2017 Honda Civic Hatchback Press Kit - Interior

As the latest model to join the 10th-generation Civic lineup, the all-new 2017 Civic Hatchback benefits from Honda's latest advances in spaciousness, smart design, comfortable fit and intuitive controls. Plus, its hatchback design gives it class-leading sedan-style passenger comfort coupled with added utility and versatility, making it an ideal fit for active lifestyles.

With 97.2 cubic feet of passenger cabin volume, the Civic Hatchback offers generous space and comfort. Class-leading forward visibility of 84.3 degrees is aided by ultra-thin A-pillars, and rear-seat passengers will appreciate front seats with a narrow upper profile (in the shoulder area) and compact headrests that lend the rear cabin a more open, airy feel.

The Civic Hatchback has a class-leading cargo capacity of 25.7 cubic feet (22.6 for Sport and Sport Touring) – spacious enough to easily accommodate several large golf bags. A low lift over height of just 26.7 inches and large tailgate opening help make loading easy. A clever side-mounted tonneau cover helps conceal belongings from view and can be positioned on either side of the cargo area as desired. All trims feature 60/40 split and folding rear seatbacks. Cargo capacity expands up to 46.2 cubic feet* with the rear seatbacks folded.

The Civic Hatchback brings an elevated level of comfort and convenience to an affordable, compact-class car, with numerous standard or optional premium features typically found in more expensive vehicles. The Civic Hatchback offers the latest in-vehicle connectivity and audio performance with a new generation of advanced technologies. Available features include a 7-inch capacitive touchscreen Display Audio interface with Android operating system, and an all-new Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System™ developed in cooperation with the experts at Garmin®. The Civic Hatchback's Display Audio system is compatible with the Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ platforms, giving customers seamless integration of key smartphone features and functions, including smartphone-powered GPS navigation and voice-controlled search capabilities.

Interior Design The new Civic Hatchback interior shares key styling cues with the Civic Sedan, blending a dynamic and wide layout with smoothly integrated technology features and-high quality materials. EX and above trims feature a full-color 7-inch Driver Information Interface (DII) display, and 7-inch color touchscreen Display Audio system with a clean and sleek appearance.

The Civic Hatchback has an open roomy feel with design features like sleekly styled front seatbacks that help give rear passengers a spacious, open feeling.

Interior Finish The Civic Hatchback's interior palette is sophisticated and coordinated and is offered in black or black/ivory color – fabric in the LX, Sport, and EX; leather in the EX-L Navi and Sport Touring. The Sport and Sport Touring models have a red-themed central display, carbon-look instrument panel accents, black headliner and sport/racing pedals; the Sport Touring models also has red-themed instrumentation.

Front Seats The front bucket seats are designed to provide welcoming support for a wide range of body types, along with secure lateral support for aggressive cornering. An available adjustable thigh support for the driver's seat offers 14.1 degrees of tilt for the 8-way power seat. To help improve the forward view and create a feeling of openness for rear seat passengers, the front seatbacks have a narrow upper profile and compact headrests. The Civic Hatchback seats feature fabric seating surfaces in LX, Sport and EX trims, with leather-trimmed seats in the EX-L Navi and Sport Touring trims, using perforated leather on select areas of the front seats.

The driver's seat in LX, Sport and EX models is manually adjustable for fore-and-aft, seatback angle and height adjustment. The EX-L Navi and Sport Touring feature power-operated versions of the same adjustments, along with an adjustable thigh support, for a total of 8-way power adjustability. The Sport Touring adds a front passenger seat with 4-way power adjustability. Heated front seats are standard in the EX, EX-L Navi and Sport Touring. Heating includes both the seat bottom cushions and front seatbacks (in previous Civics, just the seat bottom was heated). The 3-level front seat heater controls are positioned within easy reach, just below the climate control system controls.

Folding Rear Seats with Available 2-Level Heating The roomy second-row seating is designed for maximum comfort and versatility, with a folding seatback. The 60/40 split and folding design makes it easy to accommodate passengers or long cargo. Two-level adjustable rear heated outboard seat bottoms are standard in the Sport Touring model. Controls for the rear seat heaters are positioned within easy reach on the rear of the front center console.

Center Console

The Civic Hatchback's interior offers a range of convenient storage features for the driver and passengers. The center console is specially engineered to offer a sporty appearance coupled with the versatile usability you might expect in an SUV. With the prevalence of smartphones in most people's lives, the console is engineered around a "tech center" theme. Up front, there is a 2-tier smartphone tray with a wire management

 

An electronic parking brake replaces a conventional manual parking brake lever, freeing up more console space for a larger armrest and greater storage space. The main storage compartment is topped by a sliding, deeply padded armrest. A pair of cup holders are centrally located, and can accommodate large 42-ounce cups when the padded armrest is placed in the rearmost position. By sliding the adjustable cup holder rearward, there's space to accommodate even a large sports drink bottle. Inside the console, a small item tray slides fore and aft the full length of the console. With the cup holder removed, the console offers a class leading 7.2 liters of storage, enough to accommodate tablet computers and other large items.

Cargo Area The Civic Hatchback's large, useful cargo area is the key to the car's day-to-day versatility. A cargo capacity of up to 25.7 cubic feet with seats up is the largest in class. For even more cargo space, the split-folding 60/40 rear seatbacks can be easily folded down to open up a voluminous 46.2 cu. ft. cargo area. The wide and long (front to rear) opening makes loading easy. A clever side-mounted tonneau cover stays out of the way when not in use, and is reversible so it can be positioned on either side of the cabin. (See the Body & Exterior section for more information.)

Steering Wheel The steering wheel, leather-wrapped on EX-L Navi, Sport and Sport Touring trims, incorporates the most commonly used controls, allowing the driver to keep their hands on the wheel and their attention on the road. Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink® and audio system controls located on the left side of the steering wheel make it easy to scroll and select items that appear on the audio screen. Cruise control controls are on the right and Driver Information Interface (DII) controls are located on the left side. Models with Honda Sensing™ have LKAS and ACC controls located on the right side of the steering wheel as well. In all trims, the steering wheel offers manual tilt and telescopic adjustment.

CVT-equipped Sport and Sport Touring trims feature steering-wheel mounted paddle shifters to allow for a more spirited driving style when the driver desires.

Power Windows, Locks and Mirrors Power windows are standard equipment on all Civic Hatchback models and include auto-up and -down operation on the driver's and front passenger's windows. Power door locks and power mirrors are also standard equipment on all models. EX, EX-L Navi and Sport Touring models include heated exterior mirrors and Smart Entry.

One-Touch Power Moonroof with Tilt Feature EX, EX-L Navi and Sport Touring models have a one-touch power moonroof with tilt feature that will fully open or close with a single touch of a switch. (See the Body & Exterior section for more information.)

Climate Control Systems Like the Civic Sedan, the Civic Hatchback has a standard automatic climate control system. EX, EX-L Navi and Sport Touring trims include dual-zone operation, for the optimal comfort of both the driver and front-seat passenger. In addition to physical controls, the system incorporates climate control functions in the Display Audio touchscreen.

The new system features a refrigerant with a much lower GWP (Global Warming Potential). To help conserve energy, the system employs a new Variable Displacement Compressor (VDC). Unlike a conventional compressor which can only operate at 100-percent and must be switched on and off frequently to conserve fuel when the cooling load is relatively low, the VDC can vary its output based on the cooling needs, resulting in greater efficiency, reduced drag on the engine and smoother climate-control performance.

Sliding Sunvisors To provide more flexible shading from the sun, all Civic Hatchbacks come standard with sliding sunvisors with a 3.9-inch range of motion. In EX and above trims, the visors have illuminated vanity mirrors.

Meters The Civic Hatchback LX and Sport trims have analog instrumentation with a large tachometer, flanked by a coolant-temperature gauge on the left and fuel-level gauge on the right. A digital speedometer is positioned in the center of the tachometer. EX and above trims have a central thin-film transistor (TFT) Driver Information Interface (DII) color display that depicts an analog tachometer, digital speedometer and additional selectable information. The Sport Touring trim has a unique red meter theme.

The gauge package progressively illuminates to give the driver a welcoming feel upon entry. When the door is first opened, the instrument lighting illuminates and then brightens progressively to 100-percent illumination when the ignition is switched on. The illuminated instrument panel then comes alive, indicating that the car is ready to go. At the end of the drive, the instrument lighting dims progressively.

Driver Information Interface (DII)

The Civic Hatchback's instrument panel provides important vehicle information via a Driver Information Interface (DII) positioned centrally in the meter panel. Controls positioned on the right side of the steering wheel allow the driver to cycle the DII display through multiple screens of information from sources including LKAS, ACC and more, when equipped. The Maintenance Minder™ system alerts the driver to upcoming maintenance needs via the DII and should a fault occur with the vehicle, specific warning information will appear. The display indicates when to change the oil, air cleaner, transmission fluid, spark plugs or coolant, as well as when to rotate the tires.

Engine Immobilizer Complementing the remote entry system is a standard engine-immobilizer system. A special electronically coded key prevents the car from being started – even if a mechanical duplicate of the key is used. A transponder, built into the key, signals the immobilizer control unit that the key is genuine. If the car is hot-wired, or an unauthorized key is used, the engine will not start.

  • Smart Entry and Push Button Start (available)

  • Electric Parking Brake

Smart Entry and Push Button Start/Stop The 2017 Civic Hatchback offers the upscale convenience of Smart Entry and Push Button Start/Stop.

Remote Keyless Entry Remote keyless entry is standard equipment on all Civic Hatchback models. The wave key design (LX and Sport trims) has an integrated transmitter in the handle with lock, unlock, tailgate open and panic buttons.

Smart Entry Smart Entry allows the driver to approach, open and use the tailgate without using a key or pressing a button on the remote. With the remote in his or her possession, the driver simply presses the release button and opens the tailgate. As a safety and convenience feature, the Smart Entry system will not allow the transmitter fob to be locked in the interior of the Civic Hatchback.

Push Button Start/Stop In the Civic Hatchback EX and above, once the driver has opened the door and is seated, the driver simply pushes the START/STOP button positioned on the instrument panel while pressing the brake pedal to start the vehicle. Powertrain operation and certain electrical functions are ended when the START/STOP button is pressed again at the conclusion of the drive. For accessory mode, the driver simply presses the START/STOP button without pressing the brake pedal. The Civic Hatchback's START/STOP button features a pulsating light to help the driver more easily locate the button.

Auto On/Off Headlights All Civic Hatchback models feature auto-on/off headlights for greater convenience. The headlights are multi-reflector/projector-beam units on all models except the Sport Touring, which has auto-on/off LED headlights. All models feature dramatic LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL).

Auto-Dimming Rearview Mirror The EX-L Navi and Sport Touring models feature an electrochromic interior rearview mirror that automatically dims during nighttime driving to reduce glare from the headlights of following vehicles.

Electric Parking Brake (EPB) The Civic Hatchback's Electric Parking Brake makes using the parking brake easier and more comfortable and frees up precious center console space for storage and other functions. (See the Chassis section for more information.)

Hill Start Assist The Hill Start Assist function prevents the vehicle from rolling when stopped on an incline (See the Chassis section for more information.)

1-Cable Connection In the Civic Hatchback EX and above trims, compatible iPhones and Android (with Android Auto app.) phones loaded with the compatible HondaLink app can be connected to the 1.5-amp USB port with a single USB cable (provided with the phone), to display navigation information on the 7-inch Display Audio Touchscreen.

Apple CarPlay™ Civic Hatchback EX models and above offer standard Apple CarPlay compatibility. By connecting the iPhone to the car using the phone's USB cable (supplied with the phone) and the Civic Hatchback's 1.5-amp USB port, CarPlay features can be accessed. (Note that the CarPlay system will not work using the USB port located inside the center console.)

CarPlay takes the most popular functions and features of the user's compatible iPhone and puts them on the Civic Hatchback's Display Audio touchscreen and DII display, positioned in the instrument cluster. You can get directions, send and receive messages, listen to audio books and music, all in a way that allows you to stay more focused on the road.

CarPlay features Siri voice control and is specially designed for typical driving scenarios. It also works with the Civic Hatchback's controls – both on the audio touchscreen and the steering-wheel mounted controls, so you don't need to pick up your phone. A curated selection of available CarPlay Apps have been designed for use in the Civic Hatchback and are specially designed to minimize the potential for driver distraction.

CarPlay includes access to Apple Maps, which can provide turn-by-turn directions, traffic conditions, and estimated travel time. CarPlay can also predict where you most likely want to go using addresses from your email, text messages, contacts, and calendars.

CarPlay is compatible with iPhones that feature the small Lightning connector, not older iPhones with the larger 30-pin connector.

Android Auto™ Civic Hatchback EX models and above offer standard Android Auto™ compatibility. By connecting a compatible Android phone to the car using the phone's USB cable (supplied with the phone) and the Civic Hatchback's 1.5 amp USB port, the Android Auto platform is enabled.

Android Auto puts some of your phone's most useful Apps on the Civic Hatchback's audio display and DII, positioned in the instrument cluster. You can get directions, send and receive messages, listen to audio books and music, all without the need to pick up your phone. Android Auto works with the car's controls – both on the audio touchscreen and the steering-wheel mounted controls – so it's simple and intuitive to use.

Android Auto's voice control is specially designed for typical driving scenarios. A curated selection of available Android Auto Apps are designed for use in the Civic Hatchback, and are specially designed to minimize the potential for driver distraction.

Android includes access to Google Maps, which can provide turn-by-turn directions, live traffic conditions, lane guidance and more. CarPlay can also predict where you most likely want to go using addresses from your email, text messages, contacts, and calendars.

Android Auto is designed to work with Android phones running 5.0 (Lollipop) or higher.

HondaLink® The Display Audio system with next generation HondaLink that is standard in EX models and above allows the owner's digital lifestyle to seamlessly integrate with the car and provides access to a world of cloud-based information. The all-new application-based platform connects customers to online content both inside and outside the car. The connection between the system and the user's smartphone is made through the Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink® wireless interface. A HondaLink phone app provides convenient access for many services including location searches, local weather, messaging, Maintenance Minder alerts, service scheduling by phone, and access to the vehicle Owners Guide.

HondaLink Assist An additional feature on Civic Hatchback EX and above is HondaLink Assist, which can help request emergency assistance for drivers. If a compatible phone is paired through Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink®, there is a cellular connection and an airbag deployment sensor is triggered, the system is designed to automatically attempt to notify an operator, report the car's current location, and allow occupants to talk directly to the operator. The operator can then contact emergency services if needed.

Siri Eyes Free The Civic Hatchback EX and above trims integrate Apple's Siri Eyes Free mode imbedded in Apple CarPlay. Compatible iPhone® users will be able to operate Siri through familiar voice commands by pressing and holding the TALK button on the steering wheel for two seconds when their iPhone is paired via Bluetooth®7. Using Eyes Free mode, Siri takes hands-free functionality even further and helps to minimize the potential for distractions by keeping the iOS device's screen from lighting up.

Owners can direct Siri to perform a number of specific tasks while they keep their eyes on the road and their hands on the wheel. Capabilities include:

  • Send text messages and e-mails
  • Read incoming text messages and emails
  • Set up calendar entries, reminders, and alarms
  • Check the weather
  • Turn-by-turn voice navigation (when the audio system is set to Bluetooth® Audio or iPod mode)
  • Sports scores and stock quotes

Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink® The Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink® interface is designed to offer hands-free operation for many Bluetooth®-enabled mobile telephones. Standard on all Civic Hatchback models, the system wirelessly connects the driver's cell phone to the vehicle's audio system. This allows the driver to make or answer cell phone calls without removing hands from the steering wheel. The system is compatible with Bluetooth®-enabled cell phones that have the Hands Free Profile (HFP). A list of compatible phones can be found at handsfreelink.com or honda.com.

Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System with Voice Recognition and Honda HD Digital Traffic Standard on EX-L Navi and Sport Touring trims, the integrated Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System, developed in cooperation with Garmin, offers many improvements, including enhanced graphics, live search, speed limit display, customized vehicle icons, 3D buildings and terrain, and more. The system includes free map database updates for up to five years (initial purchase plus one yearly update each year for four years). The system includes the HD Digital Traffic feature, which alerts the driver to current traffic conditions and can display alternate routes around gridlock. It features expanded coverage including many surface streets within the U.S., allowing the driver to choose faster, less congested routes. HD Digital Traffic is subscription-free.

The navigation system can be controlled by voice or through the 7-inch electrostatic touch-screen audio display utilizing its tap, pinch and swipe functionality. The voice-activation system can respond to more casual command phrases that require less user familiarization, in addition to the previous capability of being able to understand spoken city and street names. For example, a voice request for "Radio 98.3 FM" can now be spoken in approximately a dozen different ways ranging from "change the radio station to 98.3" to "98.3 FM." This logic applies to audio functionality of the audio/information screen. The navigation system can also be controlled by voice with conventional navigation commands like, "Find nearest Chinese restaurant" or "find nearest ATM."

The audio system is automatically muted when the "Talk" button is pressed. The voice-recognition technology allows the driver to simply speak city and street names aloud, and the system responds by displaying the matches available in the database. Points of interest on the map – such as restaurants or grocery stores – can be displayed with brand logo icons or you can have the system provide turn-by-turn navigation, all by voice command. The point-of-interest (POI) database includes telephone numbers that can be dialed by using the Bluetooth®7 HandsFreeLink® system when the driver's cellular telephone is connected to the system.

USB Ports and Power Outlets In LX trims, a 12-volt power outlet is positioned at the base of the center stack on the right of the lower storage tray, with a 1.0-amp USB port positioned on the left. EX and above trims retain the 12-volt power outlet, while the USB port on the left is upgraded to 1.5 amps, and a 1.0-amp USB port is added inside the console.
