The pricing and specifications for the 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback has been announced. The base model is priced at $20,535 in U.S. stores.
The LX model will have a couple of essential features including split folding rear seats, cruise control, hill start assist and uses a six-speed manual transmission. Buyers have the option to upgrade their car to a CVT automatic gear which will boost the price to a slightly higher $21,335. The pricing of the LX hatchback is higher than Honda’s LX sedan because the latter is powered by a 2.0-liter engine. The more powerful engine obviously contributes to the increased pricing of the sedan.
For better comfort and driving experience, buyers can opt for the 2017 Honda Civic hatchback Sport model. Priced at $22,135, the specific model adds leather wrapping to the steering wheel, the gear knob and uses racing pedals. Sticking true to the Sport tag, the car tries to recreate the specifics of a sports car on a commuter’s model. The CVT version of the model is priced at $22,935.
Going further up the trim line, the Civic is offered in an EX variant priced at $23,635. A bunch of notable upgrades are found in the trim line including integrated Apple Car Play, Android Auto services for easy smartphone connectivity, Honda display audio system with heated front seats and dual zone automatic climate control. The trimline also includes push button start and front passenger seatback pocket.
The EX-L Navi adds more features like eight-way power driver seat, automatic dimming capability for the rear mirror and fully leather seats. The pricing is at $26,135. If you are the most demanding of the customers and would settle for nothing but the top of the line variant, it might be bit disappointing to know that the pricing for the 2017 Honda Civic hatchback Sport Touring edition is not revealed yet.
However, we do know what you will find in this model. A surround speaker system with 12-speaker setup, red color illumination on instrument panel, automatic wipers, aluminium pedals, and outboard seats with heating rear seats.
The entire lineup of cars from Honda is powered by a 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. It has the capacity to produce up to 174 horsepower with 167 lb feet of torque. The model is available in U.S. dealerships now. The more powerful version of the Honda Civic 2017 edition, the Sport and Sport Touring will compromise slightly on fuel efficiency when compared to the entry level models.
