2017 Honda Civic Hatch Sport is one for the drivers

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.

With the rear seats up, it offers 25.7 cubic feet of storage. Drop the seats and that grows to 46.2 cubic feet.

The Civic Hatch Sport gets its power from a 1.5-liter, turbocharged I4 engine.
