2017 Honda Civic Hatchback

And, part of this can be attributed to the Civic’s competition. The slight increase in size, as well as the wild exterior looks, can be attributed to a couple of different factors. If you look at models like the Mazda 3 Hatchback, Volkswagen Golf, Subaru Impreza Hatchback, and most recently the Ford Focus Hatchback, you’ll see that they’ve all come with fresh and appealing designs. In short, the Project Leader for the Civic said it perfect, when speaking of the tenth-generation mode, saying, “Markets have changed since this generation, while rivals have improved their offerings. The Civic has been somewhat neglected in design in the past and was far too conservative for younger buyers to really take a heavy interest.
The front tray provides at-a-glance and grab-and-go access to devices, with an integrated wireless smartphone charging pad available on some grades. Both engines will be available with either a newly-designed six-speed manual transmission or a CVT automatic. 0-liter four-cylinder engine, the hatchback will have as standard those models’ optional 174-hp 1. Honda claims it will offer “the largest cargo-carrying capacity in the competitive set. The hatchback opens wide, and the cargo area is reasonably deep even with the rear seats up, creating just under 26 cubic feet of luggage space (23 cubic feet in the Sport trims)
Significant platform design features include front and rear bulkhead ‘rings’ that encircle the entire interior cabin space. Further platform rigidity is provided by a low-sensitivity front-floor structure, including cross braces in front of the engine bay and between the bases of the A- and B-pillars.
As such, the development process demanded new thinking and new approaches to body construction, aerodynamics, powertrain and chassis design. Despite the ambitious engineering programme, the new Civic still meets the requirements of “a car for all people, a car for the world” by retaining its position as an affordable compact car in terms of cost, fuel efficiency and manufacturability.
