Honda is reportedly gearing up to launch a new Civic-based crossover in Europe.

Set to go on sale sometime next year, the model will be heavily influenced by the Euro-spec Civic and slot beneath the CR-V.

Engine options will likely carryover from the hatchback, so expect a 1.4-liter i-VTEC with 100 PS (73 kW / 98 hp), a 1.8-liter i-VTEC with 142 PS (104 kW / 139 hp) and a 2.2-liter i-DTEC diesel that produces 150 PS (110 kW / 148 hp) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque.
