After over a decade away from the North American market, the Civic Hatchback is making a comeback, ready to face some fierce competition in the five-door segment. It now sports the 10th generation Civic 1.5L turbo engine rated at 174 horsepower and 162 lb-ft of torque, wrapped up in a bold new look.

Sabrina Giacomini

Sabrina loves cars and hates writing bios, except she’s been told that she can’t get away with writing lazy introductions anymore. So here goes nothing: a long time ago, in a galaxy not so far away called Quebec, a girl was born, destined to love Mustangs, ride motorcycles and master the Force. A Bachelor in Art History and an essay on the positioning of the Morgan cars in the modern definition of the Arts and Crafts movement later, the girl-turned-woman is now thriving in the realms of automotive/motorcycling journalism and geekery of all genre, pretending to use the Force to open automatic doors and to know what she’s doing at the wheel of awesome cars. Sabrina also enjoys walks on the beach, pina coladas and endless sentences.
