If you wanted a fun manual hatchback for your daily commute but didn’t need a performance car like a Focus ST or GTI, there was really only one option: the Mazda3. Honda will now get a piece of the action with the all new Civic hatchback.
The Mazda3 should be a little worried. That’s because the new Honda Civic happens to finally be good again, and this morning Honda unveiled what is undoubtedly the best version of it yet: the 2017 Civic Hatchback. It can be had with a turbo. And a manual!
The Geneva Motor Show is still a few days away, but it looks as if we’ve gotten an early peek at the Honda Civic Hatchback concept slated to debut there. While the 2017 production version that the concept teases likely won’t be as sporty or elaborate, this car looks ready to tear up some asphalt.
