2018 Honda Civic Hatchback
The 2018 Honda Civic Hatchback returns after its successful debut last year. The hatchback fills an important slot in the Civic lineup, and the 2017 model earned high praise and All-Star awards. You can opt for this five-door Hatchback in the three-pedal Sport trim or as a luxury Touring hatch!
The 2018 Honda Civic Hatchback fills a space in the Civic lineup. It’s great for folks who want sometime more fun than the Sedan, but need just a bit more space than the Coupe. The Hatchback offers an angular, youthful style from its bold face to the unique rear hatch. The piano black grille and black mesh fascia inserts make up an aggressive front that leads into a body of sleek, sharp lines. It has the echoes of the Civic family aesthetics, but with sporty aggression dialed up to eleven.
The 2018 Honda Civic Hatchback offers seven exterior color options, from stately Crystal Black Pearl and Sonic Gray Pearl to exciting Rallye Red and fun Aegean Blue Metallic. Honda also offers plenty of ways to customize your Hatchback. You can add a tailgate spoiler, chrome door trim, and fun red rear and side underbody spoilers. You can also upgrade to 18-inch alloy wheels in a design unique to the 2018 Honda Civic Hatchback.
The 2018 Honda Civic Hatchback has tons of modern technology and features to make your life easier. Each Hatchback has a multi-angle rearview camera, which makes reversing and parallel parking a breeze. It also has a remote engine start system, which means you can start the car and the air conditioning before you even get there. Most trims also feature Honda LaneWatch, which helps you keep an eye on your blind spots for potential accidents.
The Hatchback offers plenty to keep you entertained, too. If you’re stuck in traffic or your friends don’t truly appreciate your fun driving, you can put on your favorite music easily. The 2018 Honda Civic Hatchback has a standard USB audio interface. You can plug in and charge your devices, and also control compatible digital services. And just in case anyone thinks you’re lost, the EX-L Navi and Sport Touring trims have Honda’s satellite-linked navigation system as a standard feature.
The 2018 Honda Civic Hatchback offers a variety of features that let you perfect your personal driving experience. The Sport and Sport Touring trims are decked out with performance-oriented extras. They’re equipped with standard paddle shifters, so that you have extra control over your drive.
The 2018 Honda Civic Hatchback boasts a feisty 1.5L turbocharged 4-Cylinder engine. It produces up to 180 horsepower and 177 lb-ft of torque for you to play with. You can get your Hatchback with a six-speed manual transmission, or choose a trim with Honda’s excellent CVT transmission. It offers prodigious grip through the corners, so you can really cut loose and trust that you won’t feel much body roll at all. Honda’s chassis design and light steering offer a lightning-quick responsiveness and sharp handling.
If you have a strong opinion on the manual versus the automatic transmission, you’re in luck. The 2018 Honda Civic Hatchback is available with either one, although the luxury trims offer only the CVT automatic transmission. If you’re planning on racing your hot hatch, the six-speed manual Sport ekes out a small lead over the automatic. If you hit all the gears right, you’ll be a fraction of a second faster to the quarter-mile mark, and about a second and a half quicker to reach 100 mph. If you’re in love with a manual gearbox, a split second is all you’ll need to justify a manual Hatchback Sport.
You won’t have to stop too often to get gas, either. The 2018 Honda Civic Hatchback makes up to 38 mpg on the highway. It makes for a smooth, serene commute or cruise, too. This hot hatch offers a great all-around, versatile performance for your weekday drive or your weekend fun.
One of the best things about the 2018 Honda Civic Hatchback is its interior versatility. The hatch opens to reveal a large cargo space that you can expand and rearrange with the 60/40 split-folding rear seats. The new Civic Hatchback also features the innovative reversible side-pull cargo cover. This makes it easy and quick to hide your valuables or keep your belongings out of direct sunlight, and the newly designed cover handily stays out of your way when it’s not in use.
When you’re not hauling cargo, the 2018 Honda Civic Hatchback easily seats five people with lots of room in the back for your stuff. The cockpit offers the driver all the conveniences and information you need. If you prefer leather seating, the EX-L Navi trim and above offers sleek black leather. You can also opt for a classy Black/Ivory leather color scheme.
For those cold winter mornings on the way to school or work, the 2018 Honda Civic Hatchback offers heated seats. You can even get heated outboard rear seats, so that your backseat passengers can also keep warm. Plus, the EX trim and above feature standard dual-zone automatic climate control. No need to agree on the perfect temperature if you can each set your own! For perfect comfort on your commute, the driver’s seat offers eight-way power adjustment.
The 2018 Honda Civic Hatchback is full of modern safety technology, too. Every Hatchback has vehicle stability assist with traction control, and braking assist systems with anti-lock brakes and electronic brake distribution. It also has a multi-angle rearview camera with guidelines. Some trims have dynamic guidelines, to actively help you navigate in reverse. You also get Honda’s ACE body structure and lots of standard airbags to protect you in the event of a crash.
The 2018 Honda Civic Hatchback also offers Honda Sensing, a suite of active safety and driver assist features. This suite comes standard on the Sport Touring trim, but it’s available on the LX, EX, and EX-L Navi trims as well. Honda Sensing features Forward Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning, Collision Mitigation Braking System, and Road Departure Mitigation System. These features will help you as the driver stay focused and safe on the road. In the event of an incident, they’ll kick in to help keep you safe and mitigate the damage.
The 2018 Honda Civic Hatchback comes in five trims, from the basic LX Manual to the luxurious Sport Touring. The LX comes with quite a few standard features already. If you need a fun car with basic amenities, the LX starts at just $19,900. If you want the sportier but still austere version, the Sport trim starts at $21,500 with all the underbody spoilers, extra horsepower, and bigger wheels included. The EX trim sits comfortably in the middle, with a standard CVT engine, a power moonroof, a seven-inch touchscreen display, and a few other grown-up touches.
If you want the sleek leather interior, upgrade to the EX-L Navi. Not only do you get a leather-trimmed interior, but it also has a standard satellite-linked navigation system. You also get heated front seats, and the standard eight-way power driver’s seat. Finally, the fancy Sport Touring trim comes with everything the others have, plus some extras. You’ll get the Honda Sensing suite standard, as well as an upgraded audio system. The Sport Touring also has standard dual-mode paddle shifters for extra sporty control.
