It looks like a different bumper cover on the top portion, but you never know until the part diagram is out.

The top portion could be a part of the front bumper cover just like the 10th gen, then it'd be a different bumper cover for very subtle changes.
If Honda learnt the lesson from the 10th gen, hopefully the top portion is a separate piece that attached to the grill before mounted on the bumper cover.

Looking at the pictures it should be removable, the problem is more on the location of the holes as well as the size fitting.
Like what u said I guess we only know till the part diagram is out.
Hopefully we’ll have the answers when my car delivers this October.

So, if you're in the U.S. the sport hatch w/manual is going to be:
1. A slower non-turbo
2. Less cargo room than 10th gen
3. Smaller 7 inch infotainment compared to sport touring's 9 inch infotainment
4. Smaller version instrument cluster than the sport touring's 10 inch instrument cluster

The sport hatch doesn't seem the hatch to buy that's for sure.

That grill is certainly removable, but you can see that the hatchback grill area is a lot larger than the sedan and it doesn't look like it's overlapping the bumper cover. That leads me to believe that the top portion of the bumper cover on hatchback is different from the sedan since its opening to accept the grill is significantly larger now. Honda could make the top portion of the bumper cover a separate piece like what Mazda is doing to keep the same lower bumper cover.

We can only know that when the part diagram is out.

Prefer the hatch design over the sedan. But I’m irked that they don’t have blind spot monitoring across the line up. I know I’m in the minority but I like my lane watch.
You aren't the only one worried about that. I know VW offers BSM on all versions of the Golf. Honestly, I'd be willing to pay $500 for a 3rd party version on my 10th gen. I experienced it once and I rate it as a must-have in 2021.

The feature will trickle down during mid-cycle refresh as well as fog lights and heated side mirrors. It’s the Honda way.

Si hatch will fill that demand.

I wish they hadn't of got rid of the magic seats from the mk8 and 9 it helps a heck of a.lot...
I also bet they haven't done anything about the passenger seat being so low by putting a height adjustable seat.

In Italy we are desperated about expected lack of thermic engines! Help us! Civic will be sold only with e-HEV of Vezel/HR-V. : - (

I love manual transission, specially Honda and Mazda too.

I can confirm the top painted portion is separate from the bottom. And the black grill area is what holds them together.

Everything I've read says the SI will only come as a sedan, the Type-R will be the sporty hatch.

Which is extremely disappointing. Manual, sporty hatch options are pretty small in the ~$30,000 price range. I might take a look at the GTI, despite the fact I much prefer this new civic hatch design over any of the Golfs.

The hatch looks very nice. Definitely on my short list.

Couple of comments - It seems crazy that there is no lumbar support. My 9 year old mid trim Accord EX has that. How can they go heated seats front and back and power passenger (none of which my Accord has) and not include lumbar? Seems absurd. This is basically the car I have been wanting Honda to build for over a decade, how can they miss something so basic that adds to comfort.

I do like the versatility of the hatch and the amount of space, but there is something super nice about a completely flat load floor. Even the BRZ (one of my other considerations) has this. I know it takes away some cargo space, but it is a much cleaner look, and long items aren't teetering around on the hump.
