2017 Honda Civic Hatchback Reviews
The classic Honda Civic is now available as a hatchback, and the top critics in the automotive industry have a lot to say about it. Various publications have given the vehicle praise for its safety record, fuel economy, and spacious interior. The Car Connection even said, “we’re already sold. It’s a very good compact car.” Motor Trend, on the other hand, was impressed by its “stylish exterior.” Find out what the critics had to say before heading to Harmony Honda to make an assessment for yourself!
Design and Space
Car and Driver and Autoweek both like the Civic Hatchback’s design and interior space. Car and Driver praises the Hatchback’s versatility, while Autoweek describes the Hatchback as a great choice for those who frequently travel:
- Car and Driver: “The Civic [Hatchback] is quite attractive, with an overtly sporty design featuring gaping faux intakes and vents in both bumpers, a tight and fast roofline, and a neat spoiler integrated between the C-shaped taillights.”
- Autoweek: “Of course, the hatchback’s practical advantage has always been cargo capacity, and today’s is no different. A Civic sedan’s trunk can hold 15.1 cubic feet of stuff, but the Hatchback can swallow 25.7 cubic feet with all the seats in place.”
Performance and Features
Both The Car Connection and Kelley Blue book had a lot to say about the performance specs and available features of the hatchback configuration of the Civic. Both tout its performance as well as its practicality:
- The Car Connection: The Car Connection describes the Civic Hatchback’s powertrain as being equally strong and exciting. In addition to its performance specs, The Car Connection also spoke about the Civic’s fuel economy, which is just as strong as its Sedan and Coupe counterparts with “a 174-hp inline-4 that can also be paired to a six-speed manual or CVT. It’s the efficiency champ, and the most fun to drive.”
- Kelley Blue Book: Like its other Civic family members, the Hatchback provides well-loved features like the available Honda Sensing suite of safety features, which includes forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane-departure warning, and lane-keeping assist. This suite is available on any trim. Kelley Blue Book spoke to the vehicle’s “efficiency and practicality.”
