2019 Honda Civic Sedan And Coupe Gets A Nose Job, Sport Grade And New Tech

The 2019 Honda Civic Sedan and Coupe just touched down in America with a few mid-cycle updates.

Visually, the compact models stand out from their restyled front bumper and apron, upper and lower grilles, and halogen and LED headlights.

At the rear end, the four-door version gets a chrome accent on the lower part of the bumper, whereas the larger 18-inch rims found on the Touring trim round up the list of styling updates.

New for the 2019MY is the Honda Civic Sport. The grade slots between the LX and EX and comes packed with piano black lower front end and side pod accents. The Sedan adds a decklid spoiler and splitter-style rear lower bumper that incorporates a polygonal exhaust tip with chrome look, similar to the Civic Si.

The Civic Sport sits on 18-inch alloy wheels with a 10-spoke design and Berlina Black finish, and gets an updated 7-inch infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Powering the new Civic Sport is a naturally aspirated 2.0-liter VTEC engine that works together with a six-speed manual gearbox, as standard, or an optional CVT. While Honda didn’t confirm the power output, the 2.0-liter engine is most likely the 158hp unit found in existing models.

The final upgrade Honda prepared for the 2019 Civic Sedan and Coupe is the addition of the Honda Sensing driving assistance suite, which is now standard on all grades.

Part of their commitment to offer it at no extra cost on all vehicles by 2022, it brings Collision Mitigation Braking System with Forward Collision Warning, Road Departure Mitigation with Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keeping Assist, and Adaptive Cruise Control.

Honda didn’t say when the 2019 Civic will go on sale across the nation, but it should arrive at dealers this fall, in all likelihood.

    Looks like the tamed the entire car.
    I hope the nose job will make it to the Accord…it is the only odd part of its design.

    • Jay

      I was just gonna say that. The accord really needs it. The civic never really looked all that bad to me.

  • LJ

    Subtle but an improvement. The only thing that’s kept my wife and I from buying the sedan for a second car is that it’s so goddamn ugly.

  • Galaxium

    I’m never a fan of piano black plastic being used on the front end of a car. It ends up getting so many scratches from just small debris hitting the car head-on.

    I think the chrome looked better.

  • Christian

    still a shame that the Coupé is for the US only… Would be a nice fit here in Europe. Alternative for a gt86

    • Loquacious Borborygmus

      Certainly looks wise.

      Wish they’d make another Integra or Prelude though.

      • Christian

        Well, the Accord Coupé is Technical a Prelude… 🙂

    • Bash

      That’s a great idea.

  • nastinupe

    Looks more Hondaee, which is a good thing.

    • Honda NSX-R

      You’re saying it looks like a Hyundai now? 😜

    • D83

      Excuse me, Civic was launched first before Elantra did, in 2016.

  • Salih Ahzem

    I think updated infotainment also means finally there is an actual VOLUME KNOB as it should been the case from the beginning!

  • HaltestelleLuitpolthafen

    Yeah, that’s an improvement.

  • Karl

    Still hideous

  • Brent Morrison

    It looks almost the same…

  • Mr. EP9

    Better, but still ugly. Let’s see how the Civic Type R looks or the front of the Civic Si and maybe it will be better.

  • WalthamDan

    Wow amazing what a little nip n tuck can do for a car. Have really disliked the recent car with all the garish, oversized black plastic pieces adorning the lower front and back. This cleans that all up very nicely. Good job Honda.

    • Brent Morrison

      This is not the hatchback

  • Jason Miller

    Another ‘Sport’ model that means nothing. One of the reasons my Elantra Sport isn’t taken seriously which is actually worthy of the title.

  • charlie bear

    A step forward from the ugly actual design, I hope Honda gets back to better design. They cant sink lower than the actual design!

  • Honda NSX-R

    I have a feeling that it’d look better in person

  • JimmyK

    If only they make the coupe a type r…

  • Liam Paul

    I dont see these changes, can someone draw some circles around the changes so I can see what they are talking about since it looks 100% as ugly as the 18 model does, ofcause in Honda defense, I can’t remember the last time I have seen a honda civic coupe and it has been a few weeks since I have seen any 17-18 civic on the roads in maryland.

  • Tenzin Pelha

    wow they made it look ugly now. smh

  • Nordschleife

    I approve. They trimmed out the excess. It looks a little more sophisticated.

  • Six_Tymes

    looks Better, finally

  • D83

    Wow Nice!!
    Honda put a calm design this time, instead of “busy” one.

  • Krisnadi Imam

    eh… it looks much cleaner, i like it 😀
