These are the first spy shots of the 2012 Honda Civic. This vehicle, with its five-door hatch shape and funky rear door handles, is the European version that has never made its way to US soil. The 2012 Honda Civic is rumored to be the first Civic in generations to shrink in size. For the Japanese market, Edmunds Green Car Advisor has reported that the 2012 Civic will be sold only as a hybrid.
Expect the 2012 to arrive late in 2011.
