When Honda officially debuted the new 2012 Civic lineup at this year’s New York Auto Show, the Japanese automaker may have held back a little. Sure there was the Civic Coupe and Sedan, the Si, Hybrid and even a high fuel efficiency HF model, but now it appears as though the big H is preparing a 5-door hatchback version of its best-selling car.
Recent spy photos show a Honda Civic five-door is out testing, sporting a decent amount of camouflage. The bigger question now isn’t whether Honda will build the car, but if it will be offered for sale in North America.
Could the success of the 5-door Ford Focus hatch help bring a similar model here from Honda. Would it sell?
