The Honda Civic Hatchback features a 1.5L in-line 4-cylinder engine with single-scroll turbocharger and computer-controlled direct injection to deliver exceptional performance. The same engine is fitted across all trims, but output differs a little between them:
Up to 174 hp and 162 lb-ft of torque as standard with the LX
Up to 180 hp and 177 lb-ft of torque with Sport Models
Up to 180 hp and 162 lb-ft of torque with Sport Touring Models
Standard output is particularly impressive. Just check out how rival hatchback models compare:
Toyota Corolla Hatchback: Up to 168 hp and155 lb-ft of torque as standard.
Mazda3 Hatchback: Up to 155 hp and 150 lb-ft of torque as standard.
The Honda Civic keeps MPG ratings high while still offering an energy-packed ride, and it does that by refining power through one of two cutting-edge transmission systems.
6-Speed Manual Transmission: Perfect for the driving enthusiast, the Honda Civic Hatchback’s manual transmission offers low internal friction for precision shift action and close-ratio gears for outstanding acceleration.
Continuously Variable Transmission (LL-CVT): Instead of using fixed gears, CVT constantly adjusts gear ratios for strong MPG ratings and seamless performance. Dual-mode paddle shifters are available with Sport models and fitted as standard in Sport Touring models to provide direct control.
Drivers can expect to make:
Up to an EPA rated 31 mpg in the city and 40 mpg on the highway* with Continuously Variable Transmission.
Up to an EPA rated 29 mpg in the city and 38 mpg on the highway* with 6-speed manual.
