Honda fans, it’s time to get excited again, because the Civic Hatch has debuted at the Geneva Motor Show, and it looks so good.

But don’t get too excited just yet. Honda says this Civic Hatch is just a prototype, but we really hope the production model stays true to this concept because it looks legitimately sporty. With a low, long and wide stance, the proportions are just right and from all the Civics unveiled so far, this is the most aggressive looking one yet. Just look at the short overhangs, huge air intakes and center mounted exhaust. They are just a few of the many little details that Honda uses to give the hatch a sportier look. The Japanese automaker promises 'rewarding driving dynamics and versatile practicality.'

When the car debuts, you can expect the same engines offered on the rest of lineup: a base 2.0-liter four cylinder with 158 hp and 138 lb-ft of torque, and an upgraded 1.5-liter turbo four-cylinder with 174 hp and 162 lb-ft of torque. A six-speed manual or CVT will be available with both engines, and the hatch will also get an Si version and be the basis for the future Type R.

The 10th-generation Civic Coupe will be built in the U.K. and will hit dealer showrooms in Europe in early 2017.

Honda has promised that the hatch will be sold in North America this time around, something Honda fans have been asking for. It has been at least 10 years since a Civic hatch was sold here, so this has been a long time coming. And if the production version looks like this concept, then maybe it was worth the wait.

just have to see how it really looks when it comes out, but a hot Honda Hatch is always welcome :D just make the rear look better than the current 10th gen coupe design and clean up that weird grille up front and the evil chromeeeee!

lol.... I love the video. "Suck it, Europe".

Car looks great, but if some of the details don't end up in production models, it may be a little boring. Ie painted calipers, exhaust accents, body kit, and lowered/aggressive suspension.

It looks so aggressive. Man if I had the money I'd get the Type-R version of this in a heartbeat...

Prototypes usually look good, need to see the real thing before I pass judgement. Si model hatchback would be awesome if it looks good. Those C shaped taillights look okay on a hatch but ugly on the sedan tail.
