    The production 2017 Civic Hatchback styling has been revealed via these official patent images that we have obtained!

    While it's not as aggressive in styling as the Concept Concept revealed at the recent Geneva Autoshow, the overall styling remains consistent with the 10th generation Civic sedan and coupe. It has also lost its central mounted dual exhaust pipes from the concept car, which will remain hidden as on the sedan and coupe. We've posted some concept photos for comparison.

    The 2017 Civic Hatchback is expected to arrive in the second half of 2016. It will be powered by the Civic's 1.5L turbo 4 cylinder (no 2.0L expected). This 5 door hatchback body will also be what the next generation Civic Type R is based upon when it's introduced to the world (including the North American market).

    Compare to the Concept Hatchback:

    Woulda been nice to have kept the exhaust, but oh well. Maybe CTR. Not shocked that even in the rear, dimensions are 92% similar to the sedan.

    Interesting rear end. It doesn't look bad. Obviously not as aggressive as the prototype but not bad. I think I still prefer my sedan out of all three.

    I like that they left the roof spoiler and the tail light jutting out like a trunk spoiler. I think the double spoiler look gives the profile view a sporty look.

    If you throw some larger wheels onto the production image and black out the window trim, it's not that far off from the concept version. Just needs side skirts and front lip to virtually look the same as the concept.

    after seeing these renders i'm glad i went with the sedan. The no 2.0L option would have been a bummer had i waited for the hatch. It also resembles a crosstour even more than the sedan does.

    Interesting they kept the more radical rear bumper, but a bit too chunky looking for me, prefer the coupe and sedan rear bumpers more i think.

    Also interesting to note, looks like they're keeping the front grill black instead of chrome. A bit surprised the coupe didn't at least get black grill as an option, but a quick replacement would be super easy with this on the market since all the front end pieces should carry over exactly in terms of fitment. Still think they should make the black an optional accessory for the coupe and sedan.

    Minus the wheels, skirts, and exhausts, it's literally the same as the concept. Very good looking. Those pipes better make a return for the Si or Type R though...

    I dig it. Guarantee the 1.5t 6 speed gets released with the hatchback. Then the 2017 Coupes and Sedans will have a 1.5T manual option

    I like it, I told the general manager of the dealer I go to, we may have to have a conversation about swapping when the hatch back comes out lol
    The back kind of reminds me of a Crosstour with it's built in spoiler.

    Definitely looks good. i've said it before...but it reminds me of the WRX hatches of late. Pretty sweet shape, kind of wagon-ish? I just hope and pray they finally release the 1.5t manual with this so I can go and buy one

    I'm definitely happy I went with the Sedan. Looks the best to me in my opinion.
