A Closer Look at the 2017 Civic Hatchback in San Antonio

September 19th, 2016 by

After a release like last year’s Civic, it’s hard to imagine that anything could beat it. The Civic has a reputation for being a sophisticated, safe vehicle that is not just reliable, but also powerful. The 2017 model year Hondas are no different in surprising us and shocking the competition – especially with the anticipated arrival for the 2017 Civic Hatchback in San Antonio! If you haven’t heard about it, let Fernandez Honda tell you what we know!

So where do we start? Well, let’s start by a quote from Jeff Conrad, senior vice president and general manager of the Honda Division of American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “The Civic Hatch has been a staple for Honda in Europe, but has long been the forbidden fruit for Honda fans in the U.S. Now, we’re bringing this sporty, stylish and versatile Civic Hatchback to North America, as we amp up the performance of our incredible Civic lineup with each new Civic model.”

It’s not forbidden any longer for all of you U.S. citizens! The Civic Hatch styling is European-inspired and a head-turner, for sure, with 5-doors. It will be available in 5 different trims (LX, Sport, EX, EX-L and Sport Touring) with a 1.5L 4-cylinder engine with a 174 horsepower. But it’s not just a beautiful, powerful car you’re getting, it’s a fuel efficient one, too! The anticipated EPA-rated fuel economy is 31 MPG city, 40 highway and 34 combined*! So you can have your cake and eat it too with this new Civic.

The Honda Sensing suite is also available on this new hatchback and includes lane keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, forward-collision warning, and automated braking). The Honda Sensing safety suite is truly revolutionary in the car world and even though the Civic hatchback hasn’t been tested, we can expect top safety ratings in the next year. When you get the latest and greatest with Honda, you’re signing up for the most advanced safety features, and sometimes that makes all the difference.

Sleek European styling, a powerful engine, top safety features and incredible fuel economy… What can the 2017 Civic Hatchback in San Antonio not do?
