The Honda Civic Hatchback Prototype arrives at this week's New York Auto Show with a look virtually identical to the one shown off earlier this month in Geneva. Essentially acting as a preview of the production model expected to launch later in the year, the car has styling notes similar to the Civic Sedan, featuring LED headlights, center-mounted dual exhaust system and tailgate-mounted spoilers. Honda has confirmed the model will be built on the same platform as the sedan, offered exclusively in the U.S. with a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine. It's expected to generate 174 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque.
