The Civic Hatchback comes standard with a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder. This can be had with either a CVT or six-speed manual transmission. Horsepower and torque numbers vary depending on the trim and transmission. On most models with the CVT, this engine delivers 174 horsepower and 162 lb-ft of torque.
Of course, the Civic Hatchback stands apart visually from its sedan and coupe counterparts. On the base LX trim you’ll find that it comes standard with 16-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlights, daytime running lights, and an expanded view driver side mirror. Other trims add features like 18-inch alloy wheels, a center-outlet dual exhaust, aerodynamic bodywork, and a sunroof.
