Honda Civic Hatchback Review
Choosing the right car depends on the factors that are most important to you. If you’re in the market for a compact vehicle with a little extra cargo space that can easily weave out of congested lanes or land the perfect parking spot, you may want to focus on the Honda Civic Hatchback.
At Norm Reeves Honda Superstore Cerritos, we’re going to delve in further and explore the Civic Hatchback so drivers in Cerritos, Buena Park, and Long Beach can get a stronger sense of what this vehicle truly offers them.
Civic Hatchback Power & Performance
The Civic Hatchback comes with a turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. The 1.5L turbo is able to produce 174 horsepower and 162 lb-ft of torque. However, when you opt for the Honda Civic Hatchback Sport or Sport Touring, you’ll see the output rise to 180 horsepower.
The engine comes paired with the Continuously Variable Transmission, which improves efficiency by executing direct gear transitions and making the accelerations smoother. The Sport and Sport Touring trims, however, include a 6-speed manual transmission to give drivers a more hands-on performance. The engines also include Direct Fuel Injection to reduce waste and to allow the vehicle to get the most out of every drop of fuel.
Interior Features & Cabin Space
The Honda Civic Hatchback includes the 5-inch Color LCD Screen that’s mounted into the dashboard that you can use to select your media options. Of course, the 7-inch Electrostatic Touchscreen is available with the next trim level. This system adds features like HondaLink® and Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. These features integrate your smartphone into the touchscreen so you can easily access it from the road.
This hatchback offers its five passengers 97.2 cubic feet of cargo space. Front-row passengers get 39.3 inches of headroom and 42.3 inches of legroom while second-row riders get 37.4 inches of headroom and 36 inches of legroom. The Civic Hatchback also includes 25.7 cubic feet of cargo space which can expand to 46.2 cubic feet when the second row is folded flat.
Honda Sensing® Safety Technology
The Honda Civic Hatchback comes standard with Honda Sensing®. This collection of driver-assisting technology features works alongside radar sensors that are mounted to the outside of the car. These sensors will measure the vehicle’s rate of approach and factor in the proximity of the vehicle or object ahead, to give the driver timely warning of any issue. The hatchback includes Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™), Road Departure Mitigation System, Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow, and the Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS).
