Introduction: The all-new Honda Civic Hatchback

The 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback burst onto the scene and impressed almost everyone that saw it, including us! It gave a whole host of new features and improvements. We had been waiting for this one for a long time, and it was definitely worth the wait. Here’s everything you need to know about the 2017 Civic, as far as what it offered and why we loved it so much.

We’ve just finished our prelim report of the new Accord generation, but wanted to take a look back at the Civic that shaped the future of the Honda styling for the recent generations.

What was new with the Civic in 2017?

First off, let’s talk about what was new. The most obvious change was the addition of a hatchback body style, which gives the car a sportier look and feel. But that’s not all – under the hood, there was an awe inspiring turbocharged engine option ( which we will get to in a bit… don’t worry ) that promise to deliver some serious power. And inside, you found an updated infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support.

Whether you’re taking a road trip or just running errands around town, the Civic hatchback has the space and versatility to get the job done.

While we wouldn’t say it is a huge small car… if that makes sense, it fits 4 people and is a bit snug… so we wouldn’t advertise it as a great long road trip option for more than two people. But if there’s just two people going for a long drive, we’d list this as one of the top choices… if only for the….

You honestly won’t be able to beat this car for the price they were going at. Now that we have Covid pricing the prices have gone up but before the increase they were a steal. They combine an aggressive new looking car with enough power to make it fun to drive but not destroy your yearly budget when you need to fill it up.

While we love this Civic, we just can’t find any place that we really loved it more than we Love our Accord… so as much as we’d love to pick one up maybe when the price drops down a bit we will be able to get one for a drive around town.
