The 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback arrives with Euro-inspired styling in a five-passenger hatchback with world-class driving dynamics and an exhilarating direct-injection turbocharged engine.
Entering its 10th generation as one of the most iconic nameplates in America, the 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback (MSRP $19,700*) joins the Sedan and Coupe as a third option for buyers who want Honda reliability, performance and value.
Bringing together sportiness, head-turning style, interior space and premium features, the all-new Civic Hatchback can be outfitted in five trim levels: LX, Sport, EX, EX-L Navi and the line-topping Sport Touring model. Every Civic Hatchback is powered by a capable 1.5-liter DOHC turbocharged four-cylinder engine with direct injection producing an impressive peak output of 174 hp and 167 lb/ft of torque, with Sport and Sport Touring trims boosting performance to 180 hp and 177 lb/ft of torque thanks to a dual-outlet center-mounted exhaust system.
The turbocharged engine sends power to the front wheels through either a sport-tuned CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) or a quick-shifting six-speed manual transmission, boasting class-leading fuel economy of 40 mpg highway and 34 mpg combined city/highway**. Thanks to a lightened chassis with four-wheel independent suspension and sport-tuned electronic power steering, the Civic Hatchback is exceptionally nimble and quick for exhilarating performance on winding roads.
From the outside, the 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback is sharp and bold; a head-turning design that cannot be overlooked. With prominent wheel arches, defined body lines and available LED lighting, the Civic Hatchback looks as quick and agile as it handles.
Matching its bold exterior appearance, the 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback interior features high-grade materials throughout as well as class-leading interior volume and cargo capacity. High grade fabric upholstery is found on most Civic Hatchback models, with EX-L and Sport Touring models featuring leather upholstery. Sport Touring models feature added performance enhancements like textured aluminum sport pedals, red-accented instrument illumination and the most powerful audio system ever offered in a Civic, producing 540 watts through 12 speakers.
All Civic Hatchback models feature well-bolstered, supportive seating comfortable for long drives as well as spirited backroad outings. Thanks to its versatile five-door design, the Civic Hatchback boasts best-in-class rear seat legroom at 36 inches and the largest available cargo carrying capacity at 25.7 cubic feet with rear seats in use. With rear seats folded flat, the Civic Hatchback expands to almost 50 cubic feet of room.
