Honda is bringing its driver assistance suite as standard equipment across the range.
After refreshing the 2019 Honda Pilot and HR-V, now it’s time for the Civic Sedan and Civic Coupe. Honda has given these two 2019 Civic models a facelift and thrown in a few other mid-cycle updates.
The 2019 Civic Sedan and Coupe sport a revised front bumper, as well as restyled halogen and LED headlights. Honda also fitted a chrome accent to the lower rear bumper of the 2019 Civic Sedan and is offering new wheels on both Sedan and Coupe models. The Touring gets larger, 18-inch wheels as standard equipment.
The greatest change to the 2019 Civic Sedan and Coupe, however, is the Sport trim. Honda already has a Sport trim on the Civic Hatchback. Now, it will be an option across the whole 2010 Civic range. Slotted between the LX and EX models, the Sport will don a similar front fascia, rear spoiler and polygonal exhaust finishers to the Civic Si. The 2.0-liter engine – likely packing the same 158 horsepower and 138 lb-ft of torque as in the current models – comes mated to a six-speed manual or an optional CVT.
As with the new Pilot and HR-V, Honda also added their Honda Sensing driver assistance suite as standard equipment. 2019 Civic Sedan and Coupe models new get Collision Mitigation Braking, Road Departure Mitigation, Lane Keep Assist and Adaptive Cruise Control on all trims.
Pricing information is not available, but we don’t expect the 2019 Civic Sedan or Coupe to start much higher than they are now. The 2018 Civic Sedan LX starts from $18,940 before destination charges, while the Coupe starts from $19,350. 2019 models should go on sale later this year.
