Honda to unveil new Civic Hatchback in Paris

Honda has teased its new Civic Hatchback ahead of a Paris Motor Show debut.

The Civic Hatchback will make its global motor show debut at Paris, showcasing the Civic's new exterior and interior design. The car is set to appear in showrooms across Europe from early 2017.

Honda describes the Civic as the brand’s biggest selling nameplate worldwide and as such the Japanese automaker says it has undertaken the most comprehensive research and development programme in its history for this tenth edition.

Honda’s stand will also feature the four door saloon model of Civic. The new design includes an improved exterior and interior design. While not on sale in the UK, the saloon will be available in mainland European markets from early 2017.

Philip Crossman, managing director at Honda UK, commented: "The unveil of the 10th generation Civic at this year's Paris Motor Show continues the journey we started last year with the complete overhaul of our entire range.  

"Couple that with the fact the introduction of the new Civic heralds a new era for the plant in Swindon, as it will become the global manufacturing hub for the British-built Civic hatchback, and we are in a fantastic position going forward."

The Jazz Spotlight Edition will also make its debut at the Paris Motor Show. An evolution of the Honda Jazz Keenlight concept revealed at Geneva earlier this year, the Spotlight Edition is based around a series of design features aimed to appeal to a more 'fashion conscious' customer. Enhanced elements include bronze front grille decoration, door mirror decoration, decals along the flank of the car, unique 15” alloy wheels, tailgate decoration, steering wheel and centre console treatment. However, there are currently no plans to bring the Jazz Spotlight Edition to the UK.

The Paris Motor Show runs from 1-15 October.
