Our spies have managed to catch several new images of the US-spec 2012 Honda Civic Coupe.

Undergoing hot weather testing in the American southwest, the coupe features a dramatic roofline (strikingly similar to the Chevrolet Cobalt coupe) and longer rear windows which may have a BMW-like Hofmeister kink. The front end is heavily camouflaged, but it seems to be an evolution of the angular design theme used on the current model. Out back, we can get a glimpse of a trunk-mounted spoiler and clear taillights.

Under the hood, we can expect a new four-cylinder petrol engine and possibly a double-clutch transmission.

The Civic Coupe will be unveiled next year, so stay tuned to WCF for continuing coverage.
