Default Is the 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback a True Sports Car?



We took the turbocharged Civic Hatch canyon carving and drag racing because that's what makes it happy. We also find out how it stands against an eighth-gen Honda Civic Si.

Read the rest on the Honda-Tech homepage. >>

180hp sports car...It's like they are going backwards, Honda's put down that power 20plus years ago N/A. They should have made this at least 100 more hp. Make a nice little turbocharged 300hp setup and they could sell more in my opinion.

BTW, this video sucked. Needs more ROSS and sportbike revs.

Manuel and Jake need to learn how to drive...a 15.8 in a K20 Si Sedan? LMAO....he should just downgrade to a 1990 Integra LS at this point.

That video was rather painful to watch. Three takeaways:

1) Jake Stumph pulled the muffler off his 2010 Si so he could hear vtec kick.

2) Manuel is a horrible, horrible drag racer that sometimes talks in really long sentences.

3) No one seems to know what a proper sports car is (hint: Civic 5-door is not a Sports car).

Don't know, trying to make lemonade from lemons. Hondas suck.
