Looking at the images, you can see the new Civic Hatch’s design is a bit tamer than the last one, bearing a resemblance to the current Honda Accord. Instead of the wild, C-shaped taillights, more conventional units have been selected that are more like those mounted to the Accord or Clarity. The thin taillight section joining the two larger lamps across the trunk lid—as seen on the Civic Coupe—has been retained, though it no longer intersects the car’s rear windshield.
At the front, the car gets a long hood and a decidedly less-aggressive front fascia than the previous generation. It seems that Honda’s designers wanted something a bit less angry this time around. Below, you can see images of the remarkably similar sedan, also posted to Civicxi.com.
