The 2019 Honda Civic is a well-round compact vehicle, available in hatchback, sedan, and coupe, with a range of interior amenities and now-standard safety features designed to make each trip safer. The Maguire Honda of Ithaca staff helps drivers enjoy their travels throughout Ithaca, Elmira, and Corning.

Our review of the 2019 edition of the Civic will take a closer look at vehicle performance, interior amenities, and the aforementioned safety features.

Civic Performance

The Honda Civic comes standard with a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine, delivering a peppy 158 horsepower and 128 lb-ft of torque. The standard 6-speed manual transmission is able to shift smoothly and efficiently, though a Continuously Variable Transmission is available, which offers solid power while keeping fuel economy steady.

A turbocharged engine which produces 174 horsepower is available on the Honda Civic. With fully independent suspension and a more powerful engine, drivers will enjoy more spirited performance than found on the base engine.

The Civic is a highly efficient vehicle, as we've been talking about. Trips to the gas station to fill up are few and far between. For example, the Civic coupe is capable of receiving an EPA-estimated 30 MPG city/38 MPG highway1. Enjoy your drives and spend more time on the road, and less money at the gas station.

The Honda Civic Interior

Whether driving the sedan, hatchback, or coupe edition of the Civic, you'll have enough space for five people in two rows. The available leather seats look great but feel great as well. The standard 60/40 split-folding rear seats provide more space for cargo. The Civic sedan trunk is above-average in size for a vehicle in this class, with up to 15.1 cu. ft. of space available. The coupe carries about 12 cu. ft. of trunk space. The second row can be folded down in any model for up to 46.2 cu. ft. of space.

Go where you want with the available Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System and find your destination in style. The multi-angle rearview camera has three different views to keep you apprised of your surroundings at all times. You can even start the engine before getting in, thanks to the remote engine start capability.

Honda Sensing® Comes Standard

The safety suite known as Honda Sensing® now comes standard on every Honda Civic model. This suite of safety and driver-assistive features will let you know of things you may not pick up on while driving. Receive braking assistance using the Collision Mitigation Braking System, if a potential collision with a vehicle in front of you is detected.

Use the Road Departure Mitigation System to your advantage. You'll receive an alert letting you know if the Honda Civic is about to leave the road. This system can also take action to prevent this from happening.
