Honda Civic Hatchback Interior & Cargo Rating

2019 Civic Hatchback Interior

Spacious and versatile, the Civic's cabin blends high-quality materials with practical design and layout that rivals the class-leader in this regard, the VW Golf. Seating for five occupants is about as generous as any midsize vehicle could hope to be, while the cabin features numerous storage nooks for personal effects. In general, the ergonomics are sound, too, with comfortable seats, a great driving position, a wide range of seating adjustments, and controls that lie within reach and are generally easy to understand and operate. The volume knob and physical controls for most climate control functions are great considering Honda's previous troubles with its touchscreen volume control, but the infotainment itself still lags behind the best systems in the segment.

Seating and Interior Space

The Civic Hatch seats five occupants in a spacious, airy interior. While the exterior dimensions are par for a compact vehicle, the interior is roomy. Access is easy through large front door openings, although rear occupants need to duck a little due to the sloping roofline. Once inside, the roofline doesn't impede headroom too much and front and rear occupants are both given generous amounts of space. Only those taller than six-foot may find the headroom tight, but no rivals offer anything better. Legroom is generous too, for both the front and rear passengers, and the driver will find a wide range of adjustments on both the tilt-and-telescopic steering as well as the seat (power eight-way on higher trims) to provide a great driving position with good visibility through all but the rear three-quarter views. LATCH anchors in the rear add practicality, while large rear door openings allow easy inserting and removal of child safety seats.

Interior Colors and Materials

While leather trim is available on higher trim lines, the base interior specification of the Civic Hatch is black cloth upholstered seats for the LX, Sport, and EX models. From the EX-L Navi, leather upholstered seating surfaces are equipped in black, while the Sport Touring give buyers a choice between black leather or combination black/ivory leather surfaces when paired with the White Orchid and Polished Metal exterior hues. On the Sport and Sport Touring models, aluminum sport pedals add a touch of flare along with a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift-knob, the latter also equipped on the EX-L Navi. The bulk of the dash is black with silver highlights and most of the key touchpoints are soft-touch in nature.

2019 Civic Hatchback Trunk and Cargo Space

With 25.7 cubic feet of storage space behind the rear seats, the Civic Hatch dominates the segment for standard storage volume. The Chevrolet Cruze is closest at 22.7 cubic feet while the Toyota Corolla Hatch only boasts 18 cubic feet. However, with the rear seats folded (they collapse in a 60/40 split to enhance practicality), the Civic's maximum volume of 46.2 cubic feet is behind the 47.2 of the Cruze and the 53.7 of the VW Golf. The standard volume is however generous enough for regular grocery shopping or large suitcases, and the large hatch opens wide and has a low lift-over height making it easy to load larger items.

Where the Civic Hatch excels is in the interior storage options, where large door pockets are practical, the two-tiered center storage binnacle offers a pass-through for a charge cable, and the under-armrest storage bin is massive. The cupholders are generously proportioned and are deep as well, while the glovebox is one of the larger ones in this segment.

2019 Civic Hatchback Infotainment and Features


The Civic Hatch is a feature-packed vehicle in most of the available trims. All offer the Honda Sensing safety suite of collision avoidance features, while from the EX model you'll be equipped with the Lane Watch blind spot camera. All models receive a rearview camera and climate control (dual-zone for the EX and higher trims), while power windows are standard all around. Adaptive cruise control is yet another feature on all trims, while the likes of an auto-dimming rearview mirror are reserved for the EX (optional), EX-L Navi, and Sport Touring. Lower trims are equipped with manual seat adjustment, but eight-way power adjustment is added to the driver's perch from the EX-L Navi along with heated front seats, while front passenger power adjustment is reserved for the Sport Touring which also adds heating to the outboard rear seats. A power tilt-and-slide sunroof is equipped to all models from the EX onwards.


Infotainment on both the base LX and Sport trims is taken care of via a five-inch color AM/FM radio system with media streaming via Bluetooth, USB, and auxiliary inputs, Bluetooth hands-free, and a four-speaker audio system. Apple CarPlay and Android auto are integrated from the EX trim, which upscales to a seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system with eight speakers, SiriusXM satellite radio, HD radio, and an additional USB port. The reserve of the top-of-the-line Sport Touring model is a 540-watt premium audio system with 12 speakers including a subwoofer, while the trim also receives a built-in navigation system with voice recognition and HD traffic information.
