Honda holds Civic Hatchback September 2016 MSRP for the new year

With last week’s official posting of 2017 Honda Hatchback and EPA fuel efficiency results, I find Honda Civic Hatchback to be surprisingly affordable. Honda will hold Civic Hatchback's September 2016 estimated MSRP for the new year. Cool!

After driving Honda’s first turbocharged 5-door Civic Sport Hatchback on the streets of San Francisco, California, I declared this Honda Civic to be the most powerful, refined and road worthy offering in the mark’s 44 year history -- not much of a stretch.

Last year with the late arrival of the manufactured in the U.K. hatchback, Civic set an all-time annual sales record with 366,927 units sold. -- that’s a lot of Civics.

Honda holds Civic Hatchback’s September 2016 MSRP

The first month of 2017 will not bring a price increase for Honda’s latest Civic offering. With a beginning MSRP of $19,700, this not so basic -- 6 speed manually shifted and turbocharged 5-door hatchback comes to market claims a very respectable 174 horsepower and 162 lb-ft torque. For those that wish to lose the shifter, a CVT option is available throughout the trim range. Interested in other Honda developments? Check this out.

The icing on the cake for this Honda fan is the E.P.A. stated 30 city and 39 highway MPG for a combined 33 MPG - the highest fuel efficiency in the segment. I also enjoy the new found refinement and utility of Honda’s latest Civic hatchback offering.
