The fog light vent looks different than the one we saw on the hatchbacks in transit. Does this make the rendering a touring model or turbo?

It's probably because this is a sport touring with Sensing, what you're seeing is the sensor shield in the foglight vent. Non-sensing models won't have that.

All-New 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback Arrives This Fall in North America

Aug 15, 2016

First 5-door Hatchback for Civic lineup in the U.S.
Civic Hatchback combines Euro-inspired styling and five-door versatility
All models powered by 1.5-liter DOHC direct-injected turbo engine
Civic Hatchback will serve as the basis for radical new Civic Type-R

TORRANCE – Arriving this fall in North America, the 2017 Civic Hatchback is the latest addition to the much-heralded 10th-generation Honda Civic lineup, joining the 2016 North American Car of the Year – the Civic Sedan, and the Civic Coupe that launched earlier this year. The 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback combines striking, Euro-inspired styling and five-door versatility with the Civic's world-class driving dynamics and Honda direct-injected turbo engine technology. The Civic Hatchback, scheduled to arrive this fall at Honda dealers nationwide, also will serve as the basis for the radical new Civic Type-R launching in the U.S. in 2017.

"The Civic Hatch has been a staple for Honda in Europe, but has long been the forbidden fruit for Honda fans in the U.S.," said Jeff Conrad, senior vice president and general manager of the Honda Division of American Honda Motor Co., Inc. "Now, we're bringing this sporty, stylish and versatile Civic Hatchback to North America, as we amp up the performance of our incredible Civic lineup with each new Civic model."

Built on the same world-class platform as the 10th-generation Civic Sedan and Coupe, the 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback offers an appealing combination of sporty styling, efficiency, interior utility and premium features. The Civic Hatchback will be available in LX, Sport, EX, EX-L, and Sport Touring trims, and will feature a single engine for the U.S. market: a 1.5-liter DOHC direct-injected turbocharged in-line 4-cylinder with peak output of 174 horsepower and 162 lb.-ft. of torque in LX, EX and EX-L trims and 180 horsepower and 162 lb.-ft. of torque in the Sport and an all-new Sport Touring grade, which feature a high-flow center-mounted exhaust.

The turbocharged engine will be offered with either a sporty CVT (all trims) or a performance-inspired 6-speed manual transmission (LX, Sport, and EX trims). Anticipated EPA fuel economy ratings of 31/40/34 mpg (city/highway/combined) for CVT-equipped models, based on the newer, more stringent model year 2017 EPA ratings requirements, put the 5-door Honda Civic Hatchback at the top of its class.

Working in concert with the Honda turbocharged powertrain is the Civic's more rigid and lightweight body and sophisticated chassis design, featuring a fully independent suspension system with liquid filled bushings, front and rear; sport-tuned electronic power steering with variable gear ratios; and powerful 4-channel anti-lock disc brakes with Electronic Brake Distribution and Hill Start Assist.

The interior of the 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback carries through on the modern, sophisticated and premium quality of the 10th-generation Civic lineup, with high-grade materials and finishes applied liberally throughout. In terms of packaging, the 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback delivers class-leading volume and cargo capacity, including a roomy interior (122.9 cu. ft.), best rear seat legroom (36.0 inches) and largest cargo carrying capacity in the competitive set.

Available on most trims (and standard on Sport Touring) will be the Honda Sensing™ suite of safety and driver-assistive technologies, which includes Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™), Forward Collision Warning (FCW) integrated with CMBS, Lane Keeping Assist (LKAS), Road Departure Mitigation (RDM), Lane Departure Warning integrated with RDM and Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow. Other available features include Honda Display Audio with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ (EX and above trims), heated front seats and heated side mirrors, power driver and front-passenger seats, remote engine start and more.

The Civic Hatchback's all-new Sport Touring grade makes Honda Sensing™, Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ and LED headlights as standard equipment, while adding heated rear seats and other features.

The Civic Hatchback will target top-class safety ratings – an NCAP 5-star Overall Vehicle Score and an IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK rating with a GOOD rating in all crash test modes and a SUPERIOR rating in frontal crash prevention, when equipped with Honda Sensing.

The 2017 Civic Hatchback was developed jointly by Honda R&D teams in Europe and Japan and will be manufactured exclusively by Honda of the UK Manufacturing in its Swindon, UK plant.

Honda will probably release the pricing closer to the hatchback's release this fall but it'll probably cost a bit more than the coupe. car and driver thinks it could cost $1500 more than the 2016 Civic coupe and that model starts at $19,885.

That's a decent increase in price. One thing that might help is look at pricing of similar hatches. The Focus and even the upcoming Chevy Cruze hatch, but I don't think many here would even go for the Cruze, the Ford however... that will get some attention.

It's not really too much of a price increase for the hatchback considering how much more cargo space you'll be getting and the hatch's association with the Type R. Also, it'll be the first civic hatch to reach NA in a while so Honda probably assumes that people will want it even with the price increase.

Not too bad IMO. Were you hoping to see it cost the same as the sedan?

I definitely expected a price increase over the coupe/sedan. Wasn't expecting them to estimate $1500 over though... Was thinking maybe closer to like $600, closer to how other hatches are priced over their sedan counterparts. BUT, it does come with the added 1.5T across the lineup, larger wheels across the lineup, etc etc... it might even have additional features on lower trims we won't know about until the official features list comes out.

Please remember that all hatchbacks will have the turbo engine so there should be an increase based on trim and content.
