Honda adds Sport trim, safety tech to 2019 Civic Sedan and Coupe

  • 2019 Honda Civic standardizes safety, sprouts Sport trim

"We have no planned changes this year for Civic, there will be an update in 2019", Honda Australia said in a statement. To make it sportier, the front lower bumper gets a full-width splitter.

No big change from the well-received 10th-generation Civic, which is expected.

Japanese carmaker Honda has updated the Civic sedan that sits between Fit/Jazz and Accord globally. What sets it apart is the blackened lower front fascia and a rear spoiler for the sedan variants.

The new 2019 Honda Civic made its debut Monday with a slightly revised front and rear bumpers, standard suite of advanced safety features, and a new Sport trim for all body styles that was previously reserved for the Civic Hatchback.

Going into details of the 2019 MY Civic, those without a keen eye would proably have a hard time looking for the changes. 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 out the exterior styling updates on the returning trims.


Under the hood, the Civic Sport is offered with a 2.0-liter four cylinder engine and is available with either a continously variable transmission (CVT) or a 6-speed manual transmission.

Inside, the Civic facelift gets Honda's updated seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

The news certain to intrigue most buyers, though, involves the Civic's safety systems. This package includes automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, lane-keep assist, lane departure warning and adaptive cruise control.

I was always surprised that Honda had a Sport trim for the Fit but not the Civic.
