You don't have to tell us at Hall Honda Virginia Beach that the Honda Civic is an incredibly popular model. Available in the States as a coupe or a sedan, the Civic is attractive, reliable, and affordable--always a popular combo. But there's been a third version of the Civic out there in the world, the hatchback, that's been a sort of "forbidden fruit" to US customers. Until now, that is. This fall, the Honda Civic Hatchback will be available in North America.

The 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback is a new, Euro-inspired twist on the 2016 North American Car of the Year, offering five-door versatility along with sporty styling and a premium interior. The new model will be available in five trims (LX, Sport, EX, EX-L, and Sport Touring), all powered by the same 1.5-liter DOHC direct-injected turbocharged in-line 4-cylinder engine. Horsepower and torque will range from 174 to 180 and 162 lb-ft to 177 lb-ft respectively, based on trim level and transmission (CVT or six-speed manual).

Further improving on the 10th-generation Civic lineup, the 2017 Hatchback perfectly encapsulates the marriage of form and function, with its rigid and lightweight body working in concert with its turbocharged powertrain. Similarly, the interior of the vehicle not only comes equipped with modern, sophisticated materials and styling, but also class-leading volume and cargo capacity.

There's more to love about the 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback, of course, including the technological innovations in the available Honda Sensing™ suite of safety and driver-assistive systems, but it really needs to be experienced to be believed. The all-new hatchback arrives at Hall Honda Virginia Beach this fall, so call, contact us online, or visit us in person at 3516 Virginia Beach Blvd, Virginia Beach, VA 23452 to learn more about it--or any of the other exciting Honda models on our lot.
