Sure, it packs excellent fuel economy, ample storage space and an aggressive base price, but the Civic Hatch Sport can also drive, which means Honda got its groove back.
You can fit plenty of junk in this trunk.
The 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback takes what's great about the Civic sedan, and gives it a larger tuchus.
With the rear seats up, it offers 25.7 cubic feet of storage. Drop the seats and that grows to 46.2 cubic feet.
It's also a looker -- if you don't mind a smattering of fake vents, front and rear.
It's not traditional Honda design, but it's nice to see an automaker taking a chance with a mass-market model.
The Civic Hatch Sport gets its power from a 1.5-liter, turbocharged I4 engine.
Output is a respectable 180 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque.
This new motor provides some serious hustle for a base Civic, thanks to all that torque.
It's let down by a not-so-great combination of pedal and shifter feel, though.
