Honda has updated the Civic Sedan and Coupe for 2019 model year, which includes updated styling, a new Sport trim for both body styles and standard Honda Sensing technology on all trims.
The styling tweaks are barely noticeable compared to the 2018 models, however, there is a piano black upper fascia “wing”, restyled bumper with chrome accents and updated halogen or LED headlights. A chrome accent on the lower rear bumper of the Sedan and new wheel designs for both models – including larger 18-inch rims on the Touring trim – round off the exterior styling updates.
The Sport trim is positioned between the LX and EX, and gets more piano black accents. The Sedan gets a decklid spoiler, plus a diffuser-style rear lower bumper incorporating a chrome polygonal exhaust finisher similar to the Civic Si. Large 18-inch 10-spoke alloy wheels with Berlina Black finish round off the Sport’s look.
There seems to be no changes in the powertrains. The Sport trim features the same 158 hp 2.0-liter i-VTEC engine mated to either a CVT with G-Shift Control or a 6-speed manual. Adding more tech to the Sport, the new trim receives an updated 7-inch Display Audio with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration. The top-end variants get a 1.5L turbo.
All trims of the 2019 Civic Sedan and Coupe from LX to the top-end Touring feature Honda Sensing technology, which includes Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS) with Forward Collision Warning; Road Departure Mitigation (RDM) incorporating Lane Departure Warning (LDW); Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS); and Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC).
Honda said that the cumulative sales of the 10th-generation Civic will surpass 1 million units this year.
