The style deviates from what is the Honda Civic is known for. Its front has a more rugged look, with big air intakes, sharper lines and LED headlamps on the front. There is improved visibility to the rear spoiler, an improvement from the critics of the 2016 model. The 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback looks sport in all ways, featuring its low stance, sharp angles and a sleek, low front.

Civic fans who are looking for roomier ride will not be disappointed. According to Carbuyer, it is bigger by 30mm width and 130mm length. However, headroom is a little lower to achieve the sportier look.

It will debut just days before the 2016 New York International Auto Show. Durham Region reported that the variant will be launched sometime later this year. It will first be seen in North America at the NY International Auto Show.

What sets it apart and builds up the current lineup of Honda is its sporty appearance and Honda Turbo engine technology. The Honda hatchback makes use of the five-door look alongside some premium interior and safety features.
