What makes Civic the retail best-selling passenger car over the past three years? In the case of the 2020 Honda Civic Hatchback, the answer is fairly simple: turbocharged performance, a striking design concept, advanced tech features, and a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)*—offered at a competitive MSRP that won’t break the bank.
The 2020 Civic Hatchback doesn’t just look like a track-ready hot hatch, it also performs like one. Every Civic Hatchback comes standard equipped with a turbocharged in-line 4-cylinder and Montana drivers have the choice between a continuously variable transmission (174 hp) or available 6-speed manual (180 hp) with dual-mode paddle shifters. No matter which configuration you choose, every stoplight becomes a starting line.
Its sophisticated suspension system consists of front and rear stabilizer bars, a MacPherson strut front, and a multi-link rear suspension, helping you carve corners and smooth out uneven surfaces. Meanwhile, Civic Hatchback’s variable ratio electric power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering (EPS) not only promotes better fuel economy but it also helps you feel more connected to the road.
If the Civic Hatchback’s performance doesn’t turn heads on Montana roadways its styling sure will. An imposing presence begins with a wide, athletic stance and sharp body lines arching across its profile. LED daytime running lights, a piano-black grille, black mesh fascia inserts, and C-shaped LED taillights round out this hot hatch design.
For the brash and bold, car shoppers can opt for the Sport or Sport Touring trim level, which features a reimagined “wing” grille crossbar, headlights with a new blackout treatment, updated fog light housings, 18-inch alloy wheels, and a dual-outlet exhaust.
Inside, Sport and Sport Touring models see more exciting updates ranging from tactile to tech. The Civic Hatchback Sport adds new seat upholstery and an embossed dashboard trim with a geometrical pattern, while the Civic Hatchback Sport Touring adds a leather-trimmed interior and an exclusive brushed black dash treatment. New tech features on board Sport models include an upgraded 7-inch touchscreen Display Audio system with eight speakers, Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration, pushbutton ignition (CVT), keyless entry, and remote start (CVT).
Did we happen to mention even the 2020 Honda Civic Hatchback LX (base model) comes standard equipped with a 60/40 split fold-down rear seatback for multiple interior configurations, the Honda Sensing® suite of safety features and driver-assist technology, and fuel economy that ranks near the top of its class? If it sounds too good to be true stop into any Montana Honda Dealers location to see the 2020 Civic Hatchback in person.
