What We Like

The spacious and high-quality cabin; best-in-class power and fuel efficiency with a 1.5-liter turbo engine; refined ride and handling; three body styles; the reasonably priced Si model; the bonkers-fun Type R model

What We Don't

The frustrating touchscreen interface; hypersensitive forward-collision warning; no automatic transmission on Si or Type R; Si is a bit lacking in power relative to competitors

Overview

What's New in the 2019 Honda Civic?

The current generation gets its first significant updates this year, including a mild styling refresh that replaces much of the previous design's chrome trim with glossy black. Honda Sensing accident-avoidance tech is now standard on all trim levels, including the new Sport trim level that features special styling elements alongside a handful of feature upgrades over the base LX. The touchscreen interface found on most trim levels gains a volume knob. And finally, bad news for manual transmission fans: You can no longer pair manual transmission with the turbocharged engine in the sedan or the coupe.

Which Civic is the Best?

We can't recommend the superb 1.5-liter turbocharged engine enough, so that means our recommendation begins with the EX sedan and coupe (every hatchback already includes it). That trim should also give you everything you really need, plus abundant niceties like a sunroof, heated seats and the full touchscreen infotainment suite. Find a Honda Civic for sale

How Much Does a 2019 Honda Civic Cost?

The 2019 Honda Civic sedan and coupe offer LX, Sport, EX, EX-L, Touring and high-performance Si. The sedan adds the EX-L. The hatchback can be had in LX, Sport, EX, EX-L, Sport Touring and ultra-performance Type-R. The LX ($20,345 sedan; $21,545 coupe) offers 16-inch alloy wheels, forward-collision warning and automatic braking, lane-keep assist, adaptive cruise control, automatic headlights and high beams, LED running lights, a backup camera, automatic climate control, a height-adjustable driver's seat, a one-piece folding back seat, a USB port and a 4-speaker sound system. The hatchback comes standard with the 1.5-liter turbocharged engine. The Sport sedan ($22,045) and coupe ($22,345) add 18-in wheels, fog lights, distinct exterior styling elements, a central exhaust outlet, quicker steering, proximity entry and push-button start, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, cloth/simulated leather upholstery, a 60/40-split back seat, a 7-in touchscreen, an extra USB port, an 8-speaker sound system, satellite radio, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The Sport hatchback (pricing not available at the time of this writing) is equipped similarly but adds a more powerful version of the turbocharged engine. The EX ($24,295 sedan; $24,095 coupe) comes standard with the turbo engine, but reverts to base steering and upholstery. It adds 17-in wheels, Honda's LaneWatch blind spot warning camera, heated mirrors, a sunroof, dual-zone climate control, an 8-way power driver seat, heated front seats, satellite and HD radios. The EX-L sedan ($25,495) only adds leather upholstery and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. The Touring ($26,700 sedan; $26,300 coupe) adds 18-in wheels, the Sport's steering, LED headlights, automatic wipers, a 4-way power passenger seat, heated rear seats and integrated navigation. The sedan also adds a 10-speaker sound system. The Sport Touring hatchback combines the regular Sport trim's wheels, styling, exhaust and engine tune with all the Touring's trim equipment. It also has a 12-speaker sound system. The Civic Si (pricing not available) is equipped like the EX, but gets a sport-tuned suspension with adaptive dampers, bigger front brakes, a limited-slip differential, special sport seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, styling flourishes and a 10-speaker sound system. The Civic Type R (pricing not available) is comparable to the Touring in terms of equipment, but also boasts 20-in wheels, bigger brakes, its own sport-tuned suspension and dampers, and even sportier styling inside and out.

Competition

2019 Honda Civic vs the competition

2019 Mazda3 -- The Mazda3 is the strongest alternative. Its fuel-efficient engines, sharp driving dynamics and handsome styling are top consideration points. 2019 Hyundai Elantra -- The value-packed Elantra boasts classy styling, impressive refinement and the typical Hyundai virtues of abundant features for the money and an industry-best warranty. Volkswagen GTI and Golf R -- Here are your best bets when seeking Si and Type R alternatives. Each is a bit more grown up and refined, but still a lot of fun. Used Honda Accord -- If you like the Civic's equipment, features and dependability, but you need more interior room, you'll probably want to consider an Accord. It's priced higher, though, so you may need to find a used one.
