Pics of the European Honda Civic
three-door hatch have been snapped well ahead of the car's official debut at the British Motor Show in July. As AutoExpress
points out, the removal of the two small rear doors gives the three-door hatch a much simpler shape than its big bro

Three engines will be available for the Civic three-door at launch, which include an 83-bhp 1.4L and 140-bhp 1.8L VTEC, both of which are petrol-powered. The obligatory diesel
unit is Honda's
140-bhp 2.2L i-CTDi turbodiesel. All three engines will come standard with a 6-speed manual for a mate.
