Honda Civic: Sedan vs. Hatchback vs. Coupe
On the hunt for the perfect compact car?
You will need to specify whether you want the Honda Civic Sedan, Civic Hatchback, or Civic Coupe. Although each model offers comparable pricing among an identical assortment of features across similar trim levels, they distinguish themselves in key areas, primarily in interior dimensions.
To help you decide on which model is best for you, our in-house Civic enthusiasts laid out the primary differences between the 2020 Honda Civic Sedan, Hatchback, and Coupe for you to compare.
2020 Honda Civic Sedan
2020 Honda Civic Hatchback
2020 Honda Civic Coupe
|Cargo Volume (cu ft)||15.1||46.2||12.1|
|Passenger Volume (cu ft)||97.8||97.2||91.0|
|Front Legroom (in)||42.3||42.3||42.3|
|Rear Legroom (in)||37.4||36.0||35.9|
Honda Civic Sedan vs. Coupe vs. Hatchback: What’s the Difference?
To no surprise, the 2020 Honda Civic Hatchback boxes out both the Civic Sedan and the Civic Coupe in terms of cargo volume with a commodious 46.2 cu ft. No trunk separates the passenger and cargo compartments, which opens up an abundance of space to not only store more, but fit bulkier items.
The Civic Sedan and Coupe certainly hold their own with 15.1 cu ft and 12.1 cu ft of trunk volume, respectively. Both of these figures come out among the leaders in their classes.
When it comes to keeping your friends and family comfortable, the 2020 Honda Civic Sedan offers the most passenger volume of the trifecta with 97.8 cu ft – a smidge more than the Civic Hatchback. This extra volume will benefit rear passengers the most, who enjoy over an inch of more legroom than in the Civic Hatchback and the expectedly tighter Civic Coupe.
As the Civic Coupe only offers two doors, unlike the Sedan and Hatchback, you should also keep in mind the inherently more involved process of loading in rear passengers.
The 2020 Honda Civic Sedan and Coupe come standard with a stout 158 horsepower 2.0L engine and offer a livelier 174 horsepower 1.5L turbocharged engine as options.
The Hatchback comes powered by that optional turbocharged engine as a standard and makes 174 horsepower right out of the box. Opt for the Sport trim, and that engine receives a tune to top out at 180 horsepower, which is marginally more than the maximum output of the Civic Sedan and Civic Hatchback.
