Honda has released several different models of their ever popular Civic model including the TypeR, Coupe, Sedan and the new Hatchback. When Honda first announced that a Hatchback model would be making its way to the U.S. market, the anticipation was immense. Honda is now predicting that the new model will make up nearly 15 percent of all Civic sales in the U.S. with an expected 50,000 units annually, according to Wards Auto.
To help consumers choose between the Civic Sedan and the Hatchback, two models one of the most popular cars on the road, AutoGuide decided to detail key differences between the two. One of the key differences between the two models is in the use of interior space. The Sedan comes with more legroom in the back, making it a much cozier ride for rear seat passengers than its Hatchback counterpart. However, what the Hatchback lacks in passenger room, it compensates in storage space. The new model comes with an available 25.7 cu-ft of space behind the rear seats, almost twice as much as the Sedan.
Another key difference is that the Hatchback comes exclusively with a turbocharged engine that puts out over 170 horsepower and comes in two sport trims. The Sport and Sport Touring models boast a subtle body kit and an increase in power from the rest of the Civic family. While the turbocharged engine is also available for the Sedan, drivers can opt to go with the more modest 158 horsepower 4-cylinder engine as well. While the 4-cylinder engine is available in every trim of the Sedan, the turbocharged engine is exclusive in the EX-T trim and above.
