U.S. Honda fans have been in despair ever since Honda decided to keep its super sexy Civic hatchback off these shores. Now it drives the spike further into our hearts with this rendering of the new hot hatch. Honda will unveil a new generation Civic in 2010 and according to AutoExpress will be inspired by the OSM concept seen at the British Motor Show.
The future Civic hatchback will carry over from the current one, most notably the trademark single strip light cluster at the rear. Euro Honda fans will also see a that the split rear screen has been dropped to improve visibility. Shallow glass areas, broad shoulders and a nose-down stance give this three-door model a sporty and purposeful look.
It will also get a new 1.5-liter IMA hybrid engine with more than 150bhp and sub-CO2 120g/km emissions. Could this also then be a preview of the new CRX?
