The Exterior Features of the 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback

For Detroit area drivers looking for a hatchback sedan that is as stylish as it is versatile and as dynamic as it is powerful, the 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback has it all. And with a long list of exterior features throughout the trim levels, drivers with different preferences, needs, and lifestyles will be able to choose the model that is just right for them.

Standard Exterior Features

The Civic Hatchback boasts a stylish, sporty, and sophisticated look on the road. With body-colored door handles and side mirrors, the hatchback is streamlined and elegant. As Car and Driver says, “the design is expressive and angular, and the car’s streamlined shape is particularly appealing.” And a body-colored rear roofline spoiler not only helps optimize the Civic Hatchback’s aerodynamics but also punctuates a commanding presence.

  • Projector-Beam Halogen Headlights with Auto-On/Off – No matter how dark the road ahead is, these headlights will illuminate the way automatically when needed without the driver’s input.
  • Security System with Remote Entry and Trunk Release – This feature makes getting in the Civic Hatchback easier and faster, whether you have your hands full or not.
  • LED Brake Lights – Make sure vehicles behind the Civic Hatchback see when the driver starts braking, so everyone drives better and safer on the road.
  • Rear Window Wiper/Washer with Heated Wiper Zone – The back window will offer a crystal-clear view despite rain, fog, or condensation.

Available Upgraded Features

For drivers who want more convenience, style, and sophistication, an exploration up the trim levels will reveal even more exterior features and upgrades to the standard model. Starting with the EX trim, a one-touch power moonroof with tilt feature becomes standard and lets you feel the wind in your hair. Everything from variable intermittent windshield wipers with rain-sensing feature to LED headlights with auto-on/off makes the Civic Hatchback’s upper trim levels desirable for drivers who appreciate convenience and great features.

  • Fog Lights – Penetrate the darkest night and the foggiest morning with state-of-the-art fog lights.
  • Smart Entry – Drivers won’t have to dig in their pockets or purses for the keys with Smart Entry, which comes standard on the EX, EX-L Navi, and Sport Touring models.
  • Heated Side Mirrors – No more fogged-up or icy side mirrors with this feature, which comes standard on the EX, EX-L Navi, and Sport Touring trims.
  • Underbody Spoiler Kit – Standard on the Sport and Sport Touring models, this feature gets the Civic Hatchback moving with aerodynamics like never before.


No matter which model you decide is right for you, there are still many other ways drivers can customize and tailor their Civic Hatchback to suit their taste and preferences.

  • Chrome Door Trim – This accessory adds a dramatic line across the side of the Civic Hatchback, lending itself to eye-catching style.
  • Door Visors – Let the air in but keep the rain out with door visors that allow you to experience less-than-perfect days in a perfect way.
  • Tailgate Spoiler – Helping the Civic Hatchback zip along the road, the tailgate spoiler is also an accessory that gives the rear a winged silhouette.


Coming as standard on the LX trim are 16-inch alloy wheels. Starting with the EX model, drivers will see an upgrade to 17-inch alloy wheels that refine the grip on the road and reduce wind resistance. The Sport and Sport Touring models get even bigger and badder with 18-inch alloy wheels that enhance the vehicle’s driver-centric spirit and add a bold and aggressive stance to the Civic Hatchback. And for drivers who want even more drama, there is an 18-inch accessory alloy wheel option with a sporty, two-toned finish and a five-pointed-star design. These wheels make a lasting impression whether they’re spinning on the highway or parked at the meter.
