While the Honda Civic Hatchback has been confirmed for Australia, it remains to be seen what powertrains will be offered. At launch, Honda is offering several powertrains: a turbocharged 1.5-litre four-cylinder petrol with different output levels (USA: 180 PS, 240 Nm, Japan: 182 PS, 240 Nm) and a naturally-aspirated 2.0-litre petrol (158 PS, 187 Nm). As for Europe, they will only get the e:HEV petrol-electric hybrid.
Honda Australia is expected to source the all-new Honda Civic Hatchback from Thailand, mirroring the current arrangement.
