Honda Versatilist is a Civic turned into a cross-hatch with rugged appearance. The concept car has been teased ahead of the Tokyo Auto Salon 2019. The teaser image shows the Civic hatchback version that has been given some cosmetic tweaks to make it look muscular and gets some crossover styling cues.
The changes over the regular Honda Civic hatchback are raised ride height (ground clearance), white body cladding across the car including front bumper, side profile and rear bumper, flared wheel arches, flush door handles, etc. The Japanese carmaker hasn't revealed any mechanical details yet.
If the Honda Versatilist concept gets into production, we believe it will be powered by the same engine options as the standard hatchback. However, it is not expected to come to the Indian market as Honda is currently preparing to launch the Civic sedan in India with both 1.8-litre petrol and 1.6-litre diesel engine options.
