Frankfurt Motor Show: 2012 All-New Honda Civic Hatchback

The 2012 all-new, ninth-generation Honda Civic Hatchback, available only across Europe, has been unveiled at the 2011 . Honda claims that it has persisted with an evolutionary design because of the popularity of the current Honda Civic Hatchback, and that Honda customers generally prefer the current futuristic design theme and dimensions. Despite the similar exterior design, the all-new Civic Hatchback is the most aerodynamic car in its class with a drag coefficient of 0.27.

Like the current Civic Hatchback, the all-new Honda Civic Hatchback will still be built at Honda's Swindon plant, utilising the same platform. To address the issue of a subpar ride quality, Honda claims to have conducted more than 32,000 km of testing, coming up with a stiffer rear torsion beam axle and a new fluid-filled bushing that enhance the ride-and-handling characteristics. The current range of 1.4-litre and 1.8-litre petrol engines as well as the 2.2-litre diesel unit will be revised and carried forward.

Thanks to the compact rear torsion beam axle and the centrally-mounted fuel tank, the all-new Honda Civic Hatchback's cabin is said to be as spacious as before, with a boot capacity of 470 litres—both of which are “class-leading” according to Honda, which added that the interior quality has improved significantly as well, in direct response to the needs of Honda customers.
