10th-gen Honda Civic receives a nip and tuck for 2019 model year in the US

Updated Sep 28, 2020 | Same topic: Automotive Industry Updates

Asia-Pacific markets, including the Philippines, are sure to follow.

General speaking, the Honda Civic 2019 will be given a more aggressive look though still based on the sporty style of the current unit. In detail, up front, the car will look bigger and more impressive thanks to the redesigned front lower bumper and a glossy black grille in wing shape which replaces the chrome one.

The side profile also looks bolder thanks to an upsized set of wheels

Moving on to the back, it is noticeable that there are a fresh chrome strip and also upgraded LED head lamps allowing longer and wider beam. Completing the exterior updates is a new set of wheels which are now made larger to 18 inches across the range.

While the exterior changes are very eye-catching, the revisions given to the inside are quite subtle yet still interesting:

  • A new physical volume knob added for the Display Audio system;
  • A larger center console that allows bigger beverages;
  • Restyled steering wheel controls.

Under the hood, the US-market Honda Civic 2019 will still be empowered by the same 2 engine options:

  • A normally-aspirated 2.0-liter engine delivering 158 hp;
  • Or a turbocharged 1.5-liter motor pushing out 174 hp.

Other goodies include a first-time sound insulation installed for the rear fenders while the front fenders, trunk and floor are also made insulated.

According to the latest car news, the revamped 10th-gen Honda Civic 2019 will be launched in the US market at the end of this year. Other markets in the Asia Pacific will soon welcome this refreshed version sometime in 2019.
