The next-generation Honda Civic concept is believed to have been revealed in these low-res pictures, which have leaked out on the eve of next week's Geneva motor show.

The pictures were revealed by, and show a car with familiar Honda Civic styling cues but with much more aggressive body styling. As the Geneva show car is likely to be a concept, it is likely that the more exaggerated features will be toned down for production.

Update: The tenth generation Honda Civic takes it bow at the 2016 Geneva Motorshow

The all-new Civic is expected to go on sale in 2017, and draw styling inspiration from the Honda Civic Coupe concept that was shown at last year's New York motor show.

The new Civic will sit on an all-new platform developed by Honda. Spy pictures of it testing have already revealed some details, including an all-new dashboard design and high-tech features including heated rear seats and blind-spot protection cameras, suggesting top-end models will feature cutting edge kit.

In time, the Civic family will extend to include a five-door hatch, five-door estate, four-door saloon and the next-generation Honda Civic Type R.

Engines are expected to include new-generation 1.0-litre turbo and 1.5-litre petrol engines, while a new hybrid system is also expected to be launched with the car.

Car review

The Honda Civic is an impressive achievement and a worthy rival to the Volkswagen Golf and Ford Focus, but it isn't quite up to class-leading standards

Agree with StuM82, very fussy

Agree with StuM82, very fussy. Presumably this is not the shopping trolley version as it's trying so hard to morph into an NSX.

Not a fan

The front is still too fussy for me and the middle, in profile view, looks like it belongs to a different car.

I agree ...

I agree with some posters here that the car is one of the better looking offerings from Honda of late but this term "Scoop" is beginning to be a bit overused and abused by the manufacturers of late, I have no doubt this was a planted release in order to drum up interest, it will soon become taboo... They also said it is a concept?Lol, look in the States for the exact car but with a normal boot.
