While we've been, um, enjoying the latest take on the Honda Civic for a few good months now, our cousins across the pond have yet to be able to sink their teeth into the new European version of the Japanese compact. That's all about to change as Honda prepares to unveil the 2012 Euro Civic at the upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show. The Japanese automaker has been so kind as to slide the web a little teaser ahead of the vehicle's debut complete with a photo of the hatchback's rear and a few scant details. The shot shows a new integrated spoiler and third brake light that Honda says helps manage the vehicle's aerodynamics at speed.

In addition, the company says that the hatch will boast class-leading interior room for its occupants and its cargo as well as "stand-out looks." We wait with baited breath. Look for the ninth-generation Euro Civic to take a bow in Germany on September 13. Hit the jump for a glance at the brief press release.

Honda has launched the first image of the 2012 European Civic, ahead of its world debut at the IAA Frankfurt Motor Show in September.

The new Civic features a rear combination light that works as an aerodynamic spoiler, managing air flow over the top and sides of the car.

The ninth generation Civic hatchback will also offer stand-out looks combined with class-leading space for passengers and luggage – and will continue to deliver peace of mind with low running costs, through Honda's famed and unparalleled reliability.

      Looks really promising and i can't wait to see. Too bad we in the US will probably never see it in person. Damn the lame decisions car manufactures make for us Americans. We seem to always get screwed over. "Send the lame ones to the US."

        I don't know what your definition of "truth" is but your comment is more accurately an opinion. You're entitled to believe what you want but anyone who closes their comment with "LMAO" can hardly be taken seriously. Japanese automakers (especially Honda) have been making solidly reliable cars for generations. They don't always make the best looking or best performing cars on the road but they're easily some of the longest lasting and easy/cheap cars to maintain.
