honda's new civic appears to be an enticing package in hatchback form, as this new body style has more cargo space than the sedan and offers a manual transmission on certain models. we now have pricing for the slightly more practical civic, and it starts at $23,915 for the base lx model and ranges up to $30,415 for the sport touring. those price are between $1000 and $1900 higher than the equivalent sedan models, which are only available with an automatic transmission.
the hatchback comes with the same two engine options as the sedan, either a 2.0-liter inline-four or a turbocharged 1.5-liter inline-four, and comes standard with a continuously variable automatic transmission. the naturally aspirated 158-hp engine comes on the lx and sport ($25,115), and on the latter it offers a six-speed manual transmission as a no-cost option. the more powerful 180-hp turbocharged engine comes standard on the ex-l hatch ($27,615) with a cvt and is also standard on the loaded sport touring ($30,415). honda offers a manual with this engine, too, as it's a no-cost option on the sport touring with the 1.5t.
apart from the available manual and the price premium, another key difference between the hatchback lineup and the sedan lineup is that the hatchback offers an ex-l trim with leather upholstery. the sedan is available as an ex with cloth seats, meaning you have to step up to the top touring trim to get the upgraded upholstery.
honda says the civic hatchback is arriving at u.s. dealerships starting this week.
