2017 Honda Civic Hatchback vs 2017 Ford Fiesta ST
After Honda announced that there would be five different models on their all-new, 10th-generation Honda Civic lineup, everyone quickly got excited over the new Civic Type R. But the Type R won’t be coming out until late next year, while the equally-impressive 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback has already arrived right here at Wheaton Honda. We’re extremely thrilled with how the brand-new hot hatch turned out, and can’t wait to get you in the driver’s seat. But we thought we’d see how it measures up to one of the hottest hot hatches on the roads right now, by comparing it to the 2017 Ford Fiesta ST.
Advantages of the 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback
A glance up at the table shows just how impressive the new 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback is, as it trumps the popular 2017 Ford Fiesta ST in every single specification that we analyzed. Starting from the top, fuel efficiency is important no matter what segment or class you’re looking at, even sporty cars like these two. Civic Hatch utilizes 7.6 litres of fuel to drive 100 kilometres, which is 1.4 litres less than the Fiesta ST uses, when driving through city streets like those here in Edmonton. After hopping on the highway, the Civic Hatchback keeps up the advantage by utilizes 5.9 l/100km, 1.5 l/100km less than the Fiesta.
While fuel efficiency is always important, space is even more important in hatchbacks like these. If you didn’t need the cargo space, you’d just be looking a sports coupe or sedan. So the fact that the Civic Hatchback delivers a whopping 15.6 extra cubic feet of cargo space behind the back seats is pretty huge. To make things even better for the Honda Civic, it also offers 27.7 extra cu. ft. of space in the cabin for you and your passengers to stretch out and get comfortable in, which is nice no matter the type of vehicle.
