I have a feeling the sport hatch is going to be the NA 2.0L.. but I would much, much prefer it to be the 1.5L Turbo.Not sure it will be this time... we've seen spy shots of the hatch with one and two exhaust outlets. Not that those might not be for other markets besides North America.... but I feel like we might end up seeing the 2.0L base engine at least on the LX model, if not the Sport model. If they do decide to make the turbo standard again, I think the Sport model(s) need to get another power bump (the 192hp tune from the accord would work perfectly for a sport or sport touring offering)
I'm wondering what hatch to buy if no turbo in the sport hatch. I don't like the Toyota corolla hatch as doesn't have enough cargo room in back.No Si hatch and I'm going to Toyota.
It’ll have the turbo.I'm wondering what hatch to buy if no turbo in the sport hatch. I don't like the Toyota corolla hatch as doesn't have enough cargo room in back.
Soooo, that will lead me back to the civic sport touring hatch if it has the turbo & 27/28 cu ft cargo in back. I used to have a Scion xB so obviously I don't care what the exterior looks like lol.
It would seem that all manufacturers are going to a liftback style once the sedan reaches a certain size. There may be some marketing, style, size or technical reasons for this but it seems like everyone has done this.I wish they'd give up this ugly shape and go for a more conventional hatchback design. The sloping rear end looks so odd.
