DETAILS

Factory Specifications:
The 1989 Honda Civic hatchback is a fuel-efficient, three-door compact. The tiny car, part of the fourth-generation Civic line, is a favorite for car tuners due in large part to its independent suspension and a curb weight lower than nearly anything else on the road. Markets around the world saw a plethora of Civic hatchback variants. In the United States the 1989 hatchback was available in STD, DX and Si trim levels. Engines Three engines were available for the North American 1989 Civic hatchback market. Base STD models are equipped with the D15B1 single-overhead-cam, 16-valve four-cylinder with a 1.5-liter displacement, bore and stroke of 2.95-by-3.33 inches and a 13-to-1 compression ratio. Power output is 70 horsepower and 82 lb.-ft. of torque. The mid-level DX model has a modified version of this same engine, coded D15B2. The DX engine modifies the single-overhead-cam unit and engine components to produce 92 horsepower and 97 lb.-ft. of torque. Top-level Si cars received a completely different engine, coded D16A6. This 1.6-liter motor has a single overhead cam, 16 valves, bore and stroke of 2.99-by-3.46 inches and a 9.5-to-1 compression ratio. Power output is 108 horsepower and 108 lb.-ft. of torque. Drivetrain and Chassis All U.S. 1989 hatchbacks use a front-engine, front-wheel drive layout. Three transmissions were available depending on trim level. Base STD cars were available only with a four-speed manual. DX hatchbacks were equipped with a standard five-speed manual or a four-speed automatic as a buyer option. As for the Si, the only transmission choice was a five-speed manual. The fourth-generation Civic line uses an independent-suspension setup consisting of double wishbones front and rear. While economy car competitors used a solid rear axle, Honda's rear wishbone setup provided a higher level of cornering prowess. STD and DX models benefit from a front stabilizer bar, while the Si adds a rear stabilizer bar as well for a more controlled ride. Front disc brakes paired with rear drum brakes provide stopping power. Anti-lock brakes were not an option. Wheel size is 13 inches for the STD and DX and 14 inches for the Si. Exterior and Interior The Civic hatch is a small car by any standard, measuring 156.1 inches long, 65.6 inches wide and 52.4 inches tall. Wheelbase is 98.4 inches with curb weight ranging from approximately 1,900 to 2,300 lb. depending on engine, transmission and interior options. The car seats five, though the rear seat is best for children or for short trips. With its folding rear seat the car can stow an impressive amount of cargo under the rear hatch. 3dr Hatchback 1.6L SI 5-Spd / $9,980 Si Hatchback Compare Price $10,210 MSRP Engine 1.6L 105 hp I4 Seating 5 MPG 24 city 30 highway Drivetrain FWD Body Style Hatchback Hide details Price MSRP$10,210 Transmission Options DrivetrainFWD 5-Speed Manual MPG 24 city 30 highway Safety Amenities Sunroof/MoonroofStandard Stereo N/A Engine 1.6L 105 hp I4 Horsepower 105 @ 6000 rpm Torque 98 @ 5000 rpm Displacement1600 cc Bore X StrokeN/A Compression Ratio9.0:1 Dimensions Max Seating5 Gas Tank Size 11.9 gallons Front Legroom 43.0 in Back Legroom 30.0 in Wheelbase 98.0 Length 156.0 inches Height 52.0 inches Cargo and Towing
