New Honda 2022 Honda Civic Hatchback for Sale in North Attleboro, MA
Trims, Powertrains, and Fuel Economy
The four trim levels for the Civic Hatchback are the LX, Sport, EX-L, and Sport Touring. The LX and Sport have a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 158 horsepower and 138 lb.-ft. of torque, and the EX-L and Sport Touring get a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 180 hp and 177 lb.-ft. of torque. The LX and EX-L are made only with a continuously variable transmission (CVT); the Sport and Sport Touring will get a standard six-speed manual unless the buyer opts for the available CVT (with paddle shifters). All trims are front-wheel drive. The EPA states that the LX returns an estimated 30 mpg in city driving and 38 mpg on the highway, and the EX-L achieves 31 city/39 highway. The manual Sport is rated for 26 city/36 highway, while the manual Sport Touring gets 28 city/37 highway. With the CVT, the Sport pulls off 29 city/37 highway, and the CVT Sport Touring is an iota different at 30 city/37 highway.
The LX kicks off the redesigned Civic Hatchback’s lineup with some nice standard features, such as automatic cabin temperature control, auto on/off LED headlights, push-button ignition, a 7-inch driver information display, a reversible side-pull cargo cover, a 60/40-split fold-down rear seatback, and HondaLink remote services. For staying connected and entertained, the 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system bundles smartphone integration (Android Auto and Apple CarPlay), Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming, SMS text messaging, and a sound system with four speakers.
The Honda Sensing slate of driver-assist technologies increases the safety factor with collision mitigation braking, road departure mitigation, lane keeping assist, forward collision warning, lane departure warning, and traffic sign recognition; models with the CVT also get adaptive cruise control with low-speed follow and the debuting traffic jam assist. And while rearview cameras are found in every new car, the one in the Civic Hatchback LX is superior, showing multiple angles while displaying helpful dynamic guidelines. Automatic high beams are also included, along with a rear-seat reminder so that no child or pet is accidentally forgotten in the back row.
The Sport elevates its appearance with gloss-black exterior mirrors, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter knob, and special accelerator and brake pedals. Versions with the CVT will come with paddle shifters as well. This trim is also set up with Smart Entry with Walk-Away Auto Lock (an advanced keyless entry system that doesn’t require use of the key fob). It gets the same Honda Sensing package as the LX, and the infotainment system is identical in features but it gets four additional speakers.
The EX-L upgrades the automatic climate control to two zones and gets heated body-color exterior mirrors, leather seats (heated in the front row), a one-touch power moonroof with tilt, illuminated vanity mirrors, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, and a rear-seat center armrest with cup holders. A blind-spot monitor is added to its edition of Honda Sensing.
The extra-sharp Sport Touring brings back the sport pedals and adds dual exhaust, exterior mirrors with integrated turn-signal indicators, rain-sensing windshield wipers, LED fog lights, a 10.2-inch driver information display, a power front passenger’s seat, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a universal garage door opener, three USB charge ports, and wireless smartphone charging. CVT versions will have a rear cross-traffic monitor and low-speed braking control added to their Honda Sensing technology suite; both CVT and manual versions get parking sensors (front and rear). This top trim’s infotainment system also gets the royal treatment with a 9-inch touchscreen, navigation with voice recognition, wireless smartphone integration, a Bose sound system with a dozen speakers, SiriusXM satellite radio, and HD radio.
