The 2017 Model Civic hatchback would come with a new external look, ditching the divisive design of the existing version for something more stylish and sleeker. The new Civic Concept was a double-door coupé, and while the sedan previewed was for markets, such as the United States, it provided strong indications of the way the Europe-based Mk10 five-door will appear.

The sports seats inside the cabin are upholstered with high-quality red Alcantara and leather and it comes with a multifunctional, leather-covered steering wheel.
