2021 Honda Civic Hatchback Revealed
The entirely new hatchback from Honda Civic is unveiled. The model will be sold abroad, first in Europe, possibly next year. A few months ago, the new Civic hatchback is based on the eleventh gene Civic.
In the styling of the 11th generation Civic, the Japanese company has evolved, while the new vehicle mostly takes a quick-back sloping roofline with a noticeable rear wing of the present model. The rear hatch is claimed to be lighter and has smaller hinges for a more smooth opening, while the A-pillars are around two” behind the existing car and the wheelbase is about 1.4-inch larger.
The new Honda Civic hatchback will be a hybrid-based offering with the same petrol-electric system, like the newly announced HR-V SUV and the newest genre of jazz.
In addition to the 1.5-liter Atkinson cycle petrol engine, the Honda E: HEV system combines with a couple of electric motors that produce 108hp Jazz and 129hp HR-V. With a single-speed gearbox, the hybrid model uses the petrol engine to produce electric engine power and reassign to the drive wheels at greater loads. The changes in the drive system on the Civic hatchback are not yet verified.
In Honda’s European portfolio, the Civic is the penultimate model to be hybridized, in accordance with its aim to electrify all mainstream passenger vehicles by the end of next year.
However, the heat-packaging Civic Type R, yet to be disclosed by the newest generation, retains a pure combustion set-up that is probably based on an advanced version, which produced 316hp – one of the world’s strongest front-end driving vehicles, the present car ‘K20C1’ 2.0-liter turbo-four.
The 2021 Honda Civic will be sold via its Northern American factory to most European countries as the firm will close its Swindon UK facility shortly.
The 2021 Honda Civic that was departing was marketed in India in a sedan configuration and saw the Indian market run a very short time, with the model just over a year later on. Civic has been a sluggish seller for Honda. Sales have been further affected by the COVID-19 epidemic, causing Honda, together with the closing of Honda’s Greater Noida factory, to plug the model for the second time in India.
