New Turbocharged 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback Commercial Trailer – Video
ased on the 10th-generation Civic—which has been out in four-door-sedan form since last fall, and as a two-door coupe since this spring—the new Civic hatchback will land on U.S. soil with a four-door body and a sportier bent. (We mean “land” literally, too: The Civic hatch will be built in Swindon, U.K., and exported to the United States.) It won’t quite be an Si, and neither will it be a flame-spitting Type R; both models are under development with more power, tauter handling, and other performance enhancements. But where other Civics come with a 158-hp naturally aspirated 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, the hatchback will have as standard those models’ optional 174-hp 1.5-liter turbocharged four. Better still, the hatchback appears to debut the enthusiast-friendly six-speed-manual/turbo-four powertrain combination that Honda promised would proliferate throughout the 2017 Civic lineup.
