Honda Civic Sedan vs. Honda Civic Hatchback—Performance

Honda Civic Sedan vs. Honda Civic Hatchback—Performance

While each vehicle provides you with a beefy 158-horsepower 2-liter 4-cylinder engine, there is a significant difference in available performance. The Civic Hatchback gives you a choice between a continuously variable transmission (CVT) or a 6-speed manual transmission. The manual transmission gives you complete control over how your Civic Hatchback shifts, allowing for a more driver-centric experience. Meanwhile, on the Civic Sedan, a CVT is the only option. However, one drawback of the manual transmission on the Civic Hatchback is that the fuel economy is slightly worse at 26 city / 36 highway, while the Civic Sedan boasts 30 city / 37 highway. While it's not that big of a difference, it is still worth considering when choosing between these two vehicles.
