THE latest Honda Civic Hatchback will make its global motor show debut at the Paris Motor Show in late September and provide a significant boost for the company's plant at Swindon where it will be built for worldwide distribution.

It's the tenth edition of Honda's top-selling model and the company says it has undertaken the most comprehensive research and development programme in its history before putting the car into production.

Set to go on sale across Europe early next year, it will be showcased alongside the latest incarnation of the Turkish-built Civic saloon.

Honda is keeping full details quiet until the car is revealed and has so far only released a teaser picture of the car's rear end.

Philip Crossman, managing director at Honda UK, says: "⦠the introduction of the new Civic heralds a new era for the plant in Swindon, as it will become the global manufacturing hub for the British-built Civic hatchback, and we are in a fantastic position going forward."
