The Geneva Motor Show leaks continue as the Honda Civic Hatchback concept has made its way to the web. Designed to preview the upcoming production model, the Civic Hatchback concept follows in the footsteps of the Civic sedan but adopts a new front bumper with larger air intakes and mesh grille inserts. The rear end also echoes the sedan but it eschews a trunk for a more practical liftgate. The concept also has a new rear bumper, a center-mounted dual exhaust system, and two rear spoilers.

The Geneva Motor Show leaks continue as the Honda Civic Hatchback concept has made its way to the web.

Designed to preview the upcoming production model, the Civic Hatchback concept follows in the footsteps of the Civic sedan but adopts a new front bumper with larger air intakes and mesh grille inserts.  The rear end also echoes the sedan but it eschews a trunk for a more practical liftgate.  The concept also has a new rear bumper, a center-mounted dual exhaust system, and two rear spoilers.

There's no word on specifications but the production model is expected to be offered with a variety of different engines including a turbocharged 1.0-liter three-cylinder that develops approximately 127 horsepower and 148 pound-feet of torque.  We can also expect a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 158 hp and 138 lb-ft of torque as well as a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder that produces 174 hp and 162 lb-ft of torque.

The production model will be built at the company's Swindon plant in the United Kingdom and it will go on sale in Europe early next year.  The model will eventually be sold in the United States alongside the Civic sedan and coupe.
