If the intent was to show the next generation of Honda design, as one insider put it, the European Civic five-door hatchback did a good job. Just like the coupe that was shown at Chicago a few weeks ago, the hatchback had an edginess that has been lacking from Honda styling in the past. Sure, there were lots of cute show car details and the obligatory oversize tires, but otherwise this gives a good indication of the way that the production car--which will be built in Swindon, England--will look. It is lower and wider than the current Civic, although there is no word on the final engine line-up, except that Honda's 2.2-liter i-CTDi diesel engine will be part of the range, making 138 hp and 251 lb-ft of torque.
