2020 Civic Hatchback Sport Touring Features
Hatchbacks still have a strong place in the automotive marketplace. The new top-of-the-line Sport Touring trim picks up where the previous Touring trim left off. Meridian Honda customers will be getting an updated infotainment system that is compatible with the Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ suites of applications. The new high-end version also picks up the Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System™ with Voice Recognition and Honda HD Digital Traffic and a powerful premium audio system with 12 speakers and a subwoofer. The Sport Touring is the only 2020 Civic Hatchback model that features these systems.
Additionally, the Sport trim at the lower end of the trim ladder has also been revised. The 2020 Honda Civic Hatchback Sport adds Smart Start and Entry with an upgraded smartphone application-compatible infotainment system. Both the Sport and Sport Touring versions are also equipped with a 7-inch touchscreen interface.
The 2020 Civic Hatchback Sport Touring trim employs a turbocharged, inline four-cylinder engine that can be attached to a six-speed automatic or continuously variable transmission. Both gear-changers will help the new hatchback produce 180 horsepower. The new Civic Hatchback Sport Touring will make 177 pound-feet of torque with the manual transmission and 162 pound-feet when the CVT is chosen.
Cargo volume continues to be a strong selling point for the 2020 Honda Civic Hatchback. It still comes in most of its previously available trim grades including, LX, Sport, EX, EX-L and the new Sport Touring. All five of them make 25.7 cubic-feet of cargo volume with the rear seats deployed for passengers and up to 46.2 cubic-feet when those seats are properly stowed.
