Exterior Design

Arriving with 5 doors and as bold as can be is the Honda Civic Hatchback. Underlining both sport style and compact utility, it’s a hatchback that gloriously represents the legendary Civic namesake. Available 18-wheels, dual centre exhaust and LED headlights all provide unmistakable racetrack-inspired elements providing a distinct, racing-inspired Honda look.

If that somehow isn’t enough, an available skirt package adds even more stark flair to your Civic Hatchback through underbody styling.

Interior Design

Hatchback style equals exceptional cargo space functionality, compact on the outside and spaciously inviting on the inside. That spells out the best-in-class rear cargo volume with the seats up, and with the seats down a variety of options to fit gear of all shapes and sizes. The rear seatback has 60/40 split-fold functionality that easily adapts to your needs, whether passenger or cargo. A retractable cargo cover hides away when you don’t need it, and when you do it provides convenient cargo securement.

With all that storage space comes a selection of available features that make the interior both more comfy and sporty, with heated front and rear seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, remote start and gorgeous textured aluminum pedals.

Performance & Efficiency

Taking a joyride around the city has never been more fun than in the Civic Hatchback, thanks to its 1.5L, 16-valve, Direct Injection, DOHC, turbocharged, 4-cylinder engine—giving the top trim up to 180 horsepower and 177 lb-ft of torque. True sport feel is bred out of the standard 6-speed manual transmission, although a CVT is available for those who just want to focus on the drive. Steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters are also available, offering an immersive experience for those times you want to feel like you’re on the racetrack. None of these options interfere with the Civic’s terrific fuel economy ratings, whether you’re tooling around the city or taking your hatchback out on the highway.

What’s New from the 2019 Honda Civic Hatchback?

While no big changes occurred for the Civic Sedan from 2019, the 2019 Civic Hatchback improved for itself. Refreshed style elements on both the front and rear of the hatchback provided some sharp adjustments, with a reshaped back bumper and a slightly modified front bumper and grille, accented by a dark trim around the headlights. That’s all supported by new wheel designs that continue to underline this Civic’s bold style. As well, the six-speed manual transmission isn’t just on the Sport trim anymore, but is now found on the top-level Sport Touring Hatchback trim.
