  • New Civic Hybrid – available as a sedan or hatchback – delivers an anticipated 232 lb.-ft.1of torque, making it the most powerful non-Type R Civic ever

The refreshed 2025 Honda Civic adds more style, more tech and with the available two-motor hybrid powertrain, a lot more power. Positioned at the top of the lineup and expected to achieve an EPA combined mileage rating of nearly 4.8L/100KM2 in the Sport Hybrid and 4.9L/100KM2 in the Sport Touring Hybrid trim, the new Civic hybrid, offered as either a sedan or hatchback, combines the fun-to-drive spirit of Civic with the award-winning Honda two-motor hybrid system. The new Civic Hybrid sedan will begin production this June at Honda of Canada Mfg. (HCM) in Alliston, Ontario.

The 2025 Civic will be available in four trim levels, starting with LX (sedan only) and Sport, and topped by the hybrid-powered Sport Hybrid and Sport Touring Hybrid. The new hybrid-electric models will represent about 60% of Civic sales in Canada as a key step in the Honda electrification strategy. The 2025 Civic sedan is expected to begin arriving at Honda dealers in July while the Civic hatchback will follow later this summer.

"Hybrid-electric sales continue to climb in Canada and the new fun-to-drive Honda Civic Hybrid will be a popular choice with its persuasive combination of power, handling and fuel efficiency," said Emile Korkor, Assistant Vice President, Honda Sales and Marketing. "The Civic Hybrid is a fantastic and important addition at the gateway of our popular electrified lineup along with Accord Hybrid, CR-V Hybrid and the all-electric Prologue. These vehicles provide Honda an important building block toward 100% zero-emissions vehicle sales by 2040."

Civic In Canada

The Civic was introduced to Canada 50 years ago and is one of Honda's most iconic and recognized nameplates. It has been one of Canada's most popular and top selling passenger cars for more than a quarter century.

HCM began building the Honda Civic in 1988 and the six millionth, made-in-Canada Civic rolled off the line in November 2023. Employing 4,200 associates today, HCM's past investments and retooling led to it becoming Honda's global lead plant for CR-V Hybrid production. The Civic Hybrid now follows on that proven Canadian manufacturing success with HCM being named lead North American plant for Civic Hybrid production.

The new Civic Hybrid will be another key step in Honda's electrification strategy, which includes equipping its core models with hybrid-electric systems. Honda expects Civic Hybrid sales to represent more than 60% of Civic sales in Canada.

The 2025 Civic Hybrid will be powered by a version of the award-winning Honda two-motor hybrid-electric system. Offering improved responsiveness for a sportier driving feel, it creates a more relaxed driving environment at highway speeds while improving fuel economy.

Most Powerful Non-Type R Civic Ever

With an anticipated combined 200 horsepower1 and an impressive 232 lb.-ft. of torque1 , the new Civic hybrid-electric powered trims are the most powerful non-Type R Civics ever, providing quick, effortless acceleration while achieving outstanding EPA fuel economy ratings. Linear Shift Control further elevates the driving experience by mimicking the vehicle speed-linked rev feel typically associated with a conventional drivetrain shifting gears under acceleration. The resulting performance is even quicker than the outgoing 1.5L turbo-powered Civic.

The two-motor hybrid system maximizes efficiency without compromising dynamic performance or passenger and cargo space. Optimized for the Civic and delivering a sporty driving experience, the refined Honda two-motor hybrid-electric power unit features two large and powerful electric motors.

In addition, the new Civic hybrids have four levels of regenerative-braking deceleration available through selector paddles on the steering wheel. The multiple levels provide a wide range of control during deceleration.

To further amplify Civic's legendary fun-to-drive spirit and class-leading ride comfort, the ride and handling dynamics of Civic hybrid have been optimized with unique spring and damper tuning, and a specifically developed tire.  Hybrid trims also enjoy the lowest NVH levels in the Civic lineup, with a robust noise reduction package that includes Active Noise Control on all hybrids, and wheel resonators on Sport Touring trims.

The Civic LX and Sport trims continue to be powered by the responsive and efficient 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine.

Drivers can seamlessly switch between selectable drive modes to optimize the Civic driving experience for various conditions. Econ, Normal, and Sport (Sport and hybrid trims only) modes feature pre-set performance settings for powertrain response, steering assist level and gauge cluster layout. Civic Sport Touring Hybrid models also feature a new Individual mode that enables customization of the driving experience.

Enhanced Design

The exterior styling of every 2025 Honda Civic is enhanced with a new more aggressive front fascia and grille, while new darker taillights give Civic sedan a sharper look. For an even sportier look, the new more-powerful hybrid-powered trims get a distinct body colored headlamp garnish and front lower spoiler. All Sport trims continue to feature dark trim and black 18-inch wheels. A new machine-finished wheel design is exclusive to the top-of-the-line Sport Touring Hybrid.

Three new colors including Solar Silver Metallic, Urban Grey Pearl and Blue Lagoon Pearl (exclusive to Civic sedan) enhance the appearance of the 2025 Civic.

Inside, the simple and clean Civic interior is refreshed while Sport Hybrid models feature a new bold contrasting stripe design on the seats. Sport Hybrid also comes standard with a moonroof, heated front seats, heated leather steering wheel and dual zone climate controls.

The Sport Touring Hybrid adds leather seating, a 12-speaker Bose premium audio system and intuitive technology, including a larger 9-inch touchscreen with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto™ compatibility and a wireless smartphone charger. All Civic models now come standard with front USB-C ports.

Google built-In

Additionally, the top-line Sport Touring Hybrid features Civic's first integration of Google built-in. This includes apps like Google Assistant, Google Maps and more on Google Play for a helpful, personalized and connected driving experience.

With Google Assistant, users can get things done while keeping their eyes on the road and their hands on the wheel. Talk to Google to easily call or text a friend, set reminders, or even change the temperature in the car. Users can also navigate to the next destination or look up what's nearby. For example, Google Assistant enables users to set their destination in Google Maps using just their voice, with the route map then displayed in the instrument cluster.

Drivers can control their media by asking Google to skip to the next track or rewind a podcast using their favorite media apps with just their voice. Google Play enables users to download various 3rd-party apps for music, podcasts and audiobooks, just like they would on their smartphone.

Safety for Everyone

The 11th-generation Civic is a safety leader in the compact class thanks to advanced active and passive safety technology that comes standard on every Civic. This includes Honda's proprietary Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure designed to help protect occupants in a wide variety of frontal collisions, along with advanced supplemental restraint systems.

The Civic's driver and passenger front airbags were designed to minimize the potential for severe brain trauma associated with angled frontal collisions. The front driver's airbag uses an innovative donut-shaped structure to cradle and cradle the head to reduce rotation. The passenger-side front airbag uses a three-chamber design with the two outer chambers designed to achieve a similar result. All Civic models also feature pretensioning front seatbelts, and front, side, knee and side-curtain airbags.

Based on Honda's long standing "Safety for Everyone" approach, which focuses on advancing safety for everyone sharing the road, all Civic models are equipped with the Honda Sensing® suite of safety and driver-assistive technologies, which includes Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™) with Pedestrian Detection; Forward Collision Warning; Road Departure Mitigation (RDM) incorporating Lane Departure Warning (LDW); Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS); and Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC). All models are now also equipped with Blind Spot with Rear Cross Traffic Alert.
