A Most Snazzy Hatch

THE AUTO CHANNEL
The 2022 Honda Civic Sport Touring Hatchback prances onto the hatchback stage with a cool look and adorned by a righteous amount of bells and whistles. The fluidic exterior lines serve up two favorable elements: first, a clean, uncluttered look, and secondly, a noticeable reduction in road and wind noise usually found in much more expensive vehicles.
Those stylish qualities are also found in the interior from the grid covered a/c vents...
to the Sport Touring’s powered leather trimmed seats....
to the instantly readable 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster...
to the 9-inch color touchscreen for infotainment...
and a cell phone charging platform that is much easier to use than convoluted shelves found in many vehicles.
This Civic is powered by a healthy turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine with 180 horsepower making 177 lb-ft of torque and at the same time can net up to 36 mpg combined. The continuously variable transmission (CVT) contributes to a smooth, spirited driving experience, assisted by:
MacPherson Strut Front Suspension
Multi-Link Rear Suspension
Variable Ratio Electric Power-Assisted Rack-and-Pinion Steering (EPS)
Front and Rear Stabilizer Bars
This Civic hatchback (like all Hondas) has useful practicality with 24.5 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seat, and expandable to 46.2 cu-ft of space if needed.
Whether you are Le Mans -ing some country roads, or cruising on a freeway listening to your favorite tunes on its bold Bose sound system, this snazzy Civic with a lengthy name (Civic Hatchback Sport Touring) is bound to please.*MSRP excluding tax, license, registration, $1,015 destination charge and accessories.
