Automatic Civic Hatchback Is Both Fun And Comfortable

Honda’s newest Civic Type R has been in the spotlight recently as it is the first one to land on American shores, but we can’t forget about the standard Civic hatchback that made it all possible. Car And Driver certainly didn’t and they’ve recently reviewed a 2017 Civic Hatchback in Sport Touring with an automatic transmission.

As the trim suggests, the Sport Touring hatch is a combination of fun driving performance, comfort, ease of use, and practicality. The chassis tuning may not have been changed from the base trim models, but it does have a set of 18-inch rolling stock wheels with all-season tires and a steering ratio of 11.1:1.

Also unchanged is the 16-valve 1.5-liter turbocharged inline-four engine, but in both the Sport and the Sport Touring trims do get upgraded knock sensors and a center-exit dual exhaust. Add in some premium fuel and your hatch could pump out a claimed 180 horsepower and 162 lb-ft of torque, a 6hp boost compared to regular unleaded fuel.

Sure, some drivers will prefer a manual transmission, but according to the review, Honda’s CVT is “one of the best currently on the market.” It is responsive to throttle input and it enabled the Sport Touring hatch to sprint from 0-60 mph in 6.9 seconds, dash from 30-50 mph in 3.9 seconds, and complete a quarter mile in in 15.4 at 93 mph.

Add on 23 cubic feet of cargo space, quiet cabin, daily-driver livable ride quality and you have an exceptional vehicle for just $29,175.
