Honda is keen on keeping both the Civic sedan and coupé in tip-top shape and high up in the United States sales rankings by implementing a set of subtle adjustments.
The 2019 Honda Civic adds, therefore, tweaked design cues, a new trim, and new technology. These are available for the sedan as well as the coupé.
On the appearance front, the 2019 Civic get a new piano black upper front fascia, redesigned bumper, full-width splitter, and halogen or LED headlights. Larger 18-inch wheels are also available for the Touring trim.
Speaking of trims, the 2019 Honda Civic bags a new Sport model that slots in between the LX and EX variants. You’ll recognize one by having a look at the added rear lip spoiler, polygonal exhaust finish reminding of the Civic Si, and 18-inch, ten-spoke alloy wheels.
As for what lies under the hood, the 2019 Honda Civic Sport houses the familiar 2-liter, DOHC i-VTEC engine making 158 hp twinned with a CVT gearbox or a six-speed manual. Also new for the Sport model is the upgraded 7-inch Digital Display infotainment system that’s compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The 2019 model also sees the Civic receive the Honda Sensing bundle as standard (available from LX to Touring). The pack includes the likes of a collision mitigation braking system with forward collision warning, road departure mitigation with lane departure warning, lane keeping assist, and adaptive cruise control.
There’s no word on pricing at this point.
