What the Critics Say

The sedan is the most popular 2019 Civic body style, even if it’s easy to mistake as a hatchback at first. Its silhouette channels the Audi A7, the poster child for svelte styling. But where the Audi’s tail ends in a utilitarian hatchback, the Civic features a conventional trunk. This year’s styling updates swap chrome for glossy black accents up front for a cleaner look.” — The Car Connection
Honestly, Honda could have sent its engineers on a yearlong vacation to Tahiti rather than task them with updating the 2019 Civic. We’ve been giving this generation Civic top marks since its debut three years ago, and there’s nothing else out this year that’s going to steal the car’s title belt. But here we are anyway with an even better Civic.” — Edmunds

Numerous updates and revisions have been made to the Honda Civic Sedan for the 2019 model year. All Civic Sedan models now include standard Honda Sensing®.
