Honda Civic Hatchback vs. Honda Civic Sedan
This year, Honda announced the first Civic Hatchback in 13 years. The 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback was released just following the initial release of the 2017 Honda Civic Sedan. While the Civic Sedan has continued to evolve to become quite a staple in the automotive world, the Civic Hatchback has opened up a new door of opportunity for Honda Civic loyals. Here, we take a look at the numerous offerings both styles bring to the table.
2017 Honda Civic Sedan
The 2017 Civic Sedan combines spacious, luxurious design options with considerable technological capabilities. The available Honda Sensing safety package allows for sound peace of mind, providing lane assist and adaptive cruise control to allow for a smooth and reliable ride. Other features offered by the Civic Sedan include a rearview camera option, and even a wireless charging option as well. Manual transmission is also available, with the base 2.0 liter engine.
2017 Honda Civic Hatchback
The 2017 Civic Hatchback resurrects the two foremost luxuries of past hatchbacks: exceptional space and versatility, and a whole lot of added fun. The model offers a total of 122 cubic feet of cabin space for cargo and passengers (more than 13 cubic feet than that of the sedan). A 1.5 liter turbocharged engine with 6-speed manual transmission is the standard option for the Civic Hatchback; and the same CVT that’s standard in the sedan is also available.
The 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback also comes in two unique trims: the Sport and Sport Touring trims allow for increased horsepower (climbing up to 180), and are equipped with new exhaust systems as well. Additionally, those same lovable safety and technology features offered by the Civic Sedan are also available for the Civic Hatchback, including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability.
