The swooping lines of this Civic Wagon concept vehicle (pictured above) strongly hint at what the long-awaited Civic estate may look like.
Due to be officially unveiled at the Geneva motor show in March, the Wagon concept teases with its bulbous wheel arches and sporty boot lip spoiler.
We all know that finished products rarely look anything like they're tantalising concept counterparts, but the LED taillights teased in the image strongly suggest a bold new styling direction. As do the twin tailpipes and rear diffuser.
It is unlikely the enormous alloy wheels will remain quite so arch-filling but the general blade design is closely linked to the 18 inch Krypton alloy wheel Honda currently offers on all Civic models.
Previous Civic estates have been badged Aerodeck but the Japanese firm is keeping its cards close to its chest when it comes to naming the swanky new offering.
All we know is that it's likely to hit UK roads in early 2014 and many suggest it will be built at Honda's Swindon plant.
It's also likely to be powered by the same range of engines as the Civic hatchback, including the newly introduced 1.6-litre diesel engine that is also built at the Swindon plant. A higher power 2.2-litre diesel, and 1.4 and 1.8-litre petrols will also be offered.
