Find out everything you want to know about the 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback, and you will be eager to get behind the wheel of one. The Civic hasn’t been available as a hatchback in several years, making it natural that Clifton drivers have plenty of questions. It should be available later this year. Until then, you will have to rely on official information to help you decide if the Civic Hatchback is right for you or if you will stick to a different Civic body style.
What does the Civic Hatchback look like?
Although the Civic is currently available as a coupe or sedan, it can be a challenge to visualize another completely different body style. The hatchback will be similar to the sedan, with its minimal trunk shelf and sloping roofline, but expect an extended roof line that gives an upright profile to the rear glass. The prototype has a central rear exhaust and other aggressive body details, but you shouldn’t necessarily expect these on the production model. The interior is still a mystery, as well, since Honda is keeping details under wraps.
What Makes It Go?
The Civic Hatchback will have the 1.5-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that is available on other Civic models. This engine generates 174 horsepower and can work with a 6-speed manual transmission or a CVT. This is exciting news for drivers who were waiting for a Civic with a turbocharged engine and manual transmission.
