The tenth generation Civic Hatchback was previewed by its concept that was presented earlier this year during the Geneva Auto Show. As expected, its  visuals draw heavily from the concept, and in spite of being toned down for production, the new Civic Hatchback looks particularly delectable. The swooping rear window, the prominent spoiler, the center-exit exhausts, and the sharp, C-shaped LED tail lamps make it quite the poser from the back.
