The Civic Hatchback is a relatively new offering on the U.S. market, but Honda decided is already time to do some small updates. So, the 2020 Civic Hatchback became more aggressive on both front and rear, gets a new interior trim, and the most important thing: Sport Touring trim is now available with 6-speed manual transmission.

For the exterior, the 2020 Civic Hatchback gets revised styling of the lower bumper fog light housings, an updated “wing” grille crossbar and sportier blackout treatment for the headlights. On the interior Honda is offering a new dash trim for every trim level: Sport trims receiving a new geometrical pattern, LX and EX a new painted pattern, and EX-L and Sport Touring an exclusive brushed black treatment.

The 2020 Civic Hatchback is now on sale, with prices ranging from $21,650 for the LX version to $28,850 for the Sport Touring version.
