's dynamic forward-leaning stance. The aggressive lines continue in the rear with angular creases and large vents similar to the ones from the bumper.

That ass is HUGE!!!! It reminds me too much of the Crosstours. I was hoping for something a bit more like the Impreza hatchback. If this prototype had 2 less doors, I think it would look alright.

I like my hatchbacks to look a little more like a hatchback and less like a sedan with a hatch added as an afterthought. The 2015/16 VW Golf gets it right in the aesthetic department (I may be a little biased since our other vehicle is a 15 Golf SEL). I'll never understand why hatchbacks aren't more popular in America. IMHO a hatch offers you more versatility than a car with a trunk. I guess that's why I own two hatchback vehicles.

I'm seriously considering a new Golf SE. I went and sat in one and it's such a nice car. I'm a little weary of the vw badge though. What's your overall opinion seeing as how your also a Honda owner?

I agree with you 100%. Before I bought the HRV I was seriously considering either a VW, Subaru, or Mazda. I love the look of hatchbacks, and for the active lifestyle I have they would have been perfectly capable of handling everything I needed.

In the end though my wife's desire for an SUV influenced our decision, so the HRV was a good compromise. It's not as large as a full sized SUV, and not as small as a hatchback. So far I'm loving it.

I LOVE my VW Golf, but we wanted an SUV for our new 2nd car and the VW Tiguan is smaller than the HRV and only gets 21-26 MPG. I can't figure that out for the life of me as our 1.8 liter turbo Golf gets 30ish easy. We traded in our Pilot with 237,000 miles on it for the HRV (I hate what they've done to the CRV) and hope we get at least that many out of this one.

It's not that I'm old...Your music really does suck.

At least on the outside, the Tiguan is larger, and is closer in size to the CR-V:

CR-V: 179″ L x 72″ W x 65″ H
Tiguan: 175″ L x 71″ W x 67″ H
HR-V: 169″ L x 70″ W x 63″ H

I also thought the Tiguan was more in line with the CRV size wise, but when we began comparing, the interior dimensions on the HRV were slightly better in every category. Plus at least 6-10 MPG more.

The more I look at this thing, the more I like it. In black or very dark blue, of course. Too bad my body is too worn out to be comfortable in a Civic, anymore. I could see one of these in my driveway.

That's the amazing thing about the Fit and its big brother the HR-V: they are bigger on the inside than the outside!

I bet the diesel version of the Tiguan gets better mileage than the gas version. I wonder why it's not available in North America?
