Differences Between the Honda Civic Hatchback & Sedan
Serving Tallahassee, Valdosta, and Panama City, FL
As one of the best-selling and most critically acclaimed automotive nameplates in history, the Honda Civic is still going strong as it enters the 2018 model year. The Civic is now in its tenth production cycle, with a wide range of trim configurations that cater to virtually any type of driver. And of course, the Civic’s long-standing attributes—expert engineering, a high level of durability, sharp handling, and excellent gas mileage—are still in place.
Although the 2018 Honda Civic is a five-seater, the Hatchback and Sedan differ in the amount of interior space they offer. Both body styles have four doors and two rows of seats. However, while the Sedan has a trunk for cargo space, the Hatchback relies on a liftback, which functions as a fifth door. Due to its configuration, the Hatchback provides more interior total volume, which is measured at 122.9 cubic feet. On the Sedan, you’d need to go with the base-level LX to max out interior space at 112.9 cubic feet. Also, standard cargo space on the 2018 Civic is measured at 25.7 cubic feet on the Hatchback and up to 15.1 cubic feet on the Sedan (if you choose the top-level Touring trim).
The 2018 Honda Civic Sedan offers two engine choices. One is a 2.0-liter inline 4-cylinder (I4) engine that produces 158 horsepower and 138 lb-ft of torque. The other is a turbocharged 1.5-liter I4 that provides 174 horsepower and up to 167 lb-ft of torque. On the Hatchback, Honda gets rid of the 2.0-liter I4 and leaves the smaller yet more powerful 1.5-liter I4. However, if you go with the Sport or the Sport Touring trim, the engine output is spruced up to 180 horsepower—with up to 177 lb-ft of torque on the former and 162 lb-ft of torque on the latter.
The 2018 hatchback and sedan iterations of the Civic share similar features. Both boast smartphone integration a la Android Auto / Apple CarPlay, multi-angle rear-view camera, and Honda's exclusive LaneWatch™ camera. You will have ample technology at your fingertips regardless of whether you choose the Civic sedan or hatchback models.
