In fact, the Honda Civic 2019 was already in production line since long (complete production form unveiled in September 2015) but the Japanese car maker is hatching a more strategic plan for the sedan for India. And, the Civic will be introduced in the facelifted version in the country.

There's going to be some minor updates on its styling with the front-end boosting the wide and low athletic stance as well as sporty looks. Also, changes to the rear include the updated headlights, chrome side pod accents, a full-width front splitter, redesigned bumper, lower grille, and lower fascia.

At the other end, the facelifted Civic puts on chrome accent on the lower rear bumper. The interior has not gone through tremendous treatments with only the change from its infotainment system which is now an updated 7-inch touchscreen unit equipped with a handy volume button.

In the Indian market, customers are offered with 2 powertrain options: one is a 1.6L i-DTEC turbocharged diesel unit with an output of 120 HP, the other a 1.8L i-VTEC naturally aspirated petrol, which is followed by 2 transmission options including, 6-speed manual and CVT; however, CVT won’t be available on the petrol engine. The Japanese car maker did not try their hands at a diesel automatic transmission because it may add up the cost significantly.

When it rolls out, the Honda Civic 2019 is considered to be set on par with the Skoda Octavia, Toyota Corolla Altis, and Hyundai Elantra.
