2017 Honda Civic Hatchback Sport-Touring

The 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback Sports Touring can certainly be love at the first sight for many car drivers and its guests. It is as much more unusual as it is traditional and perhaps this is what makes so many people bewitched and charmed by this vehicle, especially after they find out all about its numerous advantages and value you received on this attractive model. This civic is priced with value and economy in mind, but not sacrificing beauty and style. I was surprised when I saw it for the first time, is it really a civic? it looks so stylish and sporty, it is small and compact, but who doesn’t believe than most beautiful things come in a small size. And to complete my good impression of this  Civic Hatchback Sport-Touring I loved that car buyers can get a beautiful new car for only $19,900, great value!

There are some features and details that are in my wishlist for this civic, but considering the price I think that I am getting much more than what I expected.  I would like more manual buttons, like the audio in the dashboard is very digital, but one just need to get used to it, and it is easy and fun to control.  It is fun to drive, especially this cool red civic I am driving is so attractive from the outside. The inside is also very nice, but the outside has a killer look!

Honda History

The company was founded in 1946 in Japan. I started firstly producing motorcycles. 20 years later it had already become the world`s largest motorcycle manufacturer.

The first Honda car, the Honda T360, was released in 1963 but surprisingly it was not popular at all. The sales were low in Japan as much as in the USA and other countries. However, Honda was always famous for knowing what their aim is and the way to achieve it. Finally in 1973, Honda presented its first generation of the Honda Civic, which achieved records of sales all around the world, still today the Civic is best-seller

Engine and performance

The new 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback Sports Touring was born to save fuel. As a matter of fact, back in 1973, the first generation of Honda Civic was incredibly popular because of its great fuel economy, in contrast with the constantly growing prices for gasoline. Nowadays, our motivation to save fuel is a little different: we want to save but we also don`t want to damage the environment, we care about ecology, but whatever reason we have to buy this kind of car, Honda Civic will certainly make you happy with both, fuel economy and environment.

In terms of power, 180 HP is not bad for a compact light car like this one. The turbo engine with 1.5 Litters will make you happy on the city and one regular highways, just don’t go to the non-speed-limit Autobahn highway in Germany, there you might need some extra power.

  • 180-hp 1.5 L turbocharged engine (Sport, Sports Touring)
  • Paddle shifters (Sport with CVT, Sports Touring)
  • 6-speed manual transmission (LX, Sport)

Here is where I mostly love the Civic. Beautiful, stylish, with lots of value, for approximate $19,000, that is great! I am sure that most car buyers would love this price, especially those who are trying to save, but by saving don’t want to sacrifice on beauty and style.

Trying to be very objective, I can say that the 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback Sport Touring is a great buy.
