The Honda Civic has been a mainstay of American roads since first introduced in 1973. In fact, it’s become one of the country’s best-selling retail cars. For 2019, existing Honda Civic Hatchback configurations have been upgraded with standard Honda Sensing driver assistance technology and a new Sport trim.
The team at your local Hampton Roads Honda dealer will be happy to talk through key differences, but why not go ahead and get the lay of the land right here to start finding the right model to meet your needs?
The Honda Civic Hatchback brings a 1.5L in-line 4-cylinder with turbocharger across all trim levels. Sport models fit a center-mounted dual outlet exhaust for an uptick in power.
As noted by CNET: “The power figures of both of those engines are greater than average.”
Engines fitted with the Continuously Variable Transmission (LL-CVT) are rated up to 31 mpg in the city and 40 mpg on the highway*. Standard with the Sport and available with the Sport Touring is a 6-speed manual transmission with close-ratio gears that makes up to 29 mpg in the city and 38 mpg on the highway*.
The Honda Civic Hatchback brings state of the art Honda Sensing safety features as standard for the 2019 model. Even entry-level models boast:
Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™)
Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM)
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow
Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)
Comfort, convenience, and entertainment features are similarly generous for an entry-level trim.
Automatic Climate Control System
60/40 Split Fold-Down Rear Seat back
160-Watt Audio System with 4 Speakers
5-Inch Color LCD Screen
Bluetooth® Streaming Audio
Radio Data System (RDS)
Speed-Sensitive Volume Compensation (SVC)
The Sport trim delivers upgraded performance without breaking the bank, and it’s no wallflower even at standstill thanks to bold exterior accents.
18-Inch Alloy Wheels
Center-Mounted Dual Outlet Exhaust
Underbody Spoiler Kit
Sporty styling carries over to the interior.
Sport Pedals: Enhance style while providing a high-grip surface for surefooted control.
Leather-Wrapped Steering Wheel and Shift Knob: Keep your hands comfortable even while handling hard.
Dual-Mode Paddle Shifters (CVT Model): Upshift or downshift on the fly at the touch of a shifter.
The EX model can be considered the Honda Civic Hatchback all-rounder since it brings every element of your drive up a notch from the standard model without focusing too much on one area.
You’ll appreciate the Dual-Zone Climate Control System and One-Touch Power Moonroof during longer journeys, plus the following high-end technology:
Having a Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System fitted as standard is clearly a key attribute of the EX-L Navi, especially considering the system’s features:
Since satnav systems are popular with drivers who spend plenty of time on the road, the EX-L Navi also keeps you in first-class comfort.
The Sport Touring combines leading power with luxury features and advanced technology.
Whether keeping you cool during the height of summer or providing high-end audio, Sport Touring features are a cut above what you’d expect from the average hatchback.
