The 2019 Honda Civic Hatchback recently went head-to-head in a test with Car and Driver! This acclaimed car magazine pitted the Civic Hatchback against the 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback to compare two excellent versions of the versatile compact hatchback model. The trusty little hatchback offers practicality, value, quality, and fun driving performance all in one package. Here’s how Car and Driver magazine lined the two of them up!
For this comparison test, Car and Driver picked the front-wheel-drive hatchback versions of the popular Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla models. They also selected six-speed manual transmissions on both models for maximum quick-shifting driving fun. The Honda’s six-speed manual is honed to a fine example of racing pedigree, and the Civic Hatchback lets you experience that sporty background behind the wheel. Where Car and Driver reported the Corolla falling short on its sporty exterior, the Civic’s performance changes from comfortable daily driver to precision racer as soon as you put the pedal down. This compact little hatchback moves with precision, tight control, and a nice amount of feedback. While both of these hatchbacks ride comfortably and track calmly on long road trips and commutes, the Civic Hatchback pulls ahead on track days.
The test drives around Car and Driver magazine’s track also gave the 2019 Honda Civic Hatchback a chance to stretch its legs. Its 1.5-liter turbocharged engine produces 180 horsepower and 177 lb.-ft of torque. Both of these compact hatchbacks produce 85 decibels of full-throttle noise inside the cabin when they’re really put through their paces, but both are equally sedate and quiet on the drive home. Short gear ratios make the manual Civic Hatchback a thrilling, connected ride on the track. It also readily offers up torque for quick boosts of speed when you need to overtake. Car and Driver magazine also noted that in other tests of a Civic Hatchback Sport Touring model with the available CVT transmission, the zero-to-60 time was even more impressive!
On the inside, the 2019 Honda Civic Hatchback is practical and comfortable, providing lots of space for versatile, everyday use. If you’re driving your friends out for a beach day, you’ll find plenty of room for all five of your passengers plus all the beach-going gear you need. Heading out on a long-distance road trip? The Civic Hatchback’s 97 cubic feet of space is there for anything you think you’ll need on the way. Even with all the seats up, the Civic’s nifty hatch contains 23 cubic feet of cargo space. All of this versatile space can be easily used for transporting cargo, moving your furniture, or hauling your luggage to your holiday destination!
