Honda Civic Hatchback set to debut in US this fall for 2017 model year

In fall this year, Honda will debut its Civic Hatchback in the US market, for the 2017 model year. The imminent availability of the hatchback in the US will mark the third body style -- in addition to the coupe and the sedan -- of Honda’s 10th-generation Civic lineup to hit the country.

The forthcoming Honda Civic Hatchback – which has been a long-time staple in the European market – will be the first five-door Civic hatchback to be introduced by Honda in the US market. Honda has revealed that the Civic Hatchback will serve as the base for a sporty Civic Type-R model which the company plans to launch in future.

The styling of the Honda Civic Hatchback is largely similar to that of the sedan and coupe variants of the Civic, except for the rear hatch. The hatchback comes with a notably sleek roofline as well as Honda’s new corporate grille.

According to the details shared by Honda, the upcoming Civic Hatchback in the US will be available in LX, Sport, EX, EX-L, and Sport Touring trims. All the models of the hatchback will be equipped with Honda’s 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine.

The engine installed in the LX, EX, and EX-L models of the Honda Civic Hatchback in the US has the capability to deliver 174 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque; while the engine of the Sport and Sport Touring models will be capable of delivering 180 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque, thanks partly to the inclusion of a freer-flowing center-exit exhaust.
