Perhaps the most exciting change for the 2017 Honda Civic is the return of the hatchback body style, which now joins the coupe and sedan. With this addition, drivers have three versions of their favorite vehicle to choose from, allowing for even more customization. The Civic is always a great choice thanks to its reliability, pricing, features, safety and efficiency, and now there is truly a model for everyone.
The Honda Civic offers more style than the average driver expects from such an affordable model. The coupe is nice and sleek and the hatchback has a special flair thanks to the rear doors. Every Civic will provide illumination and style with LED daytime running lights and taillights while automatic headlights add convenience. The Civic coupe and sedan were restyled for the previous model year, getting a more formal design.
The Civic’s cabin is a bit tamer than it has been in the past, and this is a good thing as you are unlikely to be overwhelmed thanks to its improved organization. Instead of a dual-tiered screen, there is just one, making the cabin seem less busy and ensuring everything is within reach. The interior fits four adults comfortably or five in a pinch, which is typical for models in its class. In many ways, this compact actually feels like a midsize sedan, including in terms of passenger space. Tall drivers will have room to fit their torsos and legs thanks to the recently lowered seating position. In reality, you can comfortably seat multiple 6-foot-tall adults. Inside, you will always be comfortable with automatic climate controls and plenty of power. You can also add leather upholstery or heated seats throughout to create a high-end feel. Every aspect of the 2017 Civic shows ingenuity, including the center console that opens deep enough to fit a tablet and has a configurable tray; there is also separate smartphone storage. Those looking at the Civic Hatchback will get 25.7 cubic feet behind the rear seats or 46.2 cubes with them folded down. Everything is protected with a cargo cover that can slide out from the sides of the cargo area.
The engine you get will depend on the 2017 Civic trim and body style you choose. The base Sedan and Coupe runs on a 158-horsepower 2.0-liter 4-cylinder and either a 6-speed manual or a CVT. The turbocharged 4-cylinder is standard on the Civic Hatchback and higher trims of the Coupe and Sedan. This engine has 174 horsepower and can work with a 6-speed manual or the CVT. It is the best choice for those who want a fun feel while behind the wheel along with plenty of efficiency. There is also a sportier running gear that can give you the athletic feel you are looking for. The Civic typically has class-leading fuel economy, although it will vary by configuration. Many Civic models also have an Econ button that will slow the throttle response and reduce the fan speed of the air conditioning along with other similarly small adjustments.
