It’s been nearly 50 years since hatchback staples like the Gremlin and Pinto broke onto the scene. But those old-school hatches haven’t quite excelled in the 21st century—until now. Thanks to the 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback, this iconic car style is bound for greatness once again. And our car dealers near Port St. Lucie are glad to welcome it into the South Florida Honda Dealers family. Here’s why the newest Civic is pushing to bring the 70s back to life!
The baton was passed to the Civic Hatchback, and it’s finishing the race with style and grace. The aggressive front-end is accentuated by a mesh grille and sporty yet thin LED headlights. Wrapping around the side and into the wheel wells are the blinkers, which are subtle yet distinct. C-shaped LED taillights are split at the hatchback’s door hinges, and the same front mesh design is offset on the bumper. Its sloped back is what you’d expect from a modern hatchback, and the added flair of a spoiler gives the Civic an athletic appearance. Then there’s the one-touch power moonroof so that you can open up the cabin to Miami’s brisk springtime breeze.
From the driver’s seat, you’ll find everything but the trunk within reach. The LED-lit instrument cluster appears futuristic, but it’s incredibly simple to scan and never a distraction. A unique central storage console can adjust to fit tablets, small laptops, extra drinks, and then some. Available leather heated seats up the ante, while dual-zone automatic climate controls keep all passengers comfortable.
Speaking of passengers, the 2017 Civic Hatchback doesn’t just have available seating for five, but actual seating for five. A wide stance helps this Civic achieve such interior volume. And when folding down the 60/40 rear seats, storage space nearly doubles to 46.2 cubic feet—just enough to pack in enough supplies for a weekend beach getaway.
High Performance with Loads of Tech
The 2017 Civic Hatchback kicks out 174 hp with its standard turbocharged engine; Sport and Sport Touring trims come with an upgraded sport-tuned suspension and engine that produces 180 horsepower. Paddle shifters give you more passing power with the flick of a wrist, and Honda’s premier CVT allows this hatchback to stay in the upper echelons of fuel-efficiency.
The Civic Hatchback also leads the pack when it comes down to technology. Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation is standard on EX-L Navi models and up, allowing you to get quick directions to wherever you’re heading. The multi-angle rearview camera is standard on all trim levels, offering three distinct views with the tap of a finger: normal, top-down, and wide. Remote Engine Start is another class-defining feature that now comes standard on the EX models, though most younger drivers will fall in love with the hatchback’s audio and streaming capabilities. SiriusCM®, Pandora®, Apple CarPlay™, and Android Auto™ are all available streaming options, which are made even better by the Civic’s first-ever 540-watt, 12-speaker sound system. Pump the tunes, young’un!
