The next-generation Honda Civic is expected to make an appearance by 2016, and Americans may finally get a taste of a five-door hatchback model.

Of course nothing is definitive, and 2016 is quite a ways away, but given that other automakers are selling five-door hatchbacks in America with success – like the Hyundai Elantra – it wouldn’t be a surprise if Honda finally makes the move for America.

The current-generation Civic debuted last year and already Honda has been quick to refine the model. According to Erik Berman, president of Honda R&D Americas, there are “fairly substantial styling changes” coming for the current Civic this fall. Berkman also noted that the next-generation US-spec Civic sedan and coupe will be developed in North America.

    Would love to buy a Honda hybrid hatchback. Have an old Honda hatchback that allows me to carry large items, yet has the convenience of parking in small spaces. Hurry up Honda and give me the great styling of Honda. Give me somethings that will have Toyota Prius owners turning their heads!
