Impressive power is yours to command when you’re at the helm of the Honda Civic Hatchback.
Each Civic Hatchback model features a 1.5L turbocharged In-Line 4-cylinder engine that generates between 174 and 180 hp and between 162 and 177 lb-ft of torque.
This engine comes paired with either a 6-speed automatic transmission or an available continuously variable transmission, and its delivery is bolstered by direct fuel injection and a drive-by-wire throttle system.
Whether you’re traveling on the highway or driving around town, the Honda Civic Hatchback’s fuel economy delivery is truly impressive. Your wallet will certainly thank you for the savings at the gas pump!
The Civic Hatchback LX and Sport models each deliver an EPA-estimated 30 mpg in the city and 39 mpg on the highway when equipped with a 6-speed manual transmission.* The LX trim with CVT, the EX, and the EX-L Navi trims achieve an EPA-estimated 31 city mpg and 40 highway mpg,* while the Sport and Sport Touring CVT models get an EPA-estimated 30 city mpg and 36 highway mpg.*
Various features found onboard the 2017 Civic Hatchback are designed to boost the car’s performance and the overall driving experience for motorists. Included among them are features like:
Automatic Brake Hold: Automatic Brake Hold comes standard and is designed to retain brake pressure when the car comes to a stop. This feature keeps the Civic Hatchback in a stopped position until the driver presses the throttle pedal to resume acceleration, thus eliminating the need for drivers to keep a foot on the brake pedal while stopped in traffic or at a red light.
Straight Driving Assist: The Straight Driving Assist system found onboard the Civic Hatchback lessens the need for steering effort while drivers are traveling on crowned roads or slopes. If the system senses that extra steering effort is being applied on such a surface, motor assist comes to the driver’s aid, provided by the vehicle’s electric power steering system, to help keep the car from veering off course. Thanks to this feature, the driver only needs to use the same of amount of steering effort that is required on a level surface.
Eco Assist System: An Eco Assist System, which also comes standard, helps improve the Civic Hatchback’s fuel economy by regulating the performance of the engine, climate control system, transmission, and cruise control. Eco Assist can be activated or deactivated through a simple press of the ECON button, located behind the shift lever.
Agile Handling Assist: Agile Handling Assist is yet another standard offering found onboard the Civic Hatchback. This feature employs selective braking to enhance the car’s initial turning response and cornering ability, and it also helps reduce dangerous understeer and boosts handling confidence for the driver.
Hill Start Assist: Hill Start Assist helps keep the Civic Hatchback from rolling backward when the car begins accelerating from a stopped position on a hill or incline. Hill Start Assist is automatically activated when an incline is detected by the car’s sensors and the vehicle is found to be completely stopped in a reverse gear while facing downhill or in a forward gear while facing uphill.
Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control: Vehicle Stability Assist is an electronic stability control system that works in concert with the Civic Hatchback’s drive-by-wire throttle system and four-channel anti-lock braking system to bolster control during braking, cornering, acceleration, and sudden maneuvering. The VSA system additionally supplies a limited-slip differential effect by transferring brake force to any wheel that is slipping and redirecting driving power to wheels that have more traction.
