Enjoy Exceptional Efficiency and an Unforgettable Ride Thanks to the 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback’s Performance
Under the hood of each Honda Civic Hatchback model roars a 1.5L turbocharged In-Line 4-cylinder engine that produces between 174 and 180 hp and between 162 and 177 lb-ft of torque.
This powerhouse engine comes mated to either a 6-speed automatic transmission or an available continuously variable transmission. Engine delivery is enhanced by features like direct fuel injection and a drive-by-wire throttle system.
No matter where you’re headed, you’ll be bypassing gas stations a lot more often when the Honda Civic Hatchback is your vehicle of choice. With such incredible fuel savings, drivers will wonder how they ever survived before this exceptional car came their way!
The LX and Sport models each achieve an EPA-estimated 30 mpg in the city and 39 mpg on the highway when equipped with 6-speed manual transmission.* With continuously variable transmission, those numbers increase to an EPA-estimated 31 city and 40 highway mpg on the LX and 30 city and 36 highway mpg on the Sport.*
Onboard the EX and EX-L Navi trims, fuel economy is an EPA-estimated 31 mpg in the city and 40 mpg on the highway.*
The Honda Civic Hatchback’s performance delivery is further enhanced by a variety of features that are designed to turn up the car’s ride quality and efficiency. These features include:
Eco Assist System:
The Honda Civic Hatchback’s standard Eco Assist System helps enhance fuel economy onboard this impressive car. This system regulates things like engine performance, the climate control system, transmission, and cruise control to maximize efficiency. Eco Assist is activated or deactivated by a simple press of the ECON button behind the shift lever.
Straight Driving Assist:
The Honda Civic Hatchback’s Straight Driving Assist system reduces the need for steering input when motorists are driving on slopes or crowned roads. When the system detects extra steering effort on one of these surfaces, the electric power steering system delivers motor assist to help the vehicle stay on course. With this feature, drivers need only exert the same amount of muscle on a sloped surface as they would on level ground!
Automatic Brake Hold:
Standard Automatic Brake Hold retains brake pressure when the Civic Hatchback comes to a stop. This feature keeps the car in a stopped position until the throttle pedal is pressed and acceleration is resumed, thereby eradicating the need for drivers to keep their foot on the brake while stopped in traffic.
Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control:
The Civic Hatchback’s Vehicle Stability Assist is an electronic stability control system that works cooperatively with the four-channel anti-lock braking system and the drive-by-wire throttle system to improve control when braking, cornering, accelerating, and maneuvering. The VSA system also provides a limited-slip differential effect by transferring braking power to wheels that are slipping and rerouting driving force to the wheels that have more traction.
Agile Handling Assist:
Another of the Civic Hatchback’s standard features is Agile Handling Assist. Agile Handling Assist uses selective braking to boost the vehicle’s cornering ability and initial turning response. This feature additionally aids in reducing dangerous understeer and increasing handling confidence.
Hill Start Assist:
Standard Hill Start Assist helps keep the Honda Civic Hatchback from rolling when it starts accelerating from a stopped position on a hill or incline. Hill Start Assist automatically goes to work if the vehicle’s sensors detect an incline or if the car is completely stopped in a forward gear while facing uphill or a reverse gear while facing downhill.
