The European 2015 Honda Civic, Civic Tourer and all-new Civic Sport are set to have their debuts early next month at the 2014 Paris Motor Show. But Honda is promoting its upcoming Civics in advance of the Mondial de l’Automobile with these new photos that showcase all three models, with extra attention paid to the line-up’s newest addition, the Civic Sport.
The Sport model is based on the Civic hatchback, but borrows a sportier bumper and lower grille mesh from the upcoming Honda Type R. It also features a unique color-coded rear spoiler and 17-inch alloy wheels. The Sport is powered by either a 1.6-liter i-DTEC diesel (118 horsepower) or 1.8-liter I-VTEC (140 horsepower) gasoline engine.
