Honda Civic Hatchback to make regional debut soon
Honda is set to reveal the Civic Hatchback in the ASEAN region. The first region to receive this model is Thailand as they will be building the said model in the country.
To mark the impending arrival of this model, Honda Cars Thailand has released a teaser photo for the Civic Hatchback. While only a section of the car is seen, expect the ASEAN-spec Civic Hatchback to closely resemble that of its European counterpart.
Styling wise, it is similar to the sedan from the front to the center of the car. As with all Hondas of this era, the Civic Hatchback features the automaker's “Solid Wing Face” design. Towards the back however, it gets unique rear doors, re-shaped quarter panel and integrated dual spoilers.
There is currently no word regarding the official engine line up, but it is likely it will be the same as the one found in the Thailand-spec sedans. These models are powered by either a 1.8-liter Earth Dreams i-VTEC engine or the 1.5-liter turbo i-VTEC engine, also with Earth Dreams technology.
At the moment, the Honda Civic Hatchback is not being considered for the Philippine market.
