2019 Honda Civic Sedan and Coupe: Canada’s Best-Selling Passenger Car Gains Updates

  • Honda Sensing® standard on all trims of Sedan and Coupe[1]
  • Refreshed exterior design enhances sporty and sophisticated feel
  • Updated Display Audio system with volume knob leads interior upgrades
  • New Sport trim offers accentuated style and value-added features

 

The 2019 Honda Civic Sedan and Coupe receive a number of upgrades aimed at extending Civic’s status as Canada’s best-selling passenger car to 21 consecutive years. Launching at Honda dealerships nationwide this fall, the refreshed Civic Sedan and Civic Coupe will feature new design cues inside and out, standard Honda Sensing® technology for all trims[2], and a new Display Audio system with physical buttons and a volume knob. Civic Sedan and Coupe buyers will also have a new Sport trim to consider, featuring unique styling, upsized 18-inch wheels and tires, enhanced handling and value-added feature content.

 

The 2019 Civic Sedan is available in five generously equipped trims: DX, LX, EX Sport, and Touring. Civic Coupe is available in, LX, Sport and Touring trims. The 2019 Civic Sedan Sport trim will arrive at dealerships in early 2019.

 

Exterior and Interior Design

The 2019 Civic Sedan and Coupe both feature refreshed styling that subtly updates the highly popular 10th-generation Civic design to give Canada’s favorite car an even more aggressive impact while simultaneously imparting a more premium feel. The restyled lower bumper gives Civic a wider look, complimenting a new blacked-out headlight treatment. The Honda-signature “wing” design on the grille also gets a new gloss black treatment on Sedan and Coupe. On Touring trims, the LED headlights have been upgraded with a new design to give the lights a wider and longer beam. The new, more aggressive tone gives an air of sophistication by the subtle use of chrome accents on the front bumper. At the rear, Civic Sedan’s lower bumper receives a chrome strip to emphasize Civic’s premium feel. Civic also receives three new colours: Platinum White Pearl, Cosmic Blue on the Sedan and an exclusive Tonic Yellow Pearl for the Civic Coupe..

 

Inside, Civic Sedan and Coupe models benefit from a number of subtle improvements centred on providing a more refined driving and ownership experience. The Display Audio system, standard on LX trims and above, received an updated interface that includes a volume knob and physical buttons for key functions, in addition to improved Bluetooth® integration with easier device pairing. Additional improvements on all trims include redesigned steering wheel controls for more intuitive operation, a new centre console cupholder that better holds larger beverages and updated dash trim with gunmetal gray on LX trims, metallic finish Touring sedans and with an embossed finish on Sport trims. All Civic Sedans and Coupes also benefit from additional sound insulation in the floor, trunk, and front fenders, with new sound insulation in the rear fenders.

 

New Civic Sport Sedan and Coupe

Slotted between the EX and Touring trims, the 2019 Civic Sedan and Coupe Sport trims utilize a responsive 2.0-liter engine paired with either a 6-speed manual transmission (Coupe only) or optional Continuously Variable automatic Transmission (CVT). Visual enhancements consist of unique exterior styling cues such as fog lights with gloss black trim and upsized 18-inch wheels (+1 inch) wrapped in the same all-season tires as the Civic Si. Out back, a black-painted decklid spoiler, Sport badging and a sport muffler capped by a wide, centre-mounted chrome exhaust finisher styled after Civic Si complete the package and Canadian exclusive one-touch power moonroof, Lanewatch, 8-way power seat adjustment (Sedan Only).

 

Inside, Coupe and Sedan sport trims get red gauges, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter, paddle shifters (CVT-equipped models), textured aluminum sport pedals, and unique seat materials with a combination of synthetic leather and cloth.
