Review
Why rare breed? That's because Kah Motor only brings in less than 50 units of 1.5t Civic Hatchbacks and they have cleared pretty much their entire inventory. Its sales were lackluster due to its high price when it was launched... Being $14k more expensive than the Sedan version but Kah had a fire sale in early 2018.

I took delivery of my Civic Hatchback in mid April 2018 to replace my aging VW.

What I like
- striking and aggressive front fascia (resembles the Type R sans the side vents)
- comfortable and smooth suspension
- Kah gives full Modulo bodykit for free
- punchy 1.5 turbo engine (0-100kmph around 8s)
- quite cabin interior (much better than Mazda3)
- rear passenger has enough headroom due to slightly taller interior compared to the Civic sedan
- very comfortable rear passenger seats. I am 180cm tall with my normal driving position my rear passenger has plenty of leg room
- rear air-con vents for the rear passengers
- very big boot/cargo space, more practical than the sedan
- luggage privacy cover is very well thought-out
- decent FC, I am getting 600km per full tank
- full LED headlights and DRL
- automatic locks all doors when accelerate above 15kmph
- Honda Lanewatch is useful when you want to filter left
- 5yrs warranty, 3yrs free servicing

What I do not like
- polarizing rear styling
- black lining interior, can be gloomy and dark
- no Honda Sensing package (no lane departure warning, no lane keep assist, no autonomous braking)
- no automatic folding mirrors
- cruise control is difficult to use
- front passenger seat has no height adjustment

Review
Compared to its predecessor, the new Civic Hatch has gotten a lot of things right. It's got a punchy engine and handles like a hot hatch. The Civic also has a really sporty design.

Inside, the Civic has got space to rival the Golf and a lot of cubby holes for storing random small items. Interior styling is driver-oriented and it has a modern infotainment system.

Nothing else to say really, it's a pretty good car. Well, except for its price.

What I like
Punchy engine
Good handling
Driver-oriented interior
Sporty design

What I do not like
A bit expensive
