2017 Honda Civic Hatchback To Debut In Geneva Motor Show

Honda is expected to tease with previews of its 10th generation Civic hatchback during the 2016 Geneva Motor Show next month. Those curious to see what the hatchback would look like should seek no further since we got some photos when Honda tested it on the road.

Although it was covered in camouflage, there was no padding so the design cues were reflected. It basically retains 80 percent of the DNA from the 10th generation Honda Civic sedan, so you know what to expect from the fenders down to the rear doors.

The hatchback will be launched in the first quarter of 2017 in Europe, but since this is a “global car,” expect it to arrive soon enough in the United States and other parts of the world.

By looking at the Civic sedan, you’ll immediately have an idea of how the hatchback would look in front. It would have the same radiator grille, huge chrome louver, the Honda “H” in the middle, the updated headlights, fog lights, and less dramatic corner vents. As for the hood, it looks like the hatchback would have the same one as the Civic coupe and sedan.

If you’re a fan of the mild body line from the front wheels to the rear taillights, then you would love that too about the hatchback. The difference between the sedan and the hatchback can be seen after the rear doors since the hatchback sports a dual exhaust outlet near the fascia in the middle.

Inside, it would probably be similar to the sedan and the coupe. There would be a light-colored floating center console, touchscreen display, and digital instrument cluster. The front and the rear seats would mostly be the same, but the rear deck would be gone for more cargo space.

No prices have been announced for the hatchback, although the current one sells for $20,067in the UK. Pricing may increase a bit because of the new design and extra length.

Below are some spy shots of the upcoming Honda Civic hatchback, which were provided by AutoBlog:

Mercedes-Benz C-Class Cabriolet Coming Soon at the Geneva Motor Show

Next month’s 2016 Geneva Motor Show will showcase the convertible model of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class after it was lauded for its dynamics, styling and performance. So, it’s really not a surprise that execs are looking to add a larger range of models for this style.

Reports said the plan is an “open secret,” anyway, and customers will likely see the new convertible in showrooms later this year.

Mercedes said the C-Class Cabriolet will be a four-seater, although the rear seat will likely be tight. It will feature a soft fabric top like the Audi A5 Cabriolet. And unlike the BMW 4 series, it won’t make use of an elaborate retractable hardtop.

Aside from that, don’t expect major reinforcements. The Mercedes-Benz C-Class Cabriolet will resemble its coupe counterpart. So far, the prototypes we have seen are impressive, but the major surprise would be the use of fabric top and nothing else.

There is not much information about the full list of engines, although the detail so far is that the C300 Cabriolet will have a 241-hp 2.0-liter four, and the Mercedes-AMG C63 S Cabriolet with a 503-hp 4.0-liter V-8.

The standard would be automatic transmissions. Other markets can likely have a more generous choice of powertrains such as diesels and manual transmission.

But in the United States, the car would come with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder in base C300 trim. Above this should sit a Mercedes-AMG C43 powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 and at the top of the range should be the Mercedes-AMG C63 with a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8.

The cabriolet’s price would be below of its bigger brother. It would definitely make it hard for the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Cabriolet, whose new version won’t appear until mid 2017, to compete.

Rivals for this would be the Audi A5 Cabrio, BMW 4-Series Convertible, Infiniti Q60 Convertible and the expected Cadillac ATS.
