All New 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback

New 10th gen Civic

Honda took off the veil to their all new Civic hatchback at the Geneva International Auto Show. The Civic hatchback has not been on North American soil since the early 2000’s. But with a huge wave of hot hatches making a comeback in the likes of VW’s Golf and Ford’s Focus, it is in Honda’s best interest to bring their hot hatch to the table and appease the Honda fanboys.

Jeff Conrand, GM of Honda Division, stated, “The hatchback gives us an entree to a group of people that we haven’t been able to reach, haven’t been able to serve in the past.” Interestingly, judging by the aftermarket support to the Civic hatchback and the saturation of Civics in grassroots motorsports, I can certainly say the demand is there.

The 2017 model year Civic hatchback will be sold with a 1.5L turbo four cylinder engine that produces 174hp and 162lb/ft of torque. This is an all new engine from Honda and there will be a highly tuned variant that will later be put in the Civic Type-R.

Look for the new hatchback to make its way onto showroom floors later this year.
