The Civic Hatchback is going on sale in the United States, and the highlights of the range are the new Sport and Sport Touring trims.

The 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback goes on sale in the United States on September 26 for a base price of $20,535 (after $835 destination for all models) for the LX trim with a six-speed manual gearbox. Opting for the CVT would push the cost to $21,355.

Customers looking for more performance (like anyone reading Motor1) should consider the new Sport and Sport Touring trims. You can distinguish them on the outside by upgrades like the center-mounted twin exhaust pipes. Like all versions of the Civic Hatchback, this pair uses the 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, but it makes 180 horsepower (134.2 kilowatts) compared to 174 hp (129.8 kW) in the other models. Torque jumps to 177 pound-feet (240 Newton-meters) with a six-speed manual or 162 lb-ft (219.6 Nm) with the CVT. Regular Civics make 167 lb-ft (226.4 Nm) with a manual transmission and 162 lb-ft with a CVT.

The Sport trim costs $22,135 with a manual or $22,935 with the CVT. The models share more of the equipment with the base LX version, but they also benefit from upgrades like leather upholstery for the steering wheel and gearshift.

The Sport Touring goes on sale later as the range-topping trim, and Honda doesn’t yet have pricing for it. The CVT is the only available gearbox. The models include amenities like automatic windshield wipers, heated seats for the front and rear, dual-zone climate control, and a 12-speaker stereo.

For customers who don’t want the extra power, there are also the EX for $23,635 and EX-L Navi at $26,135. They use the less powerful tune of the turbocharged engine but benefit from features like heated front seats and LED interior accent lighting.

Customers can now get the Civic as a Sedan, Coupe, and Hatchback. The new Sport models offer a little more performance in the lineup, too. However, the Type R is the one really to look forward to. Honda will use the five-door as a base for it, and the hot hatch will arrive sometime in 2017. The model will have an aggressive front fascia, small hood scoop, and possibly in excess of the current version’s 306 hp (228 kW).

New Euro-Inspired 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback Arrives from Across the Pond

New model continues rollout of the 10th-generation Civic lineup and introduces new Sport and Sport Touring trims
Hatchback provides appealing combination of sporty styling, efficiency, versatility and premium content
All trims powered by 1.5-liter DOHC direct-injected turbo engine
Arriving in showrooms starting next Monday, the striking 2017 Civic Hatchback joins the 2016 Civic Sedan and Coupe as the third body style in the 10th-generation Civic lineup. Combining Euro-inspired styling and 5-door hatchback versatility with world-class driving dynamics and Honda direct-injected turbo engine technology, the Civic Hatchback is designed for buyers seeking an even more expressive, sporty and versatile Civic. The 2017 Civic Hatchback will begin to arrive at dealers Monday with a starting manufacturer's suggested retail price of $19,7001 for the LX with 6-speed manual transmission.

Built on the same world-class platform as the Civic Sedan and Coupe, the 2017 Civic Hatchback offers an appealing combination of sporty styling, efficiency, interior utility and premium features. The Civic Hatchback is available in five trims: LX, Sport, EX, EX-L Navi and a new line-topping Sport Touring4 version. All models are equipped with a 1.5-liter DOHC direct-injected and turbocharged in-line 4-cylinder engine with peak outputs of 174 horsepower2 in LX, EX and EX-L Navi trims, and 180 horsepower2 in the Sport and Sport Touring trims which feature a dual-outlet center-mounted exhaust and are designed to benefit from premium unleaded fuel.

Powertrain
The Civic Hatchback's turbocharged engine can be mated to either a sporty CVT (all trims) or a quick-shifting 6-speed manual transmission (LX and Sport trims) and boasts class-leading EPA fuel economy ratings of 31/40/34 mpg2(city/highway/combined; LX, EX & EX-L Navi w/ CVT).

Working in concert with the Honda turbocharged powertrain is the Civic's more rigid and lightweight body and sophisticated chassis design, featuring a fully independent suspension system with liquid-filled bushings, sport-tuned electronic power steering (EPS) with variable gear ratio, and powerful 4-channel anti-lock disc brakes with Electronic Brake Distribution and Hill Start Assist. These systems synergize to endow the Civic Hatchback with nimble, sophisticated handling and a firm yet comfortable ride.
