Euro-spec 2012 Honda Civic test mule spy shotsGallery

Overseas, the Honda Civic is a rakish hatchback available in three- and five-door bodystyles, as well as a high-performance Type R variant with more than 180 horsepower on tap. The vehicle seen in these latest spy shots depict this ‘global’ Civic, although it’s highly modified state suggests it is in fact a test-mule for the next-generation model due in early 2012.

The test-mule is wearing the new model’s bumpers and features an elevated hood, either to fit a new engine or test equipment. The wheelbase looks to be the same, although we can clearly see that the rear fenders are slightly wider than on the current car.

Not much else is known about the car but there are rumors that a new three-cylinder engine option will join the four-cylinder range. There’s also word that the hybrid system from the recently revealed CR-Z Hybrid will make it into the new Honda Civic.

As for the local version of the Civic, not much is known but an all-new model is expected to debut around the 2012 mark as well.
