2017 Honda Civic hatchback – Beyond that the 2017 Honda Civic hatchback will be, fairly certainly, a hatchback, its name is particularly fitting. Honda last offered a hatchback version of the compact Civic in the U.S. in 2003, when the sporty Civic Si variant was available exclusively as a two-door edge albeit one that was imported from Europe and had little in common with contemporary U.S.-market Civic sedans and coupes. For the last non-Si Civic hatchback sold stateside, you’ll need to stretch your memory back to 2000, the final year for the sixth-generation Civic. Before then, every previous generation of the Civic had offered a hatchback body style. Now, the hatch will be back.
2017 Honda Civic hatchback Review
This new body style joins the somewhat-hatch-looking sedan and the coupe Honda has been selling for about a year. It is going to be available in LX, Sport, EX, ex l, and Sport Touring trims, with that last one being a fresh accession. All will get Honda’s 1.5-liter turbo four offered in upper trimmings of the sedan and coupe, but they won’t all get the same number of power: LX, EX, and EX-L models will use a 174-hp version, while anything that says Sport on the back gets bumped up to an 180-hp melody, thanks in part to the sweet center-exit exhaust you see on the car above. Torque doesn’t differ between the trims it’s 162 lb-ft on all of them.
2017 Honda Civic Hatchback Redesign
In regards to styling, the new Civic hatchback looks really close to its coupe equivalent, but there are a number of minor differences if you look carefully.
2017 Honda Civic Hatchback Exterior
In front, there’s the new, awesome-yet-futuristic fascia, which is chopped up with a mishmash of angles and cuts that bring the nose a unique appearance. Along the flanks, there are two prominent character creases that increase the autos visual rake, while the roofline drops gently into a tail that squared-off with C-shaped taillights. The rear is as equally busy as the front, with loads of little folds and creases throughout. Overall it’s a somewhat divisive appearance, which I can value I’d rather have something that’s unique than something that vapid.
the back seats will likely be the same as the sedan, but the rear deck will be gone. The seats will most likely fold down in a ratio that optimizes efficiency and space.
As for specifics, Honda says there are 122.9 cubic feet of interior space total, with rear legroom offering up an impressive 36 inches. Combined with the hatchback design, space shouldn’t be an issue in this compact, whether your hauling folks, things or both.

On the infotainment front, there’s Honda Display Audio with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto offered on the EX trim level and above. In addition, there are available front power seats, and heating functions for both the front and rear seats.
Based on the 10th-generation Civic which has been out in four-door sedan form since last fall, and as a two-door coupe since this, springthe new Civic hatchback will land on U.S. earth with a four-door body and a sportier set. (We mean land literally, too: The Civic hatch will be built in Swindon, U.K., and exported to the United States.) It won’t quite be a Si, and neither will it be a flame-spitting Type R; both versions are under development with more power, tauter management, and other performance enhancements. But where other Civics come with a 158-hp naturally aspirated 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, the hatchback will have as normal those versions discretionary 174-hp 1.5-liter turbocharged four. Better still, the hatchback seems to debut the enthusiast-friendly six-speed-manual/turbo-four powertrain blend that Honda sworn would proliferate throughout the 2017 Civic line.
The tenth-generation Civic hatchback will be hitting U.S. dealers this fall and will contain five trim levels the LX, Sport, EX, ex l, and Sports Touring.
Pick for the Sports Touring trim level, and you’ll get the Honda Sensing tech suite, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, LED headlights, and heated rear seats, all as standard features.
2017 Honda Civic Hatchback Price
Pricing has yet to be declared, but contemplating the current Civic hatchback goes for 14,470 pounds in the U.K. ($18,634 at present exchange rates, 08/15/2016), we suppose the starting MSRP on these shores won’t exceed $20,000 to $22,000 when the auto is eventually launched.
Needless to say, I also have to mention that, if you have the patience, the Type R is anticipated sometime in 2017. Just saying.
