About the Honda Civic Hatchback

Combining European-influenced style, advanced technology, and inspiring performance abilities — the Honda Civic Hatchback is the ultimate way to experience both practicality and athleticism on your daily commute. As a more youthful alternative to the award-winning Civic Sedan, the Civic Hatchback stands out from the crowd with its distinctive swept-back styling that culminates in its unique rear liftgate. Once you step inside the cabin, you’ll find a variety of cutting-edge connectivity and multimedia functions to help you stay in touch no matter how far the journey takes you. Great for those living adventurous lifestyles, the Civic Hatchback benefits from a large rear cargo opening along with 60/40 split folding rear seating. Drivers can select from two potent engine choices along with two distinct transmission options, making it easy to find the exact amount of performance and efficiency to match your driving preferences. Also standard across all trim levels of the Civic Hatchback, Honda Sensing® is a suite of cutting-edge driver-assist technologies created specifically to keep you alert and informed.

What the Critics Say

This little Honda hatch has a good amount of performance. The sporty handling lets more spirited drivers actually have some fun rather than feeling soft or disconnected. Usually, these abilities are reserved for the more performance-focused models like the Civic Si and Type R, which tells you how good this car is.” — Edmunds

Comfort and versatility may be strong suits, but interior quality is one of this Honda’s greatest achievements. The low, horizontal dashboard looks timeless and is made of premium soft plastic that puts what you get in some Audis to shame. The climate-control knobs click like the crown of a fancy watch and feel just as expensive, while the joystick-inspired air-vent controls move with scientific precision.” — CNET
