Since it was fully redesigned in 2016, the fans have been waiting for some new refreshments when it comes to Honda Civic. It seems that this car has now been on its way to hit the market as a 2019 model. A rumor has it that the 2019 Honda Civic might return its hybrid version under the hood.
When it comes to exterior of the 2019 Honda Civic, this model is going to make its appearance as a four-door sedan with some sportier features. Since the 10th generation was introduced fully redesigned in 2016, there is probably no need for the carmaker to make some revolutionary changes. The new Civic will rather undergo some minor refreshments and improvements that can especially be noticed in the front fascia. The whole vehicle appears sportier and more aggressive with a kind of a swept-back dynamic look. The chassis of the new Civic is also expected to be lighter and stiffer which will improve its acceleration, efficiency and overall performance, but also its handling and stability. This sedan will represent a serious competition to models such as Mazda3 and Toyota Corolla. This edgy and futuristic styling will include some updates around the hood, its honeycomb-like grille and the LED headlights. Its front bumper will seem more massive and aggressive with a chrome exhaust pipe in the center. In the back part of the vehicle, you will notice its LED taillights and a rear wing spoiler that will add up to its sporty styling. The new Civic will stand on 18-inch alloy wheels as standard.
Inside the 2019 Honda Civic, you should not hope for anything revolutionary to happen either. Instead, the carmaker will still offer its stylish and spacious cabin that will perfectly accommodate up to five adult passengers. The only change that should be expected could happen around the infotainment touch-screen display which has been a sort of an issue. Some would say that in the current model it can be a bit slow and frustrating to use. It will provide numerous next-generation features and connectivity options, but you will also find Honda Sensing with its safety systems and driver assist features.
The 2019 Honda Civic will probably keep the same choices under its hood. The base model will use a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that delivers 158 horsepower. The optional 1.5-liter turbo-four will vary from 174 – 180 horsepower. On the other hand, this engine hits 205 horsepower and 192 pound-feet of torque in the Si trim. Each of these will be mated to a six-speed manual transmission. Finally, as we have mentioned in the intro, a rumor has it that the hybrid version of this model might come back. It would combine a 2.0-liter engine and an electric motor that together deliver 170 horsepower.
2019 Honda Civic Release Date and Price
The release date of the 2019 Honda Civic should be expected in late 2018. Its estimated price should start around $20,530 for a base model.
