2017 Honda Civic Hatchback Florence SC
When it comes to compact cars, one automaker consistently stays on top. The 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback in Florence SC mixes the perfect blend of simple and sporty styling with an ideal balance of efficiency and power. If it looks good and runs well, it’s sure to be a winner already, but Honda takes things a step further by providing a host of standard and available technologies to improve the driving experience. This means a smooth, quiet ride that is both safe and comfortable for you.
The return of the Honda Civic Hatchback is big news for the model year because it hasn’t been in production since 2005. The body style can be a bit polarizing for the market, as some brands do a better job than others at making them appear modern and stylish, rather than a bit dowdy. It’s already obvious that Honda has put the time and energy into keeping the Civic Hatchback in line with the aesthetic of the model, as the rear retains a sloped appearance rather than a swift drop off along the back.
A single engine option powers all 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback trims: a 1.5-liter direct-injection turbocharged DOHC 4-cylinder. This engine delivers up 174 horsepower and 167 pound-feet of torque to the base trim to provide ample acceleration from a stop, and starts off paired with a 6-speed manual.
The 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback will come in LX, Sport, EX, EX-L and Sport Touring trims, leaving shoppers with plenty of options when it comes to standard and available features. Some of the premium options will include the Honda Sensing suite, Honda Display Audio, heated front seats and remote start.
One of the reasons the hatchback segment is increasing is because it is one of the most convenient for those seeking a compact car. The 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback is class-leading in cargo capacity and total interior space comes in at 122.9 cubic feet. Rear seat passengers benefit with 36 inches of legroom.
2017 Honda Civic Features and Trim Levels
Though there will be just the one engine option, there are a total of five trims to provide a host of different options from the base LX up to the aggressively styled Sport Touring trim. There will also be two transmission options for the model year, either a six-speed manual for the LX and Sport trims, or a continuously variable transmission available on all trims.
Either transmission will deliver stellar fuel economy ratings to the 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback, but the CVT is something of a star for the model as it can help the base trim earn up to an EPA-estimated 31 city and 40 highway mpg rating. *
The Honda Civic remains a top seller for the brand for a number of reasons, and it’s only expected to get more popular as practical and athletic elements come together in the Civic Hatchback. If you’ve been waiting for 12 years to see this model come back to the market, now is the time to jump on the chance to take if for a test drive.
