Several official patent images from Honda’s patent filing have leaked.
They give a full picture of how the next-generation Honda Civic Hatchback will look like in its production form.
The 2022 Honda Civic will debut in spring 2021 and go on sale in the same year. It will be the eleventh generation of the popular model.
CivicXI.com uncovered the new Civic’s evolutionary exterior design represented in the patent images.
Up until now, only camouflaged prototypes of the next-gen Civic sedan and Civic Type R were spied during their road tests.
Compared to the current Civic, the 2022 model looks longer and lower, and has a less wedge-shaped design. More traditional taillights replace the boomerang-style ones of the outgoing car.
