Why is it always like this.

The front end of the Euro Civic (sedan) looks 3x better than the US Civic with it's stubby front bumper and thin headlights.

It's like looking at a face with chubby cheeks and squinting eyes.
The Euro Civic (hatch) dashboard also looks 2x better too!
I like the rear pretty much the same between the two.

They should bring that hatch back here!
What are the infrastructure hurdles of bringing this model in anyway?
Honda already is making a bunch of them so we know it's not a ROI problem.
US vehicle qualifications? US safety certifications?
They can't be that bad.

Well, we probably won't get the coupé in Europe which I think is better looking, plus you have a Si version and we don't....
We probably will see a Civic Type R....but this one has to come out yet...

Indeed. Honda's marketing stategy has never been very good. A few examples: The new Honda Integra (based on the American RSX) is only available in the US and Japan. In Japan, the Civic Type-R can be ordered in the Championship white color, which isn't available in Europe. Furthermore, the Europe model features Honda-seats, while the Japan version has Recaro seats.

Funny most Europeans like the SI better then the hatchback.

You gotta remember that europe in general have quite small roads so hatchbacks are great.
Just came back from Florida and I never seen 1 Ford Focus hatchback because its not what the public wants.

Also, who wants a white car when its crappy wether in UK? (and most of europe)
I have enough trouble trying to keep my silver civic clean yet alone a white one.
