Honda didn't have much to say about the car's styling but the model follows in the footsteps of the Civic Sedan and features a stylish front fascia with LED headlights. Designers also added muscular fenders, a center-mounted dual exhaust system, and two tailgate-mounted spoilers.
Honda is keeping details under wraps but the automaker confirmed the model will be built on the same platform as the sedan and be offered exclusively with a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine in the United States. Honda declined to reveal performance figures but the engine should produce 174 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque. That's not terribly powerful but the automaker confirmed plans to offer the turbocharged engine with either a six-speed manual or a continuously variable transmission.
In related news, Honda revealed both the Civic Si and Civic Type R will be added to the lineup sometime next year.
