Honda Re-Envisions Civic with Small Hybrid Sports Concept

There’s no denying the resemblance that the Honda Small Hybrid Sports Concept has to the current generation Civic Coupe. Sure, it’s got more aerodynamic lines and an overall sexier look, but the basic profile is still there. That’s not to say it’s a bad thing: I like space-age curves. I also like the tinted glass roof. What I don’t enjoy, however, is the styling of the front end. Something about it rubs me the wrong way.

But that’s not where Honda wants us to focus our attention today. Nope, clearly the more important issue at hand is that this car, unveiled in Geneva, is a hybrid and not just any hybrid. It’s a “compact sports car that features the Japanese automaker’s latest hybrid technology.” The front-wheel-drive concept is powered by a Honda IMA 4-cylinder gas-electric system, mated with a Continuously Variable Transmission.

They’ve equipped the Small Hybrid Sports Concept with 20-inch rims and 165/50 tires (shouldn’t they be wider?), but I’d imagine that if this concept ever makes it to production, it won’t be “rolling on dubs”, at least not from the factory.
