Honda introduced the eleventh generation Honda hatchback. This time we are not talking about the global, but about the local version for the Japanese market, the “live” sales of which will begin on September 3. The cost of new items will be at least 3,190,000 yen or $ 29,100 at the current exchange rate.
Recall that the international premiere of the new Honda Civic took place in June. Then it became known that the hatchback received the same wheelbase as the sedan (2735 mm), width (1801 mm) and height (1415 mm), but due to the reduced rear overhang it gave way to it in length by 124 mm (4530 mm ). In addition, he regained the traditional “luggage” windows in the C-pillars, which disappeared from the eighth generation of the model in 2005.
The fifth door of the 11th Civic hatchback has become composite. Reducing its weight made it possible to make the hinges more compact and increase the headroom for the rear passengers. At the same time, the trunk itself turned out to be even more spacious: 446 liters “grew” into 452 liters, and the opening expanded by another 40 mm.

Interior design and equipment of the new hatchback is completely identical to the sedan. In the “base” he has the usual analog “tidy”, and in the “top” – a fully digital instrument cluster, located on a 10.2-inch display. The media system in different configurations can have a screen of 7 or 9 inches.
In Japan, the new Civic will be offered with an uncontested 1.5-liter turbo engine with a capacity of 182 horsepower. It is combined with either a six-speed “mechanics” or with a variator that simulates seven fixed gears in sport mode. Hybrid e: HEV and hot Civic Type R will go on sale in 2022.
