The design sketch shows a sleek and aerodynamic profile strongly resembling the Honda CR-Z. Although this sketch is showing what appears to be a three-door hatchback, prototypes of the Civic sedan version have been previously spied.
There are no details regarding the engine options, but previous reports have indicated that the Civic may receive a new petrol and diesel power plants. A dual-clutch transmission is also a possibility and I hope it turn out to be a reality as DSG is the “in” technology now.
The production version of the ninth generation Civic will go on sale in spring 2011.
