2019-2020 Honda Civic: Everything You Need to Know

2020 Honda Civic Sedan Touring

While the Honda Civic is best known for its ubiquitous sedan version, the compact car comes in enough flavors to be more accurately called a line of vehicles, including sedan, coupe and hatchback models in mild, spicy and burn-your-mouth versions.

The current Civic sedan and coupe were redesigned for the 2016 model year and got a mild mid-cycle refresh for 2019, which brought a new Sport trim level for 2019 and the Honda Sensing suite of safety systems standard on all trim levels. The sedan carries over in 2020 with slightly higher prices.

Hatchback and sportier versions of the Civic line arrived for 2017, and the 2020 gets some mid-cycle styling tweaks and added features, while the 2020 Si sedan and coupe have the safety gear standard and got a larger price bump. Updates for 2020 for the hot Type R performance hatchback have not yet been detailed.

The Civic competes against a shrinking number of other compact sedans (the Chevrolet Cruze and Ford Focus have hit the end of the road), including the Toyota Corolla, Hyundai Elantra, Kia Forte, Volkswagen Jetta, Subaru Impreza and Mazda3. A redesigned Nissan Sentra is soon to be unveiled, as well.

2019 Honda Civic

While technically not a Civic, Honda also offers the related Insight hybrid, which rolled back out for 2019 and carries over into 2020. It’s similar to the Civic overall, but features tamer styling and a very high-mileage, electrified powertrain. It competes directly with the new 2020 Corolla hybrid.

Are you interested in this compact car that offers a lot of features for the money and a version for just about every taste, need and driving desire?
