The all-new Honda Civic 5-door Hatchback boasts sporty and sophisticated design details with windswept lines on the sides, front, and back. A beehive grille offers a strong and sporty look, enhanced by sporty-designed headlights with LED daytime running lights, C-shaped LED rear lights, and the iconic eye-catching hatchback.

The all-new Honda Civic 5-door Hatchback is powered by a 1.5-liter DOHC VTEC TURBO engine and equipped with a new CVT, both developed under Honda's Earth Dreams Technology. The VTEC TURBO engine delivers 173 horsepower at 5,500 rpm and maximum torque of 220 Newton-meters at 1,700 to 5,500 rpm, with performance comparable to a 2.4-liter engine but with better fuel efficiency equivalent to a 1.8-liter engine.

In addition, a comprehensive range of advanced equipment includes a 7-inch Advanced Display Audio with support for Bluetooth and a USB connection which is also compatible with Apple CarPlay (compatible with some smartphones). A TFT Meter with Multi-information Display allows various features and content to be displayed. The Engine Remote Start takes the convenience factor to a new level, as it allows you to start the engine from an extended range and preheat or precool the cabin before every journey.

Advanced safety technologies to ensure safer and more secure driving pleasure include a Multi-angle Rearview Camera, Electric Parking Brake, Auto Brake Hold, Emergency Stop Signal (ESS), Walk Away Auto Lock, plus many more features.
