The Honda Civic Hatchback Returns to America This Fall

The Honda Civic Hatchback Returns to America This Fall

When we say Happy Monday, we really mean it this time, because we’re waking up to the news that the Honda Civic Hatchback is making its way back stateside. It’s a looker, too.

Honda confirms it will sell the all-new 2017 Civic Hatchback in the U.S. this fall. This is the first time a Civic hatchback’s been offered here since the seventh-generation SI a decade ago. (By the way, the Honda Civic SI is returning to the states soon as well.)

The new Civic Hatchback is built on the 10th-generation Civic platform recently rolled out by Honda. The five-door will come in five trim levels: LX, Sport, EX, EX-L and Sport Touring.

All hatchbacks come with a 1.5-liter turbo four-cylinder engine under the hood. It’s available with either a CVT or a six-speed manual. The manual is standard on the LX, Sport and EX.

The LX, EX and EX-L offer 172-horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque, while the Sport and Sport Touring bump the power up 180-hp with the same torque figure. The Sport models also feature a new exhaust system with tailpipes centered under the rear bumper.

The new Civic Hatchback will be the basis of the new high-performance Honda Type-R next year, and likely the new Si model, as well.  It’s being built in the UK.
