2019 Honda Civic Sedan Is A Well-Sorted Package

Updated for the 2019MY, the Honda Civic brings some light visual and technical changes inside and out, in an attempt to make it a more worthy opponent in the compact class.

A rival to the likes of the Volkswagen Jetta, Mazda3 and Toyota Corolla, the 2019 Civic Sedan offers decent space for adult occupants both front and rear, good boot volume and sufficient gear.

The base LX and Sport, which start from $19,450 and $21,150 in the U.S., are powered by a 2.0-liter engine rated at 158 horsepower. The EX, EX-L and Touring, on the other hand, get a 1.5-liter turbocharged unit, making 174 horsepower.

RoadShow put the spotlight on the top-of-the-line Touring, which starts from $27,300. The reviewer was impressed by quite a few features of the car, such as the revised center console, which can now hold large beverages, updated steering wheel controls and the fact that Honda has brought back some physical buttons for the infotainment system, which make it easier to control certain functions.

The engine and gearbox combo won’t disappoint either, with the former offering a decent level of power in the city and on the highway, and the latter being quite responsive for a CVT, as long as you don’t rely on the paddle shifters.

The ride is more than satisfactory, as the chassis setup allows drivers to attack corners and feel what the front wheels are doing at any time, whereas driving it in a more relaxed manner turns it into a comfortable cruiser.

    Top compact car?

    The new Mazda3 should come to mind..

  • Adam

    It sure is the best… the best at being the ugliest 🤮
    The Mazda 3 would be the best in that segment I believe.

  • Bash

    Well. It’s a good package if you look at the value/cost/reliability/options. But looks/design wise, Hyundai have better offerings.

    • Honda NSX-R

      The Elantra is ugly too 😂😂

      • Bash

        I’m not sure what it’s funny but yeah I agree with you and it wasn’t the Elantra I was referring to.
