Honda Civic Hatchback & Honda Civic Hatchback Modulo – BIMS 2017
Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.
Priced at 1.169 million baht.
Following its launch earlier this month, the all-new Honda Civic hatchback was showcased at the Bangkok International Motor Show 2017. Available only in a single 1.5L Turbo variant, it’s priced at 1.169 million baht.
The new Civic hatchback stands out as a sportier but less practical version of the Civic 4-door sedan already on sale. It shares the same width and wheelbase as the 4-door sedan, but is 112 mm shorter in overall length and 20 mm taller. The hatchback measures 4,518 mm long, 1,798 mm wide, 1,435 mm tall and has a wheelbase of 2,700 mm. It features LED headlights with daytime running lights (DRLs), a twin spoiler setup at the back, LED taillamps, and dual tone 17-inch alloy wheels.
The hatchback gets an all-black interior with leather upholstery, power operated driver and passenger seats, dual-zone climate control, a digital instrument panel, 7-inch touchscreen system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, reverse parking camera, steering-mounted paddle shifters, multi-function steering wheel, Honda’s smart key system, cruise control, and 60:40 split-folding rear seats.
The 1.5L Turbo 4-cyl engine produces 173 PS at 5,500 rpm and 220 Nm of torque from 1,700 to 5,500 rpm. It is paired with an Earthdreams CVT that sends power to the front wheels.
