The New Civic Hatchback

2017 Honda Civic Hatchback: (Hatch)Back and Better than Ever

If you’re like a lot of people, the first thing you think of when you think of a Civic Hatchback is that sporty looking little number from the 90’s zipping around fastly and furiously in those movies back in the day.

Hey, remember me?

Honda is relaunching the Civic hatchback with a new look, an evolved version of the old school hatchback that were so popular around the turn of the century.  Edgy and exciting, the look of this car is only the beginning.  A sleek, spacious, and adaptable interior, and sporty and quick turbo charged engine, the new Civic hatchback is beyond anything you’ve seen before.
