What the Critics Say

One more tidbit: The new Civic Hatchback will be assembled in Greensburg, Indiana. We’re all for more U.S.-market cars being built in the U.S., and it also gives Honda better ability to change its model mix depending on which body style proves more popular. Overall, we think the new 2022 Honda Civic Hatchback is a good-looking car featuring ideas well above its entry-level station.” — MotorTrend
The hatchback roofline is a gentler slope than the Civic hatchbacks of old. Honda says it was “inspired by the coupe-like profile of European sportbacks,” and it shows. It makes compact hatch rivals like the VW Golf and Hyundai Veloster look boxy” — Kelley Blue Book

Honda Civic Hatchback Performance

Sport-Focused Performance

Equally as athletic as it is attractive, Honda engineers spent countless hours infusing the Civic Hatchback with agile handling characteristics to complement its responsive powertrain options. Standard power comes in the form of a 158-horsepower 2.0-liter DOHC i-VTEC® 4-cylinder engine paired to a CVT transmission. For even more muscle, drivers can step up to an available 1.5-liter turbocharged and intercooled DOHC VTEC® 4-cylinder engine and a short-throw 6-speed manual transmission. 4.9 inches shorter in length than its sedan sibling, the Civic Hatchback also delivers responsive handling thanks to a lightweight composite hatch and wider rear track. Its reimagined body structure has resulted in a 19-percent increase in torsional rigidity compared to the prior model. If you’re craving practicality combined with a rewarding experience behind the wheel, it’s hard to ignore the dynamic Honda Civic Hatchback.
