In Edmunds.com, “the Civic’s driving performance is top-notch”. 2019 Honda Civic Hatchback specs dig deep to provide a spirited ride whether you’re changing lanes on the highway or swinging through the city, and a wide selection of performance features work tirelessly to provide track-like control and command:
Driver’s seeking a sharp hatchback able to unite vibrant performance with eco-friendly driving should look no further.
The Honda Civic Hatchback prioritizes performance from the inside out, so the body is just as compelling as the powertrain. Every arch and angle points forward, an aggressively sloped back end provides a sense of momentum even at standstill, and a wide stance suggests sporty performance.
Standard and available body features include a unique rear hatch window, underbody spoiler kit, and center-mounted, dual outlet exhaust. The available Honda Factory Performance (HFP) package celebrates the nameplate’s racing heritage with:
Front Underbody Spoiler
Rear Underbody Spoiler
Side Underbody Spoilers
HFP Side Badge
HFP Rear Badge
Drilled Brake Rotors – Front/Rear
17-inch Black Alloy Wheels
Black Wheel Lug Nut Set
The 1.5L in-line 4-cylinder Honda Civic Hatchback engine boasts a single-scroll turbocharger with 16.5 PSI boost pressure and computer-controlled direct injection, so you can expect:
Up to 174 hp and 162 lb-ft of torque with the Standard LX.
Up to 180 hp and 177 lb-ft of torque with Sport Models
Up to 180 hp and 162 lb-ft of torque with Sport Touring Models
Edmunds.com leveled serious praise, noting that: “The 1.5-liter turbocharged engine has power everywhere in its rpm range.” They measured it making an “outstanding” zero to 60 mph time of 6.7 seconds.
If you need further proof of how much energy those specs provide, feel free to compare the Honda Civic Hatchback’s standard output against that of rival models:
Mazda3 Hatchback: Up to 155 hp and 150 lb-ft of torque as standard.
Toyota Corolla Hatchback: Up to 168 hp and 155 lb-ft of torque as standard.
Even harnessing that much power beneath the hood, the Honda Civic Hatchback provides a staggeringly efficient drive thanks to one of two state of the art transmission systems.
6-Speed Manual Transmission: Made to set your clutch foot tapping, the manual’s low internal friction and close-ratio gears offer precision shifting and outstanding acceleration.
Continuously Variable Transmission (LL-CVT): Constantly adjusts gear ratios along a belt instead of numbered gears for seamless performance. Dual-Mode Paddle Shifters are available with the Sport and standard with the Sport Touring.
All told, expect to make:
Up to an EPA rated 31 mpg in the city and 40 mpg on the highway with Continuously Variable Transmission*.
Up to an EPA rated 29 mpg in the city and 38 mpg* on the highway with 6-speed manual.
It takes more than expressive and refined power to deliver a first-class ride. The team at Honda understand that, which is why the Honda Civic Hatchback brings a string of performance features as standard across all models:
MacPherson Strut Front & Multi-Link Rear Suspension
Variable Ratio Electric Power-Assisted Rack-and-Pinion Steering (EPS)
Power-Assisted Ventilated Front Disc/Solid Rear Disc Brakes
They help iron out your drive, improve responsiveness, and provide reliable stopping power.
The Honda Civic Hatchback places plenty of focus on safety, and many of its active safety features are just as good at sharpening up your ride as they are at keeping you protected.
Select features fitted as standard across all trims include:
Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with Traction Control
Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS)
Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD)
Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)
