2017 Honda Civic – everything you need to know!
Honda announced later this year that Europe version of new 2017 Honda Civic sedan will hit the market in early 2017, while at the same time cope and sedan version of this model have already been presented in the US. Now new Honda Civic Hatchback has been revealed ahead of its world debut at the 2016 Paris auto show. This new version will be made in Swindon factory in the UK and it will be characterized by upgraded design, more spacious interior and new engine which will offer great combination of dynamic performance and exceptional economy.
2017 Honda Civic Hatchback exterior and interior changes
As you already may know, the 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback resembles the Civic hatchback concept car, which is not a bad thing, because it is quite attractive, with an openly sporty design featuring gaping faux intakes and vents in both bumpers, a tight and fast roofline, and a neat spoiler integrated between the C-shaped taillights. Since it is also available in Sport and Sport Touring model trim, expect a subtle, black-painted body kit, smoke-gray wheels, and black window and grille trim in place of the chrome on the Civic sedan and coupe. Big changes come at the rear, and include a hatch with glass that’s divided by a spoiler spanning the taillights. And in case you’re wondering all of the air back there won’t be properly spoiled, there’s a small body-color spoiler at the top of the hatch, as well. The Sport’s center-exit exhaust sits within a pretty angular rear fascia, and we expect that angularity will be continued in front like it is on the other Civic bodies.
In the cabin, the hatch has a similar arrangement to the sedan as well as sports car models up front. The smartly designed, single-tier cockpit console is a huge upgrade over the previous Civic as well as features a center location that presents multiple automobile functions. The 7.0-inch touchscreen navi/infotainment system is likewise less complicated to utilize than previous Civics, as are HVAC manages simply below it. Cubby spots abound, consisting of below the gearshift area where USB ports stay (handsfree mobile phone charging is additionally readily available). Rear seat legroom is more than appropriate, even for passengers in the six foot array, although the hatch’s sloping back does compromise clearance for taller individual. Its 60/40 split fold rear seats are easy to run. The pole positions fit with a modicum of assistance, and the motorist side helm has 8-way operation at its leading trim degree. In general, it’s ergonomically audio as well as well screwed together for its price point.
Engine and specs of new Honda Civic 2017 Hatchback
The most exciting news from Honda are pretty much turned toward engine and transmission. The hatchback is offered in LX, Sport, EX, EX-L Navi and Sport Touring trims, all of which come with Honda’s 1.5L turbocharged 4 cylinder engine which is more than a great news. This engine is shared with the Civic coupe and sedan, but the hatchback doesn’t get the naturally aspirated 2.0L 4 cyl. available in lower-end versions of those models. But the even better news is that the hatchback will be available with six-speed manual or CVT automatic transmissions, becoming the first Civic model to offer the turbo engine with a manual. Epic! Can you say toned down type R in hatchback body?In LX, EX, and EX-L models, the engine makes the same 174 HP and 162 lb-ft of torque it does in the Civic coupe and sedan. But the Sport and Sport Touring models will get a boost to 180 HP and 162 lb-ft, thanks in part to a freaking good looking, free-flowing centrally placed exhaust. We are already pumped, how about you?
The 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback for European market will debut with the brand-new 1.0-litre VTEC turbocharged three-cylinder as well as 1.5-litre VTEC turbocharged four-cylinder engines with 201 horse power,both targeted at Ford’s EcoBoost engines supplied in the Ford Focus, its arch rival.
Baseding on a current report, the 1.0-litre turbocharged gasoline engine will create 127 hp as well as 148 lb.-ft. of torque, with a CO2 discharge rating of 99 g/km. It would certainly change the 1.8-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine, while the 1.6-litre i-DTEC diesel engine will likely proceed.
