Honda adds Sport trim, safety tech to 2019 Civic Sedan and Coupe

The Honda Civic has always been one of the best-selling cars in America, and for good reason. For 2019, Honda's given the Civic Sedan and Coupe a bit more visual and sporty flair, and some very important safety technology to keep this all-star selling strongly. The front bumper now features deeper air intake sections that house circular foglamps, and the headlamps now have projector lenses (LED items will be offered in some markets) with redesigned LED daytime running lights. You'll need to have studied the Civic extensively to notice the difference, but it's not like the Civic wasn't already attractive before these tweaks. These include piano black accents on the lower front fascia, black 18-inch wheels, and for the sedan, an added rear decklid spoiler. Along with an updated design, the sedan and coupe receive a new Sport trim and standard Honda Sensing on all trim levels.

At the back, there's now a chrome accent on the lower rear bumper of the Sedan and new wheel designs for both two- and four-door models - including larger 18-inch rims on the Touring trim in the US.

There are no changes to the interior save for an updated 7-inch touchscreen display with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a volume button.

The news certain to intrigue most buyers, though, involves the Civic's safety systems. In addition to Sensing's clean sweep, Honda is also introducing a new Civic Sport trim with a manual transmission option.

Midlife refresh brings slight changes to the Civic's appearance; India launch scheduled for early 2019. This includes automatic emergency braking, road departure mitigation, lane departure warning, lane keeping assist, and adaptive cruise control.

I was always surprised that Honda had a Sport trim for the Fit but not the Civic.
