The model received a new multimedia system control unit

Following the update of the American version of the Honda Civic, the European version of the model was restyled. The Japanese slightly retouched their appearance, improved the interior decoration materials and replaced the virtual buttons of the media system with physical ones.

Customers of Civic were unhappy with the virtual buttons of the multimedia complex, so the main innovation was the return to physical switches. To the left of the central display appeared buttons for quick access to navigation and phone, and the climate control unit was also updated. The decoration uses new textured panels, for an extra charge there is an electric adjustment of the driver’s seat in eight directions.

Externally, the Honda Civic was transformed by adding L-shaped “blades” above the fog lights, an updated LED optics, which is now offered on all trim levels, new alloy wheels, including 17-inch Shark Gray. The engine range is the same: a liter gasoline turbo engine (126 hp and 200 Nm), a 1.5-liter “four” VTEC Turbo (182 forces and 240 Nm) and a 1.6 i-DTEC diesel (120 hp and 300 Nm). Cars with a younger engine are equipped with a variator, the rest with a six-speed manual gearbox.

Order updated Civic in Europe from next month. Deliveries will begin in January 2020.
