2017 Honda Civic Hatchback vs 2017 Volkswagen Golf
In late 2015 when the tenth-generation Honda Civic was first introduced, people were obviously excited about the Sedan and Coupe. But even more than that, they were excited about the new models that they’d either never seen before or hadn’t seen in a very long time. The 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback is the first of those new models, and we couldn’t be happier with it. We thought we’d see how it measures up to the 2017 Volkswagen Golf, to help make your shopping decision even easier.
Advantages of the 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback
We assumed the two vehicles would be quite comparable to one another, knowing how popular the Volkswagen Golf is among sporty hatchback enthusiasts, but as the table above shows… the 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback is superior in quite a few different categories. Let’s start with the top two rows, which focus on fuel economy – easily one of the most important aspects of any vehicle in today’s market, regardless of segment.
When it comes to driving through city streets like those here in Edmonton, the Civic Hatchback utilizes 1.8 litres less fuel to drive the same 100 kilometres as the VW Golf. Jumping on the highway leads to a similar advantage, as the Civic Hatchback needs 0.8 litres less fuel. Not quite as wide a difference as city fuel economy, but still a pretty big leg up. Generally, when a vehicle is more efficient than its competitor, the rival vehicle can outpace it in horsepower, yet here – although it’s not listed – the Civic Hatchback deliver 174 horsepower to the VW Golf’s 170 HP.
Efficiency and power aren’t the only advantages, however. As the next two rows show, it’s also more spacious on the interior as well. Offering nearly 3 extra cubic feet of space in the cargo hold, plus an extra 6.6 cu. ft. of space in the cabin for you and your passengers to stretch out and get comfortable in. If these advantages, plus the outstanding features and sleek design, have you interested in a brand-new 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback, be sure to give us a call at the sales desk or schedule a test drive right here on our website.
