Engine Power

This mighty engine is enhanced by direct fuel injection and a drive-by-wire throttle system, and it comes mated to either a standard 6-speed manual transmission or an available continuously variable transmission.

Performance Boosters

Performance-enhancing extras offered onboard the Honda Civic Hatchback are plentiful and aimed at further boosting the car’s incredible drivability. They include features such as:


2017 Honda Civic Hatchback Econ Assist Button

Eco Assist System: The Civic Hatchback’s standard Eco Assist System is designed to help improve the vehicle’s fuel economy by adjusting engine, transmission, climate control, and cruise control performance. This system can be turned on or off by a simple press of the ECON button, which is located behind the shift lever.

Straight Driving Assist: The Civic Hatchback’s Straight Driving Assist system helps reduce the need for driver steering effort when traveling on slopes or crowned roads. When the system senses that steering effort is being applied in one of these situations, motor assist is supplied by the car’s electric power steering system to help keep the vehicle traveling in its desired course, requiring only the same amount of driver steering muscle that is needed on a flat surface.

Hill Start Assist: Hill Start Assist, which also comes standard on each Civic Hatchback model, helps keep the car from rolling backward when accelerating from a stopped position on a hill or incline. This feature automatically goes into action when the car detects an incline and is completely stopped in a forward gear while facing uphill or in a reverse gear while facing downhill.

Automatic Brake Hold: Also a standard feature, Automatic Brake Hold is designed to retain brake pressure when the Civic Hatchback comes to a stop, keeping the car in a stopped position until the throttle pedal is pressed. This keeps the driver from having to constantly keep a foot on the brake pedal to maintain a stopped position at traffic lights, in heavy traffic situations, etc.

Agile Handling Assist: Another standard feature for the Civic Hatchback trims is Agile Handling Assist, which uses selective braking to improve cornering ability and initial turning response. This feature helps reduce dangerous understeer and also promotes confident handling of the Civic Hatchback.

Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control: The Civic Hatchback’s Vehicle Stability Assist is an electronic stability control system that works with the car’s drive-by-wire throttle system and four-channel anti-lock braking system to boost control during acceleration, braking, cornering, and sudden maneuvering. Vehicle Stability Assist further provides the effect of limited-slip differential by sending brake force to any wheel that is slipping, thus redirecting driving force to the wheel that has more traction.
