Sep 23, 2016 - TORRANCE, Calif.
  • New model continues rollout of the 10th-generation Civic lineup and introduces new Sport and Sport Touring trims
  • Hatchback provides appealing combination of sporty styling, efficiency, versatility and premium content
  • All trims powered by 1.5-liter DOHC direct-injected turbo engine
Arriving in showrooms starting next Monday, the striking 2017 Civic Hatchback joins the 2016 Civic Sedan and Coupe as the third body style in the 10th-generation Civic lineup. Combining Euro-inspired styling and 5-door hatchback versatility with world-class driving dynamics and Honda direct-injected turbo engine technology, the Civic Hatchback is designed for buyers seeking an even more expressive, sporty and versatile Civic. The 2017 Civic Hatchback will begin to arrive at dealers Monday with a starting manufacturer's suggested retail price of $19,7001 for the LX with 6-speed manual transmission.

Built on the same world-class platform as the Civic Sedan and Coupe, the 2017 Civic Hatchback offers an appealing combination of sporty styling, efficiency, interior utility and premium features. The Civic Hatchback is available in five trims: LX, Sport, EX, EX-L Navi and a new line-topping Sport Touring4 version. All models are equipped with a 1.5-liter DOHC direct-injected and turbocharged in-line 4-cylinder engine with peak outputs of 174 horsepower2 in LX, EX and EX-L Navi trims, and 180 horsepower2 in the Sport and Sport Touring trims which feature a dual-outlet center-mounted exhaust and are designed to benefit from premium unleaded fuel.

Powertrain
The Civic Hatchback's turbocharged engine can be mated to either a sporty CVT (all trims) or a quick-shifting 6-speed manual transmission (LX and Sport trims) and boasts class-leading EPA fuel economy ratings of 31/40/34 mpg2 (city/highway/combined; LX, EX & EX-L Navi w/ CVT).

Working in concert with the Honda turbocharged powertrain is the Civic's more rigid and lightweight body and sophisticated chassis design, featuring a fully independent suspension system with liquid-filled bushings, sport-tuned electronic power steering (EPS) with variable gear ratio, and powerful 4-channel anti-lock disc brakes with Electronic Brake Distribution and Hill Start Assist. These systems synergize to endow the Civic Hatchback with nimble, sophisticated handling and a firm yet comfortable ride.

Pricing and Fuel Economy


Interior
The interior of the 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback carries through on the modern, sophisticated and premium quality of the 10th-generation Civic lineup, with high-grade materials and finishes applied liberally throughout. In terms of packaging, the 2017 Civic Hatchback delivers class-leading volume and cargo capacity, including a roomy interior (97.2 cu. ft.), best-in-class rear seat legroom (36.0 inches) and the largest available cargo carrying capacity in the competitive set (25.7 cu. ft. with rear seats up; LX, EX, EX-L Navi).

Key available features include Honda Display Audio with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ (standard on EX and above trims), heated seats, power driver and front-passenger seats, remote engine start and more.

The Civic Hatchback's all-new Sport Touring4 grade features textured aluminum sport pedals, red-accented instrument illumination and a 540-Watt 12-speaker premium audio system, the most powerful ever offered in a Civic.

Interior Comfort & Convenience Features




Safety and Driver Assistance Technologies
Available on LX, EX and EX-L Navi trims and standard on Sport Touring4 trim is the Honda Sensing™4 suite of safety and driver-assistive technologies, which includes Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™), Forward Collision Warning (FCW) integrated with CMBS, Lane Keeping Assist (LKAS), Road Departure Mitigation (RDM), Lane Departure Warning integrated with RDM, Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow and Auto High-Beam Headlights (HSS) – a Civic first.

The Civic Hatchback has earned a 5-star Overall Vehicle Score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and is anticipated to earn a TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), when equipped with Honda Sensing.

Manufacturing
The 2017 Civic Hatchback was developed jointly by Honda R&D teams in Europe and Japan and is manufactured for the U.S. market exclusively by Honda of the UK Manufacturing in its Swindon, UK plant.
