    With the 2025 refresh including the very desirable hybrid drivetrain just months away, let us look back and highlight some of what makes the current 11th gen Civic so desirable today.

    2024 Honda Civic Hatch


    The 11th gen Civic sedan and hatch were all-new for 2022 and what they brought was an attractive exterior and interior design, competitive performance, decent fuel efficiency for a non-hybrid drivetrain, best in class safety features, and the very latest infotainment technology.

    The Civic Hatch is a Euro-inspired 5-door with a coupe-like silhouette and short rear overhangs. Built on the same platform as the Civic Sedan, the new Civic Hatch features the same low cowl with excellent visibility.

    Up front, the Civic Hatch’s honeycomb grille with the wide-set LED headlamps looks excellent.

    The Civic hatch uses the same 107.7” wheelbase and overall platform as the award-winning Civic sedan which is a great start. To eliminate the need for roof molding and achieve Hatchback’s clean roof line, Honda has employed the same laser brazing technology used on the Sedan’s roof seams. Additionally, Hatchback uses a new lightweight resin hatch, which allows the hinges to be moved down and to the side for a smooth, clean coupe-like profile.

    The 11th-gen Civic benefits from a 0.5-inch wider track while maintaining the same overall width as the 10th-gen car.

    The Hatchback’s windshield A-pillars have been pulled rearward by almost 2 inches to improve visibility. Likewise, Hatchback’s hood is an inch lower where it meets the pillars, lowering the fender line, creating a “thin” appearance that makes the wheels look larger.

    A modern and dare I say uniquely exciting interior is bound to carry forward through the refresh.​

    Inside, the Civic Hatch’s clean interior delivers on the very latest Honda user experience plus its best-in-class rear seat legroom and an open and airy greenhouse for improved visibility for all occupants.

    Highlighting the dash is Civics’ metal honeycomb horizontal layout that conceal the air vents. It also includes standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, plus an available 10.2” digital instrument display and a 9-inch central touchscreen with an available Bose Centerpoint 2 sound system.

    The Hatchback LX trim features a black cloth interior, while Sport has a combination synthetic leather and fabric seat in Sport Black, which includes a black headliner. EX-L trims feature perforated leather upholstery in either black or gray, while Sport Touring’s Sport Black and Sport Gray perforated leather both include a black headliner. I wish more manufacturers would more to black headliners.

    A best-in-class cargo capacity behind the rear seats just add to the hatch panache.

    99.0 cu. ft. of passenger volume and 24.2 cu. ft. of cargo volume with a wide cargo opening is a huge draw.​

    Underpinning the 11th-generation Civic is an enhanced structure and stronger body, with multiple improvements to the platform and body yielding increased stiffness and rigidity that benefit Civics’ world-class and segment-leading ride, handling, and crash performance.

    2024 Honda Civic Hatch Safety

    The Civic Hatch includes all the safety updates made to the Sedan, including the Honda Sensing suite of safety and driver assistive technologies, improved with a new single-camera system. Honda Sensing adds standard Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR), Traffic Jam Assist (TJA), and provides a more natural feel to functions such as Adaptive Cruise Control and Lane Keeping Assist.

    All-new multiple airbag designs include the world’s first driver’s airbag specifically designed to reduce head rotation in a collision. The new airbag uses an innovative donut-shaped structure to cradle and hold the head, mitigating rotation and reducing the likelihood of brain injury. On the passenger side, a new three-chamber airbag design achieves a similar result. The three chambers inflate separately, with the two outer chambers that extend above the main chamber designed to cradle the head and control rotation.

    Along with the two next-generation airbags, Civic benefits from additional standard airbag technology with first-time applications of knee and rear side-impact airbags.

    All-in, this is a pre-refresh overview. Expect larger std. displays, even tighter Google integration with improved OTA update capabilities, and of course the highly anticipated and competitive efficiency addition with the two-motor hybrid drivetrain straight out of the Accord/CR-V hybrids although probably detuned for a bit more efficiency. <-- I hope anyway. ;)

    Softer than the edgy cool 10th gen but still attractive nonetheless.​
