The current-generation Honda Civic is about to receive its first refresh since debuting in late 2015. Honda has also brought in jazzed up Sport trim for the Civic that comes with 18-inch wheels, a splitter-style rear bumper, rear spoiler and additional black detailing for the fascia.
The Honda Civic has always been one of the best-selling cars in America, and for good reason.
The 2019 Honda Civic features some very mild styling updates. In front, there's a new piano black "wing" on the grille (replaces chrome) and a restyled lower fascia. Honda is positioning the new Sport trim between the LX and EX trims.
The 2019 Civic will get Honda Sensing as standard on Civic Coupe and Sedan from LX to Touring models. 10-spoke alloy wheels finished in Berlina Black add to the visual sportiness, whereas the interior benefits from 7.0-inch infotainment with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a volume button for the audio system. It looks the same to us, but Honda says that the LED and halogen headlights have been updated.
There is still no word as to when the Philippines will get the 2019 model Honda Civic.
While the U.S. market features both a turbocharged 1,5-litre petrol engine and a naturally aspirated 2,0-litre, South Africans are offered the former along with a free-breathing 1,8-litre. All variants of the 2019 Civic get the Honda Sensing technology which includes Collision Mitigation Braking System with forward collision warning, Road Departure Mitigation with Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keeping Assist System and Adaptive Cruise Control. Since its introduction, the 10th-generation Civic has amassed dozens of major industry awards and accolades including the 2016 North American Car of the Year award, 2017 Kelley Blue Book Overall Best Buy of the Year, 2018 Car and Driver 10Best and 2018 AUTOMOBILE All-Stars award.
