Is the Honda Civic Hatchback Right For You? 

For drivers considering obtaining a compact hatchback car, the 2021 Honda Civic hatchback is among the top options.

Honda manufactures Civics in Mexico, Japan, and in the United States. Civic models have a history dating back to 1973, and 2021 introduces the 11th generation of Honda’s compact car.

The 2021 Honda Civics come in two body types, a four-door hatchback or a four-door sedan. There used to be a third body style, but Honda nixed the coupe. Although there is overlap in what features are offered among the body styles and trims available, some of the features vary. In this article, we’ll take a closer look at the options for the Civic hatchback.

Four trim levels are available for hatchback Civics, including the LX, EX, Sport, and Sport Touring models. The hatchback model also has a performance-oriented trim, the Type-R, which is the strongest of all, featuring a 306-horsepower engine.

All 2021 Honda Civics are front-wheel drive, as are many compact car rivals like the Toyota Corolla, Mazda3, Volkswagen Golf, and Hyundai Veloster. The Civic stands out for its pairing of athletic handling and precise steering with a comfortable ride. The 2021 Honda Civic is ranked No. 3 among 12 compact cars, just behind the 2020 Mazda3 and 2020 Volkswagen GTI. 

Read on to find out what else the 2021 Honda Civic hatchback model can offer you in its many different available trims.
