Pictures of concept Civic Revealed-civic2.jpg

The new Honda Civic is here revealed just today
– and yet again it’s set to break the mould in the family hatchback sector! These exclusive shots show how the next car will look when it hits the showroom in 2010, and as you can see, the Japanese maker has opted for a shape that is even bolder and more individual than the current model.The hatchback ‘coupé’ pictured here will be aimed at younger buyers, who want style and image more than outright practicality. So, as well as big alloys and a contrasting black bodykit, the three-door gets lowered suspension and a dark interior with deeply sculpted seats.The engine line-up will be shared between the two styles, though, and our sources have revealed that a 1.5-litre IMA hybrid engine with more than 150bhp and sub-CO2 120g/km emissions will appear.
Yours Truly
This is the UK version and the Indian one must have four doors.

This is supposed to be 2010 Civic coupe for Europe. Its still in design stage and is not a generic Civic that we all know.

I pity Toyota in India - after a lot of procrastination, they are now gearing up to launch Corolla Altis and they get this news? They need a lot of motivation now.

No doubt the new Civic would be good looking.

But look at the second pic (the current coupe). Thats the car this new design is going to replace not the 4 door one.

Looks good. But whether this will be launched in India? I do not think so.

Its still a long way. There would be a lot of more changes to this by the time its up for production.

Nowadays due to the SKD/CKD kits for these cars with low volumes, its more economical for the carmaker to instantly change the model in all countries where such kits are being supplied.It costs more to keep on supplying kits for the older models.Look at how many model changes the Accord has gone through since its launch here.The CRV is another example. Where there are manufacturing facilities (The Honda City is manufactured while the Civic is assembled) the car maker can delay the launch of any new model.
Hence the stage can be set for the new Civic to arrive soon.

The red one is a concept and is only due in 2010. The blue one is the current european civic and will not come to india. I don't see it posing any threat to the new corolla.

True. The Blue one was on European roads as early as Nov 2007. I saw a couple of them in Marseille.

Scary!

Just imagine a Civic with LOWERED suspension!

Nice. Should be good competition for the Mitsubishi Ralliart Hatch.

Very very nice. Reminds me of the Alfa Brera (to some extent). If this is indeed the "production" version (and not a "concept" design study), then good to see some adventurous moves in design.

really superb
yes- the shape is quite evocative of the alfa brera.
sort of thinly veiled "cousins" or "half brothers" as it were

I really doubt if this actually makes it to production. Having said that, the previous European Civic hatch looked pretty futuristic. This one looks a bit Peugeotish.
