The 2021 Civic Hatchback Sport and Sport Touring still come with a manual transmission.Honda announced that all manual variants of the Civic with exception of Type R are discontinued for 2021 and onward. That includes Sport Sedan 2.0NA, Sport Hatch 1.5T, Sport Touring Hatch 1.5T and all coupe variants (both AT and MT). So, the CTR is the ONLY Honda left in USA that offers manual. Might as well be none because that car has very limited customer base and it's still $10K over MSRP. Bald move by Honda to kill all manuals.
With a spacious interior, a turbocharged engine and a sporty design, the 2021 Civic Hatchback sets the standard for five-door cars.
Only one way to find out... Go for some test drives!Ah ok, I have seen that too; the Hybrid seems to have more power than the 1.5 but I am looking for the overall driving experience. I prioritize handling and engaging responses than pure power, though more power is fine too . The thing is, I drive a lot and the Hybrid's MPG seem appealing. Then again, there are many vehicles nowadays that get great mileage without having to go the Hybrid route. I don't want to have to replace the battery or other components when the mileage is 150,000+ . If the 1.5T had the standard auto transmission, I might have looked at that model more closely.
I am confused when looking at my potential next car. I'm looking at various models. Fun to drive is one of the key factors. Good gas mileage is a bonus. Wondering if the Hybrid takes away any of that from the Accord. Thanks.
