2017 Honda Civic Hatchback Compact Car Review
The 10th generation of Honda Civic would not be complete without the return of a third model – the 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback. Adding to the award-winning Honda Civic coupe and sedan models, the Honda Civic Hatchback is yet another attractive model that draws car shoppers into the fold. With aggressive looks and a unique style, the Civic Hatchback is a car that chooses you, and not the other way around.
New Design for 2017
The 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback has an obvious European influence while remaining wholly Honda. The hatchback design offers versatility that meshes perfectly with the compact car segment and the rest of the Honda lineup.
It’s a face you don’t want to see in your rearview mirror. The 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback looks like a killer with piercing LED daytime running lights that frame out the piano black grille. Low-set fog lights add to the dramatic look. The body lines are perfectly shaped with gentle arches over the wheels and sharp lines angling upward toward the hatch. When the 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback passes you, its striking rear design sticks with you until it fades in the distance. A new rear fascia integrates the LED taillights and ties in the rear spoiler across the rear window.
Once you slide into the driver’s seat, you won’t want to exit. Sporty fabric greets front and rear occupants, and leather-trimmed seating is available on upper trims. Enjoy heated front seats and even heated rear outboard seats on those upper trims, even offering two-tone leather interior designs.
The digital color instrument cluster is sharp, putting all the information you need directly in your line of sight. Steering wheel-mounted controls make it easy to navigate your display along with cruise control and audio system controls.
Honda LaneWatch, a power moonroof, 7-inch Display Audio touchscreen system, and Navigation are all options you’ll find on the upper trims of the 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback, providing even more comfort and convenience in a compact car.
The Thrills You Expect
With the 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback, there’s no doubt you’ll be grinning from ear to ear. It comes standard with one engine across the hatchback lineup – a turbocharged 1.5-liter inline-4. On the LX and EX trims, 174 horsepower are produced for an exciting acceleration. On Sport, EX-L and Sport Touring trims, a sport-tuned exhaust system adds a few extra ponies from the same engine, making 180 hp for a drive that’s even more exciting.
Choose between the in-touch 6-speed manual gearbox or Honda’s smooth-as-silt CVT transmission for the driving experience in El Monte that you desire.
Safe in Every Circumstance
Know where you stand on the road with the 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback, and you can do so with its technology options.

Honda Sensing technologies provide driver-assist features that you’ll be amazed you’ve done without, including Lane Keeping Assist System, Adaptive Cruise Control, Collision Mitigation Braking System, and Road Departure Mitigation System. Your Civic Hatchback will help you maintain control in unexpected situations.
