Had a chance to drive a 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback with the 1.5T a couple weeks ago. As much as I am not a fan of its exterior looks, the interior is pretty good. Drivetrain wise, I'm really impressed. The car handles really well, and even with the CVT, I'm quite blown away by how fast it is. C/D rates it as 0-60mph at 6.9s. That's almost as fast as my manual Accord (6.6s) -- but at 3000ft elevation in Calgary, I wouldn't be surprised it's even faster.

 

Definitely a great compact car (Y)

Hey the exterior is great - also the fuel economy is impressive.

Lol yeah, the fuel economy actually beats the rated fuel economy according to a lot of people.

Do you guys honestly use the volume knob? I have one, but I only use the buttons on my steering wheel.

How's the Utility room in the Hatchback? Basically Honda got rid of the Sedan altogether and now its Fastback, Hatchback and Coupe.

I don't - I'd be more concerned if they made the seat heating controls to the touchscreen like the MDX - makes it difference if the passengers adjusting volume however.

exactly

 

also sometimes it just feels better to turn it up to 10 with a knob
