2017 Honda Civic Overview (See Available Styles)

  • New 5-door hatchback bodystyle
  • Two engine options: a 2.0-liter and a Turbo 1.5
  • Two transmissions available: 6-speed manual and CVT
The 2017 Honda Civic has added a 5-door hatchback version to go along with the 2-door coupe and 4-door sedan bodystyles. It competes with the Toyota Corolla, Ford Focus, and Hyundai Elantra.

5 trims are available for the coupe: the LX, LX-P, EX-T, EX-L, and Touring.

The sedan has 5 trims as well: the LX, EX, EX-T, EX-L, and Touring.

The hatchback comes with 4 trim levels: the LX, Sport, EX, and EX-L Navi.

Last year, the Civic underwent a dramatic redesign. It features angular, aggressive front- and rear-end bumpers, flared fenders, and deep-channel grooves along the side. The sedan has a pair of sabretooth-shaped taillights, while the coupe features a geometric taillight cluster that is unified by a long, narrow LED light bar. The coupe also has a more bulbous trunk lid than the sedan. The hatchback looks like a cross between the sedan and coupe, but it has bigger, meaner-looking faux air vents at the front and rear. Standard features include turn-signal indicators at the front fenders, body-color side mirrors, and a unique push-to-open fuel door. Available features include LED headlights, LED daytime running lights, front fog lights, a power moonroof, and larger 17-inch alloy wheels.

Under the hood, the Civic is powered by a standard 158-hp, 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine mated to a 6-speed manual transmission (6M) or an optional CVT. A more powerful 174-hp, turbocharged 1.5-liter 4-cylinder is also available, but it only comes with the CVT. Fuel economy ratings for Civic varies depending on bodystyle and trim level. The Turbo 1.5/CVT sedan model has the best EPA-estimated rating at 32/42 mpg city/highway. The LX, EX, and EX-L Navi Hatchback with the Turbo 1.5/CVT powertrain can also get a respective 31/40 mpg. The EX-T, EX-L, and Touring Coupe also earned a 31/40 mpg rating with the same powertrain.

Inside, the Civic has a standard cloth interior with a 60/40 split-folding rear seat. The center stack features a standard audio system that includes a 5-inch color display, CD/MP3 playback, Bluetooth connectivity for phone and audio, and a USB port. It can be upgraded with a 7-inch touchscreen, an integrated navigation system, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto compatibility, and a premium audio system. Standard features include automatic climate control, power windows/locks, cruise control, and remote keyless entry. Leather-trimmed seats, heated front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, push-button start, an automatic dimming rearview mirror, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel are available as well.

All three bodystyles earned a full 5-star overall crash test safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Standard safety features include a backup camera and a tire pressure monitoring system. Available features include forward collision warning, lane departure warning, and an emergency braking system.
