Honda has just released the 2017 Civic Hatchback prices today and according to the Left Lane News, the five door Civic is set to appear on showroom floors next Monday!

Pricing will start at $19,700 for the base LX model which is $1,060 more than its base model sedan sibling, It will come with a 1.5-liter turbocharged in-line 4-cylinder engine that can crank out 174 HP and 167 lb-ft of torque. The icing on top for manual enthusiasts is the 6-speed manual transmission that it’s paired with. For a bit more, at $20,500, buyers can add a CVT to the LX but this variant is rated at 162 lb-ft of torque instead of 167.

In total, there are five trims buyers can choose from; LX, Sport, EX, EX-L Navi and Sport Touring. Both the Sport and Sport Touring models will be packing a few extra ponies at 180 HP and 177 lb-ft of torque. Also, the two Sport models will be equipped with a dual-outlet center-mounted exhaust meaning, the two variants may require premium unleaded fuel.

Only the LX and Sport models will come with an optional 6-speed manual transmission and if maximum power is actually more accessible with manual as peak power is reached at 5,500rpm instead of the 6,000rpm for the CVT.

Below is a complete chart of all of the prices and we can expect to see the Civic Hatchback Sport Touring model to go on sale before the end of this year.

Drove through the local dealership this evening just after they closed. Lots of 2017s on the lot, along with quite a few '16s, but not a single hatchback. Maybe they had them inside, out of view, but nothing you could see. If they have them, they may have put them in the service bays until Monday, but the showroom and the service department are open tomorrow. Of course the hatchbacks could still be at the distribution center on a truck or two waiting for delivery Monday morning.

I don't think every dealership will be showcasing the hatchback come Monday. Probably just a date for when they'll start showing up.

If they're going on sale Monday, why isn't the hatchback build page available?

honda website has the build page up for the hatchback
Too bad it doesn't work at all, despite how long it took them to reveal and give us any info on the car you'd think they'd have had plenty of time to get a functioning build page in order :/

it worked for me....just didn't have all the specs or what equipment upgrades for each model. also, all their pictures are of the Sport Touring*










*Sport Touring available this winter.



but, the 18" optional wheels were pretty slick in my opinion!!!!!!!!! but, $1,700 for a set of 4! not happening in my budget

Are we looking at 32K for a Si model you think? So 45K for a Type-R?
noooooo. The Si has never just been the most expensive model... the EXL used to have a higher starting price than the Si. Given how much 10th gen prices increased compared to 9th gen i'd say the Si will start out around $25k as it's always essentially been an EX with a different engine.

I expect the 10th gen Si to mimic the EXT trim level features plus whatever upgrade to engine and suspension it gets. So probably about a 2k increase over the 23k of the EXT... with the possibility of a leather option for the Si to bump it into the 27k range possibly.

$32k is closer to what the Type R should cost... current type R if we do a direct euro to dollar calculation is in the 30-35k range, i don't expect that price to go up much for the 10th gen CTR if honda hopes to sell a single one. 45k for a CTR is way too much, they'd never sell at that price, no matter what kind of performance it has it's still got civic level features/refinement and would never hold a candle to much more powerful/nicer cars that cost less than 45k. Even the GolfR (arguably the CTRs closest competition) starts just below 40k and it's AWD.

I feel 27K for a higher HP boosted Si is pretty good.

Yea, 27-28k for an Si that adds leather and a few other little features i think would be a big seller. Kind of like a touring model but with more power/better handling. And then 25k for the lower model Si with EXT features and cloth seats. It appeals to both the budget minded and those that want more luxury in a sport coupe. And that leaves plenty of wiggle room for the CTR to come in at 32-35k and undercut cars like the Golf R in price (but most likely with more features than the golf)

Apparently, civic hacthbacks are already appearing at dealerships in California and Canada! HondaPro Jason has a few pictures of the hatchback on dealer lots. Still wish the reflectors weren't yellow.

I still definitely feel that either white or blue is the best color on the hatch. Either go high contrast with the black bits or mute them with a darker color. That said, the black is almost TOO MUCH black for my taste and i thing might benefit from some of the sedan/coupe chrome bits to lighten it up and make it look less... hearse-like.

I'm also not totally sold on the darker gray EX (EXT/EXL on coupe and sedan) wheels on the hatch, they definitely look better in a brighter silver to enhance the black painted parts.

Can't wait to see one in grey. On Honda's website it looks to be just about the best looking color in terms of what makes the Civic Hatch upscale.
Aside from that, black is looking really good here, the only downside is making sure the black paint stays that way during ownership.
