Global-spec version will be built at Honda’s Swindon Plant.

The tenth generation Honda Civic was first introduced as a sedan and saw the addition of a coupe version last year. Towards the end of the 2016, the tenth generation range will welcome the 5-door hatchback version, as per a report from Autocar.

The 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback will likely be available with the all-new 1.0-litre VTEC TURBO three-cylinder petrol engine and 1.5-litre VTEC TURBO four-cylinder petrol engine, as well as the current 1.6-litre i-DTEC turbocharged four-cylinder diesel engine. These would be mated to 6-speed manual or continuously variable transmission, with power being sent only to the front wheels.

According to the report, the 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine will produce 127 bhp and 148 lb.-ft. of torque and replace the current 1.8-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine. Citing sources in Japan, the report says that the company’s smallest turbocharged engine to be offered in the Civic Hatchback will have a CO2 rating of 99 g/km.
