Most* manual transmissions are towable 4-down.
*What does it say in the owners manual?

Is there a base plate available for the 2018? If there's been no change there is one for the 2017;

The 2018 Hatchback Sport with a 6 Speed states this: Owners manual

Models with Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT)
Improper towing, such as towing behind a motorhome or other motor vehicle, can damage the transmission.

It doesn't state the 6 Speed can or can't be towed.

Not a civic but I tow a Honda HRV six speed manual and makes for a great light weight toad. I believe the Honda Fit also does well.

Call Honda for confirmation?

Call a couple of companies such as Remco Towing, Demco Products, and Blue Ox and ask them what they know.

The # BX2265 Blue Ox Base Plate does fit the 2018 Honda Civic Hatchback Sport with Manual Transmission. I installed it today 3/4/2018 the 2017 and 2018 Civic Hatchbacks are the same.
