2017 Honda Civic Hatchback

The new Honda Civic Hatchback, which hits showrooms on Monday, September 26, has been priced from $20,535.

That compares with the $19,475 you have to pay for the Civic Sedan and the $19,885 for the Civic Coupe. (All figures include an $835 destination charge.)

What marks out the Civic Hatchback from the rest of the range, apart from its more practical body, is the standard turbocharged 1.5-liter inline-4. It comes in two states tune, though.

It delivers 174 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque in LX, EX and EX-L trim, and 180 hp and 162 lb-ft in Sport and Sport Touring trim. The latter is distinguished by a center-mounted exhaust.

The $20,535 starting price is for the Civic Hatchback LX equipped with a 6-speed manual transmission. Opt for the available CVT and you’ll need to pay an additional $800.

The CVT is the more economical option, with Honda quoting an EPA-estimated gas mileage of 31 mpg city, 40 highway and 34 combined.

Standard features include hill start assist, cruise control, 60/40 split-folding seats and a 7.0-inch touchscreen display. Total cargo space measures in 97.2 cubic feet.

Honda fans have a lot to look forward to in 2017. The automaker will add much sportier options to the range that year. These will be new Si and Type R models. They are expected to come with turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-4s based on a similar unit fitted to the outgoing Type R, which is rated at 305 hp. It’s thought that a concept previewing the new Type R will be shown on September 29 at the 2016 Paris auto show. To keep track of our coverage on the show, bookmark our dedicated hub.
