As before, the new Honda Civic 2017 returns with zesty fuel efficient engines, satisfying handling, spacious interior accommodations, advanced infotainment system, and tons of safety technologies. Once again, it’s a must-drive compact sedan. The Honda Civic USA release date should be expected sometime in the first half of 2017.
Early reviews for the Civic (2011-2015) were rather uninspiring, but even that didn’t deter Honda from continuing to make the Civic which had had a rather class-leading status before that. Even with its once revered status long gone, the Honda Civic redesign brought in significant changes that Honda hopes will rejuvenate it even the face of growing hostility from the ever-increasing newer and fresher rivals.
The 2017 Honda Civic takes pride in offering nifty technological features, premium and mature cabin, and edgy and upscale exterior looks. The engine compartment however lacks any rejuvenation and the model returns with two engines as before, with the most powerful being the turbocharged 1.5L four-cylinder engine rated at just 174 horsepower and 162 pounds-feet of torque.
The 2017 Honda Civic Si release date is expected in the spring of 2017 and rumors going round allege the vehicle will come fitted with a detuned version of the Civic Type R engine’s 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder engine. The mill is believed will be mated with a six-speed manual transmission system and will generate around 220 to 230 horsepower.
The 2017 Honda Civic hatchback, on the other hand, will probably be offered with different engines suited for different markets across the world. Rumors allege the hatchback will come equipped with a 2.0L four-cylinder engine mated to either a CVT or a six-speed manual. This combination will probably yield about 158 hp and 138 lbs. ft. of torque.
Similar to its predecessors, the 2017 Honda Civic interior is voluptuous, comfortable, and sporty. In fact, Honda says the Civic’s interior volume is best-in-class. You’ll probably find no reason to ditch it for the Honda Accord. The materials inside are premium and comfortable.
Inasmuch as the 2017 Honda Civic specs sound convincing, there are a couple of other vehicles in the segment that offer paralleling or better features depending on what you’re looking for. The Mazda 3 hatchback is one such vehicle. The newest model – the 2017 Mazda 3 release date is expected sometime mid-this year as a 2017 model with an MSRP starting from below $30,000.
Another potential rival to the Honda Civic is the Kia Forte. The newest model – the 2017 Kia Forte was recently unveiled during the 2016 Detroit auto show and, judging for the interior pictures seen, we should expect the Forte to come with lots of technology updates. Additionally, the Forte sedan gains a new S trim that will sit in between the Kia Forte EX and LX trims.
2017 Honda Civic Review of Trims
The five passenger 2017 Honda Civic sedan is available in five trims: Touring, EX, LX, EX-L, and EX-T. The Civic coupe, on the other end, is offered in Touring, EX-T, LX, LX-P, and EX-L. As already mentioned, both the 2017 Honda Civic Si and hatchback will be offered with different engines and specs relative to the regular Civic, and therefore it is necessary that separate reviews are offered.
