New 2019 Honda Civic Launches With Sport Trim
It’s finally time for the 10th-generation Honda Civic to get a makeover. For the 2019 model year, the compact Civic Sedan and Civic Coupe have been visually restyled from front to back for even higher curb appeal.
The front bumper and apron, upper and lower grilles, headlights and even wheels have all gotten a touch-up. Even more notable is the new 2019 Honda Civic Sport, a brand new trim that slots between the LX and EX and comes with piano black lower front end and side pod accents.
The Civic Sport is meant for enthusiasts on a budget. It boasts a new decklid spoiler on the sedan variant and large 18-inch, 10-spoke Berlina Black alloy wheels that, when combined with the aforementioned black trim elements, create a strong appearance suited for those who like to rev their engine a little too much. Inside, it also gets Apple CarPlay and Android Auto included in an updated 7.0-inch infotainment system.
The new 2019 Honda Civic is also the first Civic to come standard with the Honda Sensing suite of active and passive safety systems throughout the entire range, from the LX to the Touring trim. The package includes such safety features as automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, and lane-keeping assistance.
This is part of Honda’s plan to offer Honda Sensing at no extra cost on all of its vehicles by 2022. It seems the Civic will be a little ahead of the curve in the plan whenever it goes on sale, which we expect will be some time this fall.
