You’ve already seen the 10th Gen Civic Hatchback prototype at the Geneva auto show and was probably hoping to see the production model at the New York Auto Show, well you may be a bit disappointed to hear that it’s still the concept model on display.
But the good news is Honda has confirmed today that the 2017 hatch will be hitting the U.S. market with their new 1.5-liter turbo-four engine under the bonnet and it’ll be paired with a six-speed manual transmission. For those of you who aren’t a fan of manual the hatch will have an optional continuously variable automatic transmission.
It’s not just the hatchback that’s getting a manual transmission, the 1.5L turbo and six-speed manual transmission combo will be making an appearance in every 2017 model year body style including the Civic Sedan and Coupe.
The new hatchback is scheduled to go on sale later this year; will you go auto or manual?
