Trims, Powertrain, and Fuel Economy

Your trim choices for the 2023 Honda Civic Hatchback are the Sport, EX-L, and Sport Touring. While the Sport gets a 158 hp 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, the EX-L and Sport Touring are boosted with a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder that makes 180 hp and 177 lb.-ft. of torque. The Sport and Sport Touring will delight driving purists with their standard six-speed manual transmission. The mid-grade EX-L is only made with a continuously variable transmission (CVT), which is optional for the other two trims. Front-wheel drive is the rule across the board.

As rated by the EPA’s official fuel economy estimates, the Sport with the manual tranny gets 26 mpg around town and 36 mpg on the highway. With the CVT, you can expect 29 city/27 highway. The CVT-only EX-L returns 31 city/39 highway. Meanwhile, the manual Sport Touring achieves 28 city/37 highway, but with the CVT, the return is 30 city/37 highway.


As mentioned, the Sport can be had with either a CVT or the purist’s choice: a six-speed manual transmission. Its standard equipment list includes push-button ignition, automatic climate control, LED headlights, sport pedals, Smart Entry with Walk Away Auto Lock (Honda’s proximity entry and auto-locking system), a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, and a 60/40-split fold-down rear seatback, which opens up the most cargo-carrying possibilities. The 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system manages smartphone integration (Android Auto and Apple CarPlay), Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming, SMS text messaging, and a sound system with eight speakers. Passengers can plug in to the USB data and charge ports as well as a 12V power outlet. For added safety and driver confidence, Honda Sensing comes standard, equipping the Sport trim with collision mitigation braking, road departure mitigation, adaptive cruise control with low-speed follow, lane keeping assist, forward collision warning, lane departure warning, traffic jam assist, traffic sign recognition, and automatic high beams.


The EX-L deletes the sport pedals but upgrades to leather seats that are heated in the front row; the driver’s seat is power-adjustable. This trim’s other noteworthy attributes are a moonroof, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated side mirrors, illuminated vanity mirrors, a front passenger seatback pocket, and a rear-seat center armrest with cupholders. A blind-spot monitor joins the slate of safety technologies.

Sport Touring

On this top-of-the-line Civic Hatchback’s exterior, you’ll notice LED fog lights and dual exhaust finishers. It also returns the sport pedals, along with the option for the manual transmission. Integrated turn-signal indicators make the heated exterior mirrors even more deluxe, while rain-sensing windshield wipers, wireless phone charging, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a sunglasses holder, a HomeLink universal garage door opener, and a power-adjustable front passenger’s seat increase convenience. The infotainment system moves up to a 9-inch version with voice recognition, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, HD radio, SiriusXM satellite radio, navigation, and a top-shelf 12-speaker Bose audio system with a subwoofer. The driver-assist technology suite is expanded with front and rear parking sensors, rear cross-traffic alert, and low-speed braking control.
